Awesome!  Maybe we could even start earlier due to it not being part of the work week. Any other Euros want to jump online Saturday for chatting?

I'd be there, just struggle with later nights being this side.

As of Friday, my world turns upside down anyway, so I'll have a lot more time on my hands and it'd be good to keep chatting with you guys :)

Well, was the Japan Earthquake caused by the "supermoon" or were the lower than expected Gary Gygax items the result of it ?

Who knows as we discuss the mysteries of the universe :)

Ok everybody - we have a new topic for the Friday night chat.... Prufrock!

All kidding aside, hope you are able to raise it by Friday.

I got a special present for you.  Just open that email I sent you and click on the link (like I did - I'm such a dumbass) and you too can be shopping for a new computer.

My computer was 6 years old and the hard drive was on its last leg so when the virus hit it hit hard.

I do not click porn links; I had them all set up in my hidden favorites folder.  Now I will have to re-establish that folder and gentlemen that was a very good folder.

KingofPain recently sent me a nice detailed list of actions to take and software to look into.
Much of the software he listed can be downloaded cheap or even free.

That is actually what he does for a living ...
You might try to shoot him a PM and ask for some advice/pointers.

Microsoft Essentials has gotten good reviews... and it's free.  For a step higher, I use Norton Internet Security.  I like it because unlike every other antivirus suite I've used, it doesn't hog system resources.

As a former IT guy, let me urge you to do yourself a favor and buy your anti-virus/malware software! In this day and age it's imperative that you not so much as plug in your ethernet cable or wireless USB thingamajig before installing it. Surfing the Internet without protection is like going on a weekend whoring trip to Bangkok without condoms. Norton and McAfee are both good, so long as you keep the virus definitions updated (just schedule it to happen automatically). I've used both, and never had a problem. If you look at the event reports they can generate, it'll give you the shivers.

Are you sure your old PC fell prey to a virus? If so, it's probably salvageable.
