Stupid wankers is a bit harsh, don't you think?*

I mean, weren't you the same poster who recently had a problem getting the YouTube coding to work for you on this forum? I'm just saying that a lot of this "computer stuff" is deceptively simple looking but is, in reality, confoundingly complex for a lot of average users.

I probably shouldn't even be on the damned thing, myself, since I honestly don't have a clue how a lot of it works. All that said, I did learn a long time ago that a good anti-virus program is essential for Microsoft users.

*Sorry if I sound like a scold, but I genuinely felt sorry for that GM guy in your anecdote. I don't, personally, expect GM execs to be any smarter than the rest of us when it comes to web-surfing. That and running a major auto company are two entirely different skill sets.

yup! expecting everybody to run a computer like a geek when I'd rather some of them were concentrating on maybe saving a few lives or growing a few things is a bit much A little understanding of others goes a long way

I never did understand that line of thinking, that everyone should know everything and know it equally as well as everybody else. What is the point of that? That would be really boring. (And mean none of us would have jobs, really) And not give us anyone to make fun of. But if someone is already acknowledging xe doesn't have a clue, why not a shove and kick in the ass in the right direction, followed by the laughing and pointing? At least then one could claim the I Was Being Helpful token.

If everyone listened to her, there'd be no janitors, because no one would clean shit up if they had a million dollars.

You don't have to have a million dollars to do nothing. Take a look at my cousin. He's broke, don't do shit.

I'm not so sure about the substantiation of malware, but wanking is always a good idea.

If malware can in any way enhance my wanking, then I am definitely in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How do you put it on, and what size would I need?

A theist is just an atheist with a space in it.

Uh, we're already there. A million dollars will you get you a starter home and a decent car in Toronna. Next, you're gonna hafta be a wage slave, sell drugs, or have the connections to get a good paying job in order to pay the taxes and insurance.
Wheeeee...I'm set for life - won a million - yeah, right - that was true back in the fifties, today it's a pipe dream. But the yokels keep buyin them lottery tickets.
Used to be called "the numbers racket" and run by the mob - now, it's "the lottery" and run by guvmint. Same folks.
Ever sit down and figger out how much income you can earn on a million at today's interest rates? Better learn where your local food banks are|!

Then consider yourself lucky, because the last virus I removed for someone blocked access to safe mode. Those malware writers employed by the "antivirus" folks are clever cunts.

Just start visiting porn sites and you're guaranteed to experience the thrill of malware. It's akin to the feeling you get when you discover your home has been burglarized, or your car has been stolen. Enjoy!

I don't know where Toronna is, but if it takes a million to buy a starter house, you need to move.

Come to the land of cheap housing, aka Dallas/North Texas.

Granted, that comes with a price: you have to deal with a lot more Jesus-junkies than in other parts of the country.
