I noticed this comment about on-line scanners elsewhere on the internet and thought it worth mentioning it here :thumbsup:



'An on-line scanner opens up your computer to an external site to down-load a program that gives them potential to access everything on your computer. So it's like leaving your front door wide open while you're having a nap.'....frightening thought ?

Okay, and your point is?

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
