I hail from the mountains of Utah, where I live in a cabin surrounded by 6 feet of snow. I work at a solitary job as a woodworker so my computer and internet gets me out. I am not too technically proficient with computers, though I wish I was. I did have a summer high school job at $1.25 an hour running an IBM card sorter one summer back in 1968 or thereabouts, with an IBM 360 as the big machine in the office. That was when IBM gave you little plastic placards with THINK printed on them to remind you to do that, which you sat on the computer. Mad magazine did a take-off on that, spelling THIMK instead of think. Anyone remember those little plastic placards? I'll bet they're collectors items now. Anyway, off to the malware forums . .

Welcome to the forum!

Yup, I not only remember but I have one of those "Think" signs in a box somewhere (worked for IBM for 20 years). You can find them for sale on Ebay.

To Err is human; to really foul things up requires a Bleeping Computer!
