Out of the Blue

It's Veteran's Day here in the US and Armistice Day elsewhere. Here's a salute to vets.

I'm a little off schedule this morning, pain/drugs from my tooth extraction had me up late and consequently sleeping late. The dentist was sort of appalled at the dentistry that she had to clean up, so it must have been terrible, because it's hard to get doctors to speak ill of each other. Sigh.

This may be a false alarm, but that "pdf" in the link makes me suspicious

I got hit at work by a .pdf virus, while browsing a random bustercoverage link. Both Avg and MSE popped up whining about it, AND I got two UAC notices.

And yet it still managed to install three fucking trojans that I'm trying to get rid off.

I'm fairly sure this came from an ad here, but I'm not 100% certain.

Well that's not good. Sorry about that, and thanks for the info, I'm looking into it.

exploit script generic

This may be a false alarm, but that "pdf" in the link makes me suspicious. Anyway, I had several tabs open but I belive I got it when I reloaded blues.

To everyone else: I put spaces into the link so that it wasn't clickable, I suggest not going to those sites unless you are extremely careful. Personally I picked block rather than allow.

Blue:

Sorry to hear about the teeth. Oddly enough I had a filling today. I like how they do them nowadays, they use a neat little light pen to cure them (instead of a limited working time where its stuck in a bad position if they can't work it out before those 2 part fillings cure). Takes about 5 seconds and bang they are cured.

Am I the only one that finds it funny that when power goes out (Brazil) everyone goes outside? What sense does that make? I would probably just go to bed - or throw the beer in a cooler so it stays cold.

We are coming up on the 2 year anniversary that nin was without power for a number of days due to an ice storm - hope no one has to do that this winter. Little different when it is sub zero outside.

Thanks you vets who fought in the wars that actually needed fighting. Supporting the troops means not putting them in harms way unless absolutely necessary.

Okay now, that bear attack is really amazing. Not just the damage he did, but the repair job made to fly it home. I have to admit they grow 'em tough in Alaska.

Thanks, service men and women, current and inactive, for all you've done for us.

Dentists suck. I've payed a fortune having work done, only to pay another fortune 2 years later to redo the work.

I'm waiting and saving to get all my teeth replaced with implants. They last.

Much thanks to all of the vets out there, we would be in a different and worse place without you.

I've been going through some dental issues myself lately. Botched root canal turns into a bad infection and incredible pain turns into more drilling and more pain. They didn't even bother prescribing pain meds, which is alright because I don't really like being on them, but damn ibuprofen can only go so far. I feel for ya.
