my PC is back in the house, working (after a fashion). The hit it took from a TrojanHorse was major and the necessary fixes were just as major. As a result I have a brand new system that is now "basically" working. Each individual component has to be "reset" , passwords need re-worked, the whole thing is a major project for which I have no patience so it goes rather slow.
I had a conversation with the tech. who spent the greater part of yesterday here in the house : I am considering living the rest of my life WITHOUT a computer, it seems to me that the coveniences are far outweighed by the threats, shutdowns, attacks that these system have to go through. I have been hit TWICE with Identity Theft. The first one for 13K $ took months of work, and now this.....
So I may revert to the simpler life : paying my bills with a cheque and mailing in an envelope, with a stamp.
JUST TIRED, I GUESS..... I don't much like the world, the way it is now.
the major oral surgery I went through last Monday doesn't improve my spirit too much, either.
vented : moving on :
