49 YEARS ...


Story HERE


Had a very enjoyable night with Judy & Richard. 2 of their 3 computers are infected with that "WINsys 2000" virus. That has been around for at least 4 years and nobody has developed a cure. It is targeted at Internet Explorer© browsers. This is one of the major reasons that I use the Firefox© browser. It isn't subceptable. This virus doesn't just download a program, it actually installs code on your XP© operating system. Way deeper than any anti-virual protection goes. I told them to see if they can find the original CD to re-install Windows© on the PC. That will erase everything on the disc-drive and then you start from "fresh". If than doesn't work, then I'll see if I can download Linux© to a CD and load up both their PC's

Talked to TMR tonight and he told me that he only had 5 runs all of Sunday night and that Kimo had even less. Sounds like last week's burst of activity may have fizzled.

St. Patrick's Day is the next big event. That also marks the beginning of whatever "springbreak" season we might get. Easter isn't very special, cab-wise. After "springbreak" will be "Cinco de Mayo", an obscure Mexican holiday that the spirits industry of America has adopted as THE drinking holiday of the year.

I am going to spend the next couple of hours searching for new images for THE PICTURE GALLERY. See you tomorrow, after work. As always:





Over The Limit?
Please don't drink and drive

"Let's all be careful out there!"
