Over the yirz I'v seen a dozen or so previewz during the Simpsonz and wunderd if maybe I shoud giv it another chans.

Yeah. If I remember correctly you were annoyed by him not actually being the last man on earth, and for the first few episodes with Carol (Kristen Schaal) the interactions were weird but once the cast fills out with a few more survivors, I really liked it. The whole cast is good but Mary Steenburgen as Gail is my favorite. Maybe try out the first couple episodes of Season 2 and see how you like it.

Periodically I am getting a pop-up warning from `Microsoft` that my MS security is broken and that in 200 seconds a fix will be automatically applied. Escape doesn`t help and there is no decline button or X to delete the window, forcing me to use Task Manager to blow off all open Explorer windows. If I proceed as suggested it jumps to a weird and definitely NOT Microsoft site and wants me to download a `security suite`. I think not. :roll:

I use a pop-up blocker and a url-redirect-blocker and a...wait, what is this one? Ah, okay, TWO pop-up blockers for some reason. Anyway, my point is, I had a similar problem and these programs made it go away.

I also recommend above^ware.

It's almost (ahem) MILSPEC.

Don't pay for it, tho'. The free civvie version is good enough if you remember to manually run a scan every now and then. It's certainly consistently saved me better than any other "removal tool".

I don't mind saying Symantec is the worst. Everyone knows that. It's public knowledge.

Ditto last 2 points.

I'd add Bitdefender to the arsenal.

I'm using Bitdefender on his laptop I borrowed. (It had some other useless pay-for-use crap that had expired and kept popping up "renew me! your computer will die! oh no!" nonsense, so I replaced it.)

OH! And I got a phone call from Vancouver about my computer that I sent to Mississauga (the other direction from Vancouver). They're repairing my desktop computer and it will only cost me $500 because of things. hooray

seems to me this page is again under DDOS attack.
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

Nope, prostate biopsy was scheduled last week, but this is my 13th day in hospital. That one is now piggybacking on my endoscopy/colonoscopy that will be looking for a bowel blockage.
