No. I am not channeling Cher. Bitches, Bastards, Devils, and Demons - the whole lot of them. I hope to hell Pat Robertson has not declared that God has put a curse on me or that some ObamaRamaDingDong Mafioso has not taken out some sort of contract on me I have some frigging gypsy, tramp, thief, bitch, bastard, devil or demon or all of the above pestering the living shit out of me and my computer. As soon as I turn on my computer I do a full scale scan of my entire computer before I do anything. My system tells me I'm as clean as a whistle. Bloody 'ell, I am! The damned thing is popping up over top of my security scans telling me my computer is about to keel over and fall down Mt. Everest and on into the bottom of the ocean if I don't update my database security NOW! It identifies itself as "PC Security" and comes complete with a little icon with a blue shield and white stripe. I'm continually getting these little pop-ups giving me the option to install now or remind it later. I keep telling the thing to remind me later ... and a couple minutes later it does that. It wouldn't be quite so irritating if it would wait a few days ... or weeks ... until it reminds me. I also have this thing identified as Trojan.DeskTopBlocker.cd popping up. Albeit irritating as hell, it's been quite interesting - I really won't describe it as "amusing." When I go on various websites I sometimes get this big red screen-sized warning that the site has been identified as extremely dangerous and has been reported to Microsoft. So far I've been notified that the Better Business Bureau is possessed and has been reported to Microsoft ... I've been warned that Microsoft is going to run a red hot poker up my ass and brand me with a PMNT (that's Polish Mutant Ninja Turtle for the uninformed) and that it has reported this threat to ... Microsoft. God love Microsoft for reporting itself to itself. This afternoon I got a message notification on my Skype icon. Soooo ... I clicked on and I had a message from "Viagrow." Well, damn. Being female, I was quite sure I had no use for Viagra ... but then I thought maybe it could be some kind of DoubleSpeak or ValSpeak for "there's a virus growing." (The "ancients" among us may remember the wave of undecipherable ValSpeak from the Valley Girls that once swept the nation.) Aw, com'mon! Some of you guys have got to remember being gagged with a spoon or being totally tubular. But I digress. Back to message from Viagrow. It said it was this new Euro something or other with a brand new product with a limited first time offering. All I would have to do is contact them at http:\\oemsoftwareshop.net. No "www." just "oemsoftwareshop.net" Well, I'm going to be sure to do that! NOT!! I hit the "block" option and closed my Skype window. And I hate you, you Euro-prick bastard.
