Internet Security - AND YOU

Today was my first day at Best Buy. It was pretty cool. One thing I noticed was I ended up numerous people the same thing. So I just decided to tell them my Blog address and I would post the information. Maybe I"ll just start posting technical things that I come across working at Best Buy. First off, you want to make your computer secure. No Pop-ups, No Spam, No Hackers. More importantly you want to do it cheap. How about Free is as Cheap as it gets. So I'm going to tell you how to secure your computer and do it FREE. You may ask, but Joe - how does it compare to the products you buy? Well, these programs actually work Better! So I'll give it to you straight here, if you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me. I'm hand feeding you now though just click the links and download and install and you're ready to go.

First you need virus protection. Uninstall your current virus protection and install Grisoft's AVG Anti-Virus. Just so you know, AVG is only free for home use. If you're a business, church, or other non-profit organization please read before downloading. Otherwise, they will never know why or who is downloading it. This is just for your conscience, but if you're a home user go ahead and download.

Second you need a better browser. STOP USING INTERNET EXPLORER! It's insecure and it's wide open to spyware and viruses. Instead download Firefox and get into the habit of using this, it's secure, doesn't allow pop-ups, and if you check my last post you can get some sweet themes. Give it a chance you'll fall in love. Firefox is always updating and it's open source so if a problem arises there isn't just a staff of people in a company working on it, the whole world bans together to solve the situation in hours. It's pretty cool.

Third you need a better mail client. The same people that made Firefox made a program called Thunderbird. This is a much, much better alternative than Eudora or Outlook. It's really nifty. You can do RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds and subscribe to my blog if you like. You can do the research on that or look through my blog. I wrote an article about that last month sometime.

Fourth you need some type of Spyware remover. Get rid of the spyware that's already on your computer with the following programs. Ad-Aware, Spybot Search and Destroy, and lastly for advanced users Bazooka.

And Lastly, you need to keep everything under close watch with WinPatrol. Scotty the watch dog will patrol your computer for any malicious content or changes in preferences and file extensions. Man's best friend he is.

Well, I have a long drive ahead of me and I'm going to call my girlfriend. If you have any questions you can find my e-mail address in the view my profile at the top left by my picture. Don't be shy, and if you are you can just post a comment and I'll answer when I get the chance. I won't have internet access 'till Monday so hang tight.

She Loves Me!

I haven't posted in a while because of all the stuff that's been going on but on Monday, Feb. 28, 2005. Elizabeth "Betty" Anthonia Oregon told me that she loved me. That day was a mix of emotions. She told me that she was leaving school on Wednesday. This wasn't a quick trip home and back, this was leaving school. She was struggling paying her way through school and wasn't going to be able to take mid-terms, I told her that I would help her but the other reason she left I had no control over. Her father is ill and she wants to go back home and take care of him. I told Matt my room leader that if I didn't want to marry a girl who cared enough for her father to drop out of school and go back home to take care of him, then I was an idiot! Ok, so it's Monday morning and we're walking to Apologetics when she breaks me the news. She's leaving on Wednesday. So you're wondering if I was bummed, OF COURSE! I was kinda sad all through Apologetics, I put my head down and she asked to borrow my pen. She started writing what I thought were notes from the class. My head was in my lap thinking how I could fix things even though I wouldn't be able too. Larry, my friend, was sleeping on the floor like always. Betty wrote me a note and put it in my shirt pocket, she told me not to read it until next period before chappell. The note said that she knows that everything will work out ok because "I Love You." WOW!!! My heart jumped. I met her in chappell and she tried to take the note out of my shirt pocket where she put it. I told her that it was too late and that I already read it. I told her that if she ment it to tell me to my face. Which she did. I didn't know what to say, do I say "I love you too?" More important, did I actually love her? I told myself 5 years ago that I won't tell a girl that I love her unless I was willing to marry her. I thought about this all day. I went to dinner with my friend Eric and talked to him. I then decided to Drop the L-Bomb. So that night I told her that I actually loved her. It was a relief to be honest with you. I could feel our relationship building up to that point and it was like the pressure was gone. I had shown her through my actions that I loved her everyday, but now we had reached the point where we could communicate that verbally. Now I can tell the world. I Love Elizabeth Oregon.
