Retarded tinfoil hats part deux

i blame science education.
not enough people realize that radio signals aren't a magical force that gives you cancer. People fear what they don't understand, and if its forced upon them, will resist it to an irrational end.
I've heard stories from good friends of mine, normal people, that this is a plan to slowly make us sick, because big pharma and big Power are in cahoots… :???:

Look out for the nasty nail sticking out at the end of Pingu

Looking at the end, it does indeed look like a bolt, so likely not bendable very easily.
Pack a small hacksaw instead, 5 mins worth of work should do it. (i'd offer, but haven't been on pingu in years)

shoulder surgery doc in van

im trying to remember the name of a shoulder specialist surgeon in van. He ended up fixing my shoulder about 5 years ago at UBC.
Odds are he also did some shoulders for other people here, can anyone offer up some names? shot in the dark, but still.

As I actually work for an computer security company, my opinion is by definition biased.
So here's the none-biased version;

There are a lot of free AV software programs out there. Pick one that works, and use it.
Microsoft has a free home-use one as well (security essentials) and is actually pretty good. Their catchrates are decent, and false positives are really low. There's other free ones (malware bytes, avast, avg), as well which are ok, there are useless ones, and there are fake AV programs that cost you money and do nothing.
The argument that AV is useless for new viruses because its all signature based is complete BS. Every AV company has been using at least some sort of behavioural analysis for the last 10 years to get around the volume and polymorphic sample problem (each binary/script being slightly different than the last). Everyone has been developping this tech as well, so that argument died in the 90's.

The myth that all a virus does is slow down your computer and you should learn to live with it because its just as slow by having AV is foolish.
Its not just "making it slow", its doing something.
Usually redirecting your browser to pull ads from other sources (they make money via ad affiliate schemes), duping you into paying for software you dont need (fakeAV, etc) or actually stealing your credit card info, banking access, facebook, gmail, twitter or any other login credentials, to then dupe your friends to click on their spam/links/malware links, etc.
Your friends will trust links you send them via facebook/email more than ones they see on a random website.. get it?
Other ones (zeus/zbot) sit on your system till you log into your banking site, and make transfers to other (offshore, usually russia/ukraine) accounts from within your session.
This shit is sophisticated as hell.
Put it this way, if you have anything of value ON your computer, or access anything valuable WITH your computer, its probably being targetted by someone.
I wont ramble on, but the problem has gotten to the point of a bad spy-novel.

To those of you that got hit with something, and saw your computer behaving wierdly, and weren't running some av at the time, scan your systems. There are loads of free scanners out there that will remove malware.
You probably have got something.

Either use malware bytes (malwarebytes.org)
or use our free emergency distribution (self-extracting command-line scanner):

Norman, check to see if the vbulletin board version doesnt have any known vulns.. really common way attack sites/db's to get your scripts in it.
PM me for more info.

Bike Racks for cars

hmmm im in the same boat right now…. roof or hitch….
As a canadian who's moved to the UK, danielb is right, i havent seen a single underground parking garage yet, so its unlikely to get caught on something.

Im more worried about the fuel economy has anyone done an accurate count on how much it goes down with a bike on the roof?

Does Northshore rack have a UK distributor yet?
