I keep seeing more and more short posts by frustrated blogging buddies. They are frustrated because their computers are virus infested, crashing, burning, and need to be tossed into the street. Virus infested computers put a real kabosh on blogging!
Oh, I feel your pain. That USED to happen to me. ALL THE TIME.
But I figured out the problem - - - well, actually it was TWO problems. They have names: Fisherhubby and Number Two Son.
I do not know WHAT they do on the computer, WHAT they download, but I'm here to tell you that a SHARED computer is NO computer because it will continually fill up with viruses.
So, here's the solution:
Get yourself your OWN lappy. Password protect it. Don't tell anyone - - - not even DH- - - the password. NO ONE. Then as long as YOU don't open virus infested e-mails or download from crazy sites, your lappy will stay clean.
Lappies are quite reasonably priced. They can go with you so you can blog wherever you may roam. And best of all, they are PERSONAL - - - they belong to YOU. A password is a marvelous thing.
About six months ago, Fisherhubby called me at work wanting my lappy password. I said, "No way, Jose!" He wasn't very happy - - - but guess what??? LAPPY IS STILL A VIRUS FREE ZONE!!!
I've had lappy for about two and a half WONDERFUL virus-free years.
So, go invest in your OWN lappy. You will be soooooo glad you did.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
