Lol, ahh dear Norton you make me laugh.

My computer just threw up a message that said

Your computer is protected from intrusion attempts. FIX NOW.

Yes please, I'd like to have it not protected.

I've just been for a drive into the Big Town and I would just like to say one thing people.

Keep left unless overtaking.

It's not rocket science.

    lol at Norton!i've had 2 days of people driving 30 in 40mph zones. This is SoCal, everyone knows that 40 means GO 50!! I don't know why people are suddenly driving so slowly on this main thorough fare. But, of course, I don't remember till I'm stuck in it.

    Drives me nuts. Or the people you get stuck behind who toddle along just under the speed limit then as soon as we get to an overtaking lane, they take off and go about 15 over the speed limit.

    Please unprotect your computer immediately. If Norton says so, it must be true! Just like when McAfee nuked entire towns' worth of computers (and the entire university where I work) by sending out an update that identified a Windows dll file as a virus. That was fun!Mr. sKz started an argument with me because I mentioned I knew we were back in north Texas because people are more than happy to ride your bumper for an extended period of time before angrily changing lanes to blast past you even though the passing lane was totally clear the entire time, while in the Austin area, people seemed to have a loose interpretation of what constitutes "staying in your lane." He angrily insisted it was not possible to characterize an entire region based on people's driving and besides which he never notices it.I wasn't sure what to point out – a) he hasn't driven in almost three years, b) he was the one who got three speeding tickets when he did drive, or c) clearly he's one of those assholes whose lousy driving I notice.

    lol – people are more than happy to ride your bumper for an extended period of
    time before angrily changing lanes to blast past you even though the
    passing lane was totally clear the entire time – too trueWe live in a huge coal mining area so there are always heaps of trucks on the road. Often when I'm out in my little getz I feel like I'm in a scene from Duel, they sit so close behind you. As if they can scare you into going faster. Or the truck overtaking another truck up a steep hill taking up all the overtaking time so no one else gets past. Thats a good one.Lol, or the four way stop sign – no one has a clue what to do with them.I think we are known as an area of bad drivers. Heard it on the radio, not sure what we specialise in. Although it could be bad merging.

  5. intrusion attempts! I wonder what they look like and do they bite?
    No one keeps left and they all think that the other drivers will hold them up – never contemplate it might be them doing the holding up!

  6. cat Says:

    I don't know but Norton thinks I should have them.Sigh, so many selfish drivers out there. And stupid ones.

  7. LeendaDLL Says:

    people have figured out the 4-way stop in front of my house: they all ignore it!!how about flashing reds when traffic signals go out? it's supposed to be treated as a 4-way stop sign but, instead, becomes a free for all!

  8. cat Says:

    Lol – yeah, gotta love a broken traffic light – so long as you're not trying to turn across the coming traffic.

    Huh, that is in a perverse way, funny.

    I thought it was hilarious! Not sure anyone else did. And then what had me rolling on the floor was a job posting from McAfee the very next day for a "Manager Emergency Response."

    Who is this Norton?I live in Mac world luckily : )

  12. cat Says:

    oh shut uphey, is it you that has the Iphone?

  13. Crush-Monkey Says:

    Your comment made me giggle!Yes…i have the iphone…it's almost a year old. it's the version they dropped the price on without video. (my old cell phone before that was an old old OLD nokia like 8 years old so it was a shock to upgrade!)

  14. cat Says:

    I'm thinking of getting the new one coming out later this month. Are you happy with yours in general? What issues does it have? Because I need a new phone and I need a new Ipod and I figured if I got the Iphone it would solve both problems

  15. Crush-Monkey Says:

    Oh I love my iphone!!!! VERY happy with it. It's at&t and i've had them forever…i haven't had any problem with service. It even worked for me in London and aruba!
