Beware new facebook virus

Remember, anything you click on can infect your computer - so if you are trying to view a video on Facebook, for instance, and it tells you you need to download or install anything to view it, IT'S A VIRUS.  Don't do it.

It may say it is a required addon, codec, decoder, viewer, whatever - but it is really a virus.  Don't trust anything that tells you that you need to install or download something to be able to watch a video.

New Laptop!

Toshiba Qosmio X75- A7170 17.3-Inch Laptop

This is what I got!  It's running Windows 8.1 which is a bit of a learning curve, but once Windows 10 is released I'll upgrade.

Dead Laptop

My laptop died Monday, I was hoping it was just the power brick so I ordered a new one for $30.  It came in today, but no dice - dead laptop. 

It was a Gateway P7811-FX which served me well, was an awesome laptop. Now I have to figure out what to replace it with.

I'm behind in my reading, but this is awesome...
