Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


GR Mailbag: Our Mailman Has A Terrible Cold

Posted on Monday, August 26 @ 12:13:14 PST by Duke_Ferris

Dearest GR Mailbag fans,

As most of you have noticed, we haven't updated the Mailbag in several weeks. The reason? Viruses. Lots of 'em. Like, thousands.

But it's not what you think. No one is specifically out to get us or trying to bring down the GR machine 'o fun in the name of some small, useless country, like Belgium.

Rather, it's a simple matter of GR being around for so long and being on so many random e-mail lists. See, we've been getting nailed by copies of the WORM_KLEZ and WORM_YAHA viruses.

Both of these viruses operate along the same lines. When executed, the worms propagate themselves by sending copies out to members of the infected user's recipient list. It will attach a random subject line, though over time you'll see some repeated more than others.

The KLEZ is particularly interesting because it also randomly changes the 'From' field. This makes it very hard to track down the infected computer. On more than one occasion, a member of the GR staff has gotten a copy of the virus that they apparently sent themselves, despite the fact that none of us work on any infected computers.

Since the various GR mailboxes are on so many random recipient lists, we have literally become a lightning rod for the viruses, getting in upwards of 200-300 copies a day across our boxes. Due to sheer volume, this has made it very hard to check and sort anything beyond our personal GR accounts.

Suffice to say, we're working on the problem and we hope to have some solutions shortly. In the meantime, please bear with us and don't be angry that we haven't been updating the Mailbag. Instead, check out the big Mailbag Archive and relive some of your favorite letters and answers. That's what we've been doing, at least.

- GR
