Don't Let This Happen To You

I was stupid. I was working in and another forum and got hit with a dialog box that I couldn't close asking for permission to change the hard drive. I thought it was the typical adware. It was worse, much worse. It was ransomware. https://theartsmechanical.wordpress.com/2016/06/08/being-held-for-ran...

How Muc Do Regulations Cost?

I walked into the kitchen and MSNBC was on with Al Sharpton lambasting Republicans for talking about light bulb and ceiling fan regulations.

Re: It looks Like Layoff Season Is Starting

It's not just Obama, or just the Democrats. It's the whole government/corporate system that's become dysfunctional. Somehow, in arranging things for their own comfort far too many people have forgotten that there's a reason for doing what they do, that where they work isn't just a bureaucracy functi...
