    All the money that exists cannot buy Earth, and the evidence is that we destroy our habitat as a result, thinking that we can just seize and pillage as we see fit. If crowds endorse the pursuit of wealth at their own level, they cannot prevent multinationals from doing exactly the same. The “dystopian endless growth paradigm” is going to end with a bang but will open the door to a premise endorsing that Earth is the only wealth we truly have while journeying through life.

    Maybe they should look into Linux.

    that reminds me, is Avast still da bomb?

    I recall it saved my bacon 2-3 years ago; got some (((nasty virus))) whose name I forgot; but that puppy would only go 10-20 sec's between throwing you another popup (after you'd X-out the last) about how your comp is infected, go here to fix yada yada. I joogled the supposed name of the virus which the fake popups (titled like, "Windows System Defender" or some such non-existent program) said I had, and they'd joogle-bombed joogle with an array of supposedly 'different' tech sites offering advice, all of which ultimately funneled down to buying (((their own BS))) "fix"... which, after "running", would undoubtedly set up my box as some sort of spam/virus central hub! And, perish the thought of what would be in store for any personal/CCard info they attained. I mean, (((they))) really had a full circle dinjoo-nuffin-esque business model set up!

    I didn't already have Avast on that latest box, and I can't recall what prevented me from downloading it (prolly that same virus?), but a friend passed Avast on to me over skype, I ran it, (((problem))) solved.

    yes still good AV. I think they bought AVG which might be a good thing for AVG. It started out good but started bloating and getting some kind of inconsistencies in versions. Strange situation to describe. Was getting back on track when bought up. Dropped quite a bit in user satisfaction rankings. But then what people like and whats good are often not the same thing.

    What happens if the bitcoin world exchanges get hit and cleaned out? Is that possible?
