BUG!

So, we spent our day wiping our hard drive with an "area 51" disk. That's right, we got a BUG. This one was particularly heinous, even going so far as to completely annihilate our Norton's anti-virus program, causing it to have total fatal errors. So, we put the baby pictures on disks, and music on disks, and a few programs we didn't want to hunt for and wiped the computer back to factory specs. I HATE BUGS. We seem to have gotten this one from a blogspot blog. Indy's dad was cruising the blog-o-sphere using the "next blog" button conveniently located in the upper right hand corner of most blogs that are powered by blogger. He got to one that proclaimed "HA HA YOU ARE INFECTED" and indeed we were. So, be careful out there folks! And for those of you in the US, happy thanksgiving. I will be spending mine re-installing all of our crap back on to the computer instead of watching football. Sigh, Damn BUGS!

I've used that button one time, but I won't again. When I did use it, I got so many foreign language blogs it was senseless.
How sad that people are so ruthless as to just do this just because. Thank you for the warning.
I hope you & yours have a pleasant Thanksgiving.

Oh,no! so sorry to hear about that. I have used that botton, but never again. You may delete that top bar from your site, I did it on one test blog of mine. Instructions are under blogger.help (I think...) Michele sent me this morning, but I wanted to show up anyways. Thanks for your kind comment yesterday. Have a happy thanksgiving with your loved ones.

My sympathies not fun when the dreaded bugs attack

Would steer clear of Norton product though, not the most effective anti-virus about, and pretty invasive to the windows registry.
I tend to use McAffee products instead
