I'm writing this in the middle of the worst storm we've had in years. Wind is gusts are reaching 60mph in the city, it's raining sideways, and there are a lot of people without power (although, thankfully, I'm not one of them). If it's like this tomorrow, I'm not leaving the house unless I'm dressed like the Gorton's Fisherman. When I was leaving work, the bottom floor of our parking garage was a lake being fed by water boiling out of storm drains like a gyser. It was pretty cool, actually- I think if I still had my Jeep, I would have gone through it, but I didn't think it was very wise to try and brave it with my Jetta. So I turned around and left through another exit.
So when I set up my new computer, I re-downloaded my virus program of choice (which I've always been very happy with). Although, apparently, I neglected to download its firewall as well, and now I'm dealing with a pair of Trojans. They're quarantined at the moment, and I'm preparing to get rid of them, but man. What a pain in the ass. What kind of dickface writes a computer virus, anyway?
