I am just curious why my other malware/spyware/virus software did not detect the stupid thing.
Questionable sites? You mean like BF?? Curiously the site that I was trying to search for was the weight weenie site and the stupid virus sent me elsewhere.
Porn & lyrics sites come to mind. It was more of a joke though.. =]Questionable sites? You mean like BF?? Curiously the site that I was trying to search for was the weight weenie site and the stupid virus sent me elsewhere.
It doesn't have to be pron or cracked software sites.
I got infected by doing a google search on somebody that died that day and clicking on a "bio" link. I found out later that folks launching new malware like to get up sites quickly that are "in the news". Google finds them and they are high in the search (maybe they are paying for this to Google?), but Google hasn't gotten them on the "possible bad site" list as of yet. And the malware is new, so it isn't in the list that your "protection" is looking for.
It really sucks.
I'm the world's forgotten boy. The one who's searchin', searchin' to destroy.
They try to scan for malware (their Website Admin management page tells you if your site has Malware on it) - so my guess is it's just that they don't detect the malware in this case, as mollusk said.

For anybody using safari, the clicktoflash plugin is awesome. Really speeds up browsing and prevents stupid flash ads from bogging everything down.

Not many things geeks love more than geeky books. What books do you have at work (or school) right now?
I've been filling my new office with classics like:
- "C++ Programming" from Stroustrup
- "Enterprise Computing with Objects"
- "Maximizing .Net Performance"
- "Design Patterns" (the famous blue/white one from Gamma, et al)
- "Object-Oriented Analysis & Design with Applicaitons"
- "How We Test Software at Microsoft" - got this one for free since the guy who wrote it works a floor down, need to get an autograph..
Anyway, what does your work library consist of?
It's kind of like dungeons and dragons with armies instead of characters. Or like Risk, I suppose.
I used to buy a ton of the Tyranid stuff because I loved painting them. They're all at my parent's house. I used to spend like 40-50 hours on each one of the miniatures...
And besides, I need something to fill my shelves with!
A side-note: my new rule about buying books is that I don't buy anything with a version number in the title. They just don't last long enough (e.g. .Net 2.0, etc)...
- W.Richard Stevens in general.
- the dinosaur book
- Computer Organization and Design by Patterson and Hennessy.
- the Java language spec
Somehow all of these seem to stay useful. The one must-have that's somehow continued to elude me even though I've been out of school for almost 10 years, is a set of Knuth's TAoCP. Practicality aside, I find it hard to take my own CS degree seriously without owning these books.
hmm. i've just moved in to a lead architect role, so i should really update my library...
if I recall correctly, ACM members also have access to books24x7. or maybe it was a safari discount. i forget...and i let my ACM membership lapse this year.
Library = awesome. I've been working from home the last few years and one of the things I miss the most (aside from the social stuff) is the library. Local public library is of course a joke when it comes to computer related books. That annoys me quite a bit as I have a ton of still-relevant books I'd happily donate to them; but they just turn them around and sell them for $.50 each, rather than actually stock their shelves.
Wait, what were we talking about?
Random segue I know, but anyone ever play around with remote mini-submersibles? I have zero robotics/EE experience but stuff like this seems so cool -
- K&R is the Kernigan & Richie(?) book on C, right?
- Stevens is the TCP Illustrated book? I have that one! Love it...
- The Dinosaur book is the OS book? I had that one in college, wish I'd kept it
Another book I had in school that I wish I'd kept was the famous "Dragon book", e.g. the compiler book..
As for the Knuth books, I too feel unworthy for not owning them! One of these days..
