*perks her ears up*

Psychology, you say? :D I sat in on some courses during the summer for case management and rehabilitation and I think that is the route I wanted to pursue as well, including the minor in Theology as my school requires. (My parents on the other hand have been hinting that perhaps I ought to do Psychiatry instead >.>) But indeed; Happy Birthday to your little one, and good luck to your elder daughter! The courses looked a bit rough, but all the professors and students that I spoke to all agree that it can be a very rewarding career. ^_^

Ah psych... I remember taking that after failing Latin. Can't say I remember any of it though... Good luck all the same and, in case I don't get the chance before the day, merry Christmas to you and to all!!!

I'll most likely be away for the next few days to one week. I was taken and admitted to the hospital this past Monday and was released on Wednesday due to a kidney stone. I'm still in A LOT of pain, so walking from the bedroom to the bathroom is quite a chore and it's only a few feet. Never had a stone before and quite frankly, I never want one again. I wouldn't even wish this on my worst enemy!

Hey gang, just your crazy Grand Admiral (/Surface Marshal/Director-General/all-round-resident-crazyman/anything and everything else I missed) just popping in to say:

1) Sorry for my extended and unannounced absense.
2) Don't expect things to improve a whole whole lot in the near future.
4) I'm going to make an effort to try and lurk around a little more frequently than I have been as of late.
5) What the hell happened to number 3?
6) Work is kicking my sorry arse lately. A boiler rebuild has just started at my work and the months leading up to it we have about 1000 contractor employees running about on days, nights and crazy shifts... Not to mention my department is a little woefully understaffed.
7) I'm not dead yet!
8) Wb Drav!
9) Wb Sy!
10) I think I've got everything out I wanted to say...
11) No wait, Spyk, I'm still working on your lounge tag!
12) Now I'm good.
13) Oops, no! Laurel, I'm also working on that other side project in what little spare time I do get my way!
14) Okay, now I'm done!
15) Seriously, I am!
16) Yep, that's everything!

See you all soon!

YAY, Fini's here! I've missed you!! *superglues him to the wall* I owe you some posts too, toots. I'll get to them, I swear it! Jeff and I have both been sick these past few days and I had to have my eyes looked at at the hospital.

Welcome back, Fini, for however long you can stay. Like Drav said, we'll still be here, whenever you can get back.

On another note, looks like it's perking up a little bit again. Keep it going, people! :)

Not a LOA, I have a bit o' family news. Some of you may know that my youngest daughter, Iria Natalie Ayanna Eriksson started taking piano lessons last year. She had song and piano, which means she's playing accompaniment. After a few months, her teacher asked if she also wanted to train standalone piano, which she did. A couple months after that she got started on a new book, learning more complicated songs.

I've just been to a piano concert. Not a big thing, around 700 spectators. She picked The Drunken Sailor for her first performance on the piano, and it went just fine. At ten years old, she was the youngest artist present and the only one from her school and piano class.

I'm somewhat surprised by this development. I mean, I know the girl has talent. I just didn't expect her to be, er, that good that fast. Maybe it'll pass once she discover boys, hurr.

Thanks Sy. I dunno about Beethoven, but as if I needed it, I got another confirmation today. She got to skip ahead of todays piano homework and is doing the next step instead. Not going to tell her about my observations unless she gets a bout of poor confidence. While time flies, she's small for her age, actually. She's riding on her best friend during breaks.

Also, I'm, erh, more busy than usual this week. Not sure I can complete C1M33.

How precious! And good for her! I had always wished that my mom signed me up for piano lessons. It was that and I also wanted to play flute and guitar. I have a guitar now, I just need to actually pick the thing back up and resume my lessons at some point.

Hopped on to hubby's comp for a bit. I'm mostly LOA for up to three weeks. My computer has been hacked and also infected with numerous worms/trojans/viruses. Since our bills are coming due in the next two weeks, getting my comp cleaned is going to have to wait a little bit. First thing disabled, of course, was my antivirus but I think it was a crappy one anyway so I have to buy a new one or take the comp in so I can be charged a liver and a kidney to have someone else clean it :evil:

It's dangerous to surf alone, take this!

http://www.ubuntu.com/download

Seriously, take that, make a Live CD with it (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCD), and use that to clean out the temp files/virus files (check in places like C:\Windows\Temp, ..\system32, etc.. Then boot to safe mode with networking (F8 on startup) and kill startup entries things in msconfig (if Windows 8, the startup items are in the Task Manager's advanced pane). Install, update, and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (www.malwarebytes.org) and Spybot Search and Destroy (www.safer-networking.org) to remove other virus files. Take two cat videos and call me in the morning.

Or just nuke'm; either way, you'll get clean.

Well, here's the thing, Spyker. I did some checking today and apparently my computer is only infected with a virus called XP Internet Security 2010 ( http://www.2-spyware.com/remove-interne ... -2010.html ) From what I was reading, this (http://www.anvisoft.com/resources/how-t ... ogger-gen/ ) is part of it? A little lost on this as I do get that annoying pop-up that's shown in the image. I'm not running XP either :lol:

I had both Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Spybot Search & Destroy and they didn't find/stop anything.

Right now I was able to finally get Avast Antivirus installed and now its running. This may take a while as its only at 1% and it's been running for the past half hour. I'll keep you posted on what happens. And thank you for the assistance! I sincerely appreciate it. Especially if it'll wind up saving me $60 - $100 and not destroy my computer or lose my files in the process!

Ah, funtimes. I suppose I should set up a little corner of the site here for tech support, eh? Anyways, Avast should work; just make sure you remove it or your other AV once everything's normal again! Remember: two AV programs will fight each other and kill your system. Never run two real-time scanners at the same time.

You may need to remove some files; take a look in system32 and the various temp directories. If you want me to take a look more directly, I've got a handy little remote access program I can use if needed. Just let me know and we can work something out.
