    Tomorrow the April 1 Conficker worm is set to become live in millions of unprotected computers that access the world wide web.
    Is your anti-virus software up-to-date and running?

    I always wake up to AM radio, (yeah, I'm strange) so if the virus is that bad I just won't turn it on until I know how to deal with it. My anti-virus is okay, but still...

    I've fully backed up my computer and the BYC website / forum to multiple locations.

    In general I'm pretty particular about backups.

    Here is what I do for my personal computer backup process

    Here is what I do to backup databases for the forum.

    Can never be too careful with data backups!
  8. Virus, Shmirus. Its all a big ploy so you will download and buy those big expensive virus programs that do nothing but SSLLOOWW down your computer to a crawl.

    Oh, BTW, it you don't see me on the site for awhile you will know what happened.
