Not just because of my age, but because of the trojans I've been battling. Ad-Aware found nine (eight from one class, one from another) on July 9, then two more on July 11. This means that either a.) my computer "repairman" failed to thoroughly purge my hard drive or b.) the new stuff he installed on my system was infected. Needless to say, neither possibility inspires confidence.
Many other things about this dude also fail to inspire confidence, like a.) he admittedly knows nothing about software, except how to install it, b.) he doesn't know what an URL is -- I kid you not, c.) he doesn't use any anti-spyware programs and seemed unaware of their existence, d.) he thinks the Internet is evil and should be avoided at all costs.
So if you don't see me around much, it's because I'm so effin' paranoid right now I'm barely comfortable checking my email. Let us hope this, too, will pass (and that Repair Dude isn't a Christian who spotted the error of my ways and decided to mess with me on purpose).
