Hackers suck ass (you heard me!) -- actually, I'm projecting (I suck for letting this happen!)
My computer was trashed by a virus. Obliterated. The f-ers...
While checking work e-mail (which runs incredibly slowly via dial-up), I looked at a .org site that Health Magazine suggested. My work e-mail, at times, requires software applets to be loaded. Being tired (<--excuse), I got what appeared to be an alert for one of those and ended up saying Yes to it (Just say no, indeed).
This stupid thing installed some weird "intelligence browser" toolbar on my browser that started downloading all kinds of crap, including a major virus that just an hour ago trashed my machine.
Fortunately, the My Documents with all of my work docs is backed up daily. I lost all of my Internet favorites, though, which means tons 'o great library media and automation sites are gone. At least I got through my workshop before this heinousness ensued.

Patt***, I'm sorry to hear about your loss. If it is of any help, I am willing to donate a robust collection of "upskirt" Web sites to help rebuild your catalog of favorites.
Oh, and I must say this ... While what happened to you really stinks and makes me sad, I must admit that it really gets my blood pumping when you ladies start throwing around the curse words so liberally.

I've shrunk my Internet world considerably since the crash of my laptop on Monday, so thanks for the offer of sites, but I'll pass Ugh, this sucks. I'm going to be cleaning this up for some to come... I have no printer access as yet, Word keeps coming up with an installation error, I've lost half of my distribution lists and e-mail contacts for work, etc. Just yucky stuff.
poster child for just saying no to installation applets,
