While working a neighbour's daugther complained that she had a report due tomorrow, and she couldn't print it, so I offered to help...

I asked her to give me a disquette with the file, but it was corrupt, so I payed her a visit later to see what I could do...

Her PC was about 8 years old and was still running Windows 98, I soon discovered that her sister has one of those illegal P2P programs and...

NO ANTVIRUS! @o@

Actually they were lucky they had an obselete S.O. since most virii target Windows XP, and they were lucky it had no permanent damage...

I quickly installed Grisoft's AVG Antivirus which removed the virii and then she could finally access her report..

Well, their mouse was dead, but being an 8 year old one, I doubt it was the virii were to blame!

And their printer was out of order too, but since it was also 8 years old, the virii couldn't have done anything to it, the port recognized the scanner but not the printer, and after trying a few things I just new there was nothing I could do for it...

But hey, I saved her from having to redo her report! Wiigii!

They gave me 10€ for my trouble, which I only accpeter since they insisted, and then returned later to make sure there was nothing I could do for the printer and showed them how to use Firefox!

In other news, my BLC Calendar and the Telethon Book arrived today! I need to get a binder clip to prevent it from getting damaged when I hang it from the wall!

Also, I will resume selling my stuff on Ebay, as soon as I find out where everything is, that is...
