I agree.

I checked my PC just to be sure that it wasn't my fault.
I actually had two similar incidents ~5 years ago.

One time some bot(?) did send an email from my account (the email was in my Sent folder)!

If a person had accessed my account they would have seen how to send a more convincing email.
I always include a warning in my Subject line about attachments.
In the email itself I always describe/mention any attachments or links that it contains.

I have warned my friends that if they receive any emails that don't follow that pattern, they should destroy them and email me.

No vote here, Win2000 was my favorite of the past though of course out dated. After reading a few pages here it seems time to try Win10 evaluation on my old laptop. How bad could it really be

Edit: Now I see 10 may just be a preview, may be a waste of time with that.

Well Dell must be doing something different. I keep reading windows 7 can't support new hardware. I am going to have to disagree with that. My all-in-one computer does. It supports windows 7 and above. It also supports a few Linux distros as well. I am sticking with windows 7.

I think i 'll be sticking with 7 till its support ends...
Have 4 laptops at home (one 2nd generation, two 3rd gen and one 4th gen). All have official support for 8 but all are rocking 7.

The Consumer Preview is coming out next month. That would be good to try.

Folks have done upgrades from XP, Win7, and Win8 and they all worked.

But BEFORE you install Win10, understand that an Update does not allow you to go back to what you had before; instead, you have to do a clean install from scratch.

So, image off your existing install with something like Macrium Reflect before you do the upgrade. That only takes a few minutes and will be easy to restore later.

Four reasons why people will not need a smartphone:

1. Disabled and home bound. The computer is a nice way to be entertained and work.

2. A good computer station with a comfortable executive chair and cushioned foot rest

3. BIG screens! I could never enjoy working on anything smaller than 19 to 25" screens.

4. Cost too dang much in USA. Average ISP cost in the states is 45 dollars monthly. Add a smartphone to your monthly costs for G4 networks and now you're up to another 100 to 150 dollars. Total: 150 to 200 a month! That's just not justifiable for people who do not need a smartphone for work. My 12 year old Kyocera Cell Phone at $29.00 plus tax a month with Verizon works just fine for me. Even has voice dial and text messaging. (don't really do text messaging but love voice dialing.)

What other reasons do you feel a person would never need or want a Smartphone?

I used 600 minute plan for years then it was dumped and the only plans were 900 or 450
Euro/ u.s. dollars are about the same beside all of the freaking fee's..... which doubles what ever the quoted price is advertised :/

2010 Hurricane prediction
So a recent Reuters article says the Colorado State University hurricane forecasting team predicted 8 major storms this season. Well, even one can be bad news. I was pondering a question; if it wasn't for the side affects of radiation, I wonder what would happen to a Category 4 if you dropped a...
