    internet jargon

    i like the attachment, see virus and vis versa. seems to be the way the internet is these days, it's near impossible to get online and download an honest attachment without geting bomb with some stupid ****. I mean why should you have to pay for protection against viruses, I remember when VSAFE on windows 3.1 was just enough to keep ya clean and running fine. I mean if your gonna be online your GONNA need virus protection, and chances are unless you get free internet access like me, your paying good money for internet access that gets screwed by viruses almost daily.

    I never ever ever ever run virusscans. They just chew up too much precious memory. I'll probably regret it one day, but there you are. If you just stick to downloading **** from legitimate sites and use your common sence about files you shouldn't have a problem (I haven't had a problem in 5 odd years without a scanner)...

    You don't know that yuo don't have a problem. The only way to know you have a problem is to have a virus scanner. Though I shouldn't speak, because I don't have a virus scanner either.

    Oh well live life on the edge
