Exclamation Are YOU Safe From the Big BLACKOUT Tonight?

If you aren't diligent about antivirus and malware execution prevention you COULD be SOL tomorrow. A favorite means malware uses to do its dirty work is to route your web addresses through a proxy......THEIR proxy.

This link will show in an instant if your DNS is going where it supposed to go >>> Malware check: http://dns-ok.us/

If you don't get a green light there you WILL have a problem come midnight!
YES this is CRAIG here.......not some rouge application! A rouge wouldn't know anything about Model T Fords.......

Hey, Craig!

Back in the day, a lot of rogues had Model T's. They were cheap, which allowed them to buy more beer.

Take care - Elden

Rouge is what women put on their cheeks. Rogue is a miscreant, like Eldon! Spell checker won't catch errors like this.

Thanks Craig,
I couldn't hook up the first 3 times, but the next one showed a giant green box and a link to the FBI website for more information. Pretty impressive! and pretty neat jargon you used to convince us all it was you... reminds me of something I've seen somewhere on Star Trek or some futuristic android movie somewhere in years past?

I just clicked the link and got the message Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage, but as it is 12:14 AM I guess it's already tomorrow and I'm still on here..... For the time being anyway.

I guess time will tell, if I'm able to log on again later in the morning. Been on-line for about 3 hours, so now I don't know if I want to log off and try it again.

I wasn't sure exactly how to read that.... whether you would get disconnected at midnight, or if something would happen that you wouldn't be able to log on again after midnight.

I guess I'll find out for sure in another 8 or 9 hours when I fire up the confuzer again in the morning. Still here at 1:06AM, but I logged on around 9:30 last night.

And I forgot to throw this little tidbit in before.....

Beware of Rogue Women Wearing Rouge !

Like Phylis Diller, Tammy Fay Baker, and Mimi from the Drew Cary Show.

I still can't get that link to open, but since I am back again later this morning, I guess you're all stuck with me until the next attack.
