I want everybody to understand the danger of what could happen here. Left, right, liberal, conservative, it doesn’t matter. This affects everybody the same.
Remember the history of computer viruses? Once people started writing computer viruses (for malicious or profit based reasons), antivirus software began to be sold to protect your computer against viruses.
Every time a new virus was discovered or created, protection and recognition of the virus was added to the antivirus programs; which is why they are regularly updated.
Because of the competition between the antivirus software creators, they started offering bounties on viruses. Anyone who turns in a new virus to Norton or Microsoft can get paid, and the company profits by selling a new update.
So, people started writing new viruses specifically to sell them to antivirus companies.
Over time, these antivirus programs became very hefty and began to bog people’s computers down.
Fortunately, computers are a man-made invention and we understand exactly how they work, and computing power and speed has advanced much more quickly than the generation of new viruses, so your computers are still able to handle the antivirus software.
We are entering the age where people are now technologically capable of writing new viruses for humans.
You really, really, don’t want to see an arms race between biological weapons and vaccine manufacturers, much less when the two entities are profiting off of one another.
The only way to prevent this cycle is to end the profit based motive.
Don’t buy into a vaccine subscription service. You have to resist at all costs or there will be enormous death tolls in the 21st century.
This take is brought to you by my father, a computer programmer for 20 years.
Science denial takes many forms, from geodesy and geology, to human biology and human evolutionary development, to virology and epidemiology.
And yet, they somehow never deny the science that empowers them to ramble online like ignorant fools about the conspiracy theories they use to rationalize that denial.
Hey, do you have any antivirus recommendations? I deleted McAffee because I found it annoying.
Ahoy! Thank you so much for asking, because this is something i absolutely have! From personal experience, i definitely think that getting rid of McAffe is a good idea. It has a tendency to add a lot of "Bloatware" (Software whose usefulness is reduced because of the excessive disk space and memory it requires.) to your computer, and has a fairly rocky reputation. It is often bundled with other software and even some new computers, and tend to take up a lot of your CPU when scanning files. I absolutely understand that you find it annoying! It's basically a program made to pry upon less tech-savvy people, to get them to pay for McAffe's mediocre-at-best service.
Now, being done ranting about McAffe, let me come with some recommendations. The first one being "Malwarebytes," which i personally use.
If i ever can afford to pay for any "premium" anti-virus programs, it'd be Malwarebytes. The program can be downloaded for free, require no account and no payment info.
After installing i usually activate the 14 day free trial, and when that trial runs out, i simply tell it to deactivate the premium-mode, and then use the free version. Sometimes when updating i get new offers for premium trials, which i usually take, although the free-mode is plenty good enough.
When using the free Malwarebytes, i always make sure to manually scan any new downloads. Aside from that it does most stuff itself, most importantly including periodic scheduled scans.
Due to it being a hot minute since i last did some research around this, i made sure to do some now! And seemingly the most recommended anti-virus of 2022 is called "Bitdefender." The free version seems to cover the same grounds as Malwarebytes, and i've found no mentions of any major issues with this one either!
I have also seen some people discuss how the included Windows antivirus should be good enough, i do not trust Microsoft enough for that, but will make sure to look into this. The most important when using ANY antivirus is to make periodic scans, keep the software as updated as can be, and ALWAYS scan newly downloaded files! Remember this when you find yourself downloading files, ESPECIALLY if you are treating yourself to some piracy. It will save you from a good 99% of any malicious/harmful files out there!
I hope this has been helpful! If you have any questions, requests or anything else, always feel free to send asks or message me! If i can't find it, we might be able to get someone to put it out there!
It didn’t matter what you wanted, you knew that even if you abhorred the needle, he would slip it under your skin. But you didn’t. You don’t know when that transition happened between enduring and anticipating but it must’ve been slow for you not to notice the small changes in your body when he came in. The heart that had beat so hard from fear that now beat just as hard in expectancy. He might have known it too. Might be able to tell the way your body didn’t angle away from him anymore. The way you no longer hid the arm behind your back that you knew would be subject to testing his most recently acquired virus. A virus sure to bring a burning fever making every one of his touches enhanced in its euphoric high. But you think he knew. Because he didn’t used to be able to look at you. And now, as he slides through the cracked door his eyes flick to yours.
