Very nice, Derek - it is nice to know you're not toiling away, unappreciated and anonymous! And in a regular newspaper too - not a PC magazine. A great plug for your dear little hedgehogs, too - one of my favorite animals (not that we have any here, but I still think they're sweet little animals).

I think I missed where it mentions GTG. Nonetheless, still nice to be in the news.

Good question! It was still cool that you got some recognition, so we'll let it slide. :)

Congrats for your recognition.

BTW. anyone see somthing wrong in this line:

A key tool is HiJackThis (hijackthis.de), which scans the system for malware and then produces a log that can be uploaded and analysed to identify programs that may be unsafe - in which instance the program offers a "Fix This" option, which will remove the nasties. (It is worth noting that the forum posts are full of cautions about double-checking to avoid accidentally deleting programs that may be vital to the functioning of the system.)


Hijackthis.de isn't the home of Hijack this!

But noone will know :)
