  4. In June of 2010, Webopedia removed your authorship by-line from, “The Difference between a Virus, Worm, and Trojan” I think you should be given credit for it.

    • Thanks so much for the vote of confidence! Actually that article is one of my favorites. Webopedia recently launched a new website (have you checked it out?). Author names and bylines on articles were not intentionally removed. I do expect that bylines and author names will be back on the individual article pages in short time — and again I’ll be credited with teaching people the differences between Viruses, Worms, and Trojans. :)

  5. Hey there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!

  6. Wanted to let you know that I think your blog is a great and enjoy reading your articles.
    I also wanted to invite you to ping and tweet your blog for free with my website BlogBuzzer.com

  7. Your blog is great reading… thanks !

  8. I saw an online article you wrote about cleaning a computer. I hope you can help me with a related question . . .

    I have a workstation that was used in the same apartment where a little too much food way fried. As a result, the dust inside the workstation box no longer comes right away with compressed air. The dust also causes the workstation to operate at higher temperatures.

    Do you know how I might go about improving things — or can you refer me to anyone who might know


  9. Take it to a local computer repair shop for a professional cleaning! :)

    If you can’t do this and you find a can of compressed air is not strong enough — unplug the box, take it outside and put on a dust mask. Try a small air compressor (like the small ones for pumping a tire). Do the CPU fan and heatsink first, then work your way top to bottom. As each layer falls on lower components, you clean that falling dust as you move down. Hope that helps!
