Man vs Machine

For the past few weeks, I've been sorting out "programs" on my computer. Apparently, there's a swarm of adware (you know, programs that send info from your computer to corporate computers, and why pop-ups appear here and there on your screen) and removing them was more difficult than pressing the delete button.

There's also the fact that a worm infected my computer and caused my computer process to be working at 100%, slowing everything down. After searching which program was causing which, that was easily conquered by the delete button.

And there's this latest new worm, sasser, which is similar to the blaster worm in the fact that you don't even have to get it from an attachment; other computers connect to you and infect you.

Six Days to Go

It's almost election time and Philippine politics is as surprising as ever. Various claims have been made by various parties, and I'm sure by the end of the week, more "surprises" will pop up.

On a side note, I think I've been inadvertedly volunteered for the supervision of the ballot counts.
