I’d love to win Free Pick Up Stix for a year. To me, Pick Up Stix tastes better than Panda Express. I just wish there were more Pick Up Stix in the area.CONTINUE READING
If you’ve got a Gateway, and malware *due to your pr0n surfing* has gotten you to the point where you don’t care whether you can save anything, and you’d rather just restore it to factory settings, go ahead and run Gateway eRecovery.
If you do NOT have Gateway eRecovery installed, hit and hold F8 to get to Advanced Boot Tools to Boot your PC in Safe Mode WITHOUT Networking. Save your important files, and then reboot again. This time use ALT + F10 to get your recovery options.
If you’ve got a bootleg version of Windows Vista (God Forbid) or Windows 7, go ahead and pop that bootleg disk in and click “Install Now” to install a clean version of Windows. It’ll save your old files in a windows.old directory for you to access and/or delete later. SCORE.
I’ll write some Malware Quick Tips soon…

I finally convinced my mother to cancel her AOL Dial-Up account. It has been a tug-o-war since 2000.
You see, by the time I had graduated from high school and been accepted to USC (Go Trojans!) under early admittance, I had already hacked into several small networks using AOL Dial-Up. “Security” wasn’t an issue back then. No one had a strong “secure” schema for “security”. *shrug*
So when I arrived at USC (Go Trojans!), and I was able to tap into a T1… I thought I was the hot heifer on the skreet (not “street”). And AOL Dial-Up was a red headed step-bastard…in other words, NOT POSSIBLE – NOT AN OPTION (N.O.).
I was bougie now. AOL Dial-Up? Psht. Pligga Neez.
However, it was good enough for her. She had a good government secure high-speed network on base everyday. She wasn’t concerned about having it at home too. If SHE was happy. I was happy. I mean, I didn’t go home as often anymore…but she was happy.
Fast forward to 2010…
Mom wants a new laptop.
The bargain: I’ll give you ONE OF THESE *holding up one of my 1 year old Gateway Laptops* … the day you cancel AOL Dial-Up.
My life hasn’t been the same since.
After countless text messages and email messages, it became MY job to power cycle through AOL’s chain of 800 #s to hit their India based cancellation crew.
If I had received one more “Did you call yet?” text message, I was going to plan an attack on AOL over a V.92 56k bit rate modem.
I mean, how did it become MY job to cancel something I been telling her to cancel for YEARS because SHE wants one of MY laptops? I’d been #swindled.
What took 14+ years to deal with, took 5 minutes to diminish.
Interesting how shed been paying $34.99 per month for 14 years and it took our calling in for them to offer her a “New Great Rate” of $4.99 per month.
*middle finger to AOL*
Dear AOL, I hate your face.
