Hello CTH

S'been years but the fact is I am still alive.

Been through 2 serious operations (stents) and collapsed [a couple of times] at work and had wonderful ambulance rides.
Doctors and I didn't always agree. Thank the stars we still have choice, I truly believe that is why I am still here.

I'm working for telecommunications now and I don't know why but everyone seems to want to work from home and do MS Teams or Zoom to pretend we all work together.

So much has changed in the World and how it uses computers since I was here last.
When I left 85% of the devices online were stand-alone stations (computers at work or home) and now 88% of the online connections are smart phones.

I won't do anything serious on my smart phone especially finance related tasks.
The best security today is provided by banks and governments copy the banks.
For my security needs it is Windows 11 hands-down.

Anyway Hi to people that knew me and hello to the ones who don't.

Crikey, look what the cat dragged in!

Welcome back Mr Spider, sorry to hear about your health problems, but I hope you're feeling a lot better these days.

Remember the hours we spent chasing spambots and what have you, here on CTH? Fun Fun Fun!
