hi all
hawklord - 19-4-2008 at 16:15

hi,

i'm hawklord, some people already know me from other forums,

i'd like to introduce myself - waveysmileyhi allwaveysmiley - there you go,

hopefully i'll be able to help around the virus section with my meager knowledge,

i've been fighting malware for about 2 years now and had some training in the various removal techniques and have my own set of programs that i like to use - but i'm still no expert,

my pc has been infected once, by a nastie called wareout, this infection and the removal is what started me on the path to malware removal knowledge,

sometimes i will log-on then log-out a few mins later, this is not because i am doing a runner, its because my primary operating system is linux and all my tools and canned replies are in windows, so i have to swap systems (i dual boot),

i also run vm's (in my windows) which are all infected to some degree to better my understanding of removal,
its easier to infect a vm than my 'real' windows and it does not affect my 'real' one,
i will gladly ruin a vm for anyone - if it helps in their particular problem

so thats a bit about me

once again waveysmileyhi allwaveysmiley

Welcome! We shall appreciate your talents.

I hope you will also take a look around in the other sections at Karlsforums. We discuss weighty subjects and lighter ones. If you find a book or movie or joke worth recommending, or an interesting web site, we'd like to hear about it. We have a diverse group of people here, including a number who have grown to be friends. If you enjoy something, some response to that post will encourage them toward posting more of that kind.:)

This quotebox from Quaver is from a problem-solving session which is likely to sink to the bottom of activity after the problem is solved. I thought a personal reference from one of our well-known posters could build confidence among people here who need help.waveysmiley

Hi Hawklord. Nice to see you here. :)


Dreamweaver - 19-4-2008 at 18:06

Hi Hawklord, nice to meet you, I hope you enjoy your stay here. Although I can see you have made the virus section your home already, I am sure Charles is very grateful for your help with his PC

Once again welcome flowers_kf


SRD - 19-4-2008 at 20:34

Hi, have you brought Ph_P with you? :D


giron - 19-4-2008 at 21:26

Greetings, hawklord. waveysmiley

Any idea what this means?



' phpBB : Critical Error

Could not connect to the database '

shocked_yellow


marymary100 - 19-4-2008 at 21:38

I'd hazard a guess that the host was down..............


giron - 19-4-2008 at 21:44

Ruddy hell, mmC, that computer study course you attended, recently, sure seems to have come in useful! waveysmiley

BTW, why is the host going ' down ' ?

It sounds rather rude, if you ask me! shocked_yellow


marymary100 - 19-4-2008 at 22:03

Maybe all rude things are going to be cut off in their prime........


giron - 19-4-2008 at 22:09

Which, probably, explains why lee ended up posting in a high pitched voice, over at the Purple Place! :o

What say you, hawklord? waveysmiley

Don't bother to invite Ron Beard, he's a miserable old sod! lips_sealed

TooCute4Words - 19-4-2008 at 22:50

Welcome to the forum hawklordw_kf.gif

I assume from your username that you like the great prog/space rock band Hawkwind - but I'm probably wrong ;)


janet - 19-4-2008 at 22:59

Welcome. :)

Pixie was indeed a member - and iirc, a mod - many, many moons ago.

Perhaps not the same person...

The Pixie we know is PC wizard, Homer gnome is his custom user title, and has been a member since Dec 2001 which overlaps with Karl.

That is there most well known song and probably their biggest seller. I get sick of hearing that one :( and that performance was probably something that David Brock would like to put behind him shocked_yellow

Listen to the one I posted above - thats a total contrast (All 10 minutes + of it) Magnificent!!!!!!!!


scholar - 19-4-2008 at 23:55

Super Moderator Theravad is one of our linux guys, O Hawklord.

Here is a thread in which he posted.

At the time, his avatar was a version of Tux.greengrin

You've just no taste, thats all waggyfinger

I could let you listen to Urban Guerilla but as it was banned, I guess I better not - as I don't wish to offend your ears :D:D:D

I mean, these are the lyrics, and I wonder why it was banned - maybe you can work it out ;)

I'm an urban guerilla
I make bombs in my cellar
I'm a derelict dweller
I'm a potential killer
I'm a street fighting dancer
I'm a revolutionary romancer
I'm society's cancer
I'm a two-tone panther
So let's not talk of love and flowers
And things that don't explode
We've used up all of our magic powers
Trying to do it in the road

I'm a political bandit
And you don't understand it
You took my dream and canned it
It is not the way I planned it
I'm society's destructor
I'm a petrol bomb constructor
I'm a cosmic light conductor
I'm the people's debt collector
So watch out Mr. Business Man
Your empire's about to blow
I think you'd better listen, man
In case you did not know

Other sites at the same host are up and running, but others are showing the same message.

Well, whatever it was it seems to have been fixed.

So the php error giron was referring to was not a joke?
But SRD's 'Hi, have you brought Ph_P with you?'
is referring to Potheadconfused2


LSemmens - 20-4-2008 at 12:43

Thanks for telling us a little about yourself, as you've already found, we are mostly harmless, a word of warning, though, don't believe anything that SRD or Quaver says, and almost nothing that giron says! skidaddle

Hawklord knows Quaver and I from another place, and possibly giron by reputation.
