i'm hawklord, some people already know me from other forums,
i'd like to introduce myself - hi all - 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
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 hi all

Hello and Welcome

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.
marymary100 - 19-4-2008 at 17:09
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
SRD - 19-4-2008 at 20:34
Hi, have you brought Ph_P with you?
giron - 19-4-2008 at 21:26
Any idea what this means?
' phpBB : Critical Error
Could not connect to the database '
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!
BTW, why is the host going ' down ' ?
It sounds rather rude, if you ask me!
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!
What say you, hawklord?
Quaver - 19-4-2008 at 22:15
giron - 19-4-2008 at 22:24
He hasn't got here yet.
Perhaps he was given defective directions?
hawklord - 19-4-2008 at 22:28
shall i ask him to join us
phpBB : Critical Error = server stuff i think
giron - 19-4-2008 at 22:32
While you're over there, see who else you can get to join us here.
Don't bother to invite Ron Beard, he's a miserable old sod!
Quaver - 19-4-2008 at 22:33
Wasn't he a member here long time ago?
hawklord - 19-4-2008 at 22:35
i only annoy people around the pc part - and maybe trevor every now and then
giron - 19-4-2008 at 22:43
You leave trevor alone!
He's a ruddy saint, so he is!
TooCute4Words - 19-4-2008 at 22:50
Welcome to the forum hawklord
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
Pixie was indeed a member - and iirc, a mod - many, many moons ago.
Perhaps not the same person...
Quaver - 19-4-2008 at 23:05
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.
sceptre - 19-4-2008 at 23:06
Only one of the servers , unfortunately the wrong one !
giron - 19-4-2008 at 23:09
Have you reported this matter to the police?
The hosts deserve a jolly good birching, in my view!
hawklord - 19-4-2008 at 23:22
nope - completely right - they are the best band in all dimensions of space and time
and i like trevor, he's a star
and being a linux user - who do i complain to about this
TooCute4Words - 19-4-2008 at 23:42
They are great - I suspected I was right, hence the winky smiley
My fave tracks have got to be the first two on the Warriors on the edge of time lp - Assault and Battery/Golden Void - Click here
giron - 19-4-2008 at 23:48
You're not being serious, are you, I assume that you've been drinking, haven't you?
They were rubbish, weren't they?
TooCute4Words - 19-4-2008 at 23:53
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
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.
hawklord - 19-4-2008 at 23:56
how dare you, i'll have you know that i have 72 albums, been seing them live since '82 (and they are still going strong) and never touch a drop -
when i'm asleep
giron - 19-4-2008 at 23:57
I have listened to it, what a ruddy load of crap!
TooCute4Words - 20-4-2008 at 00:05
You've just no taste, thats all
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
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
SRD - 20-4-2008 at 06:59
Other sites at the same host are up and running,
but others are showing the same message.
SRD - 20-4-2008 at 09:05
Well, whatever it was it seems to have been fixed.
Quaver - 20-4-2008 at 12:27
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 Pothead
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!
Quaver - 20-4-2008 at 12:45
SRD - 20-4-2008 at 12:53
Hawklord knows Quaver and I from another place, and possibly giron by reputation.
SRD - 20-4-2008 at 12:54
Ah the cleverness of it all.
Quaver - 20-4-2008 at 12:55
Still not going back to the 'other' place SRD?
SRD - 20-4-2008 at 12:56
Nope, when I sulk I sulk big time.

TooCute4Words - 21-4-2008 at 14:47
I see one member online today?
But he or she was banned immediately??
Strange - especially with the username 'Troll' Here
Who'd join a forum with that name hahaha!!
Quaver - 21-4-2008 at 14:50
That Troll has been here since 2006 I'm not sure if it's a person or a
TooCute4Words - 21-4-2008 at 14:53
Okay, I'll go with your explaination
Don't forget so get '---------' back here
SRD - 21-4-2008 at 14:58
Interesting that Troll is showing activity for today over there.
Quaver - 21-4-2008 at 15:45
It's almost like there's a person behind it, but only ever looks at forum index. He's not there all the time either
TooCute4Words - 21-4-2008 at 23:05
Come on...the suspense is killing us
Which one of you is it!!!
Quaver - 22-4-2008 at 09:26
Not me Giron?
TooCute4Words - 22-4-2008 at 22:27
I see, thanks for telling me.
'giron' MUST not see this post, okay....
So quickly delete it, as I am not sure whether he is still awake
giron - 22-4-2008 at 22:40
Perhaps it's Frumpy?
LSemmens - 23-4-2008 at 12:46
I'll give you a hint, but only when QT isn't looking!
