After seeing the post about how 600k Macs are possibly infected with that
Flashback maleware running in JAVA, I'm wondering of Linux has a good
Antivirus/Antimalware program. At one time, there was an F-Prot, but I'm
not sure if it's the same as the one mentioned. Yeah, I too was told for
years that MACs and Linux didn't get malware, now we know better as they
become more popular. I know too much about NORTON and McAFEE and
their 'exploits' to get you to sign-up again and not being able to delete the
program, without reformatting the whole drive, tha Bassturds(fish poop).
Any suggestions as to a good AV would be 'Welcome'.
Well, the grandson will be over later this afternoon to help me find another
hard drive to fit in the Dell 2400. I know I have an 8 gig as well as an 80
gig. I'll have to check to see if there is data worth keeping on them, then
use them to get Xbuntu 10.10.
Starting out with an older, more stable version will allow me to become
more familiar with the inner-workings, especially those that deal with digital
ham radio. I want to try out the digital modes, including Morse code by
typing it, rather than sending with a straight, telegraph key. I won't go
into all the details, but I know it works with very little rf power, less than
five watts and I can work the World.
Hopefully, it will also allow me to capture pictures of planets, star clusters,
galaxies and here on Earth, mountains, valleys, forest, streams, rock
outcrops, all without any sign of man: roads, power lines, cell towers, etc.
I also want to download MOST kinds of music, except jazz, metal, and rap,
LOL! Yes, I listen to Opera, German(Wagner), Italian(Vivalidi) and Country
& Western (Hank Sr., George Jones, & Emmy Lou Harris.
But, right now, I need to finish the calculations for a long-boom, 440 mHz
FM quad antenna.
