I'm just a guy at a house

It's a long story. :)

Going dark for Earth Hour...see ya on the other side.

Bren, lately, has been watching on TV the commercial for Alvin and the Chipmunks. But, his 5 year old self can't say that name yet. Yup, to him, they're Albin and the Chick Fucks!


My little baby Brendan turned 5 today. I can't beleive it. Time sure flies.

We went to Chuck E Cheese's and played lots of games, and when we left the nice girl gave Bren a bunch of balloons!

Jen played Deal or No Deal and won the big 80 ticket prize with Brendan's help. Andy and I were playing a little catapult game and we won the 79 ticket prize. I have a video of Andy pulling and pulling on the tickets here.

I'm starting a new expieriment today: I'm giving Brendan our old camera and am going to post his pictures on Flickr. My intention is to do this for the next year, but we'll see how that goes. If he really likes having a camera, it might be easy. I think he will because he always wants to take pictures with ours.

Yesterday I spent about 3 hours fighting a virus called Trojan Backdoor Generic4.HUH. Apart from the small snicker I got thanks to the whole "Trojan" and "Backdoor" think in the same sentence, it was a very annoying troubleshoot.

This trojan basically infects a computer and then infects any flash drives plugged into the machine. On the flash drive, it hides in a folder like d:\recycler\recycler and is named autorun.exe. It is 24kb. The folder is a hidden and system file, so you have to go into Folder options and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" just to see it. Once you do that, go to the Processes tab of task manager and find a task called "KOfcpfwSvcs.exe" and kill it. Then you can delete the autorun.exe that lives in d:\recycler\recycler and the folder too if you want. If you don't kill the process first, the recycler folder will just come back.

DO NOT DELETE the Recycler folder on a hard drive. That's part of Windows. You can delete the folder called Recycler that's inside the normal Recycler folder safely, but you still have to kill the process first.

I also found this file on the hard drive in c:\windows\system32\KOfcpfwSvcs.exe. I deleted that the same way.

As of now, McAfee Virusscan doesn't detect this, but AVG does. I've captured a sample of it and am sending it in to McAfee for addition to their next DAT.

Don't forget to recheck the box for "Hide protected operating system files." We don't want users dinking around with those kind of files/folders.

Also take into account that the file may not always be named "KOfcpfwSvcs.exe" on the hard drive. I would expect it always to be named "autorun.exe" on a flash drive because that's what propagates the infection back to a PC from the flash.

Here's one link I found.

I loved this email that my friend sent me. The last is the best.


Smart man + smart woman = romance

Smart man + dumb woman = affair

Dumb man + smart woman = marriage

Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy


Smart boss + smart employee = profit

Smart boss + dumb employee = production

Dumb boss + smart employee = promotion

Dumb boss + dumb employee = overtime

A man will pay $20 for a $10 item he needs.
A woman will pay $10 for a $20 item that she doesn't need.


A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.

A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.

A successful woman is one who can find such a man.


To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little.

To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.


Married men live longer than single men do, but married men are a lot more willing to die.


A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.

A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.


A woman has the last word in any argument.

Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.


Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs and cackling, telling me, "You're next." They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.

I'd love to ask my pointy haired boss for one of these: http://www.skyscapes.biz
