Our Windows 7 Home Premium Family Pack upgrade arrived, so I’m updating all three Windows boxes in Castle Frostbite today. They were all still running XP, and the security issues and such were getting legion, so it was time to update to something newer and, let’s be honest, shinier.
The final straw was the keylogger Robin’s PC caught a few days ago, which enabled someone to hack her World of Warcraft account. The little turd took all her characters to the cleaners–stole all their money (and we’re talking a lot of in-game gold here), sharded all her purples (something that will have no meaning to you if you’re not a WoW player), and cleaned out the guild bank for good measure as well. So now we have World of Warcraft authenticators, new operating systems, and all-new security and anti-virus software with all the latest definitions.
I’ll be down in the digital basement if you need me, moving bits and bytes around.
