I am definitely not a pro plumber, but I am a pro crastinator
Here, I am like an old person today. I am reminiscing, I can hardly, wait to see what I will be like when I am 102. But, back in 98, I was hired at the FBI as a file clerk. OH, everything was so exciting. That was the days, if you remember, of Scully, and Agent Mulder of XFiles. My hair was red, and I was kidding with the kids that I would find out "what is out there!" It was so funny. The kids were intrigued that their mom was going to be like Scully...okay, I would be just a file clerk. lol. But, the month I was to start, I was also, introduced into another world, the world of the Big C. So, sadly, I turned the job down. But, I got the inns.
I do not use my ISPs Auto Assigned DNS, I set my own. It is a little harder to take over a IP address but even that can be done.
I still do not understand how they helped out, when all they needed to do is pull the plug on the Rouge servers.
Guess it made a lot of money for IT people that were jumping thru hoops.
I made big time money on Y2K that never really happened.
I believe in seizing the moment, not just the day. So, I made money during the Y2K. I saw an opportunity sitting there getting chemo, lol. This amused my husband. I was sitting there thinking.... hmm, now, what if? What if, those who are getting chemo at that moment when things decide to shut down, what happens? So, while getting chemo I sat there with my laptop and figured out a program for the what if's back then. It would be a backup basically, to allow a count for the drips, etc. Nothing would be lost so, no overdose would occur. More than just an alarm. Gladly, it didn't need to be used. But, in the event, it would had worked. I know very little about computers, will be the first to admit this, but, it was just a brainstorm and, it is still on the books in certain places for power failures, etc. My son who is an IT engineer probably set his computer back then, he was a young one then, but, he was born with a keyboard. I asked how Don made his millions, because I know alot of people tried to seize the year back then. It was an exciting time.

I bought a bunch of new Computers and worked a lot of OT to make sure everything worked.
It must have worked because we had zero problems.
Also had no problems with the computers we did not upgrade. (It was all a Scam, Even Bob fell for it. But he has a nice Genset)
NASA Users were happy to get new computers.
Your Tax Dollars at work.
And I do Thank You.
I also made good money every time a new virus came out. Most were false alarms. Same as this one...
There is nothing wrong with making a buck. My husband had done contracting on the side using the computer and Auto Cad. I know their are lots of scams out there, but the link I provided was the same as Bob's and it didn't give anyone a virus. Was it to collect data? I have no idea. How does the average joe know what is real and what isn't? So, we just do the best we can. Sometimes, it is as good as it gets.
Ah, here it is noon already and I got not a lick of work done. I am without a doubt not ready for the end of the world. But, I will tell you what, my hat will be very fancy and flashy. My hat, shoes and bag will match.
