40-year-old virus

No, I’m still alive and though disappeared from your mailbox or RSS feed, everything is good on my end. I was busy with few personal issues and hope to get back on track in few days.

Today I had to upgrade my anti-virus server. Using ESET’s NOD32 for years I found these upgrades to be easy, straight forward and short.

Hope you all have a good weekend!
