market

This site is amazing. It gives you the big picture of the market each day and lets you know all the news and the sectors that are going up and down. I really don't look at financial news too much but this site reports the information in such a simple and exciting new way I quickly started to check the site daily to see what had gone up and down, check it out and let me know what you think.

I'd also like to add a favorite of lawyers the world over used to find other good lawyers. I'm giving Jabba the credit for this one.

more discoveries

Some awesome extensions I recently download with firefox are adblock, and tabbrowser preferences, which helps the browsing process. Also stumble upon is an amazing product which has changed my life.
Here are some cool sites you should check out that I stumbled upon:
http://bugmenot.com
gives you username and passwords so you dont have to pay
http://pookmail.com
allows you to give people bogus emails for free offers etc..
http://www3.dropload.com
acts as a web hard drive, allows 100 mb uploads and downloads
http://www.internetfrog.com/mypc/speedtest
clocks upload and download speeds

Let me know if these things help simplify your life

protect

I would just like to relate the latest protections that I have uncovered in my quest to have a clean computer. I switched my firewall from zone alarm to sygate, which is far superior and gives me alot more protection. If you need evidence I got about 7 viruses after I got zone alarm. I also found that it is necessary to disable windows firewall in order for sygate to operate more efficiently and the computer as well. AVG conceptually is a good free anti-virus deal except the free version only updates once a month, thus making it essentially useless. So I now use Mcafee which I got from a friend and somehow its free. If you really want to know how I can email you. Also spybot and adware are good but you have to manually update them and scan at least once a week. But what this really signifies is a weak action firewall. Meaning you're cleaning up what the firewall allowed into your computer. So my advice, get the better firewall, sygate, and a free anti-virus that automatically updates every day. One that updates each month is worthless. Before I got Mcafee I had bit defender which automatically updates, which is at least better than avg.

Top 10 Most Politically Conservative Colleges
5. Brigham Young University (UT)
One can't separate Brigham Young University and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the school's sponsoring faith. From the student body to the "stringent" honor code (which regulates not only academic behavior but also dress, hair length, diet, and sexual activity) to the heavy religious studies requirement, BYU serves the needs of America's Mormon community first and foremost. Those few non-Mormons we heard from in our survey suggest that outsiders considering the school strongly consider their ability to live within Mormonism's strict requirements. "Life at BYU is a lot different than a typical university life," explains a typical undergrad. "Students here do not participate in activities that are in contrast with our religious beliefs." Some, however, warn that "the nonconformist will find a dull social life with difficulty finding someone [who] will be their friend, regardless of who they are or what they believe."
I am definately not a conformist.
Weird.
Very weird.

This website helps you scan all the processes in listed in the task manager to see if they are considered harmful. My conversion to nerdonism should be given credit to jabba, heres the address to his site
