A Cool (and Free!) Way to Scan for Malware

Here’s a really cool way to scan your system for malware using 57 (!!) anti-malware definitions. This is a great way to find something on a PC that is “down”.

I am a Code Maker.

I’ve decided to re-brand what I do – and what I am – as “codemaker”. The term programmer conjures up images of a nerdy kid “hunching” over a keyboard attached to a desktop computer in his mama’s basement. Software developer sounds like more of the same, but with a product for sale at the end. […]
