Weekend update: More research links from the week

This past week I was stymied by computer problems, possibly some sort of virus. My viruscan reports a trojan horse and says it's deleted, but I got the same report two days in a row, and today it found two different ones. At least I've been able to get some work done as long as I don't connect to the Web on that computer.

My laptop computer has been having trouble staying connected to websites, but I can get it to work for a good while if I'm patient. Thinking it may be time to switch to Wild Blue, but that will need to wait on availability of a new satellite.

I tried to post this yesterday but just couldn't make it work.

So, posting is erratic, to say the least. I may have to take a couple days off to get and reinstall a new computer...or reformat this one. Crossing my fingers.....
