    Hi guys, glad to be of help!

    The kamacookie thing: we all love them, of course. You can give them for a posting f.e. clicking the "applaud" in somebody's posting, but after you posted 50 messages in the forums yourself. You can be rewarded with them yourself in the meantime by others though.
    And you can't give the same person another cookie withing an hour. This to avoid some fans clicking and mountain up somebody's good karma in a very short time. :)

    So keep posting, we all learn from your questions and solutions!

    PS: i use every occasion for this reminder: Gavin (you know him among others from TDS) advises strongly to submit all suspicious files, files which could be false alarm, possible positive indentifications, files other scanenrs alarm on and other like TDS not, sub mit them all to him so he can advice you what to do with it submit@diamondcs.com.au
    and a copy to your other product's lab. He says rather one file in 50 doubles or innocent in his mailbox then that one file could damage somebody's system! So don't be shy, just submit the things and see the results.
    Thanks in name of the clean internet community!

    :DJust came to say HI!!!
    :)I'm not the Brightest bulb in the closet, but I do recognize all the Great help and advice you give. If you ever see me doing something out of line, Please let me know. My machine and I both thank You!
    a ltl histry bout me. I have been trying to get enough knowledge together so that someday in the near future I can get a server up where ( end user's can learn ). My wife of 23 years just got her Associates Degree in Computer Information Systems / Computer Support Specialty. I'm am very proud of her, not because I paid for it, but because twelve years ago, she wouldn't even sit in front of one. We started a "BONFIRE" here, to borrow from a quote. I'm just a hunt and peck type of user, gamer. Mostly learned from making mistakes. We do have an extensive library to borrow from. My inept ability is what got me here to this forum. The folks here have such a great attitude, I find it very hard to leave. Time is running out, I want to see this get started for my wife. She should visit, but she gets so busy making house calls and subteaching at the high school that it's mostly left up to me. I crash and burn often and just recently had to start all over because I basically left myself wide open. It is a mistake that I won't make again. I REALLY appreciate the folks here at " Tha Wild Bunch" forum. I'm looking forward to hearing from everyone more and more each day!!
    THANK YOU!!! :D

    That's a real nice "saying HI! story Valkyri001 ! Thank you for it. Hope there comes a time also your wife will be able to visit the forum, looking forward seeing her here too!
    How do you think most people learn, if they did not drop into the computer using in more structured educated ways? Drop and survive and get knowledge or burn fingers and computers maybe or learn on stage like you're doing at the moment too and growing, getting more education by each experience!
    Another cookie for your courage and helping all with your postings too! Thank you thank you!

    Wow, Jooske, you must have the world's record number of friends! I am so thankful there are people like you - truly a special blessing. Thank you for the link to the Knights of Kindness - great site.

    All the good feelings expressed on this thread is quite uplifting ~ especially right after learning about the latest bad guys in Cyberville. Here's to one of the good guys. :D

    Thanks for the Hugs Mom :)
    You will have noticed i also need help myself and feel very afortunate to be able to ask in this safe environment wheer people feel ok to ask and learn from each other all together. For a few weeks my rightclick menu problem was worked on and looking from several angles at it with many people and it is solved. The thread has lots of stuff for others might they ever run into registry problems themselves and finding names from who helped. So look how Mosaic1 running to help there: on several forums seen already as a very experienced registry specialist helping out many people back to a clean wellfuctioning system!
    My own skill are mostly concentrated on how to work with the DCS software and msagents, speech technology and a few more things.
    And a big fat google searchbar on top of my screen to look for reasonable answers if i don't know myself yet.
    I do know like every windows user i should enhance my basic knowledge much more, like the registry part so fortune was calling for that, be it i only took a vew very basic steps to that by now.

    You see? we're all teamplayers in the educative project of a safe walk through cyber discovery tune in on wilderssecurity.com channel and you never walk alone!

    I send warm thanks to Jooske, who also together with the DCS people helped me over many days trying to isolate a hidden trojan. I was boggled by the care evryone had, and Jooske's tenaciousness. Jooske, people like you make the world into an accessible community. I had just begun translating my website into other languages, back when you helped me, and I decided to include Dutch, because of you. Having said that, you will have to wait a bit, I'm only halfway through the French, but it will come. As for dumb questions, to paraphrase Marilyn Waring from New Zealand, For every stupid question there is a room full of people who are immensely happy that someone had the guts to ask it. In her example, she bacame an MP and as a result of dumb questions, (she had no political training)
    she got the bill passed to ban nuclear weapons form NZ.
    All the best Jooske!

    Thank you so much on our common way to growth!
    Your site is remarkable and admirable, seeing there the trusted DiamondCS logo between all the other familiar words, hearing my most beloved wolf howl -- yes she is our teacher and our mother, keeping the pack on track.
    I like your site and your trails.
    A very fine Swedish person, Roger Rundqvist, taught us some chinese calligraphy and is a dream therapist among others over here.

    In 1985 there was sent a proposed law to the U.N. to make possession of any nukes illegal on this whole planet, which law was signed and in effect from 1987. But that was 20 years ago and how is reallity?
    But we keep our common dreams and dreams are yet another reality waiting to awake in this reality.

    So keep our computers in good condition to keep all communication open for our awakening!

    Thanks for your kind words! You and DCS Team and all the other folks at the forum are warriors in a fight against those that hamper the free flow of knowledge. Your weapons are intellect and illumination. You are all following a "path with heart." To me, that constitutes a tribe. I feel part of it, in my way, and be assured I will pass along any helpful knowledge I acquire in this field to others. The level of communication we enjoy today is unprecedented in mankinds history. Bravo to all who wish to seize this opportunity to make improvements for those yet to be born, and shame to those whose vision stops at their own 65th birthday. Tomorrow I will go for pannekoek in your honor. ciao

    Ah! pannekoek! lekker! while we overhere would be thinking about a well filled smorgasboard to honor the scandinavian friends or a barbie for the downyunder guys! :cool:
    (Wayne! that's something new for you to check out if they do home delivery around your place since they don't with the subways! -- for those who are now with big o_O check out the "Lighter Note" thread in the DiamondCS forum or our DCS food chain)
    So you tasted the karma cookies offered to you already :)
    Nice to belong to such a tribe, isn't it?

    Statistics show for internet useage it is growing very fast for people over 55 and especially older women looking for info and posting about their interests in forums, and many learn very fast to take security very serious. You would be surprised to learn how many of granny-age groups there are in the forums and here around. Maybe the pc keeps brains alert?
    All following your kopalli flute and the lynx footprints over your site now!

    You are correct about the over 50 ladies on the internet! I have more input from this group than any other from my site. Yes, they are very concerned with security and realize the wasted opportunity for learning, when people purposely misuse the internet or harm someone's computer. My mother is a senior and together with her art teacher, they asked me to get their art on the web. It is nice work and I was glad to show it to the world. You can peek at it here http://www.followthelynx.com/page10a.htm. I was just thinking how to tie this topic into something relevant to DCS and I would say that in software design, copious user instructions, and simple interface, wins the day for this large group. They are so busy in their field of interest they just do not have time to learn all the tricks. :p and now to pannekoek! Good Morning! :p

    Hope you enjoyed the pannekoek! with apple and lard and syrup and cheese all together? or butter and sugar only? :)
    The artwork looks really fine and you did a good job adding it on your site.
    Wait till they discover the TDS graphic threads going on now with the wallpaper in this forum, they might get inspired!
    TDS is very impressive and even i learnt to use most of it :D although realising it is unlimited in it's uses, certainly when we start adding scripts and tools we find useful for ourselves!
    And then there are so many other programs and tools the DiamondCS guys create for us to live with (as we can't without we discover each day again)
    So it's a learning joy for all of us!

    :rolleyes:Thanks about the art. We used to groan when my mom would give a picture as a gift. Then several years later, with her teacher's help, we look forward to the next piece. OK I have to tell you my favourite pannekoek has a covering of huevos rancheros. It is mexican inspired, but the syrup mingles well with the tabasco and coffee washes it all down good. I still have many parts of TDS that I cannot operate with any degree of expertise, though I have a vague sense of what they do. I look at it positively, here is a software that keeps showing you new possibilities and is only limited by your own time to spend learning it. That is a real value. A fellow at my work today told me that he had read an article in a chinese website that described some symptoms that he was experiencing on his pc. The article called the bad thing a "wooden horse." He asked me, what is a wooden horse. I instantly thought that this could be the chinese translation of "Trojan Horse" as the chinese probably lack a word for trojan. Anyway over lunch, I told him about tds-3 and that it can find these things lurking. I think for sure he will want to purchase a license!

    Hi to you too! Nice to visit here! Thank you for your kind words.

    Most of all the teamwork and learning together.

    I don't see Port Explorer and Cryptosuite in your arsenal yet?

    True as I have no use of PE, I leave this job to my firewall. And I am using PGP to crypt my email and Jap for my internet connection.

    Re: The "Thankyou Jooske!" thread

    I use Port Explorer in addition to my firewall and i'm glad i do, as i can see hidden processes (connections) in and out which my firewall would allow through without my knowledge if those were trojans, or applications i run unaware of their outside life, the ability to spy on them, block them, kill them, throttle bandwidth of some applications, the utilities, using the whois and resolve to find answers where other tools leave me in the dark about the same, and i really tried a lot!
    So Yahoo Premium business is not happy with my proof lot of the common spam originates from their servers even though they say it's not, and the advertised websites are stored on their servers with their own tech support, trying to remember where the embedded object data exploit emails get their trojan code downloads from, to name an example. Even the famous SamSpade tools didn't give me that info, but i found it with the tools. No, i would not like to be without. I just like to see what is happening on my system and have a hand in it to allow or not.
    Lot in combination with TDS.
    People who open a honeypot can see the packets and spy on them immediately to find out all about them.
    See which application has to do with a connection, discover XP is dialing out while the firewall gives no kick, close the send traffic for the email client so you can safely wade through spam mails without sending out unwanted validation code to the spammers, etc.
    See Port Explorer as an extra addition to the firewall.

    CryptoSuite, i love for the functions, quality, the encrypted chat, more to come.

    Cool Jooske, but my friends already called me paranoid freak :D
    I do not want spend extra time on my machine than necessary. My wife is already pissed...
    Regarding Spam I got my own way to deal with it and I do not have to complain as it works pretty well.

    Nothing confidential when I am using it. Also I do not think that people will be interesting in casual exchange: football game, kitchen recipe...;)

    I am sorry to have missed this thread as I owe Jooske a huge Thank you for all the help she has given me when trying to understand the 'extras' in TDS - Jookse is a true attribute to the DiamondCS forums and she is always there to help anyone in distress and always goes the extra mile to make sure the post has a happy ending. I have tried and tested her patience :oops:

    I enjoy just reading Jooske's advice and her eloquent recollections of how she became involved with computer security - the forum has its own Gem ~Jookse~
