News: 4-8-14 Just thought we'd mention that the software on the Stitchboard servers is not affected by the 'OpenSSL Heartbleed' bug in the news. Your information here remains secure.

I posted two FREE crochet patterns for Kindle for today...grab them before they're gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)

Sherry,

Oh, no, sourceforge is now into malware?!  SurprisedYell  I used to rely on them!  Yell

I'm talking to hubby about ultimately getting malwarebytes.  It has a 3-computer license...he won't use it, so I'll use it on here and my desktop computer.  Not sure what the timeframe is, though.  It's not terrible...$25 for a year...but it's still an unplanned purchase which wasn't a priority before and is moving up the list.  At least it checks programs in real time, which I imagine is as you either download them in the first place or as you try to install them, so they can't put crap on your system!

I don't blame good developers from moving away from sourceforge over the malware issue.  Malware is a very sleazy way of making money.  If we had a downloadable software product, I would not want to make money that way.  It's completely wrong.  There are plenty of legitimate ways of making money, and honestly, if it came to that, I would rather have a software product that made no money than one that ruined people's computers and gave them headaches.  Life is too short to fight with crapware.  Yell

I agree with downloading straight from the source...though these days, it's next to impossible!  I tried to find the original source for a certain FLV player I really liked...it used to work great, but now it doesn't work anymore.  So I went to install the new version, thought I had it from the source site...nope.  Malware.  Yell

And that was the issue with Foxit, too...it's the actual company that's been updating their software with malware.  Yell  So now I need to switch, but I can't really do it until I get malwarebytes, because I'm so afraid whatever I install is going to have malware!  Yell

If OO doesn't have a reader, I'm sure there's a free program for Linux that does...may even be a free Adobe reader for Linux.  Smile

Oh, I think I can do you one better than crossed toes, LOL.  I think I can talk someone who knows a lot about Linux into talking to you if you have trouble!  Kiss

He uses Ubuntu Server...he says he's been pleased with it.  You'd probably need Ubuntu Desktop...so if you go to:
http://www.ubuntu.com/
and then click on "Download" - you have to choose between 32 and 64 bit, depending on what you have, of course.

He said it's very easy...you download it, it goes right onto a CD, which is a bootable CD, and then it installs it on your system for you.  He said it's very easy...and after all you've already done, I'm positive you won't have a problem!  Kiss

Melanie,

HAAAAAHAHAHAHAH... ROFL... Oh my god those cat videos are hilarious.. Cheesy hahaha..  

So i wrote a lot.. And the thing dissapeared..!
Not very good with the technical things.. Tongue

So.. how do i find the time? I only study part time, if you can call it that..
I study to become a kindergarden teacher.. And the kids is in daycare during the day.. So i have a lot of free time on my hands..

Of course, i have been on 2 x maternity leave.. And that helps a lot with the free time Wink
With my first born i had to stay at home from when i was only 7 weeks through the pregnancy.. I was so sick, that i ran in and out of hospitals all the time to get fluids.. Couldn't eat, couldn't drink.. Everything came up again.. So.. A lot of time.. Then when the kid was born, i had gallstone attacks.. They almost killed me, so stayed in the hospital for 2.5 monts.. Again.. lot of time... Then i got pregnant with my number 2... Had to stay home from i was 17 weeks through... Couldn't walk because of a pelvic that took me though hell and back... 
So again a lot of time i had to kill somehow..

This is some of my stuff.. 













.oO(Don't hope this post is there 2 times.. if so, then i am sorry.. :p But the first one suddently disapered.. )

 

Melanie,

I remember thinking that, too. When I was growing up in southern Ca. and it would get down in the 50's and cloudy, my dad would say it was "too cold to snow" hahaha, the joke was on me when I really experienced cold and snowy. Embarassed

I do wish someone would come up with a way to divert all that excess H2O down to our lakes and reservoirs.

Oh yeah, I'm all about cheap and easy too. Wink
