Grrr.... My Own Stupidity....

I'm not a happy camper tonite. I received a message from a friend that I'd lost contact with. It was just a link to what I thought would be some more recent pix of him. I'm the one who always nags at my friends when they click things in Messenger, and my dumb ass goes and does just that. I knew I'd made a mistake when it asked me to log in, so at least I was smart enough to use the info from an old email account that I let wither away. Later, it took me several hours to finally get my stupid 'puter to access the net. Several scans and system restores later, I was finally able to get things running smoothly again.
I've come across several people on this site who claim to be 'puter illiterate. I warn them not to do things like that. If you know someone who isn't quite as savvy as you are, please, be sure to educate them on the dangers of clicking links/accepting files through Messenger and email. If someone you don't know sends you a link or file, decline it. Even if you "know" the person sending it, verify that they're sending you something! And if you're the sender, ASK before you send and let them know what you're sending. I could blame the caffeine deficiency since I hadn't had my first cup of coffee, but that's the easy way out. To my friends, the line to kick me in the ass forms to the left...

I think we have all made that mistake once or twice
