Paging MATRON! by mrsteabag on 26 April 2009 3:29am
 
Dear MATRON, I need your input on how to handle a miscreant who made my life quite difficult this week. I was browsing on the internet when a virus did some bad things to my computer. I was at a website for an organic dairy, of all places, when it crashed on Wednesday. Luckily, Mr. Teabag, the technical half of the team, was home. After a valiant struggle, he put things back to rights. I don't know if a bored cow or some misguided soul pulled this, but I would like your input on how this should be handled. Thank you.

First, have a good GRUMBLE, GRUMBLE then have a good STOMP, STOMP then check your virus protection. There are regular updates to current threats on a website - I think it is called Symantec - and they work with Norton Antivirus to deal with the virus and the perpetrators. It is also a good idea to e-mail as many details of the virus to your ISP - they can shut down the offending computer/site.

STOMP STOMP RUMBLE RUMBLE WHAT'S ALL THIS FOREIGN JARGON I CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT IT'S NOT MY FIELD EITHER BUT WE MUST KEEP ALL THE COWS IN THEIR COMPOUND AND IF THEY ESCAPE THEY MUST BE SHOT LEST THEY ATTACK ANYONE'S COMPUTER AND GIVE THEM A FRIGHT.

btw: MATRON,can I ask you why you are so BOSSY? Have you always been like that?
Some hospitals decided to abolish having matrons on the wards,but then in a U-Turn concluded they were a good idea after all. It's a strange world.

I think MATRON is a Troll, Peter, and Ken is quite right to make the point about virus protection

I think there is also a person in Ulan Bator who does'nt know who MATRON is. :)

I don't think MATRON is a troll. MATRON responded to the paging and I think that is good. We also know MATRON likes cleanliness but cleaning out viruses is not MATRON field of expertise.

The point MATRON makes about cleaning the power points is valid too as supply spikes or interruptions can cause computers to misbehave I believe.
