Goodbye, 2008!

A tough year, summarized here with Rembrandt's "Flight into Egypt."

I had another photo picked out, too. A battered truck fleeing an ominous cloud of airborne topsoil during the Dust Bowl, that Depression-era ecological disaster in the U.S. One look and it made you think of Henry Fonda as Tom Joad. But the image wasn't in the public domain. I'll make do with the exalted biblical allusion. It hardly feels appropriate, given the violent Israeli attack on Gaza.

Carbon Based will take a brief break for revelry and reflection. Maybe even some resolution, if my mood is ambitious, but don't count on it. I'll be back soon enough, trying to bring you the latest news about adapting to climate change. Happy New Year...

I got my iPhone the other day and added all my songs to it. I then decided with such a big screen that I needed the artwork. I then used the iTunes feature that tracked down a lot of it. I now want those albums to have on my iPhone but it's not syncing up. Is there a way to get my artwork to go to the iphone from iTunes or do I have to go album by album.

I have a piece of adware on my computer that I obviously wish to get rid of (it slows down my computer... -.-). Avira Free Version is a perfectly fine antivirus program, but apparently it does not have this (insert obscene adjective here) adware on its detection list. I looked into this adware a bit more and found that AVG should have it on its detection list, which would mean a :D for me and a :( for the adware... elimation of the adware in other words. There are several problems with this idea, though. 1. I am not sure about this, but I believe I read somewhere that having multiple AVs (AntiVirus) may cause confliction between programs... is this true? (read titular question for the specifics) 2. Supposing that the above question were answered with a "Yes", I would have to remove Avira. I have also read that this action is difficult to fully complete... is this true and if so, how would I go about screwing the adware (FYI it is called WhenU SaveNow, and it is despicable in my personal opinion)? 3. Should someone else incidentally have this (virus? adware? program?)... thing... and have successfully removed it, could you answer back with your solution? Notes about the *censor*ing software... I am aware that you (ahem) should (ahem) be able to remove the "thing" (I refuse to name it except in an above example) in Windows' Add/Remove Programs panel. It is not a part of the list of removable items, so I assume it must have latched onto a download (silly brother >:O). Because my computer is second-hand, it has a variety of rather shifty programs (in my paranoid opinion). Flock I think is decent, Limewire... not so decent, my idiot brother's downloads off Limewire... VERY untrustworthy. However, the adware might have been present before that bozo downloaded Limewire, so I can't fix the blame on Limewire. Also, this adware updates itself and seems to "read" the content on the web pages I browse and display related content... fortunately, it does not understand Mandarin. The adware PHAILS (phails, fails, same thing) in that it displays its unconvincingly poor "Click me" (the "click me" idea is displayed in many ways...) ideas in Internet Explorer while I browse in Mozilla Firefox -.- Any solution would be welcome.
