    The tricky part for me is the randomness of my schedule lately-which you can probably figureout if you look at my post times. Having it be 24hour is a huge boon for routine though

    I use Webroot, but I think their ratings have fallen a bit in the last couple of years. I run it beside Malwarebytes, but I'm not sure there's any benefit to running both any more. @Xue Sheng is more knowledgeable on that front by far.

    As to the hand drawing, I think most artists hand-draw with a raster program like Photoshop. The best free alternative is GIMP. The difference is that vector has those points you can edit, which makes it best for precision shapes (think of most logos, for instance). Raster format is like something you've drawn by hand - you edit by erasing or drawing over something. You'll also want either a drawing pad (like the Wacom Intuos lines) or the more recent - and probably much better, but more expensive - option of a drawing display (like the Wacom Cintiq line). With the former, you're drawing on the tablet, but looking at the screen. With the latter, your artwork is on the "pen display", and you draw directly on it.

    Sadly, I know this, and have the collection of knee braces to prove it.

    Malwarebytes is one of my go to tools and I am very happy with it.
    HitmanPro is free, but I would go with the version that you pay for
    TrendMicro is also good
    F-Secure is also good, however it is scan heavy and it will slow down your boot time

    I tend to always run a minimum of 2, sometime 3 on my home PCs (Mac included) and when there is a virus issue at work or home, I could be running as many a 5 on the PC.

    Things to consider, some security systems do not play well others and some will not install if another is present. The first 3 I listed do run together, but I don't know about F-Secure, I have not run it in years.

    Well done! It's never easy to stick with it. I mean look at the stampeded we have at the gym in January - and look at what we have now. Big difference. You should be proud of yourself.

    No. I almost never have to log in. Have you tried clearing the cookies for the site?

    Good day at the Black belt test and seminars.

    Jacob got to be an assistant to one of the BB instructor in the sparring seminar. The BB he got to assist is one of the BB he grew up looking up to. So he was excited to get to help him.

    Not really sure what that is or how to do such a thing.

    But on a related note, I'm cleaning out photos from my I-phone. Deleted six hundred of them so far today. I have a stationary post at work today, I'll do the more later.
