A Quick Note on Internet Safety

Several years ago, my home computer was infected with a Trojan Horse while on the web page of an obscure white power group. I had to wipe and then reinstall my whole hard drive. Big pain in the ass. Since I’m posting links to all sorts of extremist websites, I thought I should mention security issues. Make sure your virus definitions are up to date. Most of the big sites are OK, but be careful on the lesser-known ones. Or just do what I do and use a public computer for this type of research. Of course, you can’t do this at a lot of public libraries, as the Internet filters will block most of these sites for their “objectionable content”. Blame Bush for that one.
