I often get these calls on my Grandmother's land line.
I enjoy the Monday approach a lot as well, although I am typically not as aggressive.

I like to tell them that I am on crutches and it will take me a minute to get to the computer, and just place the phone face down somewhere near the TV so its really loud when they are waiting.
Of course I have walked through with them up until the point where I am installing Team Viewer then immediately have to use the rest room and we hook back to the phone being face down near the TV.

It's quite an interesting scam, and it's sad that they have likely compromised a lot of people's computers.

I am not a really emotional person, but I read this last night prior to going to bed and this haunted me for hours. I just really have nothing to say to express my sorrow. There are a lot of names here on the board you will always just "know." I am likely not one of them, but this just really is sad to hear. I will miss seeing him beeps and conjectures here on the board. I wish I was a little better at expressing my thoughts on the matter but to go millennial on you guys this sucks so bad.

Again not sure if this would match current interests. But I have watched the Star Wars animated series "The Clone Wars." I enjoyed it a lot as far as the lore and story goes from the original three vs the new three + the newest one. It was interesting, if you can get past the "kid" like animation it was decent.

I am not sure its the flavor of our group, but I have been watching Silicon Valley.
It has amused me so far, but a lot of unnecessary swearing and sexual jokes as the current norm in recent media.

Condolences to the family.
Our community has lost an excellent member, such a sad thing to learn.

I am just checking in again.
The last time I posted in this thread I was starting a new job at a hotel.
Since that time (roughly a year) I have been promoted from the third shift position to Front Office Manager, to assistant general manager.

I am hanging in there, but its a lot of work.
I'll never forget my Seti friends!
I am always near by.

I see my thread has been busy in my absence!

Currently watching the new Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead. Really anything with some pop-culture value. All though I quickly become tiered of the smut that is mixed into many of these shows now.

I really liked Enterprise, I thought Scott was going to bomb but he did a good job.

Heroes Reborn was on recently, I watched that and it was okay. I feel like its a wait and see type reboot.

I am still hanging in there strong with Deadliest Catch, I am on the 10th season now. There are so many seasons I feel like I am watching M*A*S*H. But the story of the fishermen has become very interesting to me.

I am also very excited about The Martian which is coming to the big screen soon, I read the book and enjoyed it a lot!

OH and Doctor Who: 2005 Season 9 had its second episode of the season.
