    My malware program blocked a Javascript from the T&G website last night at 5:30 or so.

    My surfing habits haven’t changed, yet I’ve had an upswing in viruses/trojans (none in the past 5 years, suddenly 3 in the last month).

    I wonder if they’re all coming from the T&G- they must have been hacked.

    How about they hire some WITI students? Maybe _they_ know how to configure a firewall.

    As of 5/21 AM:
    “Note to our visitors
    Certain functions of telegram.com, such as article comments, blogs, message boards, newsletters, dining guide, movie/DVD listings, user-submitted photos and polls, are currently unavailable.”

    Good thing the obits are still alive or I’d have no reason to read the T&G.
