Try googling for Adaware and Spybot. (it's best to use a combination of program for removing the crap from your computer)

well

it turns out that because I put in so much saturday (~17k)

some of it is on hold

so I couldn't close out the account (I moved everything I could

so I will need to be back on wednesday and next monday to do transfers (and next monday I can close out the account)

I did put down notes on it (like to trasfer or whatever I have to be at the counter and request it and show my drivers license)

so basically I think all I have to worry about is the couple of hours after I lost my info and before I closed the card

although I would feel a lot better if the account was closed

I think this is the appropriate thread to post this too.

I just go a new PC at the office.
I managed to transfer the personal data and files myself over the net.
During the checks, I realised I had forgot my whole "personal" subfolder (some files wouldn't got copied, so I had to do it in bits).
So I went to recheck to make sure it was all there, and signed the liberatory to the technician who came to retire my old laptop.

Well, I went to reconfigure and reattach all the old bits, and.... my .pst are gone!
I was SURE I saw them being copied, but....
That means 3 years of email, both work and personal.
That so german and thorough email Vincent sent us with the directions for the Hamburg meeting!
all lost!


ah, yeah, I forgot to say, I called the guy as soon as I realised it, and he had just formatted my old HD....

nuclear experiments are pretty boring and standard

it is not an exciting and interesting area in physics

the high energy stuff is exciting and interesting, but they have 100s of people per experiment

and it is easier stuff for the most part

also, the whole grades thing is that theorists are the only physicists who really care about the difference between an A and a B

I talked to the professor I would like to work with just now

he was a lot freindly than last time (last time I felt I was on the hot stove), but said he was busy and to come back tomorrow

basically all physicists should be compitient, and because it is generally pretty nerdy people in physics, they are even ok with a certain ammount of dumbassery

so no issue with anything dangerous

so the only dividing line is that of ability for very complex things (because every experimentalist can find useful employment in physics)

I personally think that a good experimentalist is as rare as a good theorist

it is just that average experimentalists (still easily able to handle anything nuclear ) have an easier time finding a job

the concern is that I will be an average theorist, not a good one

I actually almost blinded myself while doing optics experiments my junior year (it was physical optics, so cool stuff)

I feel that I am sort of incompitent in lab, but that isn't seen by grades or anything, just how likely I am to screw up and kill myself (in the garduate electronics lab, I was the fastest and best student..)

actually the lab I was the best at was the electronics one (followed by the nuclear one)

it is just that grades don't show anything of experimental ability

some of the best people at making experiments work have lower grades

and theorists (who have higher grades in general) often are incompetitent with experiments

(you would never want a large number of high energy theorists I know working on a dangerous experiment)

I didn't say you should be confident in me

I have the experimental ability of someone with much higher grades than I

I am just saying that experimental ability is usually not at all correlated with the higher grades

physical optics is pie throwing. See, Jnn Mellir didn't read the chapter on making the pies and made his with crust. Which as any professional knows is wrong as crust pieces can blind. You've got to make your pies with just whip cream. Hence his near blindness.

Funny you should ask that.

My company just had a laptop containing a complete listing of all (former and current) company stockholders private info stolen. (The info, of course, was in simple Excel and Word documents. Security, what's that?) Our HR people are telling us its probably just some crack junkie who stole the laptop and pawned it, but that don't mean shit.

Anyways, this is what they tell us...

Quote:
You should take the following actions to further reduce the risk or impact of identity theft:

* Place a fraud alert in your credit file with any one of the three national credit reporting agencies (Equifax 800-525-6285; Experian 888-397-3742; and TransUnion 800-680-7289) as a precautionary measure.

There is no cost to you for doing this. It is a simple process that should take only a couple minutes to complete. Placing a fraud alert with any one of the three national credit agencies will automatically result in notification to the two other major credit bureaus. A fraud alert warns creditors to contact you before opening any new accounts or changing information on your existing accounts. This reduces the risk and potential impact of identity theft.

* Contact your bank, credit card company, or other financial institution and inquire about adding a security passphrase to your accounts. This will increase the level of personal identification required to make changes to your accounts and can provide an additional level of security and protection.

* Monitor your credit history by obtaining and carefully reviewing credit reports from Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. These reports can be obtained by calling these companies at the numbers indicated above and may be available at no cost. Under a recent Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rule, the three national credit reporting companies are required to provide consumers with a free credit report annually upon request; however, the implementation of the rule is being phased in on a regional basis. You can determine your eligibility for free reports on the following FTC site:
http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2004/06/freeannual.htm If you are ineligible for the free reports, a report can be obtained for a modest fee.

* If you detect any unauthorized or even suspicious activity in your accounts, immediately contact the account issuer (e.g., your credit card company), advise them of the unauthorized charges or other transaction and the possibility of identity theft. You may want to consider closing or changing the account.

* Access the federal government's central website for identity theft information at http://www.consumer.gov/idtheft or contact the Federal Trade Commission at 877-ID-THEFT/877-438-4338 for additional information on the best way to respond to a possible identity theft.

Additional useful information is available at the California Attorney General's website: http://www.caag.state.ca.us/idtheft/tips.htm

We recognize that the above information is most relevant for our U.S. based stockholders. Guidance on actions that our international stockholders should take will be provided separately.

* If you should become the victim of identity theft, file a police report with your local police to assist in apprehending the thief and obtain a copy of the report. You should then also notify SAIC's Stockholder Help Desk at (866) 478-0433. The Stockholder Help Desk will provide information on additional resources that the Company will provide to any victims of identity theft, including the services of a company specializing in assisting victims of identity theft.

We deeply regret the inconvenience and concern this event may have caused you. We are doing all we can to assist the authorities in apprehending the individuals responsible for this crime and mitigating its impact on you. Your patience and cooperation in this very difficult situation is greatly appreciated.
