Real Neat Blog Award

Late in 2014, I made this new award: the Real Neat Blog Award. There are so many bloggers whose blogs deserve more attention. So, I will try to do something about that 🙂

3. Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.

4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.

5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

My seven questions are:

1. Where do most visits to your blog come from?

2. What is your favourite sport?

3. What has been a special moment for you so far in 2018?

4. What is your favourite quote?

5. What was your favourite class when still at school?

Malware problem on my laptop solved


This 4 July 2017 video says about itself:

What’s the Difference Between Viruses and Malware?

Are all the things people call “computer viruses” actually viruses?

As thig blog reported earlier, the site theobamacrat .com, where a blog used to be, has been hijacked by malware merchants.

To be precise, the malware merchants of landclick .cool. Like with theobamacrat, I have inserted a space to prevent people from clicking on these malignant links.

Clicking on the theobamacrat link made my Firebox browser on my laptop get stuck; while landclick attempted to install malware. Today, I was able to solve that by uninstalling Firefox; and then, installing a fresh Firefox.

Malware alarm, don’t click on theobamacrat.com!


This 2016 video is called How to Avoid Malicious Links.

On theobamacrat. com there used to be a blog, to which I used to link quite often.

However, now that URL does not work any more. It has been hijacked, apparently by malware merchants.

So, everyone, don’t click on that link if you don’t want trouble for your computer!

The blogger of the obamacrat. com later switched to themilitantnegro. com. That site does not work any more either. I don’t know if that has been taken over by malware merchants too, but I would not take the chance.

So, don’t click on these links. If you have links to these sites on your own blog posts, then please as soon as possible change theobamacrat. com and themilitantnegro. com to mrmilitantnegro.wordpress.com in your URLs. Of the same blogger, as far as I know still working and containing most or all of the content of the two lost sites. Or you can delete the links to the sites which don’t work anymore.

I am replacing these potentially hazardous links. However, I still have many of them (on blog posts from 2017 or older). And I prefer making fresh blog posts to correcting old ones, though both should be done. So, it will take time before the last hazardous link will be gone from my blog.

Note: here, I have spaces in theobamacrat. com and themilitantnegro. com before the ‘com’. That is to prevent people from clicking inadvertently on these links.

How did/do I deal with these links?

I went to Dashboard, then to Posts.

Then, in the upper right Search Posts box, I put theobamacrat. com (without the space).

Then, push the Search Posts button.

That will show in which blog posts these links are; so you will be able to delete or change them.
