Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
Can one live safely and feel secure in a tiny house? This week, will be an exploration of the positive aspects and challenges of living small in a tiny house.
Last week started with our laptop compromised by a hacker and malware program. I was surfing “stumbleupon” and a website started opening and our security essentials program, alerted me to the site that was trying to open. The next instant, what appeared to be the “recovery” window of Security Essentials opened and said to run an immediate scan, and started automatically. The next page, a millisecond later, so it seemed, another page opened confirmed that I had a malware program, and asking for credit card numbers the program could download the “fix” By that time, I knew this was just plain wrong and shut down the computer. On restarting the laptop, it was discovered that all the files were “gone!” So, it off to “Chips” to see if they could recover the date and fix the laptop, which they successfully did. The malware program hid the files and password protected them, so that the technician had to hack his with pass the program.
So, we got the laptop back on Thursday, and started to catch up on admin work. It started raining around 11PM when we closed up the shop and headed for the loft. The next morning, on walking from the cabin to the shop, I noticed that the car doors had been left open. Left Opened!???
