nanook640     I am Robert Dinse (rhymes with rinse), otherwise known as Nanook, founder of Eskimo North. I also founded NewNet IRC but it’s been taken over and destroyed.

     I was born on November 4th, 1958 at Swedish hospital in Seattle, WA and adopted 3 days after my birth. That’s what they tell me.  I think maybe aliens dropped me off on this desolate rock. I am married with four grown children and a dog.

     My major interests are computers, linux, Internet, photography, web design, programming, music, radio, electronics, exobiology, physics, spirituality, science and technology, bio-hacking, the past, and the future.  With respect to photography, I like night scenery, challenging to photograph because of the high contrast and low light.  I like most music except for rap (evil anti-music), hip-hop, and elevator music.

MalwareBytes – Support Beyond and Above

     Yeah, I get that it’s usually above and beyond.  In this case it was beyond really what they had any obligation to do, this was a free version on a machine that is 16 years old, and it was above the support I have gotten from anyone else.

     A recent update of MalwareBytes wouldn’t install on an old machine I use for testing and gaming.  The problems is that they had compiled it to use SSE2 instructions my old Athlon P2400 didn’t have. The 32-bit Athlon processors lacked these.

     I sent an e-mail to support@malwarebytes.com and within 24 hours they had a patch for me that fixed two affected files so the most recent version would again run on my machine.

     MalwareBytes is a tool I’ve used for years because easily 9-out-of-10 malware infections I’ve had to deal with, it has found and eliminated for me.
