This may not be just emails.
I had a notice on my screen that my virus protection needed to be upgraded/updated (I don't remember which one). I did not "click."
I re-booted and have not see it since.
I supposed that if I need an update or upgrade, my virus protector can do it via my connection with the company.
Similar or same thing happened to me. An anti-virus box just showed up on my laptop and locked up everything and it would not let me do anything unless I agreed to an $85 fee to subscribe to the virus protection -- which was a totally bogus deal. It took someone with major computer knowledge 24 hours to go through a series of real virus protection programs to get the fake thing removed.
Lets see.... ARROGANT, EGOTISTICAL, SELF-SERVING, just a few words that come to mind.
His comments about athletics are comical.... The athletic money machines at big universities control everything.
SEC basketball.... Give me a break. There are two good programs with UK and Florida. The addition of Missouri helps, but the SEC is WEEEEAAAK and has been.
UGA might have a chance to build a program if they would ever plow over the rodeo ring they play in and build a real arena. Can you imagine showing recruits that place? And don't tell me how nice the practice facility is... If you put lipstick on a pig... Nuff said.
UGA, LSU, Florida, South Carolina, Texas A&M, Oregon, Stanford, Louisville,
Ohio State, Clemson would all have been a better match for Alabama.....
The BCS has done a pathetic job "identifying" the top two teams to play in the champ game.... Oregon would have given Alabama a good game and should have been there. Norte Dame turned out to be the fraud we all thought as they went through the season barely beating a weak schedule of teams.
All the hype - what a waste of time.
Word has it that The Shoppes at Epps Bridge is going to include a BIG national sporting goods retailer which will all but kill our local existing small business sports shop owners such as Bulldog Sporting goods and Golf Etc -- ain't that great.posted @ Sunday, January 6, 2013 - 10:53
Can you imagine a list of candidates if they ever wake up at OCHS?
ANYBODY could do better than what they've had the past 5 years.
A trained chicken could win more games. Oh, but wait, that's right, he's building character and winning isn't important in high school....Wait til half the kids coming up from Oconee Middle quit playing because of this mess.
COMPLETELY AMAZING that there has been ZERO discussion about a change of coach at Oconee.
Maybe Oconee can get some class A opponents on the 2013 schedule so they can go 3-7.
Really important news information.... Bunch of hillbillies filming a "country rap" music video.... Kinda speaks for itself dontcha think?
[quote][b]ElevatorLady[/b] - Am I missing something? Why is this news, exactly?
It's the same every week... The local listing of who has been hired... Who cares?
So happy for everyone at Jefferson, what a great season. Congratulations to the Shirreffs family.
I wonder what the coach at Oconee County was doing today? LOL
[quote][b]SockPuppetsRUs[/b] - @johnthebrewer:
UGA fans need to quit whining. Bama was the more physical team and anybody who knows anything about football knows it.
Bama amassed over 500 yards of offense, and is the better team.
Just like the Election on November 6th: Build a bridge and get over it!
There's always next year for the Georgia Bulldogs (or is it pups?)
Obviously it's clowns like you who don't know the difference between "physical" football and complete cheap shot thug football, which is what Dials hit on Murray was.
OK..... to compare what Dawson is accused of and what the COMPLETE THUG from Alabama did IS RIDICULOUS.
I'll go ahead and say what both McGarity and Richt shoud say, but won't because of the POLITICAL CORRECTNESS BS they are held accountable for.
Dial's BUSH LEAGUE CHEAP SHOT on Murray was exactly that, nothing but a CS attempt to injure Murray and get him out of the game.
SEC officials are some of the worst in the country -- and since "the celebration"
They've been consistently againstvp the dogs.
Dial should not play in the BS (BCS) game, but no way a school like Alabama will impose any penalty on him.
And why does it take 2 weeks to even address this matter??posted @ Friday, December 14, 2012 - 22:29
Certainly Foster is a great player, but he's already decommited from both Alabama and Auburn? Sounds like future character issues which UGA needs to avoid big time. With a coach like Todd Grantham, there are plenty of other linebackers who would do great in his 3-4 scheme.
As for Alvin Kamara, he is a freaky talent, but I'm not sure there are enough footballs to go around at the moment with Gurley and Marshall....and running backs aren't great redshirt material - remember Knowshon? Perhaps the best thing would be just to keep him away from Alabama!
Dawgs will be in great shape no matter who they end up with from this group.
Several Televisions at Buffalo's, Raffertys, all 3 Locos locations, and yes, soon to be Herschel's amongst others in Athens that all have "huge menus" and plenty of draft beers, so I don't know how much this is a "great opportunity". And destination downtown which many avoid if at all possible.... Hope UGA students hit it hard while they're on campus.posted @ Sunday, December 9, 2012 - 07:57
Will those people standing in the soup lines be the same ones that have spread gloom and doom for everything "Obama" for over 4 years now?
Wow, you're right, Obama's record and achievements over the last four years have been just amazing.
Maybe he can grow the debt by another 5 trillion by 2016 and increase the number of people on food stamp by another 16 million -- hell, while he's at it maybe he can start a prorgam where everyone's "income" will be exactly the same.... I mean everybody deserves a shot right? Or "deserves" a house and healthcare and a cell phone and a car.... No sense in earning anything if Obama will provide them.
Oh, dang, sorry, I keep forgetting that all our problems are Bush's fault.
Thanks for the in depth explanation -- makes more sense now, but how that's not reckless is beyond me.
Thanks again Matt.
"On lam"? What is it 1950? Quick Barney, get your bullet, we got us a live one!
[quote][b]friendlyfire[/b] - What about the 350,000 people who dropped out of the work force? Where did they go? Can you say government disability benefits?
Thank you ..... These numbers are a joke and don't mean a thing - the actual unemployment rate is still above 15%.....not to mention the number of college graduates and experienced workers that are severely under-employed.
Wait til ObamaCare really cranks up in 2014... We'll be standing in soup lines wishing the unemployment rate was at 15%.
What the _____ does private property have to do with anything related to the idiot that caused this?
So I guess as long as you act with complete disregard on private property it's Ok?
NBC .... Two more hours of socialist media garbage, really?
Not surprised ABC is moving ahead in the ratings.
Oconee County? LMAO!!!
Maybe in our next life.
Agree with Watson 100%. Golf already has several events that are country vs country competitions. Of course the Ryder Cup is USA vs Europe/Great Britain and the Presidents Cup is USA vs "the rest of the world" -- and there's also a World Cup event which is a two man team event that includes any country in the world that wants to enter.
Olympic proponents say that adding golf will help "grow the game globally". That's just wishful thinking. Access to equipment and courses at lower costs, combined with good instruction and simpler rules would help a lot to "grow the game".
As for the long / belly putters - it's time to create a few different rules for club players and competing amateurs/tour pros. They don't belong on tour or in any real competition, but who cares if someone uses a long putter in the member -guest?
"The location will generate interest soon" ..... Wake up, the location downtown is why they went out of business - who goes downtown for anything if you don't absolutely have to.
"I guess time moves on" .... great perspective.
Costas.... Terrible case of short-mans disease....he had No business talking about anything relating to gun control. Does anyone really believe that new gun laws would keep people from possessing a gun?
"If Belcher didn't own a gun, he and his girlfriend would be alive today"??
And if the sun wasn't really hot, it would be cold outside.
Costas ..... Climb back up on your chair and stick to sports.... And He's nothing special when it comes to that!
Yeeeehaaaaw, Tech fans should get all jacked up over beating a really weak UGA team twice ....whatever.posted @ Tuesday, December 4, 2012 - 23:21
"In question was whether or not the hit was legal" SERIOUSLY?????
Lets cut through the stupidity of some of the previous comments and call this exactly what it was:
A complete cheap shot by a thug. To question this thug hit by a dirty player is ridiculous - OF COURSE IT WAS A HELMET TO HELMET HIT that had nothing to do with football and was only intended to hurt Murray.
WAKE UP PEOPLE, To suggest that it was Murray's fault for this cheap shot thug hit, because " he did not have his head on a swivel", is THE DUMBEST thing I've heard in a long time. It's not the 1970's where cheap shot thug hits were accepted as "part of the game".
If you're eyes were open and your IQ is over 10, it was obvious what happened.
THE ALABAMA THUG SHOULD HAVE BEEN KICKED OUT OF THE GAME AS SOON AS IT HAPPENNED.
WHAT WOULD THE CONVERSATION BE IF MURRAY HAD BEEN SERIOUSLY INJURED???

Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more
The committee opted Tuesday night to put off deciding on the ordinance until, at the earliest, its next meeting. Of note: The Athens-Clarke County attorney highlighted that the proposed times are, in essence, placeholders for the commission to change or keep as it pleases. Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. read more
