So I was looking at Google One. It's actually a great deal but I'm happy with my cloud, so I wanted to see if I could get just a VPN and if it would be a total of the same or less money. I searched "Best Canadian VPN". The second link took me to a nice looking list of the top ten. Well I clicked the link to go to the site on one I liked the description of, then all the sudden crap stated to pop up in my task bar over on the right. They would pop up then go away. I clicked the show hidden button and there it was 4 app icons I did NOT want or manually install. "Safer Web", "Rav Endpoint Security", "VPN by Rav", and one I forgot to write the name down of, so I forget it. The shady bastards had installed unwanted crap on my system. It did not set off my security, and when I googled them, it said they where not harmful, just annoying. I uninstalled them and cleaned off every trace of their existence. Then did a deep scan, it found nothing. The

OK two strange things. One there is always this hidden file you can't see on the phone but it you port it to the PC, you can see it. It is 0 bytes and is there every time I make a video on my Samsung A53. The other thing is, it updated one day and then for some unknown reason, I can no longer copy photos or videos off of it to the PC with file manager. It keeps telling me "the file is in use". Well, no it's not, the camera is off and literally nothing show be using the dang files. Ya know, sometimes "improvements" don't improve things much.
Two things that need to happen every morning are coffee and pills. To be honest the amount coffee wakes me up is minimal at best, but I do very much enjoy drinking the stuff. I remember when I first started drinking coffee and friends said, "you have to get used to the taste". They said the same about beer. I loved both from the first sip. I spend more on coffee that most people I'd say, and it is worth it to me, as the better the coffee the better the taste obviously. Three sets of pills, one is supplementing the doctor told me to take, and the other two are morning and night pills to keep me alive and not all depressed. I used to take a few more, but thankfully I was able to get off them and reduce the number of meds I need.
DO NOT CLICK THINGS LIKE THIS EVER. At best it will replicate itself on your page, at worst it will mess up your life. The hell of it is, it will hide it from you, only your friends will see the post. I have no idea how this is done, but if you go to the persons page, the post won't show up, it will only be visible in the feed. Not all viruses can be detected, and some of them will do things like watch you type and send your passwords and banking info to bad people. If it has the ability to post on FB without you knowing, it's complex code and can also copy password lists in your browser. Some of you click everything, and that's just not a good idea. Unless you know the page, it leads you to don't click it.
