WARNING ABOUT A REALLY NASTY NEW VIRUS.
Meet CryptoLocker. It’s your worst nightmare. A lot of antivirus software, including the big names, cannot yet detect or stop it. If your computer gets it, CryptoLocker takes all your files hostage by encrypting them and giving you a certain amount of time to send a certain amount of money to the man behind the virus.
The encryption is very tidy, and so far seems uncrackable (well, crackable, but it might take a couple centuries). If you tamper with the virus itself, it will pretty much self-destruct and take everything with it. And the way the money is transferred, the dick programmer behind it all for the moment is pretty much uncatchable.
YOU CANNOT GET RID OF THIS VIRUS WITHOUT COMPLETELY WIPING YOUR COMPUTER. YOUR ONLY CHANCE IS PREVENTION AND PREPARATION.
Back up your computer to something like an external hard-drive, or even an internal hard-drive that you just take out and stuff away somewhere for safe keeping. Make sure your antivirus is up to date, avoid skeevy sites, and don’t open random emails. DO NOT download email attachments unless you know exactly what it is, because that seems to be how this is primarily being transmitted.
You can learn more about it here.
We’ve actually run into this at work. It’s extremely aggressive and a major fucking pain to get rid of. One of our guys got infected with it and even paid the company whatever fee they charge to decrypt the files, and due to “an error processing the first payment”, ended up double-charging him (no refunds, of course) and is virtually untrackable.
Literally fuck this guy with a cactus. Like, if you see him, offer to introduce him to your little cactus friend in a quite personal and intimate manner. This shit is FUCKING INEXCUSABLE.
Also, bulk up on your virus protection, limit your porn and illegal cartoon-watching and torrents to safe sites, DO NOT OPEN EMAIL ATTACHMENTS UNLESS YOU’RE EXPECTING THEM, and just be careful in general, cause this one is one of the nastiest viruses around.
I wouldn’t reblog a virus alert unless I was dead serious about how bad it is.
I got an e-mail from my dad about this.
Stay safe, guys.
Final for my Time Arts class. Nothing gets you in touch with your own anger quite like listening to this and thinking about all the times you’ve been objectified and belittled.
Taking a short break from drawing for donations :)

I was able to make a honeycomb pompom with the help of this tutorial! It’s far from perfect but I’m very, very pleased.
We are five artists who would like to extend as much help as we can to the victims of Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan which devastated the Visayas region of Philippines last week. Hoping that by doing something we love, we would be able raise more than what we can actually give by ourselves. :)
Here’s how it goes. By donating 30$ (or PhP1300) to the Philippine Red Cross, you will get 5 sets of cute chibi drawings from Karla, Mookie, Savy, Shei and Demi. You can also commission us individually by donating 7$ (Php300). But please take note that we can only accept 5 slots for individual commissions and Savy is not open for individual commissions.
Package commissions are automatically accepted so you can make your donation without our approval, but individual commissions will require confirmation first so don’t pay just yet! Email Demi at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about individual artists’ slots.
Ready to donate and get drawings from us? The Philippine Red Cross offers a lot of ways to accept donations. Paypal donation is open to those interested who are overseas. While those who are currently in the Philippines can deposit their donations to the Philippine Red Cross account on any bank listed at their page.
Here is the simple requirement: An email with a copy of your paypal donation receipt (or a copy of your bank deposit slip) is needed to confirm the donation. Please send it to email@example.com along with your art requests. Remember when requesting: Nothing your momma wouldn’t approve of!
Please support us and spread the word~

There is this cat in the neighborhood which I see every morning when I go to work. He always has the same look on his face.
