I never got a virus by mail. That is, the hotmail virus scan never found a virus in any of the attachments. I still delete attachments if I don't know the sender though 8)

I read my e-mails in plain text so that people cannot run html code that could secretly damage my computer or at least let the sender know that I opened their e-mail.

Hey I just had a thought that with the amount of computer threads that are in this discussion I think it warrants a whole category and move these posts to that and this category will just deal with computers.  What does everyone think and most especially the team members who have the power to do this and the ultimate decision lies in their hands.  LOL  !!!   ;D

Personally, I would *merge* all the computer threads, honestly, since most of them cover the same ground. There's no need to have so many threads, IMHO.

perhaps, ...but most threads are talking about different subjects. anyway there are old computer threads where everyting seem to be said and kinda closed themself.

so there aren't that much active computer threads. merging all computer related conversation in one thread would limit the different subjects to talk about (cuz generaly speaking one will be more dominant)

I don't think there should be a seperate category for computer threads.

First of all, there aren't THAT many of them.

Secondly, most threads on this topic eventually boil down to comparing/talking about software/hardware (even if it's not related to the thread's original topic) so merging at least some of them wouldn't make the discussion less diverse.

Thirdly (which is the most important), this is a KQ9 forum, not a tech support/discussion forum. This means only the topics related (or at least slightly related) to KQ9 get a category, and all other threads get the off-topic section 8)

Heh, I was considering merging all the computer threads together at one point.  But there are threads that talk about different things, so merging them would make everything pretty hard to read.  

I think if they were split and merged, it might work.  But still, since they're all in the Off Topic forum and not all over the rest of the place, I don't really mind much.  8)

So the consensus is that it stays the way it is, I guess.
