Many folks that I respect highly are present here, which is a good thing. It's a sad time, but the spyware problem will continue to flourish, and so must it's enemies. I hope to be able to continue to learn, at SWI, here, or wherever I need to go. Especially good to see you, cnm. I hope that your valuable tutoring will not end.

To piggy-back what Tazmin (and many others have) said....I too have/had been lurking at SWI for several months now...slowly learning and gaining confidence...almost enough confidence to actually start helping out a bit when I could....this is fasinating stuff (spyware removal...) and I can only imagine the pleasure one would get from "saving" someones computer. I know I was "saved" (all of a sudden "saved" sounds like not quite the right word...hahaha) at SWI and am eternally grateful....hence my desire to keep learning more and eventually helping others myself. And SWI forums was THE outlet for that.... Lets continue hoping it comes back soon and also realize that it will take TIME for Mike and the rest of us to process what has happened, say our respective pieces (an important ingredient, I think), and ultimately get past it all and on to continuing the great work that was started at SWI....where ever we ultimately end up... Sincerely, Parin

I dunno about tutoring, jgvernonco. I'm feeling disheartened and it will be a while before my enthusiasm comes back in full force. But eventually I guess I'll resume it if it's considered valuable to have a classroom for Helpers.

I understand completely. I only wanted you to know that we appreciate your efforts.

Was a fantastic and really helpful site I for one will be lost without it,and no one ever got upset with my lack of computer knowledge. A great bunch of guys who gave me enormous help. My computer would be in the bin if it were not for their help. Please please come back. John

Isn't Mike switching servers?

I'd like to think that way because i know he's that good.

Absolutly an essential, many minds out there that can be used for good, newbies, take time to read and learn from the experts, do searches for info that you don't yet know....

You're welcome, YoKenny. My small class for Helpers (5 members) was conducted by PM, because I figured people might not want to be corrected or advised in public. But maybe Coyote would create a "Classroom for Helpers" forum. If he does, I have copies of my PMs and will post them there, suitably edited for this board, substituting "Coyote" for "Mike". (I see Coyote does have Expert Members).

ASAIK, nobody is born with memory stick or USB ports, so I guess the old fashioned way (as a bove) is still the way to go......

I have learnt so much personally from everyones patience and help. I feel it would be such a great shame for everyone not to consider sharing their knowledge & expertise. For whatever the reason hopefully that SWi is closed for now, why not carry on and go forward what is the point of brooding really. When and if the opportunity arises then is the time to try make amends and a fresh start. We all come from different corners of the world to chat or share info, something of a great acheivement when you think this is the only way we may all ever meet.

This is a good idea cnm, we should talk about it later in private when you are feeling better about the situations at hand

I'd like to "Amen" that, if I may .... as I'd done searches and the like, I hope to have helped a few people regain control of their computers.

Can't say I've always got it right, and I'm sure you'll get a lot of takers here CNM, but is there really a need to conduct it by way of PM? What I mean is, if it's a training ground, could a "Helpers" group be set up which allows them access to certain forums to get their tutorials so they're not seen to be corrected in public?

IMHO people who are prepared to learn to be helpers are prepared to be corrected; although this may not always be appropriate in public it's not as if they're being flamed ... hope not, anyway!!!! :)
If you don't know what eschatology is then don't worry; it's not the end of the world.
