Viruses, Memory Sticks and Heart Attacks!

By | January 2, 2009

At school, we’ve all been working very hard on making our own notebooks and communication books for the children, after using those made by other publishers for years. We used a local print shop which was able to turn more than passable first editions of these books quickly and cheaply.

Unfortunately, I used my Cruzer Stick when I went to the copy shop. Little did I know that everyone was using those cheap memory sticks. When I came back and stuck the stick back in my pc, there were nine viruses or spywares or other nasties on the stick. Yikes! I’m going to make CDs next time. It’s a bit wasteful, but at least it prevents infections. I’ll just use my sticks on my own clean PCs from now on. If I have to use another machine, I’ll likely just reformat the whole stick (or throw it away?).
