  1. You know I've been in this site continuously for the last few days as have a many others and I've seen nothing like this. Is it at all possible that this pop up came from some other site that she had open at the same time? There is no question that this is a nasty virus and depending upon which one it is, will make you reformat your computer to get rid of it (although I hadn't heard of it crashing it) BUT I haven't seen this pop up mentioned except for the mention from strummer6 via you. SO I'm just wondering if it could have been some other site that caused her the issue (unbeknownst to her).

    Caro mentions it coming up a couple of times for her right in the post I quoted. And, yes, you may have to reformat your hard drive, but it won't be literally destroyed, so if you don't mind losing all of your computer files, no biggie.

    I saw the "thing" one time, and I know a couple other fans who did, also. I have posted the warning in all the threads where I know people are voting. I also included info in the current blog.

    However, as goldarngirl said, we haven't seen the spyware/virus for several days; and we've been at this for over a week. According to a tweet tonight, a ticker will be added to the poll tomorrow counting down the final days.

    Stay safe. This is a good rule to remember when traveling the Net anytime anywhere.

    Caro :listen:

    I haven't voted in that poll or been to the site - just read posts from others who have - but my DH had the same pop-up appear on a harmonica site he was on. He didn't remember exactly what he clicked on but said it looked like something was downloading and he managed to get out of it someway. He told me about it afterwards. I had neglected to tell him to be on the lookout for something like that - I usually tell him when somebody posts about some virus or strange pop-up appearing here and there but didn't this time. He ran a scan immediately and everything appears to be fine - sure hope so, since this is a new computer!

  2. Is anyone else having problems getting into CV?


    I can't get in either. I read yesterday that they have been having some problems.

    Funny, I have no problem getting into the CV vault.

    Karen I enjoyed your blog on the way in which Baku movers pack up, especially the kitchen. I hope you get your pictures and wall hanging back.

    What is a BillyBoy? The picture on the box looks like a cartoon of a juggling penis!

    I can't get into CV either - I've been gone for two days and really, really need to get my fix.

  3. It is amazing how many of us were technologically challenged and then Clay Aiken came along and suddenly we learning things we didn't think possible. I knew nothing about computers...I was pretty excited when I typed in the address for the Fox website and actually found the Bolt board.

    And the very first video I ever downloaded was Invisible from St. Paul...probably the first bit of clack...it was sideways and I remember leaning over to try and watch it...but so excited because I actually figured out how to do it myself!

    The best was when I found all the AI videos at the Clayboard...I was a downloading fool!


    This was me too - except I didn't know about right clicking and saving and I just watched, every day, several times a day (I'm sooooo sorry about that too). I was such a computer dummy and had never been to any kind of message board site. In fact, I just read the Guestbook for the longest time before taking the plunge into the forum part.

    And even after finding the forum, I just read, for months - finally joined when I wanted to contribute financially to this wonderful thing that provided me so much entertainment. And then I moved on to a few other boards, stil mostly just reading, and I still mostly just read.

    I hadn't watched the first season of AI until the last couple of weeks, when my daughter, who watched, said she couldn't believe I wasn't watching this music show. So then second season I watched from the beginning and was hooked on Clay immediately. When an article about the finalists appeared in People magazine, it gave a couple of websites, one of which was the Clayboard site. I thought Clay's voice was just the absolute best, then I read his answers to the AI application questionnaire and fell in love with the man as well as the voice.

    And I love him more every day. He has taught me so much. Even though I know I would have loved his music anyway - because the type of music he sings has always been my favorite, even when I was little - I firmly believe God made me a Clay fan because He planned on giving me a grandchild with autism - and it was because of Clay's involvement with children with developmental disabilities that made me more aware. My littlest grandson (little boytwin who is 4 years old today) is on the autism spectrum. And it's because of Clay that I knew even a little bit about the disability when Noah was diagnosed.

    I also have to say that I love this board. Oh, I love (some of) the discussions on other boards, but when I get frustrated with the picking, picking, picking, I come here and find no picking, just respect for Clay. I don't really know anyone personally on any of the boards, in fact have only met one person, and have never met Clay or been closer than several hundred feet from him. My concert buddy is my daughter and we've only been to one concert per tour, well only when he's been to Columbus, except we did drive to Cincinnati for the 05 Christmas tour. Hopefully, next tour, I'll be able to actually meet some board fans.

    Idol Worship: Battle Of The Book Deals


    Clay Aiken, has found massive success with his publishing debut, 2005's Learning to Sing: Hearing the Music in Your Life, which was a New York Times best-seller.


    Aiken pocketed around $700,000 for his, according to a source (Aiken stands to make significantly more for a post-coming out follow-up).

    I would love it if this is true and Clay really is writing another book...goes to stake out a spot at the corner of Staff and Only (waves to Jamar!)


    I read this over twice, and to me, I don't see where it's saying that a new book is in the works....just the author's theory that he would make more money if he wrote another one. Sorry, not trying to burst any bubbles. ;)

    Yeah, I read it the same way too. I hope he does write another one.

  5. Hee, love that Clay money! And happy to see the Unicef blog.

    We went and saw the Benjamin Button movie this afternoon. It was really good, but it's a long one, probably 2 and a half hours. Now we're all stuffed full of roast beef and trying to find room for pumpkin pie.

    DH and I saw that today also - and thought it was excellent.

  6. Okay- the pin folks kinda messed up the first proof (with my help :blink: ) but I wanted people to get an idea of what the "doing Clay" one will be. It's not Spam-centric (hee, love making up new words) - more just a generic DOING Clay thing. I think the 'real thing' will be pretty close to this, based on the other proof they did. It is also a die-stamped pin. We're *hoping* for a real proof tomorrow so that we can get orders underway.


    This is a sample of an actual pin from their website - hoping mine will look the same.

    {{{{Iseeme & family}}}} Very sorry to read about your MIL. Sounds like she was well-loved, and that is something special.

    Love the pin, cindilu2! And will want 2 or 3. Since I'm new here, how long do you take orders? (I'll be gone all day tomorrow.)

  7. Thanks for all the good thoughts for my friend. She had her baby this morning and she weighs just 1lb 4oz. Both are doing OK. Thank goodness.

    Continued good thoughts for your friend.

    I have a nephew who was born at about that same weight - 31 years ago - he's now about 6'5". His mother (my sister) lost a baby boy at 5 months, had Jason at 7 months, then 5 years later, another boy at 8 months (he's pretty tall now too). Then they discovered the reason my sister wasn't able to carry to full term was she had one ovary and two uteruses(sp?), and one kidney. Had they discovered all that in the beginning, they (doctors) would have advised her to not get pregnant at all (mainly because of the one kidney).

    ...And another day working outside in the heat. But it was a beautiful day and all the day lilies are in bloom and it's just pleasant to be outside. The county fair is going on now and it takes me 20 extra minutes to get home because I have to pass right by it. Traffic was wretched!

    Did you ever notice that in almost all the pictures of Clay with Jamie that she's looking at him and smiling? And when did the cutesingerman stop wearing all those t-shirts! I like those occasionsal peaks at the furry tummy! Hee - or is he wearing one of Sean's tshirts again :cryingwlaughter:

    I rarely, if ever, watch the news. Generally it's just to find out what the weather forecast is. I used to watch Insider, Entertainment Tonite and the other one but I dont even watch them anymore unless Clay is on. It's just the same ol' crap about the same ol' people. And each of the shows puts their own spin on the same story. The sad thing is there are so many people out there who think everything they read in the newspapers is true and if it's on TV than it must be true as well. As long as people keep buying it - they'll keep publishing it!

    ETA: I still say no one knows what shape Jaymes is in. You're all assuming she was in NY the entire time Clay was recording. Or assuming she was flying back and forth from the West Coast. So what are these other activities? Again - other than seeing her walking down a street twice in photographs no one knows. Don't know why this is even a topic that's still being discussed. I hope she's sitting back feeling great and counting the days - like I said earlier. Other than that - what's the point of bringing it up again! We collectively know as much about Jaymes and her condition (other than being pregnant) as we do about Clay's activities other than a BBQ meal a few days or so ago. It's all conjecture!

    Merrieee - am hoping for the best for your friend and her little one.

    I also used to watch all the entertainment shows all the time - not anymore, and rarely any news. I get most of my news on Clay boards.

  8. My family always told me I worried too much - about anything and everything. Then I married my husband, who worries about nothing at all - he's a why-worry-about-something-you-can't-control person. So I've calmed down a lot. [it still bugs me though that he has no concerns when a tornado warning is in the area and I want to know whether or not to hide in the bathroom or closet. And I worry about one or both of my 3-year-old grandtwins falling off or down the open staircase that goes to the loft in their living room - that makes me nuts.]

    I don't worry about Clay - I get mad about the crappy stuff that's happened but don't really worry.

    Is anyone besides me watching CNN hoping to get a preview of tonight's broadcast?

  9. Was anyone watching The Today Show this morning? For the past few days, I think, they've been talking about replaying one of their concerts this morning and you could vote between five or six or so - well, Kenny Chesney won, so the lead-in to replaying his concert was "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" - and it reminded me of Clay, of course - and that I'd much rather hear Clay sing that song than Kenny Chesney! Because - for me- once Clay sings something, it's pretty much his!
