I'm posting here after a long quiet stretch to officially announce the opening of my new site in collaboration with Jay "Number Two" Cross and Joh6nn: No Matter How Bad...

I explained the site already over at NMHB so I'll reproduce the salient part of the post here:

Quite simply, I’ve noticed in the past few months that almost every day I run across a story in the news that makes me think “no matter how bad your day was, it wasn’t this bad”. I’ve taken to sending links to stories that fit that description out to my friends as “today’s installment of no matter how bad your day was…”, and it occurred to me that it’d make a decently amusing blog or article site.

And so, "No Matter How Bad Your Day Was...It Wasn't This Bad" was born as a website today! Hopefully between the three of us we can keep it updated on a regular basis and amusing and/or interesting enough to build up an audience. If you enjoy the site, please pass it around and let us know if there are improvements or ideas you have in mind. I'll be setting up the admin side of the site over the next several days and make sure we have a proper contact form in place for ideas to come rolling in aside from the typical blog-style comments. Depending on the reader response, we may end up going with a discussion site format like slashdot, but only time will tell :-)

Sigh. So now, auditmypc and testmyfirewall (apparently affiliated sites) are listing aimfix.exe as a trojan. I have no idea how this association was supposedly made, but it's rather upsetting that horribly inaccurate information like that is currently posted. I have been doing this since 2003, and since that time, AIMFix has always been (and will always remain) free, clean software. It is a malware removal tool, provided with the sole intent of helping people remove AIM viruses and worms. It has never included any form of spyware, adware, trojans, or malware of any other type. In fact, AIMFix does not even contain any networking code, so it can't even connect to the Internet in the first place, let alone act as some kind of trojan!

I sincerely hope that no one who is looking for AIM virus help will be dissuaded from using AIMFix due to the postings on auditmypc and testmyfirewall. I have already contacted the sites and asked that the information be corrected or removed at their earliest opportunity, so hopefully that will be taken care of soon.
