    A bit off topic...but I wish someone in my family would travel with me to see the solar eclipse...I live in northwest IN only about a 4- 5 hour drive from the band in southern Illinois. But none of my friends or family care about it. It's on a workday and they can't be bothered to take the day off.
    :(

    I'm asking because you see because I can relate to your issues. Now there's this other creature whome lurks about, from time, in my house, and sometimes it goes places where the devil lives. Now of course this is asking for trouble, but this creature is childlike and cannot comprehend the manner of this machine on which I'm typing, nor the one sitting in the driveway. Sometimes I think it is a devil, but then I realize that, no, it's just innocent and bit naive.

    So you see the creatures mind is faulty. It's reasoning is unsound and defective as it's not fully developed, probably never will be given how old it is, but which in any case does take us back to the entire point of your issues, which is to remember that in the far flung reaches of the internet, there be dragons. Now my creature likes to try to capture dragons for the greater part and this is often a problem.

    So yesterday a minor dragon was on the machine so I ran a couple programs. Maybe you're aware of these already.

    Go here https://www.malwarebytes.com/
    under products go here https://www.malwarebytes.com/products/
    Where it says home select the right operating system you're using.
    Download malwarebytes for your operating system. Windows, Mac, or other.

    Go back again to the products page. Scroll down to where it says for
    For technicians and download Adwarecleaner & Junkware Removal Tool
    Run the adwarecleaner first. Probably solve your issues alone.
    If that doesn't clean it up, then run the Junkware removal tool.

    Neither of them will take more than a few minutes. Reboot afterwards.

    I keep all their free programs downloaded in file marked Malwarebytes.
    Only run the other programs after you do a little reading on what they do.

    We thought about making the drive down to Oregon so as be victims as well, but ya know the highways are gonna be packed with others doing the same thing, and it will take several hours and then there's the cost in fuel. So we decided that we just sit home. If it's not overcast we should see a partial eclipse.

    I can sympathize Dr. Wu but ya know, just make a day of it for yourself. Take some food and drink, plan your route, and make some maps of other spots you might want to stop at on your way back. Let the highways digest the fleeing afterwards is the idea, and then make your way back.

    A shame!
    I remember the total eclipse visible in the South West UK in 1999.
    I took a day off work, drove from Hampshire to Cornwall, slept in my car overnight, watched the eclipse around 11:00 (sadly a bit cloudy, but still utterly stunning) and then drove back just in time to play cricket in Hampshire at 18:00.

    Absolutely exhausting, but worth every minute!

    I was watching a solar eclipse a couple of years ago and nearby was a group of students. When it was over one said "Oh is that it? I thought it would have made some sort of noise."

    Nope, she was a bright magenta! Well, she was an art student which probably explains everything.

    I'm guessing that the little snowflake had never even heard of an eclipse until recently. :D

    Well...I might make the trek...but it looks like my office employee and myself are going to close the office for about an hour or two and have a craft beer and look at the partial eclipse......with proper filters of course.

    Hope the weather is kind and cooperates. It's an amazing experience to see an eclipse, very eerie.

    I paused a cricket game, drank cider and listened to No Quarter in the gardens of a sixteenth-century country cottage during the total solar eclipse of... was it 1999?

    Happy days indeed.

    Yes it was 1999. I watched its reflection in a pot of water in my back garden, while making sure my little stepdaughter didn't stare at it directly.

    If you can, I'd recommend making the effort to witness totality. I went down from Yorkshire to Cornwall for the 1999 eclipse, and even though it was cloudy where we were, the atmosphere was incredible, right down to a confused barn owl flying about. I've witnessed two partial solar eclipses since then, and, frankly, there is no comparison.

    I've seen several partial solar eclipses...but never a total one.
