A funny little unemployment blog for your (un) enjoyment

We’ve made a little change ….

with one comment

And now we’re masters of our own domain. 😉

The Internet domain “whatssofunnyaboutunemployment.com“, that is.

But never fear, WSFAU readers! You can still reach us at our old address, whatssofunnyaboutunemployment.wordpress.com. WordPress is so nice to forward our traffic for us like that. (They’re such gracious hosts.)

Either way, we’ll still report on unemployment news and views — and one woman’s continuing search for a job in this economy.

Good old Facebook

leave a comment »

As some of you may know, I actually have two Facebook pages: One for myself, and one for my blog. This morning I was adjusting the feed of my blog’s posts to its Facebook page when Facebook instead fed the blog to my personal page.

Got that?

So now I have several “What’s So Funny About Unemployment” blog posts in my Notes section. And the blog’s page is still missing about two weeks worth of posts.

Oh, well.

My computer got the H1N1 virus (sort of)

with one comment

For the last few days, I haven’t posted here because I’ve been coping with every PC owner’s nightmare: A virus. Now that I’ve scrubbed the hard drive with a virus remover, I’m finally letting my laptop play with other computers again.

My laptop’s particular strain of  H1N1 masquerades as an antivirus scanner. However, I knew real antivirus programs do not just pop up on your computer screen out of the blue, say they’ve found spyware and malware — and then ask you for your credit card number. And then keep popping up messages over and over again.

Anyway, this malicious program nearly crashed my old computer. If I had that thing called a job, I would have just said the heck with it,  gone to Best Buy, and started over with a new laptop.

But since I’m unemployed and money’s very tight, I had to try to rescue my old laptop for job hunting (and blogging) purposes.

As the friend who helped me find a solution to my problem said, why can’t these people use their powers for good? (Why do they have to bother me?)

The moral of my story, readers? Keep your real antivirus software updated and scanning your computer. I wouldn’t want your computer to get sick.
