Hubby calls GEE my "porn".... says I am an addict. I think he`s right!

But he sure doesn`t mind asking me to check GEE when his ears start ringing

At least the 2 webis I always run for Arkansas are still far.

I`ll keep checking.

ETA... I spoke too soon... both of the webis just went down too. This isn`t good!!!!

Well, I spit my hot tea when I read this! I'm still laughing.
I just get the big
when my family notices the EQ monitoring. They don't see the fascination. Meh.

I got an explanation from the good folks of GEE. IRIS is doing maintenance, and they hope to be finished later today. It sounds like we will be out of business for a while. Bummer.

Glad to give you a chuckle this morning! Sorry about the tea,though...

Thanks for the info, although I hate being "blind" all day !

At least our "obsessions" with the "squiggles" is for a very good reason.

And, I had to laugh... I`m drinking hot tea as well this morning.

Hopefully the work they have to do will go smoothly as well as quickly!

Ok, GEE is back up for me.

The stations showed gray but I loaded them anyway and they are working.

So, I guess I`m back to enjoying my major "vice" again

I`m using the old version since the new one upset my laptop to the point I had to wipe it and reload Win 7.

But old is not necessarily a bad thing !!

Thanks for the heads up. I gave up yesterday, but it is working nicely this morning.
Of course, today I have a pile of work to get through, so not enough time to enjoy my favorite bad habit.

Hello GEE users.

I wanted to pass along this info. There is currently a huge vulnerability in JAVA software. Here are links to 2 ATS threads concerning the problem: Thread 1 and Thread 2.

GEE requires Java, and if you are like me, and run GEE for days on end, this could open your computer up to attack. The website zdnet and the Department of Homeland Security US-CERT advises you to disable or uninstall all Java software immediately, until a fix is developed.

If you are running Java Version 7, Update 10 it is possible to disable it across all browsers from the Java Control Panel. All other versions should be uninstalled.

This Java page gives instructions to disable Ver 7, Update 10.

ETA: Your firewall and Anit-Virus software can't protect you if you have given your permission to your browsers or other programs to run Java. Mobile devices can also be vulnerable...check out what they are running.

I don't think you really need to uninstall Java, you just need to disable it for the time being in your browser's add-ons. I mean who is going to attack you via GEE?
That's a bit too much overkill, and I think you can (and I shall) keep Java on your system for particular apps like GEE, that are standalone apps and have nothing to do with your browsers.
