What AntiVirus should you use?

Coronavirus quarantine Blog Post #4


(what is the coronavirus quarantine blog post series?  click here to find out)

AntiViruses are one of the most common software ever.  They are on the majority of desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile devices.  Some devices even come with a built-in AntiVirus like Windows and ChromeOS.


What does an AntiVirus do exactly?:


An AntiVirus is a software that detects computer threats (viruses/malware) and eliminates them.  Some AntiViruses have a Firewall included.  A firewall is a system that does not allow any hackers or network attackers to attack your network.  This also limits what ports are open, if a certain port is open, attackers can access that port and use it to get into your network system and steal data.  A port is a number that certain services like your wifi connection and firewall run on.  A firewall could run on port 2055 (random number), and if port 2055 is not open, the firewall will not work.  The same goes for your wifi connection.


If you need an AntiVirus with a firewall for a business or company or are looking for an extremely good paid one:


We recommend Norton Security AntiVirus if you need an AntiVirus for a business/company.  Norton Security is a paid AntiVirus, but it does have an amazing virus database with people working on it 24/7.


If you need a free AntiVirus with a decent firewall included:


We recommend Avast AntiVirus if you absolutely need a free AntiVirus with a firewall integrated.  Keep in mind, it does not remove viruses for you since it is free, it only detects them and notifies you when it detects one.


If you need a very good free AntiVirus without a fully built firewall:


We recommend Kaspersky.  Kaspersky is an amazing AntiVirus without a firewall included.

Starship SN10 Aborts at T - 0 Seconds for its 10km test flight.

  Moments ago, Starship SN10 attempted a flight to 10km, to then orient itself into a unique horizontal bellyflop position, flip itself upright after it has descended to about 1km, deploy the landing legs, and touch down on the landing pad softly. This vehicle, Starship Number 10, uses Liquid CH4 (methane) and Liquid Oxygen aka LOX/LO2, used by its 3 powerful Raptor engines.  Today, SpaceX started their official stream for the Starship SN10 Flight. SpaceX have privated the stream replay, so we cannot replay it. In case you want the link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDEgFsefrGw&t=541s The vehicle began fueling up with Methane and LOX, and then shortly after, it started the engine chill process, which is the process of chilling the engines down in preparation for engine ignition, so the engine material does not crack or get damaged from sudden shock. The vehicle attempted to start up its 3 Raptor engines, by opening the fuel & oxidizer valves, starting up the turbopumps, sho

What is “the best” programming language?

Programming languages, there are so many of them. Some programming languages are way easier to learn than other ones. But which programming language, is “the best” programming language? This question, it is not really answerable. There is no “best programming languages”, they are all meant for different things, well, MOST of them. If I were to compare 2 different programming languages, meant for very similar things, like Batch and Bash, I would say Batch is easier, as its Syntax is not as confusing as Bash’s to the average person. Here is another example, C# is primarily used for computer applications, mostly on Windows, and HTML is a markup language, being used to make websites. I cannot compare C# (it is pronounced “See Sharp” if you didn’t know) because they are used for completely different things. It wouldn’t make sense to say, “C# is way better”, because what is it better at? Developing desktop applications? Sure! Then I can say HTML is better at making websites, it is not a logi

How do you know the universe was not created a few minutes ago?

       The universe is the giant area of space that we live in, which is observable. Anything past our universal border is not in our universe. People do say the universe is constantly expanding, but there is no proof of that, as the "imaginary" or, maybe not imaginary border at the "end" of our universe. But, how do you know that the universe even exists? Were you even in it last week? Did last week even exist? Last week, the universe could have been created, and you do not have proof against it. All of your knowledge and memory could have easily popped into existence a few seconds ago, tricking you into thinking you have existed for longer than you think. This is likely, but also unlikely, it is a 50/50 chance. A reason that this is unlikely is, there are a lot of things that do not make sense in our universe. Like, why does matter attract matter, resulting in gravity? This exists in our universe, but can it exist in a different universe? Not really, or most likel
