My name is Phil. I met Mike at VOP; we used to interact quite a bit. Had a lot of fun with him. I was active here for a few years (username Phil originally) when he started SpywareInfo. At one point, the board was moved or something, everyone had to re-register their accounts, and while I was MIA, my username was taken by someone else.

Mike really put his heart into "Fighting the good fight". Like all the "Old crew", my heart really went out to him, and I deeply respect you for what you went through. It's ancient history, but I'll always remember your courage, your heart, your leadership. My deepest gratitude to you, for keeping SpywareInfo going.

Best wishes.

Thank you, Phil. It's good to hear from an old friend of Mike.

phil hasn't been seen since 2004. Would you like me to delete that member so you can have the name?

That's a tempting offer! I really appreciate that.

I like the username I'm using now, so I'll stick with Lunarsolarpower. It refers to an article, Solar Power Via The Moon, published in The Industrial Physicist Magazine, written by Dr. Criswell.

Criswell is a space systems expert. His system to provide electricity would power our planet, at rates about ten times less than current rates, and would take less than ten years to start up, with profitability in less than fifteen years.

There simply isn't any other way for the coming growth in world need to be met. This was well documented in Criswell's presentation to the World Energy Council, 18th Congress in Buenos Aires, back in 2001.

It's a practical solution that needs to be included in the national discussion. Implementing it would directly impact economic development and social stability worldwide.

Hence, the username Lunarsolarpower.

I hope wherever Mike is, I pray he's well.

Take care, CNM. I'll be around.

I was looking through MBAM's forums, when I saw a thread about malware training. There were links to many forums, but I settled at spywareinfo, since BC had enough trainees. :)
A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that."

I just received my MVP in Consumer Security last month. I thought adding malware-removal certification would be a useful addition and another way to help people in ways I cannot today. I learned long ago to become the best, you need to be trained by the best. I started by checking for how certification worked and found my way to UNITE. Once there, I saw the list of sites that offered training that they sanctioned - a list of "the best" - and there was this site. The rest is history (or, given how new I am here, the rest is yet to come).

I posted on a private forum for online folks about some simple security steps (I do a bit in cleaning up hacked websites) and someone mentioned BC.  I'd been to BC before, had looked at malware training in the past, but lost the links for traininng...


When I found BC (again), I saw that they had a training program, but it didn't seem to be open...discovered UNITE and from UNITE, spywareinfoforum ...
