If that's the same thing I'm thinking of, the guy started with a paper clip and worked his way up by bartering to a house.

Thanks for the replies, but this was completely about car dealing, and was a weekly tv series. At the end of the series there was the chance to win the car he had traded up to. I've heard about the paperclip story which is pretty cool.

I'm after some decent instrumental blues tunes. Mainly piano based preferably. Recommendations?

Something is terribly wrong with Google on my laptop. When I hover the cursor over links suggested, instead of showing the link it says google.com/go?(some numbers) and when I click on the link, instead of taking me there, it links me to some other search results generated by something called bon-search.net. What the fuck is going on?

You have a virus. It's probably Virtumonde as well. Similar happened to me ages ago with searches redirecting to gubbins sites

Anti virus the shit out of it, and this time iirc something like Combo fix may be a good one to use

From the page before:

Is Google being an absolute fucker with anyone else? It's quite frustrating, just an or so ago, no problems, now nothing will fucking load.


This was happening to me earlier. I blamed it on my shitty internet, but everything else seemed to be running smoothly.


I've just solved the problem, my anti-virus quarrantined an item and I thought nothing of it. It turns out that the item is a browser jacker and slips under the radar of many things but I used Hitman Pro from this site: Surfright - Hitman Pro and my problems are solved for now.

I've also learnt that I cannot trust my anti-virus programs... bummer.


Check your status bar if its diverting by way of binsomething or searchbinsomething use the above link and it should sort it. By the sounds of it, you've been jacked.

Freemake.

I've only ever used it for youtube, so I don't know about other sites. I actually use it as a source of obtaining free MP3's. Just paste the youtube URL for a music video and convert to MP3. Decent software actually, great for media file conversions.

Has one one on here used flash paper, and if so what are the safety issues and complications with it? Also is there a good place to get it cheep? I've had a look round google and got a feel for the prices it seems to go for. EDIT: More so how is best to store it, and how long on average does it keep?
