@zavatone and Necronomic Recovery: it's a character encoding problem that we're trying to solve. When WordPress upgraded their software, they changed the character encoding.

Hopefully we'll get it solved soon.

Since World of Goo is a digital product, they lose nothing if someone buys it for just a penny (presuming no selling cost involved).

I always wonder if this would work on physical goods, where there is a non-zero cost of goods. It's iffy - but there are some pay-what-you-want restaurants that boost their profits with this scheme.

LOL Skipweasel! Maybe it should be Suzie the Spanner lady. And thank you SenorMysterioso for the background info on Rosie the Riveter :)

The bookends proved to be quite popular - we've sold out within hours.

The malware is in Unreality Mag's third party ad server - it's a rogue ad in rotation with regular ads, so you don't always see it, but if you visit Unreality Mag often enough, you'll find it.

Basically it's a pop up that automatically redirects you to a Virus Doctor website. The website will perform a fake scan that will always reveal a fake infection (viral/malware/unauthorized intrusion, etc) and will solicit you to buy a software (Virus Doctor) that can remove these infections. Unfortunately, the only malware is actually the Virus Doctor itself.

Bleepingcomputer has more info about the rogue antivirus Virus Doctor here.

Even if you ctrl-alt-del out of the browser or do a hard shut down, the next time the browser opens up, it will try to restore the session and the malware's fake scan will pop up again. Instead, start a new browsing session.

Regardless, you can/should run an anti-malware/anti-spyware scan (like Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware freeware available at CNET) regularly.

Hm - from what I understood, it's basically this: 1) Marie Roget was murdered. 2) Poe wrote a story about it with details that are suspiciously accurate. 3) Hence the hypothesis that he's the actual murderer.

Not to hijack the thread, but I've personally known some people who took (forced to take) Ritalin as kids and grew up to be, well, Ritalin adults. If you know what I mean.

I know that ADHD is a spectrum, and the severe cases may need medications, but it seems that we're over-medicating children just because there are now drugs available. When all you have is a hammer, all problems look like nails.
