I looked anyway on your suggestion.  Not NASA, but NASA isn't NASA anymore.  I
think they've turned things over to Elon Musk and other entities, but would
they come right out and say it?  Nope!  I hate liars.  They are the 2nd-worse
form of being on the planet.

I don't believe that exists in the business world; I think their motto is "we
can't make enough money".  (-:

I wish I had that, but there is probably a yearly fee attached to it.  I got in
 just in time with Malwarebytes and get free upgrades and definitions.  That
now costs US$60.00 per year.  It does a great job of protecting my computer.

 PQ> There will be some form of FB thing happening.  What's FB?

FB is something I don't want.  If you install Windows 10 on a drive and setup
say... Microsoft Outlook as your mail client, it forces you to join FB.  I
dual-booted back to Windows 7 before I uttered something under my breath. (-8
