    Onekdailyprofits scam

    For, it seems, years now, I have constantly seen adverts amongst my browsing, even for websites such as

    If I deleted it, then it reappeared next time I booted up. Eventually, I...

    ZTE Modem

    I have a ZTE modem which we have not used for quite a few years. It is 12.3 gigs in size with a USB connection, I presume USB2.

  11. Re: Have you heard of Katherine Johnson? - NASA mathematician
