Removal of computer malware [19 Jun 2011|05:05pm]

I'm posting this on behalf of my sister. She doesn't have an LJ. Her computer was recently infected with "Security Shield". Does anyone have any recommendations for a computer service (in Orange County or failing that, Los Angeles) that would remove this and any other malware from her laptop computer? I know where I would bring a computer, here in Montreal, but that doesn't really help ;)

If you have any personal experience with the company, please mention your opinions of the company, service, price, etc.

I'm also interested in knowing which places/services to avoid.

Thank you in advance.

Orange County restaurant [06 Feb 2010|02:00pm]

I'm taking someone out to dinner tonight, preferably somewhat near (30 minutes from) Dana Point.  I would like entrees to be around $20 or so.  Any restaurant recommendations? 

Exotic food is fine, maybe even better; sushi, tapas, Ethiopian, or a restaurant with shared foods probably won't work out well.

My girlfriend and I have been trying to find an all you can eat sushi bar here in Orange County, that's actually decent and not ridiculously priced. Around 20-25$ a person. I'm originally from Reno so I don't know my way around here yet (should since it's been about 2 years but I don't)

We've only found about 2 places, but they were just "Eh"

I really want some good fresh unagi, salmon and tempura rolls of some sort which I can never find around here. Techincally I'm in Anaheim but we drive so i'll go anywhere hah

Anyone have some suggestions?

South Seas Polynesian Luau June 27th [25 Jun 2009|09:17am]

Located off Sunset Blvd of mom and pop eateries and seven elevens is the mysterious Gemini Manor. Gemini Manor offers the most unique kind of house that fairy tales are created from. You'll want to arrive early so you can stroll through each of the rooms – from the patio to the inner spa, to the Princess and the Pea room and all the way up to the Jungle room where you'll see monkeys, cats and reptiles.

On Saturday June 27th Gemini Manor will hold its annual South Seas Hawaiian Luau. The evening will be filled with South Seas Polynesian music, dance and entertainment.

Enjoy a spectacular evening with a delicious Hawaiian buffet, a sensational Polynesian revue and a breathtaking fire performance. At the gates of the Manor, you will be transported to a magical world of music, food, dancing and culture.

Tickets include:

Valet parking, an all-you-can eat feast and open (non alcoholic*) bar featuring mouth watering delicacies which will be the perfect prelude to an evening filled with song and dance.

*Due to licensing Gemini Manor cannot provide alcohol. Guests are encouraged to bring their own alcoholic beverages. However, Gemini Manor rarely runs short on alcoholic beverage gifts.

June 27th is the South Seas Polynesian Luau at Gemini Manor

This year all new and mostly new guests will have the opportunity to be taken on a Gemini Manor tour given by a Polynesian beauty.

If this will be your first time to visit Gemini Manor make sure to get there early because the tour is at 8:30pm sharp and there will be no repeated tours. The event starts to really swing by 9pm and touring to show off each of the rooms is too difficult after 9pm.
NOTE: if the request for tours (prior to the event) is high I may schedule a earlier tour.

Tickets include:
  • Free valet parking
  • An all-you-can eat buffet
  • Open (non alcoholic*) bar
  • Buffet
  • Polynesian dancers
  • Fire Performers
  • An evening filled with song and dance.
*Due to licensing Gemini Manor cannot provide alcohol. Guests are encouraged to bring their own alcoholic beverages. However, Gemini Manor rarely runs short on alcoholic beverage gifts.

California - Vote NO on Prop 8! [15 Oct 2008|04:05pm]

This November 4th your vote has the power to influence millions of lives. The California supreme court legalized marriage for gay/lesbian couples effectively giving them access to hundreds of rights such as the right to file joint taxes, and visit a loved one in the hospital. Now extremists want to take that right away under the guise that they are protecting marriage. From who? Straight couples are not affected by loving gay couples having the right to commit to one another. Let us not put hate into the constitution and vote on the right side of history. Regardless of your opinion on the issue, please vote for basic fairness and providing 1,049 rights and benefits to same-sex couples.

Check out the link and video below for more info on how you can get involved in fighting proposition 8!

Gay Days Reminder [02 Oct 2008|06:33am]

A few Web sites have erroneously reported that because of Miley Cyrus's Sweet 16 party on Sunday at Disneyland, Gay Days was canceled. In truth, Miley's party has barely affected the Gay Days Anaheim schedule. (We did have to move Pixar Play Parade viewing time—but that's it!)

So have no fear, break out your red shirts, and join the party!

Gay Days Weekend @ The Disneyland Resort is October 4th and 5th.  For more information and for the schedule of events, click here.

community/public pool with a wading pool? [01 Jul 2008|11:02am]

[ mood | curious ]

does anyone know of a community/public pool in the Irvine/Lake Forest area that has a wading pool? i've got a toddler and an infant, and have to watch both of them at once, so i really need a pool where my daughter can splash around w/o my worrying she is going to fall into the deep end. YMCA has one, but we decided we wouldn't use it enough to make the $52/month fee worth it.
