Killing gnats??

For some reason there's a pesky gnat running over my screen. I only see this gnat when I look at HF. This pesky gnat seems to really enjoy Dumas' posts. The gnat has caused me to flick my screen so many times I know have a couple large dents on the left side of my lovely screen.

I even tried bug spray. That didn't kill the gnat but it did make my laptop wet.




Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

Perhaps you have a computer bug.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

The first time I saw this gnat, I waited for it to stop, and then went after that little bugger with a thumb-squash! My flat screen monitor flew to the back area of my desk. (Ha Joshie...you think YOU have dents??)
Figured I'd have gnat innards to deal with, but, better than a live gnat!

This little computer bug is gonna catch a virus!

I have left a couple of thumb prints on my screen also. LOL
