    Default Hearing voices when opening PD.

    Anybody else occasionally hearing 'Amy' or some other voice talking about recipes on-line or other services when they open the digest?

    No, but that sounds like theres an ad running somewhere (I run adblockers, so I probably can't see it) or malware on your PC (or the board is still compromised). Run a virus scan and Malwarebytes on your PC and then try. If it still continues and you see no ads, your PC is haunted and you need to call an exorcist.

    Never heard it until I traded my XP machine for Win 7. And it gets regular scans with spybot s&d, malwarebytes and AV.

    I don't think an exorcist would help. This is more likely a cyborg woman hiding in the dark recesses of Able's server dungeon, coming out occasionally to mess with our heads...or maybe a rogue AI with recipes to push. Like recipes for evil or something.

    Actually this very thing happened to me a couple days ago. I freaked out because I was at work so I hit mute real quick. I didn't see any ads running anywhere. In fact the other sites I had up were all internal sites for my company. Weird.

    Yes, I have heard this too...several times. Started looking around for a pop-up ad
    but don't find anything. If this is not intentional, then something is awry.

    Honestly, I've never heard of this before. That's... creepy. It's happening to so few of you (only 2 to this point, right?) that I have to lean towards it being something on your end, though I suppose that's not necessarily the case.

    I hear it rarely, also. So weird. It's only on this site. Sounds like an ad. It's not on our end.

    I don't know if it's related what's happening here, but Chrome is throwing a malware warning up when I try to open PD.

    Several weeks ago I noticed my browser being directed to this "binfostat.dyndns.org"
    when loading PD, but didn't know what it was so didn't worry about it. Am pretty sure
    it's not doing it any more.

    A full scan using Spybot with the latest definitions turned up nothing.


    EDIT: Ok I was wrong!! Just came on and noticed the page was very slow loading so
    looked down and saw "waiting for binfostat.dyndns.org". This is the only sight I see
    this on, or perodically hear that voice.... Could these two events be connected?

    I think I will download Malwarebytes now.

    Ok, heard the voice again earlier today when trying to check in while the
    board was down. It is a female voice talking about starting a recipe search
    and she ends with "press the button to get started".

    Able, do you have a food/cooking website hosted on the same server as PD?

    when the board was down you would at best have gotten a empty screen since the total site was removed.
    best chance is to check your browser opening up 2nd page/ghosts

    there is only PD on that server

    It's been a month or so since I've heard from 'Amy.'
