My Kinda Town

That's right, it is my kind of town, because after months of traipsing all over town like the proverbial headless chicken, I once again have a routine. I am once again an ordinary Chicagoan.

I have two jobs, two kids, but only one wives. I spend a chunk of my day staring at a computer monitor inside the Federal Reserve building. I take my coffee at the Monadnock. I cross Federal Plaza hurriedly, trying not to look up the Dirksen. Iffy spot there, you know, gotta keep your head down. Family Secrets? What Family Secrets? I don't know nothing.

I get off the Red Line at Addison along with throngs of drunken sportsfans, except I am there to pick up my daughter from pre-school. You know, when I was a kid, I used to wonder what it would be like to live next to the Bernabeu or the Maracana. Now I realize that it's not as glamorous as I thought. Of course, those that live in the vicinity of those other venues occasionally have something to celebrate. Perhaps their sportsfans know how to properly interfere with play.

I ride the Red Line with my daughter all the way up to Stella, where she promptly, and rather deftly, pours herself a cup of water from the water cooler, and then goes for the cookies in the display case. I knew there was a reason we started this project.

After I close up at night, I take a bus home. Our family logistics preclude me from having a car at that point. Oh well, good riddance. Who needs a car when you can one-fifty-one it home at all hours? Like I said, my kind of town.

I've just recently purchased Mt4 Protect and wanted to tell you guys about my experience with it.
I was worried about all the Metatrader Malware out there at the moment as I heard you can get them from downloading Expert Advisors from the web.
While I don't download decompiled EA's the last thing I want is some hacker getting my account details and draining my forex account as I have built it up into quite a bit of $$$. That's why I purchased MT4 protect so it can stop my account from getting attacked. I think the price is well worth the protection I will receive
I bought a copy at [url=http://www.mt4protect.com/] http://www.mt4protect.com/ [/url] via paypal and my product code was sent to me within 4 hours.
I installed it and its great It works in the system tray and scans my computer in real time to detect any attacks.
The EA optimization tool is so great - you can allocate more memory to your MT4 terminal so your trades get executed faster! There are also heaps of registry tweaks and cleanup features that have speeded up my Windows XP PC.
With crackers and virus attacks hitting Forex traders all the time now I definitely think that MT4 Protect is a worthwhile investment.
