Favorite Android anti-malware app

From: John Aldrich 
What's everyone's favorite app for anti-malware on Android devices? My
LG came with Cheetah Mobile's anti-virus/anti-malware. I've had some ads
start popping up on my phone lately when I unlock apps locked by CM, so
I wonder why they're not being caught by CM. I'm trying to scan with
Malware Bytes right now, but it keeps crashing for some reason. :(

There is a Linux Client (CLI) that must be compiled.
Ditto for the linux version of the RMS Gateway program (middleware server).
I even found GUI Wrappers written in GO for a potential client.

Attempts to port winmor(SOUND CARD MODEM) have stalled. WINMOR was written in .NET.
A new project to replace WINMOR geared to cross platform use IS WRITTEN IN C#!
And will still need MONO to run.

Wi-Fi issues

From: John Aldrich 
Hey, guys and gals... I've got a weird Wi-Fi issue. I had to reset my
router (TP-Link TLWR1043ND) yesterday because I couldn't remember the
login. I've got it working now, but I can't get my phone to connect up.
It keeps saying "avoided due to poor internet connection." My PCs work
fine, as best I can tell. Any ideas????

New (rebuilt) Linux box

From: John Aldrich 
Picked up a PS2 to USB adapter at lunch today. Now my Linux box is
running like a charm on the new hardware. :) Still need to break down
and pick up a USB KVM, but that's on the back burner now that I have
things running with the PS2 to USB adapter.

Linux-friendly KVM

From: John Aldrich 
Hey, anyone got a recommendation for a Linux-friendly KVM switch?
Preferably one that will translate PS2 to USB. I don't really want to
buy a new keyboard and mouse, when the ones I have work fine. I just
need to convert them to USB so I can get rid of the PS2 to USB
converters I have for my two Dell boxes and am about to buy for my
rebuilt Linux box. Unfortunately, my new motherboard, in addition to
only having HDMI out for on-board video only take PS2 for mouse, and
requires you to use a USB keyboard. Also, unfortunately, my current KVM
doesn't do USB. :(
I'm finally ready to abandon PS2 connections to my computers, but I
really dont' want to buy a new keyboard and mouse. :) HELP!!!!
