I had a nasty hijacker/spyware,,, it took forever to find someone who had the beginnings of the clue on how to get rid of it, as SpyBot and another common one were not zapping it.

You absolutely can. I like to start in flats, just to save space at
the beginning, easier to keep them warm, etc. Also, I can pick the
best looking seedlings to go into the cups.

accidentally forgot to back up one important file..... which must have gotten
fried or something, because I could not even copy that file off using a dos>

I got some really, really bad spyware in my computer a few weeks ago.
I thought I was going to lose it and did a backup. I'm the worst at
