Strange, my Trend Micro Maximum Security has no problems with the site and the Virustotal "hits" are actually specialist/ well known legit sites detecting malware themselves. VirusTotal is detecting the good guys.
Quote from VirusTotal themselves ."VirusTotal acts simply as an information aggregator, presenting antivirus results, file characterization tool outputs, URL scanning engine results, etc. VirusTotal is not responsible for false positives generated by any of the resources it uses."
So VirusTotal just passes on false positives ... brilliant!

Denis, you have to go and try  to see if you and it are made for each other. My mistake I did not, just relied on reviews as I was in a hurry. Take your own SDHC card in, some long shots outside the shop, take them home and see. If the shop is worth its salt they will be happy for you to try one or two possibles.

 I've got the Sony HX90V ..the more expensive version. Most disappointed with the shots. Bought it to fit in my pocket with 30x zoom! for a cruise to Russia but results are poor unless you are blessed with very good light. OK for everyday use with minimum zooming.Had to "Photoshop" the results. Fiddly to use. Fingers keep hitting wrong buttons and viewfinder is a fiddle. Need to raise and then pull out the lens. Lots of gizmos but are they worth it when shots are mediocre.
Do you need camera to be small or are you tempted by the zoom? $= in UK as a guide ..we are "cheated"
Your choice of $399 is 399 here. What about bridge camera? In your price range possible example Lumix fz330 with its Post Focus Simulation.

I do not get any warnings as "infiltrations" are blocked. However looking at UBlock Origin history it shows two curious entries blocked / in bold .. first of a javascript trying to run and in the other a reference to missingkids.com/. Maybe of help to admin.

Similar problem. Container ports would have to be re-constructed if ship length extends. At present there are only a matter of metres between ships along quaysides. If you berth a longer ship that would close an adjacent berth, not agreeable to the port operator/ inefficient. How would MOL feel if told Maersk was taking part of their berth etc.
11  Shipspotters all over the world / Help and Advice / Re: Maximum Size of Container Vessel on: February 06, 2018, 06:02:22 pm
Width determined by maximum outreach of largest container cranes = 22 rows/ width at present. Previously max 18 width on Panamax criteria.  Only a few ports have this size of Super Post Panamax cranes. Thus width determined by the ports not the ports by the ships.

15  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: This is why huge plumes of black smoke were seen over Liverpool this morning on: December 13, 2017, 05:11:48 pm
Research has shown that the 15 biggest ships produce more sulphur oxide pollutants than ALL the 960 million cars in the world. Too many independent surveys carried out to include here but see asexample http://www.airclim.org/air-pollution-ships . Whereas land based emissions are being decreased year on year the shipping trend is going in the opposite direction. With a constant flow of cruise ships at Southampton, on occasions 5 a day, and average of 3 container ships this independent report highlights the problem  http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/pollution-cruise-ships-po-oceana-higher-piccadilly-circus-channel-4-dispatches-a7821911.html . Pollution on deck of cruise ship is higher than that of Shanghai or Delhi. Per day one cruise ship emits as much particulate matter as a million cars. So 30 cruise ships pollute as much as all the cars in the United Kingdom.
