Ding Dong The Worm Is Dead!

Tommy Tutone – Jenny (867-5309)

Today’s Quote: “I think ‘naked’ is a word others came up with but we’re not naked; we are dressed in God’s clothes, the best clothes of all.” — Emily Robbins

I finally eradicated the worm that was trashing my computer. My Windows TCP/IP utilities, cmd.exe, regedit, and Task Manager are all working again. There were multiple pieces of viral flotsam scattered across my drive and I hope I got them all. I’ll sleep better knowing I got the worm that reinfected my PC on every bootup. I have a pretty good idea how it got there — P2P. When you get your downloads from the back alleys of the Internet, you often get a little something extra. Unfortunately, everyone who uses that computer also gets that little something extra.

“We want to enable pets to play games in a way very similar to the way human players’ play. To play a computer game with your hamster would definitely make us think about where we have come with digital tradition now.” — Vladimir Todoroviæ, a collaborator on the multi-species game Mice Arena.

How are you gonna feel when your hamster kicks your ass at Grand Theft Auto, Doom, or Donkey Kong? My cats are lazy and useless enough; I don’t need them playing video games all day.
