    People like Crowley should read this since he and his buddies are so sure of their superiority over my faded knowledge:

    I didn't see what they said, but you set yourself up for this when you make at least one "HELP! MY COMP HAS A VIRUS!!" thread per week.

    IT security is a weird business.
    Knowledge by definition is also a strange can of worms.

    One thing I am 100% sure of is my superior intellect when compared to you.


    I work for myself, so this study means nothing. Please don't compare me to those lazy solitaire players.

    There's nothing wrong with solitaire.



    ...........and solitaire's the only game in town,
    where all those stiffs in IT brought us down.
    lots of broken laptops everywhere, and he's
    playing solitaire.

    I guess your superiority explains your 1233 rating. Wow, impressive.

    Which mistake - asking for help, or getting the viruses in the first place? πŸ™‚

    Here is something about the computer business most people do not know. An IT tech secures and maintains computer programs created by someone else. A computer programmer creates programs, in which, the IT tech works for them. Just something to dwell on. πŸ˜‰

    The IT tech typically works for the company that is trying to use the software, and not so much the programmer.

    You know, Norton was the first dude to come out with AV programs. I often wondered if he had a group on the side creating viruses so his program could kill themπŸ™‚ It seemed to me like a reasonable business plan if the creation side were kept secret!

    Still harbouring the fantasy that a high chess rating denotes a high I.Q, a low E.Q maybe. But it probably just means you are good at Chess.
