Technology Doomsday

>> Wednesday, March 25, 2009


Conficker C. That's the name of the potentially deadly virus set to hit computers on April 1st, April Fools Day. This computer worm, now in its third variant, has been driving people crazy since it first appeared in 2008. Currently everyone is panicking and a $250,000 bounty has been put on the worm writer. (Can you believe it? A bounty on a worm writer!) It must be exciting for some people out there who do nothing in a cubicle all day. It makes their job interesting for the next couple of weeks or until they fix it. And the writer is probably getting a kick out of this as well. (If he or she happens to be reading this, I tip my hat to you. You got some serious skills, but maybe you should do something else with those skills of yours.) Word of advice to everyone else: update your anti-virus stuff, lay off downloading, and use common sense. Let this be a lesson that you should be nice to the tech people behind the counter. They're human too.
