"Damn. Now you've made me want to see someone write a programming language that is all emojis. We could call it ᗧ++."
I'm sure nobody has thought of that...
I like your proposed name more, though :p

WOW! I have 2889 minutes to edit that post! XP
That a patch exists doesn't mean that the patch has been used. And even if it has been, it won't prevent most users to download/run the malware and lose their data. It just won't spread so easily.
And there was me thinking that was SOP in the so called "intelligence agencies".
Have the standards gone to hell or is this just a wheels within wheels within wheels kind of thing?
And you have a Silver Badge.
You should have known better.
Common users applying logic and common sense to an unexpected email with a link|attachment to an unsolicited file|URL?
That will be the day when I grant them all admin privileges.
(Edit:) Sorry, forgot to mention about the dialog box thingy, that was a good one. Nearly peed meself.
"Icon chosen for its picture rather than its significance"
"All hands man the pumps... blah, blah, blah... "
"Happy fella in a ring"
FSCK YOU!!! Now I can't dismiss that image off me mind.
P.S.: Somehow I think THIS icon is the most appropriate one for the article and subsequent discussion --->
But... ENCRYPTION BAD!!!
<moreblockquote><blockquoteUse an alternate appendage</blockquote>
Alternate? It's hot-swappable?</moreblockquote>
As of the research I've been doing... it seems like yes, it could be.
Though maybe not in the sense you might have been thinking of, mind you...
It's not the piss. It's the attitude.
Yeeesss... that would be scary, but, how many would many be? Something like one, two, three, many, many-one, many-two, many-three, LOTS?
Even then, I would be scared, though...
Well, the devs for the BrainPal in Old Man's War had already solved that problem.
But, of course, that was fictional and totally unrelated to real life...
Freaking impressive, I'd say...
"... sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. For most people, that's what it is..."
In this last two weeks only I've been asked to do just that "Just do your magic" (translated, but sounds quite similar in spanish. And yes, you should read it in ALL CAPS!!1!) about 5 times. At work. One of them it was about some carpentry thing that was in NO WAY related to IT. But that's for another rant.
As I see it, you can't put the blame in those non-techy ones that have bought that shiny little thingy doing something they don't even know why they want it for. They do NOT know, NOR they want to know how to secure them, or even make them work if at first them don't when trying to access your secured network (and subsequentially yelling at you because "teh fscking WIFI isn't working. AGAIN!!1!").
Please, put the DefaultUserName(random) and DefaultPassword(random) at random locations in the FsckingManual(PrintedPrettyPlease).
Better leave it at this... Let's not start with the family, friends... Too many interconected thingies. Can we go back to the 80's, please? I could even come to terms with the music...
"Bugger fixing something, I'm going to cannibalise and improve!"
That's the spirit!
And you'll notice the rest of your gadgets will behave or even improve once you start with the cannibalising.
Welllll... the HDD replacing part is just the 35th step. The previous 34 ones are just to get there. And THAT part's even easier than LEGO, nowadays. You just CANNOT force-plug the connectors... Well, you can. I've seen it. Broken bits of plastic and all ("Yeah, some bits fell off... But IT FITTED! This HD IS @$#&*!")...
Aniway, your example is not exactly about a hot-swappable caddy in a server.
I was thinking more on the line of the original Syndicate by Bullfrog.
Though I can see how you came to your conclussion.
By the way, have 1 upvote for the old times.
Cat servant here, too.
Yes, I am.
