incka the MsBlaster virus deal i am hearing chatter from my friends it has a second date of attack. Not sure if this si correct but please update all virus and updates and do a defrag to get rid of bad clusters also. I Am hearing that some viruses are being made to hit bad clusters on a hard drive and cause more problems and are not as easily picked up by antivirus software. Again i am not sure if thats true or not. But this si to what i have heard from 6 different sources that dont even know each other that i know about.

The ones that bother me are the ones that "spoof" my email address. It is defamation. I wish I could find the people who do it and sue them for every last cent they have.

When authors of major viruses get caught, they usually end up serving good prison time for the billions of damages anyway. If they had money to pay damages they probably wouldn't be spending their time writing viruses.

To stop them we need to find out what they are rebelling against. If they can write viruses they obviously are intellectual, so are they rebelling against the capitalistic society they find it hard to compete in? Their is a good article called 'Why do intellectuals dislike capitalism?' which might help show why they rebell in this way.
