Viruses kill

The hospital network got overwhelmed by a computer virus attack today. The network is the way various hospital systems communicate to each other. Since the Robot could not receive data, cartfill was delayed. I'm sure there is morbidity and mortality directly related to events such as this.

If you think writing computer viruses are cool, think again. The person you're killing may be someone you love. Assholes.

Indeed. People who write that crap never seem to think about the effects. Hey guys -- you're not just jerking around with companies' profits and random home users!

Virus writers Vs. The Laws Of Good.
Normally, if you have the mindset that creating something that exploits weakness and destroys personal/professional property, then killing a few hundred people is just another footnote.

It is sad to think that the "human" experience needs to include people with great intelligence and very little wisdom indeed.

Someone once said "It takes all kinds" but I disagree, I think we "Have all Kinds and we are stuck with them."

Time to change their mind.

With a brick.
