This blog is primarily concerned with NIS 2007 (and a bit on NIS 08). I have nothing to say about more recent versions.

This blog is more or less dormant (except for occasional comments on related news), and is being left on-line as a historical record and perhaps as a warning to future generations of anti-virus coders.

Idiots...

A little Symantec message box popped up from the system tray mentioning that Symantec updates are available and politely asking if now would be a good time to download them.

So I click 'Yes'.

It then puts up a message about how now is not a good time for it.

Idiots. Complete fricken idiots.

I'd call them stupid, but that would be an insult to stupid people everywhere.
