Windows isn’t a virus, viruses do something.
My software never has bugs. It just develops random features.
Enter any 11-digit prime number to continue.
Yes it is a good day for CyberJoke Post today 10/7/16 where we try to make light of some IT life since it is too hard to make the heavy lifting of Cyber understanding. Sometimes good to take a day off.
Here is an interesting website: Surfersam.com
“I have traveled the length and breadth of this country and talked with the best people, and I can assure you that data processing is a fad that won’t last out the year.”

Cyberjoke Friday to break up the Cybersecurity posts:
realize that our kids and other young people are using technology in ways we don’t understand if we let them… that is why I try to use new technologies and apps every so often.
Some kids that grow up coding will look at tasks in a different way..
I’m sure the teacher said write “I will not throw paper airplanes in class”500 times
Sure he can write those 7 words 500 times or he can write a function which would have written it if compiled in C.
for (count=1; count<=500;count++)
printf(“I will not throw paper airplanes in class”);
I always try to find other ways to attempt to show that hackers will hack you even if you don’t know how they do it. They think different, and thus it is unique new problem that Cybersecurity pros have.
Since it is Friday I will leave you with:
Another Cyberjoke installment on this day in April:
All I can say is that maybe we can learn more from jokes than telling you not to do something….

And a real news story from England¹: It is tough when a command does what it is supposed to do – I guess we can chalk that up to inexperience, naivete, or just plain stupidity.
There was a reason when I worked at an unnamed company and all commands on a critical system were double checked by another person. This system worked (SPOE – Second Pair of Eyes)
I need a SPOE please was a frequent call on some days.
