Software That Guards Its House

Well, we're back. I know, I know, it's been over a month and a half, but I had a severe attack of apathy and needed to renew my creative juices. You know, like Gary Larson, Gary Trudeau, Aaron McGruder, and Harvey Dowerman. Oh, Harvey? He wrote his first blog entry in 2002, and hasn't posted since. Still looking for the perfect post.

Here's a nice piece of software: It's a Trojan that installs its own anti-virus scanner on your system. Nice, huh? Your system is fully protected from viruses. How magnanimous. I mean, you won't find that kind of philanthropy from every piece of malware on your computer.

Well, it's not that nice, really. The Trojan just wants to use your computer without any competition, so it bundles itself with a (pirated, natch') copy of anti-virus software, keeping out doze udder guys.

Next up, it will probably decide that the guy at the keyboard is wasting to much CPU time, so I'd watch out if I was using Windows.

This is Zac, from Lauren's TKD class.
I had the best idea for NaNoWriMo.

A Lost/Battlestar Galactica crossover.

The Others could be humanform Cylons, and... that's pretty much where my idea ends so far. But who knows!?

Lauren says she's going to write something for NaNoWriMo, but she's not into BG or Lost, I don't know what it is.

I don't think I'm going to try this year. My first line,

"Dr. Jackson? I'm Alan Shore." has potential, but I can't figure out what Daniel why the SGC wouldn't just beam Daniel out of a situation where he needed a high-powered, and highly visible, defense attorney.
