They've updated the story since I first posted it!

Looks like now it really should be in the Area 51 forum...

I've talked to several security experts about this today and this is a non-issue at this time.

Hey Nick.. congrats on being one of the lucky artistic locals who broke free of the small-town, cheap-beer chains. You ever run into fellow ex-pat Dick Fausset out in Cali?

Just to clarify -- I'm not anti-Mac, I just wanted to welcome Mac users to the daily hell that is being a Windows user. Just a gift-basket to the new neighbors and all :)

Of course, that was before the story was debunked.

Still, I think it's only time before some eager beaver script kiddie tries to tackle the Mac. Unless... it's Steve Jobs behind all these Windows viruses! Now that's a rumor for Area 51! :)

Just to stay on topic, my cam was buzzing so I squirted WD-40 at it and it started smoking and made the air all stinky. Then I saw a flying saucer with the apple logo on it. So that's it.

Ted while that is in fact how I usually converse with my "homiees" in this particular instance I was referring to John's location, Athens GA, which is the home of the University of Georgia (where I went to college) our mascot is the Bulldog, which people call "dawg" spelled that way (perhaps do to years and years of drinking by the alumni) But I appreciate the ebonics "humor" as it reminds me why I left Glendale.
