I don't quite understand the obsession people have with viruses and what not. I mean, if you try to understand what you do actually does, it's a bit obvious sometimes what contains a virus. I know, sometimes your email program downloads emails automatically, but don't open the attachment if it's a .exe. And with firewalls, why does it matter? Oh no, someone can hack into your system and… uh… have a look see. Maybe he'll see your pictures! EGAD. Unless you're a multi-million dollar corporation with your money market account information and social security numbers of all eleventy trillion of your employees on your network, you probably don't need the 8 layers of security that McAffee and Norton would have you believe. You're a small fish in a big pond. You don't matter to the corporate hacker. Don't believe all the virus hype. Really.
Now, if you know my IP you can hack my system pretty easy. I just run the basic firewall on the router. It's pretty easy to get around, if you do some googling. All you'll get is a couple files with my bank account number that has $20 in it and my credit card statements with the first 12 digits blanked out. You can know my passwords too. They're REAL hard to figure out (isn't that right, alex). But I'll hunt you down, hotter on your trail than the fires that burn in hell, and I will get you. Actually, I'm a nancy. unless you're 1337 h4x0r I don't care. well, even if you are 1337 h4x0r I don't care. I don't care.
