Missing Money:
Three men decide to split the cost of a $30 motel room, each paying $10. After they have gone to their room, the motel manager realizes that he has overcharged them; they qualify for the special rate of $25. The manager goes to their room with $5, and the men, impressed by the manager's honesty, tip him $2 and each keep $1. Each man has paid $9 for the room (the original $10 minus the $1 returned), totalling $27. Adding on the $2 tip makes $29. Where did the extra dollar go?

OK, so what's the speed of dark?

I had never received a virus before, but over the last two days I have recieved 11. When I first spotted them, I thought I was being sent Trojans. But it turns out, that they are all versions of the nasty worm W32.Sircam.Worm@mmW32

It is great having a Mac. If I were using a PC, my computer and I would be in a real mess right now.

Mac.Simpsons@mm is an applescript worm which goes by the name "Simpsons Episodes". It's pretty harmless, but its out there.
