Sounds like the "CoolWebSea rch" virus. If they were smart they'd just
modify that instead of writing a virus from scratch...

Right. Best would you you give them a few hints on ho to do that and
what to pay attention to, so it'll spread wider than the original.
Tomorrow we're all busy visiting our stupid friends who opened the
"your_message.p if" for the 1000th time.

I run Gentoo Linux as a non-root user.

I only use Windows for work where a virus is basically a free day off.

You're afraid of being a root user?

No. He's bright enough to realise how astoundingly stupid it is to use the
root account except when you really, really have to.

Nonsense. I've been developing software professionally on Windows,
using a non-administrative account for nearly everything I do, since
NT 4.0 was released. People who do everything on Windows using an
administrative account simply haven't bothered to learn how to use
the OS.

Prior to the introduction of the "runas" command, it was useful to
have something like Microsoft Services for Unix installed, so that
you had some equivalent to Unix's "su" and could run individual
commands with a different user's authority. Now that capability is
included with the base OS, and there is no excuse for working as an
administrative user where it's not necessary.

I frequently hear that "some applications, such as Microsoft Office,
don't work if you're not an administrator". I use MS Office - I
loathe it, but it's a company standard - every day, and I have never
had it refuse to do what I needed it to do simply because I was using
a non-administrative account. Because it's full of bugs and
generally brain-dead, yes, but not because I'm not running it as an
administrator.

Windows has many problems, but this is not one of them.

It's not a windows problem. It's the problem of specialist in any area
but programming, who write a good program (good functionality - bad
coding and GUI) that refuse to work as non-admin. Most common mistakes
are:
-write files (temporarily) to the program's directory
-store information in an .ini file (in program or windows directory)
-write to HKLM instead of HKCU
....

There's no problem with Windows these days - it's the coding style of
old school programmers. With Vista a lot will change - at least they
say so...

I was messing around with a project, trying out various compression schemes. One of them was for arithmetic coding. My implementation is .. novel ... because it uses the Rational library for buring those CPU cycles. Here's the output when you run it on the command-line with the file itself as the training set and some text from the file % python arithmetic_coder.py arithmetic_coder.py "def for in tot R"

I recently tried out the Google "top coder" contest, as a C++ coder. I noticed immediately that they expected me to know STL. To which I say, what the fuck?! I may be missing something, but at what point when learning C++ was I supposed to have picked up STL? I ask because at every job I've had, and every job interview for that matter, whenever STL comes up it's not I, but a manager who says effectively yuck, we don't use that crap.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
