I'm so sick of hearing "the perfect storm." I've heard it at least 10 times in the past week.

Mainly retarded Chinese ****ers click-click-clicking every single thing they see. As far as being able to completely cripple a whole country's internet access, I see that as a possibility by using this gigantic bot net to DDOS.

yeah but it's a catch 22...once you start doing a DDOS, then you'd better make sure it isn't attacking the very computers you are using for that DDOS attack.

If the Acer Aspire One I'm currently using blows up, I'll take it back to CostCo and get another one for free.

If one of my Macs blows up, I'll return it to Apple and get another one for free.

All my data's backed up daily and my email is kept remotely in the Internet equivalent of Fort Knox. I can click whatever I want!
