I feel old

I just read an article about FireFox 3.0 on Ars Technica that has the following quote:

"One interesting request appears near the end of the list: the wish for Firefox to be the "fastest browser on the market," even in low-memory configurations such as PCs with only 256 MB of RAM."

For me, a low-memory system has about 32 MB of RAM. I feel old.

The Internet is a scary place

Warning: do not show this video to someone who is computer illiterate. They might never dare use the computer again.

Computer being infected with metric fuckton of malware, set to opera music (YouTube)

Thanks to McAfee for giving me something to scare my mother with. >:)

More fun (or horrifying, depending on your POV) videos if you search for windows spyware on YouTube.
