Up Chuck

Anyone seen the new TV show "Chuck"? Not anything to plan your evenings around, but mildly amusing. I did find it funny that his method to disarm a bomb that used a laptop as its arming and triggering device was to navigate to an Eastern European Porn site and infect the laptop with a virus, crashing the computer. (Doesn't explain why anyone would use a laptop for that purpose, or why it would have internet access, or how a machine could be infected so quickly, or how a virus manages to "fry" the computer and cause smoke to pour out of it - but, hey, it's really a cartoon, right?)

Let that be a lesson; always use Linux for all your bomb arming and triggering needs.

No, in this case, we WANT the terrorists to use windows. Greater chance of a foul up.

Linux vs Mac

Ok, next episode.

[BuyMore Nerds] "Hey Chuck, you need to handle this ticket!"

[Chuck] "Why can't you guys do it?"

[BuyMore Nerds] "Linux PC install?! We're Mac guys, we don't do that!"
