I was trying to read about it, then my wife ticked me off, so I didn't finish finding out how to protact my computer from it.

I'm waiting until the release the "frosted cornflake" virus.

If you're computer's active, well they have a section in the pharmacy with things that can protect it.

And same here. In 15 years of Mac ownership, I've had one virus. That was back in 1994 when my school's computers got infected with CDEF, a minor Mac virus.

Ha ha, your crappy Apple computers aren't important enough for people to write viruses for! :p

Yeah, it stinks that you can never make anything cool on a Macintosh:

It's worse, I'm a Nathanael. :p

That was actually my final project for the Intro to 3D class back in 2004. The robot model was created in Maya 5 and all the animation and rendering was done in Maya 6 using mental ray.

Hmmm . . but notice that on a MAC everything moves so slow . . . . .even falling is slow . . . . lol . . . j/k BigB!!

As long as you have done the Windows update since October you are fine. There was a security hole discovered then and the update was sent out shortly after. I have no worries over this one . . . now the Blaster Worm and Iloveyou . . those I worried about.

Yeah, that "comic timing" is no joke. I've heard that if you're off by so much as a single frame, you've ruined the whole gag.

For the record, I'm pretty sure that my timing was off by waaaay more than one frame. lol

I was concerned about the worm since I just got a new comp and figured that it'd be just my luck that the machine would get infected. But I updated my security software shortly before Microsoft issued the warning and I can access pc security-company websites (apparently infected pcs are redirected), so I'm breathing a little easier.

;)Yeah, nobody could ever do 3D modeling via Maya on a PC or even Linux. :rolleyes: :p

Actually Maya was PC-only until version 5. :o

I had a bowl of frosted flakes this morning. Quite delicious!

Maya was actually a Unix-based program first, the PC version was a port of that.

My mom gave me her Eee PC, it runs Linux, so viruses are almost non-existant in the wild. The updates to its built-in AV are hilariously small. I almost kept it around, it was fine for a netbook, but it didn't agree with my router which meant leeching, which I wasn't going to do, so I'm selling it.
