Why do certain types create such things?  Probably for the experience of
'the power' that this episode in this group has offered.

In any case, using my Mac, I see many more worms and virii than are ever
visible when I'm using my PC, and of course they don't effect a Mac.  :)
This particular worm is quite harmless, except that it proliferates (if
that can be considered dangerous), but others (which I assume are invisible
to most PC users) are very destructive!

Since there are so few of us Macintosh users, hackers leave us alone -
pretty much.   With the growing future of the internet, for this and so
many other stability and productivity reasons, it makes even more sense now
-to change platforms, if at all practicable.  You don't want to lose your
Fm data. ;)

It's my recollection that when interviewed at lunch Glenn Gould
preferred the old Windsor Arms Hotel - in the Restaurant and the
WineCellar, not sure about the Courtyard Cafe ... in the days when
George Minden operated the place.

They ripped it down but it has been rebuilt (somewhat) and I have not
been there but perhaps one of their new restaurants has named a dish
for him?
