comment Is it ethical to teach teens about software viruses?
Hi Jim. I agree to what Pierre said. It's important to show the basic things how they work - and what the problems are with that kind of software. Teach them the basics, show them how it works, but also tell them what time consuming, expensive and annoying it was for the people to get rid of the loveletter and the sql slammer. Like the story of the admin that had to stay at work for really, really long hours and missed his childs's birthday because of that virus...
comment Is it OK to put a link to Q&A sites in a program's comments?
I second that. What, if SO decides to close? Then the comment is worthless.
