Because a dippy Kazaa user let a virus into my heavily-guarded-but-not-well-patched network, that's why. Out of 80 systems, 20 were weak enough to get zapped by the W32.BLASTER worm, and it's taken me 2 days of bug hunting to squash them all. Ironically, the amount of time it took me to clean things up is probably LESS than the time it would've taken to make sure all 80 systems were patched up all the time.
God I love Microsoft.
Kazaa is now blocked up tighter than one of Ellen's "hasn't-pooped-in-4-days" cat patients, the dip is now chastised, and things seem to be settling back in. Your regularly scheduled fragfest should pick back up very soon.
And Ellen? She wore out the power supply to her laptop.
