Clarification

Posted by Max | Thu Oct 3rd 2002 1 a.m.

I just wanted to clarify and correct a misperception that may have arisen
out of my recent post about Tetris. I am not now suicidal at all, so please
don't worry. I was only suicidal once in my life. In Feb. 2000 I told my
out-of-pocket doctor, who looked like Gray Davis, that I was sorta
despondent and worried about G2K a lot. He suggested perhaps I was
psychotic, and recommended the potent drug Zyprexa, which is for people who
hit their heads with hammers to let the voices out, among others. It also
induces strict rumination, and in my case, one month of sleeplessness, which
made me feel quite bad. I got a new Dr. who said the Zyprexa was a blunder
and once off it I was fine. No problems since. Which brings me to Tetris
Poetry. You only get to type a line if you get a high score, and you can't
see the other lines in advance, so you get a sort of time-capsule long-term
random-generated poem. Afflicted/addicted was my new high score; all the
rest were from early 2000 or before, hence the mention of quietus with a
bare bodkin. So don't worry fellas! The new Dr. said "son you're not
crazy, you're just a little sad" and that the psycho-pill would wear off,
which it did, so mom look what I can do, I can wear big-kid pants too! I'm
a big kid now!

Then I was a graduate,

    Actually, I do prefer the term "voluptuous velcoity"
    to, say, "volute enumeration."

    -WHO CREATES VIRUSES?
    http://www.crime-research.org/news/2003/05/Mess3004.html

    By Timofey Saytarly
    Date: May 30, 2003

    Viruses are known well, but "virus-makers" are not. According to Sarah
    Gordon from Symantec the generalized nature of virus-makers is the
    following. They are men of 13-26 years, rather clever or overwhelmed with
    desire of self-assertion and to become members of certain society; as a rule
    they are encouraged with revenge, sociopolitical motives, desire to show
    weakness of technologies, and just with mere curiosity. As a rule, such
    "virus-maker" creates viruses not with the purpose of causing harm, but to
    be in "advance of technologies ".

    Often "virus-makers" do not aim to do harm to someone intentionally; they
    dispatch viruses as "experiment". They do not realize that damage which is
    done by their "creations" and do not understand that they became initiators
    of lots of problems. Frequently they are estranged from a real life and live
    in own illusory world.

    Sarah Gordon thinks that even toughening legislation cannot stop
    "virus-makers". Interrogation has shown that "virus-makers" would not refuse
    the business even knowing about criminal prosecution for virus distribution.

    Sarah Gordon doesn't consider virus-makers as hackers. Hackers aspire to get
    the control over computer systems, virus-makers only send a virus by e-mail.

    "Virus-makers" believe they do something "cool" and high-end. But actually
    it is not so. Computer viruses are rather simple programs and it is not
    necessary to have profound knowledge for virus-making. And at the age of
    24-25 years most of them understand it, lose interest and give up this
    business.

    What exactly are computer viruses? Who programs them and why? What kind of
    world is hidden behind this daily phenomenon
  • Steve Kudlak | Wed Jul 28th 2004 8:06 a.m.
    I think a lot of this is exteremely speculative and highly
    questionable. It is certainly laden with stereotypes. The whole
    idea of the "maladjusted male who hasn't quite grown up" is
    a persistent piece of cultural mythology. There is probably
    some truth to it, but it is overblown.

    With the fact that viruses (Latin Plurals get cumbersome here;)
    With some viruses getting very sophisticated and perhaps being
    used to be spread spam makes it unlikely that it is all that
    simple. Without having a larger number of people who make viruses
    to talk about it we can only guess.

    It will be intetresting if viruses evolve in the direction of doing
    very little to disturb the computer user but steal idle cycles to
    accomplish the virus makers wishes, like distributing email etc.

    What I am saying this is an interesting question but usually a
    few stereotypes are trotted out and that it is about it. it must be
    admitted that I have known some people who they how to would get
    great joy of upsetting the hyper-capitalist, anti-nature technical
    world. I am somewhat biased, since I used it, see more postive than
    negative from it I don't agree with their ideas, but those I know of
    this ilk are so negative towards it, they know little about it and
    how it works. Besides Hummers makes much more visible targets to
    dump gasoline on and torch. Although most of my close friends even of
    the anti-tech ilk would prefer to sticker offending vehicles or at worse
    ruining the paint job, tho none have got even to the spray paint phase.
    they haven't burnt my workstation, nor do I think they plan to do do.
    Now if I worked in a lab with experimental animals it might be different.

    Have Fun,
    Sends Steve

    The bikini can be a garment inflected with a certain amount of feminist
    concern: who is wearing it? is it part of a dubious fashion layout in a
    women's magazine? does the wearer look good? Sometimes looking at a
    woman's body becomes a tiring hyper-politicized activity.

    A little clarification. the original concept of the carrizo diaries was
    mine ........christina asked me if I wanted to collaborate......I
    presented the original idea and we brought sindee nakatani
    on..........we had to modify it to fit the time line of the show and we
    ALL worked on the concepts and content..........

    to say that I was some sort of "fiction writer" helper is untrue,wrong, a
    massive insult to me and to sindee and is an apparent attempt for one
    person to try to take credit for a project that was a group effort and
    wasn't even her original concept............the larger show of prints was
    her show....

    I was ASKED TO PRESENT A CONCEPT..........AND THAT WAS HOW IT
    BEGAN......END OF STORY
