Dave Barry on computer security

Dave Barry on computer security:

I am beginning to suspect that the way “antivirus” and “firewall” software protects you is that it makes it basically impossible for your computer to (1) send email; (2) receive email; (3) use your home network; or (4) contact the Internet in any manner. It’s a lot like turning your computer off, except you have to pay for it, and then periodically pay to “update” it so that it can continue effectively preventing you from using your computer.

Not that I am frustrated or anything.

    Huh? I’ve never found it a problem to use the web or email. Maybe you’re doing something wrong. (Like using a Wintel PC)
