    Pretty cool huh?
    sorry buzz, but "pretty cool, huh?" does sound like you either think it would to be fun to see the same thing happen here, you seem to want to see these big entities be compromised. i just cant see any other way to interpret that.

    perhaps a better response would be:

    "Pretty scary, huh?"

    if you meant something different, please do tell.

    Sorry. I' start using <sarcasm> </sarcasm> tags.

    I was reading that other article that Uncle Bill posted the link to, and given that I used to work at Siemens and worked very closely with the guys who designed and did application work with their adjustable frequency controls, it struck me as funny that they portrayed it as surprising that anyone writing such a computer virus could have intimate knowledge with how they function. You just need to know who to ask, there are plenty of them walking around.

    What is up with this. Not that Buzz needs your approval, but he brought up a valid point, and I'm sure he does not want to see it happen. The world spends Billions protecting itself from cyber terrorism. It is a real threat. If some worm unminded the Irainians that's great. It is better than bombs and guns, but Buzz noted a real treat to this country, so use your brain and quit belittling someone that uses theirs.

    buzz, you should know you have to use sarcasm tags in here! with the wide extreme of viewpoints in potus you never know what someone will either believe or just take to the bank to mess with you! i learn that over and over with some posters in here

    exactly where did i belittle buzz? or tell him he needed my approval? i was being polite here and just pointing out how his post could be misinterpreted and why hew may have done just that, thats all. buzz - if you took it that way i apologize, but i think you understand where i was coming from. i know buzz doesnt want that to happen, but he got it - he needed sarcasm smileys.

    sorry sambo, nothing to complain about here.
