Just wanted to make sure everyone was aware what may go down tomorrow. If you have getting microsoft updates or virus protection updates you should not be affected.

I refuse to be concerned as long as that as long as ThreatCon remains at 1.

No one knows what is going down tomorrow. If you're infected, you're already infected. All it is doing tomorrow is changing the way it updates itself. Click Here (networkworld.com)

Nothing that can happen tomorrow will be as annoying as answering questions about this over the last week. Its Y2K all over again.



You believe me, don't you?
Please believe what I just said...

I'd guess it is toast. The ones on Myth Busters were throwing shards into a ballistic gel dummy about .5 - 1" deep. I doubt the optics would survive a high speed impact of one piece, let alone 1/3 of the CD mass.
