I sent just the image link to two co-workers, and they both said “you expect me to click on a link named ‘trojanhorse’????”

Good co-workers.

Some comments:

  1. Shouldn’t the process ID be -1184?

  2. If you select Remove as Cassandra, I think that only the Ignore button is enabled.

  3. The user interface for Windows 98BC was definitely ahead of its time.

  4. If that version of Windows was still being used 14 years after its first release, it’s hardly surprising that Troy experienced security problems.

Alan, it was one of the dire consequences of the Y-2K bug. They didn’t listen to Cassandra about that one, either.

If they had applied Windows Security version 1500.B.C.
to the Trojan Horse,
would the world have lost a most useful metaphor?
