  • A DOS attack is when someone breaks into your computer case and replaces the CPU with an old 8088, and you find that your computer shows you nothing but a C:\> prompt.

  • ROFL too much.... I am in college and taking Network Administration. While in class I was on Technet and I stumbled upon this forum..... I read your answer out loud to the class and suprisingly my teacher was the one that laughed the most. I know this is not an answer to the question in this thread but I had to mention something. And to see your a Microsoft employee is awesome!!! ( My teacher bashes Microsoft all the time also!!!)
