Old School Review: MegaMan I

You know summer is almost here when thousands of students across the US are graduating from high school and college and begin a new life. That of course includes yours truly but I thought I would start the summer early by going through one of the biggest franchises in Capcom history and no its not Streetfighter but Mega Man.

Conficker Still Going At It

In my last post about the Conficker Worm, it was well on its way if pushing out a lot of spam and I believe I have gotten quite a few from that little guy.  Regardless if it came from Conficker or not I still deleted the emails and what not, however,  Conficker is still going pretty strong at 50,000 computers a day and it would seem that India, US, Brazil are topping the charts in infections and in the heat map below you can check what countries are the …
