    Dumbest quote in the article:

    "Using flash drives to help us put out the paper was either a stroke of genius or the luckiest shot I've ever seen," said Frank Corsoe, The Blade's sports editor.

    I'm not sure what he's even trying to say. :D

    Well they do say that
    "In the end, the Macs and the flash drives saved the day. The paper got off the presses three hours late, but it was printed - and delivered. The product was far from perfect." and that
    "But it will lead to better security systems. "We're setting up a disaster recovery room that will be manned at all times with computers that are immune to viruses," Mr. Zerbey said. "

    as well as "In the end, the Macs and the flash drives saved the day. The paper got off the presses three hours late, but it was printed - and delivered. " So it is not all bad.

    Where were all those vulnerable exploits for those 'smug' macs? I hope they've been reading the 'big' press comments and are going to address this ever present security problem. :rolleyes:

    Translation "I don't know anything about computers and this concept of moving data from one machine to another amazes me."

    I often bring photos from home to work on a flash drive, I'm a damn genius by this guys standards :rolleyes:

    Genius can mean the list of useful facts you know... or it can mean your ability to improvise successfully even if you DON'T know a lot of useful facts.

    I'm thinking the newspaper managed the latter rather than the former.

    He is a Sports editor that means that he doesn't know or understand anything about technology. :rolleyes:
