    I picked this whole topic up at Digg almost 2 hours after it started, I promptly emailed the guy running that Mac Mini site. He replied the day later and in rather good English for, I assume it to have not been his first language.

    So the person responding either demonstrated a very black hat mentality, or they just lied about the whole thing.

    Consider that when I sent this out I knew very little about what had happened and I hadn't considered the possibility that the whole thing was a privilege escalation.

    I hope that's real and not made up...if it is that's ridiculous. Some anti-mac guy who likes his piece of crap windows machine better.

    What's the likelyhood that the whole thing was a setup? 1:1?

    Such nice people in our society. I'm glad that people are out there just spending their time on making other peoples' lives harder in general -- and that goes towards everyone who spends the time to create viruses (virii?), and the like.

    I say we re-think the death penalty for those kind of people.

    I think the death penalty would be a little too humane for someone like this.:p
