Bugs & Viruses "It was during the opening weeks of 1986 that the first PC virus, called Brain, was discovered in the wild. Though it achieved fame because it was the first of its type, the virus was not widespread as it could only travel by hitching a ride on floppy disks swapped between users. Now 20 years after they first appeared there are more than 150000 malicious programs in existence."

This is Off-Topic but it annoys the hell out of me, an Electrical Engineer is infact an engineer who part takes in engineering problems pertaining to actual Electricity, not Electronics.

sorry just one of my pet peeves, as I am an actual Electrical Engineer, with cables, and everything lol
