"With 5,000 PCs under your control--none of which are being destroyed or showing actual qualifiable damage as a result--you will fit under the radar, probably make some money and you probably won't get arrested."

The Neuro Search Engine...
"We have developed a new search engine technology that allows you to search peoples' minds for factual information. Think of it as a brain powered version of Google. Take advantage of the accumulated knowledge of hundreds of individuals to find the answers you are looking for. Over 300 student volunteers at research universities have been fitted with wearable internet devices. These devices have electrodes that attach to the scalp, and when the device is connected to a PC, the Internet, and our neural scanner network, it allows people to search their thoughts from our website."
Seems like talking to a computer instead. May be good entertainment :)

Microsoft ended mainstream support (i.e., free technical support) for Visual Basic 6.0 on March 31, 2005. This move indicates that there will be no more bug fixes, service packs, new versions, or, most importantly, enhancements to the programming language. This is worrisome to the classic VB development community because VB6 remains the preferred approach for many kinds of applications; in particular, mainstream business applications with a database component.
