My computer's been compromised?  Nonsense - it's strictly ones and zeroes
here.  No grey areas.  No hint of a compromise of any sort, even if I ask
nicely.  Anyway, I'm more concerned about your advice to "follow
instruction".  What instruction?  Do you mean the offerings of those ladies
who advertise their services in phone boxes... you know, "discipline" or
"correction for naughty boys"?  I'm sorry; I may be British but I don't go
in for that.  Or perhaps, by "instruction", you mean that I should find any
set of instructions handy.  I have some here for putting up Ikea shelving...
let's try that...

yours impertinently
