RE: Bigger burger roll needed

Virus Friendly and phased might be to young to remember the old saying "what
you want the next generation to believe begin teaching this generation". It
is a known fact that the major cause of computer criminal acts is the result
of careless and uneducated users. I have said it again and again, the "User"
is the best defense any Admin can have. If she or he understands the dangers
they will not click the tempting link or download the pretty card. And if
they take what they have learned home with them they diminish the Botnet
army. As far as "16 year olds can pass the CISSP exam" statement, that's a
dam educated user.

Thank You
Randall M
