Software to Fear..

March 19, 2010

Closing down my desktop computer has become even more nightmarish than ever. In addition to those annoying messages announcing the closure of programs you never knew you had opened or knew were even part of your computer comes a message that could strike fear into the user not just because it is masterful in its ambiguity but because can we be sure it is only talking about a bolshie piece of code.

“changes have been made that affect the global template, Normal.dot. Do you want to save these changes?”

A terrifying concept. The shape and form of the whole globe might be changed by a single click of my mouse? Software that dares us to remake the world?

I always say, no.
