My line of work has me frequently battling computer viruses and today is no exception.
When I cracked the code of this little gem and accepted this assignment I had no idea that I would discover that this virus had evolved into a polymorphic contagion that can actually infect humans!
The full effects of the virus are so far unknown to science however it appears that I was infected exactly two years ago on February 21, 2007.
So far the effects of this virus have been in the form of some very odd behavior, including but not limited to:
Loss of weight, increased stamina, Scores of new friends, Spending more quality time with my kids away from the TV. Hiking thru forests, cities and deserts, travelling thru several states, (of confusion?), climbing mountains, Hopping in the car and driving for 36 hours straight to ink the scrolls of hundreds of logs, Risking life and limb ... for a smiley on a web page! And I’m sure there are many, many more symptoms that I have not yet fully recognized.
Very puzzling though, so far the virus actually seems to be beneficial! So I have to admit that I failed to completely eradicate the virus from the container and instead simply reset the counter until we can fully understand the effects of human infection. If the web page seek and destroy programming can be neutralized, the Evil Dr. Pikb may have stumbled upon a cure for many of mankind’s ails including premature aging and obesity.
As I write this memo, it dawns on me that since my infection I have now discovered 5000 of these mysterious containers. Many of which have been placed by you Dr. Pikb!
Thank you for all you’ve done for the other carriers of this virus who have crossed your path over the years Doc. We’ll miss you up this way! Have a great journey south and show’em how it’s done!
WooHoo!! Cache milestone 5000!
