Actually, that was last year's release and seems to have been eradicated. There is, however, a new version of the GEV which appears to be making the rounds: Everything works fine, but your diagnostic software insists that there's a major system problem which will cost $30 billion to repair. >NEW WORLD ORDER VIRUS: Probably harmless, but it makes a lot of people >mad just thinking about it. This seems to have been eradicated by the ETHNIC_CLEAN program coming out of the Balkans. >FEDERAL BUREAUCRAT VIRUS: Divides your hard drive into hundreds of >little units, each of which do practically nothing, but all of which >claim to be the most important part of the computer. They also use a percentage of your computer's memory which increases each year-- infected systems eventually begin running a deficit and use the hard drive as virtual memory. Any attempt to clean this virus, or trim its memory requirements, results in error messages from each of the units explaining why this would cause the computer to break down. >POLITICALLY CORRECT VIRUS: Never calls itself a "virus", but instead >refers to itself as an "electronic microorganism". "Microorganism" is sizeist and "electronic" is organo-centric. The accepted term is "Binary American". >ROSS PEROT VIRUS: Activates every component in your system, just before >the whole thing quits. If the system is reactivated, the Perot virus becomes active again and takes over 20% of your hard disk, then sends random interrupts to the CPU.
