So, I went out and downloaded a copy of the new Michael Moore film – the one he released for free in North America – from a third party site. Fine. No problems.

The film came with a registration file, which I checked with a virus scanner before opening. No problem. Good. Carry on.

And then I ran the registration file, unleashing the trojan virus, infecting my boot sectors, and generally filling my computer with hate and porn.

All this is to say:

1) I’m an idiot. I know better than to do that. But I did it anyway.

2) Be very careful if you download the Moore film from any location other than the actual film site (Slacker Uprising) because someone is going Liberal hunting.

Dammit.
