Big Bertha Thing virus

18th October 1999
Hi Chris,
Thanks for the Keyboard.drv, but Windows is still down.
The new messages are;-
1. Clock General Protection Fault in gdi.exe (system)
2. Progman Ditto krnl386.exe (system)

Clock.exe see windows. Progman.exe see windows.
The two options seem to be, to try another four files for windows 3.11 or save up and update PC. (130 pounds)

They have a nice 486DX66 16MB 270MB hard-drive 14" SVGA and win 95, at the same place I bought the 386PC. It is four times faster too. My biggest program takes 7 hours on standard IBM PC, 90 minutes on 386 and 20 minutes on 486DX, which has a built in maths co-processor.

My DOS browser can read newsgroups, send/receive e-mail, browse web, but not receive attachments, look up my own site or update it.

Keyboard.drv worked, but closed down every app in windows, so there was no way out. Clever that. The scrub round was in the book, for bypassing emm386. Wait till boot up gets to MSDOS loading and press F8. Step through Config.sys line-by-line with y answer. It then goes through autoexec.bat to last line of win. N answer drops you out to DOS prompt.

Strange to say I can still work on my science maths project using Fortran 77 in DOS. Apps down with windows are Free Agent, WS-ftple, Winzip, F-Prot, Anyware Virus, Chekmate Virus, FirstClass client.

It looks like I picked up a macro virus off a wordperfect attachment from e-mail of a guy in newsgroup. Three virus apps missed it. It is visible in notepad view of file after saving with write.exe. Isolate 386 and do not update site.

You might check that my site is still up, by the back door and let me know the count. www.bertha.ndirect.co.uk/series.htm

It could not have happened to a nicer chap.
Thank you,
Tony Lance

Big Bertha Thing designer

Once there was Big Blue, Baby Bell and Pax IBM.
Now ther is Big Bertha, Baby Bill and Pax Microsoft.

1980 The Greater London Council, Central Computer Service installation standards for IBM mainframe had standard date subroutines as mandatory.

1980 No standards for Prime minicomputer, so date subroutine for program was written to be 2075 OK, by me.

All IBM customers and suppliers applied IBM standards. Enforcement of these standards means that the following instances can only be designer software obsolescence.(Smoking Gun features.)

  1. First PC operating system DOS was written 1980 (IBM/Microsoft) No 2000
  2. Next PC operating system MS-DOS (Microsoft) No 2000
  3. Windows 95 enabled macro virus (Microsoft) admitted
  4. Windows 95 macro virus written by Microsoft.(admitted)
  5. Windows 95 macro virus released by Microsoft.(admitted)
  6. Windows 98 enabled text virus (Microsoft) admitted
  7. Windows 98 no product recall, fix is on Microsoft website only.
  8. Windows 98 to release virus just say it exists and fix is on website.
  9. 1997 MS-DOS 6.20 licensed copy sold for Microsoft with no 2000.
  10. 1999 Windows 3.11 virus closes all applications leaving no exit.

Big Bertha Thing history

1st virus was boot sector virus, which was first sector of floppy disc or start here sector.

2nd virus was program virus, which is enabled with on/off switch, by operating system as primary function thereoff.(exe, sys, com)

3rd virus was macro virus, which is enabled with on/off switch, by wordprocessor or other application software.(doc)

4th virus was zip virus, which is enabled with on/off switch, by zip application software.(zip)

5th virus was text virus, which is enabled with on/off switch, by operating system as a purely viral function, otherwise uneccessary.(txt) Since 1980 the text virus has been impossible. 18 years to crack it, with Windows 98 by Microsoft.

42 million Windows 3.xx users.
12 million e-mail only users.
Windows 95 not known.
Windows 98 not known.


Big Bertha Thing rita

Educating Rita

This film portrays a dominant spouse and a long-suffering student, to the extent upto and including divorce, book-burning and forced pregnancy.

There was zero privacy. Any attempt to re-register or change the password would not work, because the secret could not be kept.

Every posting by the spouse is a violation of OU rules and the students education, causing real pain. Vetting by one moderator or by several using a non-public Rita conf. would not work, because the spouse would use the students name, with all the further alienation that would cause.

A new policy needs to be adopted. The last resort punishment measure, needs to be the first resort measure on compassionate grounds; that of making the student read-only on FC. The student would thank you for it, but not publically.

It would need to be agreed between ACS and OUSA, which is what they are there for.
