    Yeah, you do that. Infect all the computers at work. Well except for that Z-80 machine over in the corner, running CP/M.

    Do I hear the sound of a wooden leg stuck in a knothole in the floor leaving poor old Long John Silver going round in circles? I’m sure he’s involved with the email somewhere.

    That should be “VIPew” who was the HR director and headhunter for the organization … Captain Flint’s mob was very inclusive, and welcomed amputees, and the visually impaired to join. They even had an OTJ program of support animals (though many disliked the noisy birds).

    I think Rita should be honored.

    I hadn’t heard of the black dot of death, so I googled it and came up with the following:

    A new bug is causing iPhone users’ iMessage app to crash, and people are taking advantage of it. The bug, which looks like the black dot emoji (⚫), contains a massive string of invisible Unicode text, Mashable reports. Opening the black dot text clogs iMessage’s memory and completely kills the app. And unfortunately, neither force-quitting the app nor restarting the phone will reverse the damage.

    What’s worse is that the black dot of death is making the rounds because friends are using it to prank each other. Rude!

    The black dot bug affects iOS 11.3 and the current iOS 11.4 beta seeds, according to Cult of Mac, and Apple has yet to release a fix for it. In February 2018, iPhones were plagued by a similar bug that disguised itself as a character from the Indian language Telugu. That bug not only destroyed the iMessage app, but also brought down WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and the iOS Outlook and Gmail apps.

    If I do not know the sender, or the address looks funky I delete it without opening.

    All hands on deck boys we’ve spotted the prize

    The wind’s at our back, we have the surprise

    So run out the guns boys and keep her in sight

    We can’t run away there’ll be plunder tonight

    Take up position and push up the speed

    Soon there’ll be nowhere to hide

    Pack in the powder and sharpen your steel

    As we come along broadside

    Load the cannons for the attack

    Trim the sails mates, no turning back

    Take what you can boys give nothing back

    Hoist the colors and raise the black

    Musical Blades

    Never having read Treasure Island, Dr. Who’s episode “The Curse of the Black Spot” is what came to my mind.

    Treasure Island, the mark of the black spot: She’s about to be deposed, violently if necessary. Pew=Blind Pew. Arr, I didn’t know they could do this by email.

    better mouse over it and see if you recognize the email address first. I smell a phishing attempt.

    Recommendation: If this motivates any of you to read the book, try to get an edition illustrated by N.C. Wyeth. The art is magnificent.
