As Sarah said
Excel? Pah, you've asked for it & you got it!
Most of you obviously can't walk straight, your knees are so jerked.

Income Tax is a silly form of taxation anyway. There, lets not beat about the bush. It's complicated, invasive and costly. Scrap it & put 5% on VAT, or whatever the % that would be needed to make up for the *net* shortfall.
I'm not really all that keen on VAT (sales / purchase tax in disguise), but I am keen on anything that will cut some daftness & huge expense from the way we collect tax.
"The trojan can install itself as an IME, then it kills any running antivirus processes and deletes the installed antivirus executable files. The original executable file of this trojan disguises itself as an antivirus update package."
Which product/s? Any/all or specific vendors'?
Paris 'cos she's brand aware ....
I use M$ because:
Word is a good wordprocessor;
Excel is a good spreadsheet;
Windows games - they rock.
I have AVG (free) & Online Armor (free).
Never had a virus, trojan, worm or root-kit.
Not entirely true: had virus 'Brain' back in the MS-Dos days.
M$ works, looks good & allows me to run what I want.
Only the first can be said of Linux.
Paris, because she .... out-ticks Linux.
How about the 'long tail', where Google has been out-performing Bing? Small, slow sites that have seemingly generated good revenue for Google:
"For Microsoft, focusing on the head instead of the "long tail" meant that it returned popular queries but failed to satisfy less common queries. The long tail of queries ended up yielding more sizable traffic and therefore more money for Google over the last 11-plus years."
Paris because she wouldn't forget any kind of tail, would she?
Finance Act, part 2, 1976 -- Dennis Healey decreed that agencies might be responsible for contractors' tax -- so the agencies insisted on contractors using limited companies. They were all self-employed before that: Schedule D. Huge difference in that suddenly NI contributions (both sides) were cranked right up.
Nice for the accountancy profession, tho'.
Paris because she wouldn't charge NI, would she?
What an odd thing to have happened!
Arnie will get into hot water this time, 'for sure.'
Negative publicity isn't always good publicity.
Knowing the American centre to be quite religious, it's not clever.
Even allowing for it being California an' all.
Really, he should check his letters more!
I work on 2nd line support & have also worked on 3rd.
The problem with the helpdesk is lack of planned continuity.
Bright joiners soon get promoted or leave.
The remainder aren't bright and lack experience (yes, I mean that: they have no experience in other areas of IT than helpdesk work.)
I think the solution is to recruit much older people on the basis that they'll be staying until retirement: no promotion, but that should not mean no pay increases.
They'd have to have their expertise & people skills monitored & improved as a matter of course - continually.
Can't be all that hard.
