My polytechnic appeared in the news. This time, the tabloid news. It turns out that some of my polytechnic’s student servers have been infected with virus. Not sure which virus. [Maybe it's latest talk - "Witty", but then it's a worm not a virus.]
4 schools [or was it 3?] out of 7 schools in my polytechnic have their students affected. Affect parties see nothing in their student storage drive. Half of my school, School of Chemical and Life Sciences (CLS), is infected with virus.
[If you are confused here, several schools made up a polytechnic.]
Interesting enough, students of my school (CLS) with admission numbers being an even number (i.e. numbers ending with even digits and ’0′) got the virus. A total of 14 thousand people are probably screaming in a variety of vulgarities. Some people even lost their final year projects. [There may be a back up student storage drive in the polytechnic.]
Are they lucky or what? They? Yeah, I have one of those odd numbered admission numbers, so I ain’t affected.
I never trust the school computer anyway. I mean it’s just a school computer, I always store my important things in removable ware after saving it in the school’s computer. I can’t believe those idiots stored it entire project in the polytechnic’s networked storage space.
I returned home and saw Lisa’s nickname appended with a string of text being – Damn SP computers…cause my M: to be removed…CURSE THEM ALL! ! ! !. SP is the abbreviation of Singapore Polytechnic (my polytechnic) and M: refers to the networked folder mapped onto a drive letter ‘M’.
But Lisa didn’t lose anything important, what the hell is she so upset about? She merely lost all his visual basic tutorials. I recall backing up my entire student storage space less than 2 weeks ago, but the virus didn’t find me. Even if I hadn’t back it up, I don’t give a damn with all my files is gone, because I have nothing important in the polytechnic.
Just let this be a reminder for all to make regular back ups in case of a hardware failure or a virus infection.
