History of Virii

I’ve passed through waxy.org before, but haven’t really stuck with it for some reason. After seeing the last upcoming.org project they put together, I decided to read further, and found this great post about what ended up being, unfortunately, the first computer virus. WAYYYY back when UNIVAC was the machine to have (and no, most didn’t have one for obvious reasons), when John Walker was trying to come up with a new way to move game files around from machine to machine. Oops. An interesting history lesson for a Sunday, even if waxy.org did post it over a month and a half ago =)
