Viruses Class

I am sure some of you have heard about this university offering a Viruses class.  What do you think of it?

I agree with Rob Rosenberger (as usual):

Brent -- Great link and far better put than I could have. I agree with him and you.  It reminds me of what one of the columnist in the newspaper here said after "8 Mile"  Eminem's career was over.  Why?  Because now your "mom" likes him too.  How can that be cool?

As  Rosenberger points out, maybe we would have fewer than 80,000 viruses if we removed the mystic from "wow, you can create one" to "so can my nine year old brother."

I had a virus class once but I misplaced the source code for it.  Now I have to take a class on viruses to learn how to re-write my virus class.  Darn.
