Local Paper Lets Dumbass N00b Write Tech Article

Anyone who thinks her DSL runs at 100Mbps, and should be physically disconnected when the PC's off, does not deserve to write an infotech article in a major broadsheet of nationwide circulation.

Unfortunately, local fence-sitting ad-heavy no-news dead-tree rag Manila Bulletin disagrees. They let Peachy Limpin write exactly that in a supposed infotech article.

Then again, this is from a newspaper whose headline one All Saints’ Day was “People Visit Graves of Dead Today”.

wow, harsh :)

No not harsh at all. For a major broadsheet to publish such garbage is inexcuseable.

I had posted my thoughts of this in http://www.technopinoy.com.

"it would be wise to disconnect from the Internet and turn off the switch after use because even if the PC is off and the connection is not, malicious software can still creep into your PC’s system."
