Vitamin D and Me

I am a fan of Steve Gibson, author of the SpinRite hard drive maintenance tool and the discoverer of "spyware". His web site at http://www.grc.com contains many valuable computer security articles and other freeware goodies. He also has a weekly podcast with Leo Laporte, hosted at http://twit.tv/sn and available free.

Do You Know Who Your Kids are Texting?

So I'm settling in for the evening with my family, and I get a text message. I'll protect the sender's identification... for reasons you'll find quickly.

        404452???? : Ask mariel wat was the home work in math 

I didn't know the sender, I don't have homework, and I certainly didn't know any Mariel. I figured I might as well try and figure out the real scoop here.

Apparently this was interpreted as "type that again" rather than "what in the world are you talking about?"
