…make it through
You made it! You’re here! Congratulations! In case you didn’t hear, you’ve narrowly avoided Internet tragedy of apocalyptic proportions.
Although given your presence online at this time, rather than cowering somewhere in fetal position praying for the Internet gods to spare you from the wrath of DNSChanger, I assume you were either unaware of the fate you narrowly escaped or are a brave, brave soul.
This bit of malware , set in place by some hoodlums who were shut down and incarcerated in November, was set to shut down hundreds of thousands of Internet users worldwide. Yes, that’s right this media-proclaimed Internet “Doomsday” was going to affect hundreds of thousands across the globe…hundreds of thousands…just over 200,000 to be exact.
Not to downplay the tragedy that being forced off the Internet would be, not to mention the drama of dealing with your service provider in the aftermath, but hundreds of thousands just isn’t what I’m looking for in a “Doomsday.”
If you’re going to call something a “Doomsday” give me at least a million affected people, at least. Still, my delayed condolences to those affected by this Internet tragedy of minimal proportions. I only hope one day you can come to grips with the trials you’ve faced these last few hours.
