Gentlemen, you will always remember this as the day you almost infected... Captain Frost.
Iridium (MacBook Pro Mid-2012) – 2.7 GHz i7 3820QM / 16GB RAM / 4TB Samsung 860 Pro / GeForce GT 650M 1GB
Antimony (PowerBook G4 2001) – 1.0 GHz PPC 7455 / 1GB RAM / 512GB Micron M600 / Radeon 9000 64MB
When there's a multiplayer version, I'm going to be on Frost's team. Well, except he doesn't seem to actually need a team...I mean, what's the point? "Hey look, it's Frost and His Merry Gang of Useless Hangers-On!" Or something.

I couldn't be bothered though. There is nothing here worth stealing unless they want my various writings that so far only my mom could and does love. I do normally transmit these precious writings in encrypted form lest they fall into the wrong hands. I also keep them in an encrypted disk image with a password I struggle with myself sometimes.
They will never be able to brute force "stupid" anyway.
