Edit:
A virus can do this?! That would so ******* annoying becuase you wouldn't suspect a virus to do that. But then what if the speakers were disabled/low volume or can it be played through the computer's internal speaker?

Other symptoms of Netsky included beeping sounds on specified dates, usually in the morning hours.

So apparently YouTube has been honouring copyright requests submitted by us, even though we never submitted it. Now we've got about half a dozen complaints from people for disabling their videos.

Any simple way to get YouTube to realise someone's been impersonating the station? Or to get the videos re-added?

Solving combinational logic gates using boolean logic and de Morgan's theorems - I can solve them just a bit slow.

Yeah, boolean algebra is a bit heavy going... I did that last year.

That is the quicker way, which I'll use in the exam, if it comes up.

17. Dear secretmessages,

Unfortunately we are unable to advise you what the security checks are for security reasons.

With Google Checkout or Paypal the funds are automatically sent through to us, and then if there is a problem with the order, these funds go straight back to them.

I hope this information helps.

Kind Regards,

My Ebuyer order failed fraud checks apparently, but they won't tell me why.
