Dulce et Decorum Est - Wilfred Owen - an excerpt



If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood

Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,

Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud

Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,

My friend, you would not tell with such high zest

To children ardent for some desperate glory,

The old Lie; Dulce et Decorum est

Pro patria mori.



Owen's poem Dulce et Decorum Est, written during the First World War, was published posthumously in 1920. It brings vividly to life the desperate human misery of warfare, condemning and raging against the "lie" that war is noble. Owen served on the front line in the Manchester Regiment, suffering severe shell shock, and was killed in action on November 4 1918. His mother was informed of his death on Armistice Day, seven days later.

Do you still have the Windows 7 installation DVD? If you do you can use that to boot the computer into startup repair. A good tutorial in respect of this process may be found at:

This vulnerability (CVE-2011-0609) could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. There are reports that this vulnerability is being exploited in the wild in targeted attacks via a Flash (.swf) file embedded in a Microsoft Excel (.xls) file delivered as an email attachment. At this time, Adobe is not aware of attacks targeting Adobe Reader and Acrobat. Adobe Reader X Protected Mode mitigations would prevent an exploit of this kind from executing.

Please refer to the advisory for full details

Hi Ruth,

Don't assume that the computer is "fixed", these things are pernicious and we need to follow a tried and tested methodology to get you cleaned up. Corrine is the best but we need your help:

  • Please follow the instructions posted above and make sure that you post the requested logs in your next reply.
  • Do not take any action to resolve the issues that may be suggested on any other site, until you get the all clear in this thread - we need to be sure that the actions suggested here have not been compromised by other advice.

Thanks,

You may have seen this place recently, it has been dumbed down for residents of the USA but even they won't escape it. Where is this building?

Temmu,

Well done, I thought that I was being a bit cryptic but you saw through me. Another good link for this project is the following:

goodness, there are lots of beautiful women in iceland!

That is so true .... mind that you are not dazzled by that beauty (a phenomenon which normally manifests itself in being the owner of a Viking pattern jumper that you can't remember purchasing; the other route to pullover possession involves Brennivin and a tell-tale headache!).

Where to next?

But of course, it's about time that you revisited my homeland. Now, can you narrow it down to a specific location?
