Re: Not so dificult to secure a PC

I've seen electricians who never turned off the juice before making changes. There's a fine line between confidence and stupidity.

And I've seen what happened when one simply assumes that the distribution breakers are always accurately labeled before nipping off the 220v drop-wiring to a heavy motor. To prove it, I've still got the insulated side-cutter pliers with the 1/4-inch hole burned through their blades that resulted from the "big blue flash". Misplacing one's confidence can be as dangerous (if not more so) as stupidity.

Browsing in harm's way and simply trusting in a couple of anti-malware programs and an OS setting or two, is misplacing one's confidence.

In my experience you never ever trust any "documentation" made by a sparky

Or "as built" markups by anyone.
