Back in the day, when computer viruses looked cool
I found this guy on YT who runs and experiments old viruses and worms on old computers (mostly on a virutal OS program). Some of them are really cool to look at, and in general I love to see this guy use some of the earliest personal computers and the viruses that plauged them. Give it a look, you know, unless you were unfortunate to experience any of these yourself. My dad doesn't admit it, but I swear I remember him losing his shit over a virus on the old '95.

His channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/danooct1?feature=watch

These are some of my favorites already:

Has he tried 1260 yet? Im curious if the new AVs can detect the old polymorphing and metamorphing viruses

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....

Searched his vids and couldn't find it, but he is fairly active, so if the virus really is an infamous incident, he's probably gonna do a vid about one day. I just think of it as a really cool history lesson. And it gives the same feeling when you see this scene:
