Show 691 Thursday 3 April

Watch today’s show at YouTube or BlipTV.

Hi, I’m Sarah, welcome to The Daily English Show.

The third of April is The Daily English Show’s birthday. We started on Monday the 3rd of April, 2006. So we are now two years old.

So, happy birthday to us and thank you – thank you for your feedback and for your wonderful support.

And thank you to Powderlife Magazine who has just done an article about us. Obviously, they have excellent taste.

They also published one of knf’s photos – this was taken when they hiked up Yotei-zan, if you remember show #665.

But this is a local magazine, so you’re just going to have to come here and pick one up if you want to read the article. Or you could check their website, they might have the article there at some stage.

And if you do live near here, we’re going to be going to Loaf Lounge on Friday the 11th to have a few drinks to celebrate our second birthday and the 700th show which is coming up soon.


Kia Ora, in Stick News today an 18-year-old New Zealander has been convicted of international cybercrime and faces up to seven years in jail.

This 18-year-old boy is from a small town called on the Coromandel Peninsula in Aotearoa.
The New Zealand Herald reported he was homeschooled during his high school years and had no formal training in computers.
He taught himself computer programming and at some point began experimenting with malware and created his own bot code.
Police said his code is "considered by international cybercrime investigators to be among the most advanced bot programming encountered".
In February 2006, the Kiwi boy helped attack a computer server at the University of Pennsylvania and cause thousands of dollars of damage.
He was tracked down after an FBI investigation and has now pleaded guilty to six charges including dishonest use of a computer, damaging a computer system and possessing software for committing crime.

And that was Stick News for Thursday 3rd of April.

The word malware comes from the words malicious and software.
