While searching for something else I stumbled across this old post I had submitted to Matrix back in 2005. It was in a thread talking about "Battles In Normandy" (BIN) and "Gates of Troy" and issues with Spyware and whether Matrix was using spyware on its servers yada yada yada.

10 signs that Matrix has installed Spyware

1. You have this sudden urge to watch Windows loading.
2. Your Recycle BIN is moved to the BOCAGE folder.
3. Your Mouse.exe is renamed to MAUS.exe and the cursor cannot cross any European bridge.
4. When you log into microsoft.com all references to Bill Gates appear as Troy Gates.
5. Your wife won't use the computer anymore.
6. When running SETUP your computer asks if you want the default calendar to be Modern, WWII or Ancient.
7. All calendar reminders appear with the heading "Time on Target".
8. The mouse sensitivity setting is changed to read "Ramming Speed".
9. Network Neighborhood is changed to read "PBEM players currently online".
10. When you load any spyware detectors they come up with a message "For me the war is over" and then exit.


("Network Neighborhood"? Good grief - that's showing my age!)

11) When you open your browser it takes you to their store home page.

12) When you start a grand strategy game it takes 7 years to load. (Sorry Steve)

13) When your user name has been changed to Colonel

14) When your music playlists only have military marches by John Phillips Sousa

Then there is no spyware from matrix on my computer because it plays "Flight of the Valkyries" by Wagner.


First verse to "Flight of the Valkyries"

Flying in dark skies.
Flashing our fat thighs.
Picking up dead guys.

Yah ta ho!
