Signing up for the Microsoft security program

Microsoft on security. Snicker.

I'm in Boston for a meeting with an Alfresco customer, and happened to have a few minutes before my 9:00 meeting. I scanned for open wireless networks and found a Microsoft guest access point, and tried to log on. The response was funny on a number of different levels:

Yes, I know the legal reasons for disclaiming all responsibility. But let's just say that Microsoft's track record on security might come into play, as well. I was going to tell them that I use a Mac and so am not susceptible to all of the attacks that plague Windows users, but I figured Microsoft wouldn't appreciate this. :-)
