    I'm not convinced that holy water or prayer will cure computer systems of digital demons...any more than a lucky rabbit's foot will offer any better protection or help. Better get a computer tech, son....better get a real good one....(spoken to the tune of The Cruel Sea's song)

    Could be....though, the Russian military has a tradition of ritual humiliation, which I'm guessing this bit, is probably a lot more benign than boot camp humiliation might have been. It looks like Kirill's fabulously expensive wrist watch has disappeared from view again.

    Yes, Russian Orthodox has a blessing for just about everything. The wife has had them out to bless both of the homes we have built/purchased as soon as we moved in...can't say it has done any good but it made her happy and is harmless so...

    Might be useless, but it's still more than most have done to protect their systems.
