This is just about the lamest article on any form of programming that I
have ever read. 
His code is not self replicating (but it might be able to load something
that is), it requires misdirection and operator action, and is a Trojan.
In addition, he wrote it apparently to a standing challenge that
requires writing a file to /etc, which he did not do, nor did he show
even "high level pseudo code" for that operation.

I won't add further flames here, but come on, this is just flame bait,
and I bit... but don't expect further discussion from me.
