Yup.  Unfortunately, the dominant desktop platform makes it very
difficult to ensure this.  Esp when you consider how many VCR clocks
still blink 12:00.  Consider it a case study as to why security and the
Internet should not just be grafted on to an existing product that had
no concept of "them," just "us."
