Comic Transcript

BARRY: Don’t press the F1 key.

ALEX: What?

BARRY: The F1 key… don’t press it. There’s a virus going around that does really bad things to your machine if you press the F1 key.

ALEX: What if I need to press the F1 key?

BARRY: Oh, we worked up a patch that re-binds the F1 key to another key, so pressing the other key will activate the F1 function. The boys are testing it now.

ALEX: But if you re-bind the F1 key to another key, isn’t it still doing the same thing that made it vulnerable in the first place?

(Silence.)

BARRY: Guys! Wait!

ALEX: Time for lunch.
