Fair number of tech/security stories lately about the Big Gatekeepers (e.g. Google Chrome, Apple App Store) changing policies to exclude/limit/neuter anti-malware apps running within their purview and I keep thinking “This is Tron. This is literally half the plot from Tron. Dillinger wants to keep Alan’s tron program from acting as third-party security; he wants the MCP to be the sole source of truth.”

(We didn’t even smoke pot* but boy-howdy did we have a lot of Deep Thoughts about that movie in the very wee hours, in school.)

Anyway you can keep The Dude; I always preferred the Scarecrow.
