San Francisco techies are hiring this Wiccan witch to protect their computers from viruses and offices from evil spirits - Business Insider India

Most people want me to protect their computers from viruses and hacks," she told SF Weekly. "So I'll make charms for them. I like to use flora." And when there are problems in office hardware, Talley turns to "Jet," a black stone that serves to block energy. In extreme cases, she casts protection spells of her own over the entire company.

She's got a great reputation....John McAfee was her mentor.

She's maybe on to something !  The SSID of our network is 'Begonia' and we have had very little in the way of nasties getting in.

 

Mind you, I also put my faith in Avast, Malwarebytes, Super A/S and Adblock, with some sensible surfing on the side.

I perform all sorts of magic on a daily basis. Primarily by turning the machines off then on again  :wizardball:  No one can explain how it works.

Then go on a coffee break.

Intel AMT makes it seem like magic to the end users, anyhow. (when no amount of friendly pop ups work) :)

Better start recording the first startup times for computers, so they can have astrological charts prepared. I foresee the new internet goldmine.

Pixie dust is my favorite.  Often a simple  "laying on of the hands" is enough to elicit exclamations and offerings of food and drink.  Sometimes a connector or a cable intermittent can hide as other faults.
