No one knows exactly what happened there, but it's likely that Wannacry's method for figuring out if it was in the Matrix or not was to try to contact a nonexistent website.

@murph The latter. Suppose I empty out a pinball machine chassis, removing the pinball playing surface and the glass.

Then I would remove the exterior (other than the top and the door) of a small oven, and install it in the pinball machine chassis.

Perhaps instead of an oven, I should use a small microwave oven and some electric range burners on top.

Now I can cook dinner accompanied by the sound effects & lights of The Addams Family, Elvira, KISS, or whichever machine I can find.

Can I safely build an oven with range top, into a pinball machine?

@commandlinekid sorry to ask, a group of doctors have landed here from twitter. A couple of us code python but can't get the bots to mirror our medica journal's/societies twitter feeds properly which is what we need access to. How did you make yours?
