When I opened the envelope up, I found two sticks of RAM in a plastic case.
There was no receipt or document inside — nothing to explain where it came from, or why.
I have not ordered RAM in years.
And now my brain keeps posing questions:
Why would someone do this? Why no name? Why no explanation of the source?
If it's a gift, why not include a note of explanation?
If it's a case of wrong address — why was no name placed on the envelope?
And that leads me to: Is this a really oafish & extremely clumsy attempt at gaining access to one of my machines? Could the RAM run embedded code, acting as a trojan attack vector?
But then why not just send me a USB stick badged as a promotional item?
Any ideas Slashdot?
Has this happened to any of you?"
