I'm with you on scriptwriters getting stuff wrong with computers. . . . ENHANCE! LINUX, I know that! And of course. . . virus from a Mac to an alien spaceship in 48 hours.
That said, Bones is also a show that can't even get basic geography right. There's an episode where Rock Creek Park (DC's forested answer to Central Park) is shown as a nature preserve with elephants in it. That'd be the National Zoo, dumbass. Or showing Assateague Island, MD as a forested island with a cutesy little pirate themed town on it. Nope, giant sandbar with a state and national park. The only trees are some scrub brush type things, and the only town is Chincoteague, VA, which is actually on the mainland.
Totally unrelated, I just want to punch that show in the face. Hard.
