The following is an exercise designed to create a visual rendering of the recently discovered, horribly destructive, computer virus known as "FRED".
FRED is the sixth virus found in the new family of CRYSTALLINE viruses. This type of virus attacks the crystalline structure of your microchip. They virtually self-replicate directly onto the chips in your computer with the result being, over time, the mutilation of all saved data. It happens so slowly that you are almost unaware anything is wrong, until it is too late.
Computer analysts are working around the clock to identify and diffuse these "virtual data bombs." As an informed individual, we felt you would be interested in viewing the basic structure of these techno-crystal demons.
Follow the steps outlined below, and you will have the basic structure before your eyes.

direction very carefully.
Check off each instruction as you complete it.
At this point, you should be looking at a fairly good blueprint of this menacing virus.
It's crystaline form includes some EXTREMELY sharp, yet perfectly symmetrical spikes.
