Memorial activates on 10th of April. At this time it displays a dialog box with text:
Clinton Haines Memorial Virus by Quantum/VLAD and Qark/VLAD Clinton Haines, also known as Harry McBungus, Terminator Z and Talon died of a drug overdose on his 21st birthday, April the 10th, 1997. During his time as a virus writer he wrote the No Frills family, X-Fungus, Daemon and 1984 viruses. He was a good friend to VLAD and so we write this virus in his honour. We hope it's good enough to do him justice. VLAD Remembers. Rest in Peace
Otherwise the virus just spreads.
