A new blog
I passed by Peppermint Patty's
and she mentioned another blog with a unique title Byzantine rite Calvinist
What's nice is that it's a fellow Canadian, a professor from Ontario. So drop by and say hi!
Ms and antivirus software: perpetuating the addiction
I came across this Register article
about the company's plans to perpetuate MS addiction disease. This is a sardonic term I coined and have used it for years at the Penguinsita
I'm skeptical that MS' foray into the antivirus business will stimulate product improvments from the major anti virus companies. It'll be very much like fireworks: the antivirus companies will explode very brightly and then fade away. I even wonder if Symantec
will even bring back the Norton Navigator file manager/desktop replacement that came out in the Win 95 days?
True, they won't roll over and will fight MS for their market space but what an irony. The antivirus companies have been loyal MS partner and this is the gratitude that the company pays them.
Very light to irregular blogging
Blogging will very light to irregular. I'm preparing for a trip on Wednesday. I don't know how regular my access to the net will be.
So no worries if I don't post for a while. I'll post new articles when I come back. Yet I'll try to post while I'm gone from my computer.
MS takes on spammers
I heard on the BBC that MS has taken some spammers to court because hotmail.com is severly affected by spam. No kidding! However, the fault also lies with MS because of past practices that practically invited the spammers to flood the mail service. Practices such as deactivating by default the checkbox not to pass on users' names to interested 3rd companies. The user had to go into his options and checkmark the box. Personally, it's for show. It's MS way of pretending to be concerned about spam.
Beckham s'en va a Mardid
Sense dubte Jesus Gil
esta contentíssim de les notícies que beckham s'en va a Madrid. Suposo que John
analitzarà com l'anuncia afectarà la nova predència de Laporta que prometí que passaria un contracte amb Beckham. En tot cas, la Barça s'enfosarà encara més.
