  • There are a few pages in today's Toronto Globe and Mail devoted to viruses and computer security. I think that the newspaper was waiting for the next big virus to strike to publish a pull-out section like this. There is no mention at all of gener…

  • Update....The virus got through to my PC at work today. Although our Mircosoft-trained IT people are not the greatest, they have at least been good in insulating us from the virus plague...until this one. We have over 2,000 employees and apparentl…
  • Thanks to hyperb0le, torifile, Paul and others for their responses to my earlier questions. I feel somewhat more justified in my belief in OS X security. On the other hand, chych?s response indicates some reason still to worry (although my own mach…
  • Quote: Originally posted by drewprops Will you two feel like grown-ups if you have higher post counts? Wait, let me add something. I have watched both of these neophyte AI members clatter through forum after forum, thread after thread, like dr…
  • Quote: Originally posted by curiousuburb tried reading these? Thanks. I just scanned some of the more promising threads in your 'search' link. However, I did not see very much explaining why OS X is robust against viruses, aside from the fa…
  • Quote: Originally posted by johnq Unfortunately an ad from Apple touting/bragging about lack of viruses would attract more hackers than you could shake a stick at, and if you think that Macs can't be hacked if there are enough resources/hacker ma…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Moogs This is ugly. I can't imagine they're all partisan wankers. What I don't like about that article is that is gives no elaboration on anything. It just keeps saying over and over "we don't think he's fit, w…
  • Quote: Originally posted by msantti The G5 is all sex baby. Actually, I think exactly the opposite. To me, it looks like "all work and no play". The marketers wanted something that looked like a serious machine, to counter Apple?s imag…
  • Quote: Originally posted by HOM [...] Boy, I do miss the old look. Back when computing was fun, exciting, and everything was new. It certainly takes me back to the first computers I worked on. But, aside from general nostalgia for t…
  • Quote: Originally posted by InactionMan How odd that you asked. It got creamed by a car last night. I went to the grocery to but some well, food. And I saw its battered corpse on the road about four houses down. Sad really, I think she had ju…
  • Quote: Originally posted by InactionMan I cannot adequately express my rage towards the Leafs right now. Really, that game was worse than the Conference Semi-Final they played against Jersey a few years back when they only got six shots on night…
  • I find the G5 to be pretty ugly, to be honest. I would very gladly have one, but I would hide the box under the desk, or in an appropriate custom slot.
  • TO is back in it. Whether or not they win the big one - an event that I would support, despite their victory over the home team - I really, really hope that the Leafs beat the Flyers, a team that I hated ever since those thugs beat the Bruins to win…
  • Overall, I think that this is good news. From an immediate, humanitarian point of view, it is good news if it leads to an end to the bombing and sniper fire and the introduction of much needed food and medicine into the city. From an inter…
  • The fact that political mileage can be made on the basis a person, allegedly, ?looks French? or speaks a language other than English says quite a bit about conservative politics in the United States. This is xenophobia and is very offensive. The f…
  • Quote: Originally posted by quagmire The poll has other( please specify). That would count as other. That's what I already did, of course, quaggy. But certainly it deserves a category of its own.
  • Whatever his original ego-inspired thinking, I cannot believe that Blair has thought, for some time now, that he has any substantive influence with the hard-line neo-cons in the Bush administration. I rather believe that the real reason for Blair?s…
