The other side of legality.

Not so long ago a certain USENET group run by the relatives and victims of child porn used to post a list of (mostly) Russian child porn sites, they kept it updated daily & (if U wanted) you could verify what that URL was up to before taking action. One very quick visit to those abomination URL's an...

So you find a URL with a WOT rating next to it, hmm! U look at the overall WOT rating, then break it down into the sub-groups, from trust to bugs to safety. Now U want to throw your 10-cents in, so you do what? Most copy & paste the URL into the www.mywot URL evaluation window, run the URL, see what...

Dragons & Snakes in U.K. culture, + other Enigmas.

This is the poop I got with some neato graphics on St. George and his dragoon, or maybe it was a bloody big Gecko in the classrooms I sat in as a kid London E17. http://www.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/customs/stgeorge2.html Cute story!

R U dragon this subject out?

Having been born & raised in London, England, growing up there and hearing all about how brave St. George slew the last dragon, I think he may have tried for Nessie too had it not been for a bunch of very protective kilted Scots who could see money to be made in a monster that lives in a loch. Just ...

McAfee Monopoly links with IT/Media giants.

COMCAST © is one of the U.S.'s largest suppliers of cable T.V., Internet access at d/l speeds up to 22MB/sec (!), and digital phone services. They are NOT cheap and hold a monopoly in many areas having forced the local competition out. I would like 22meg DSL speeds, but not thru comcast.com for $99/...

StopZilla.

Tried it, & it IS bad news! 3 of my A/V progs pegged it as hi-threat malware during their 1st sweeps thru it & all the other places it plonks a file/dependency outside Prog-Files. Even the install file showed hot!
Managed to rid myself of it in XP safe mode and regedit.
Kill the Zilla!

Catchy Oxymoron: GREEN-Machines :-)

This sounds very noble & green is the in-thing everyone wants from a petro/hydro-carbon/organophosphate polluted world. Selling your users on a green way of life is fine. But to address making the WWW green is a misleading statement. U draw power from your grid to run your computer through servers w...
