I think posts here are going to be fewer even than they have over the last few months. I’m now going to school full time, trying to finish my bachelor’s degree. Since I am no longer in my 20’s, I have two kids and I still work a fulltime+ job, time is of the essence.

Nothing personal. Just gotta get it done.

windows broken again…

If you are reading this on a Windows machine, I strongly suggest you check out this page on Steve Gibson’s website, www.grc.com.

There is a new vulnerability that was publicized recently, attacking the Windows Metafile format, which is used to display images. This can break your machine or cause malicious software to be installed just by visiting a website. Nasty.

This is a very important problem to fix immediately, as there are a large number of exploits out there already.

And then think about buying a Mac or using Linux.

Update: Microsoft has fixed the flaw for XP, but not for some of the older versions of Windows.  Hopefully they will figure out that not everyone upgrades…
