The one thing I would like to see in computer products is reliability. Having tried my hand at some programming, I know how difficult it is to get there.


A new feature? No! Make it work first!

Tenth of Email Infected

Virus and worm writers suck… This stuff gets really annoying really quickly.

The latest worm picks on Microsoft SQL server. Don’t think we have many installations here. However, between 4 and 6 AM on a Sunday morning we had an average 30% utilization of our bandwith? That is down from 80 – 100% utilization yesterday afternoon. Could be people downloading music and videos, but I doubt it.

A tenth of the email I get are infected by a virus. The person that sent the email does not know they are sending the email. The person on the FROM line did not send the email and likely are getting emails with my address in the FROM line.

What can you do? Put pressure on the top people of your workplace and home ISP to have anti-virus tools placed on their email servers to protect you. This stuff is getting out of hand!

Had lunch with Cat, Dusty, Tamara, and Leti. Was very good to see them all again. Sharon was in and out since she technically was working.


Right now I am listening to the new Essential Mix with Paul Jackson. I really enjoyed last week’s with Ashley Casselle.

Oh, I seriously doubt that A Feast for Crows from the last post is the last of the series. I’ve read that George has no idea when the series will end. It is such a cash cow, how could they end it?
