  • Internet Explorer Patch Re-Released

    Yesterday, Microsoft re-released security bulletin MS06-042 because the original release introduced a buffer overflow condition for some customers. Everyone is advised to get the new update, because the buffer overflow is exploitable.  Just one example of the cure being at least as bad as the disease, if not worse. To top it off, ...

  • Forrester Research on Blogging Tools

    Forrester Research has recently completed a study on Blogging tools, where they rated products such as WordPress, TypePad and CommunityServer. CommunityServer came away with a decent rating, with the only complaint that the content management and workflow tools are weak.   I'd also include the need for better skinning and customization ...

  • Playing in the sandbox

    I've been testing out a new utility (new to me, at least) at home called Sandboxie. It's basically a tool that allows you to run various applications in an isolated fashion on your system, where they don't have direct access to the disk or the registry (they think they do, but they are being virtualized).   This allows you to capture ...

  • Adventures in Wireless Media Entertainment

    I just upgraded to v0.9.56.2 of TVersity which manages the content for my wireless media player.  Around Christmas 2005, I finally obtained a wireless media player, the D-Link DSM-320. I guess I should have looked at the TVersity site earlier, because there was a bug which would occasionally freeze my DSM-320 when playing certain video ...
