    What about the licensing agreement caused this response?

    Thats what happens with my PC anyway. Maybe they have got it working
    already?

  4. Is that true? Where is it written?

    The UN is too weak to handle the job. Someone should have been able to
    stop Bush in his tracks and continue the inspections. Someone should
    be able to protect our freedom when it is threatened by the
    government. Someone should have investigated the 2000 election in
    Florida.
    When you go to war against a stronger country, can you throw caution
    to the wind?

    It's the way things are, or perhaps you'd prefer anarchy with Uzis?
    It was! GWB stole the Election thanks to some partisan justices on the
    US Supreme Court, and no one really seemed to cared at the time.
    When you go to war against a stronger country, aren't you, almost by
    definition, throwing all caution to the wind to begin with?

    If everyone switches to Macs than they will build viruses and worms
    that affect Macs. The Mac is only more secure because there aren't
    enough of them to bother with. Considering the usual cluelessness of
    Mac users they should be ripe for exploting.

    And you have documentation of this? Or are you just flapping your
    lips?

    Unix variants are just as susceptible to worms and viruses as windows.
    And they have plenty of security holes. Some built right in.

    The Truth? You wouldn't know the truth if it was rammed up your ass
    and into that pimple of a brain that resides there.

    No, a liar wouldn't even acknowledge any other truth other than their
    own. And you are the one that's acting like the troll, Andy.

    Unless you can log into my box as root, you're not going to hack diddlysquat
    on Jaguar. Windows security is swiss cheese in comparison.

    Oh please. Simply put, Windows is a bigger OS, therefore, hackers
    concentrate on Windows. Many Mac users say Macs are more secure because
    they don't get hacked into. The reality is, Mac vulnerabilities aren't as
    well know, because you don't have as many people picking it apart.

    5 Steps to computer safety:
    1) Use a good quality anti-virus, and keep it up-to-date.
    2) Use a firewall. The one in XP works fine, but there are better ones out
    there.
    3) Keep Windows up-to-date. It's your choice whether or not you want the
    recommended updates, but the critical updates are just that - critical.
    4) Beware of adware and spyware. There are many programs that will help to
    protect your computer, but it's up to you to prevent it as well. Make sure
    you read the agreement of the software before you install it. It should
    tell you if it will be installing any additional programs.
    5) Be cautious of attachments. Microsoft NEVER sends out attachments via
    email. Always scan all attachments before opening them.

    Email address is fake to prevent SPAM.
    Real email address is pcyr2000 AT hotmail DOT com
    Change the obvious to the obvious.

    So now I'm to blame because you're too stupid to filter my posts from
    your view? Have you ever thought of not opening any post of mine that
    happens to sneek though your pathetic attempt to filter me?
