I figure I'll end up with lists like this again so may as well make this a series from the start.
I followed a blog trail back to these excellent Blog Commenting Guidelines
Then I stopped by BillP's excellent site and found a warning as to how much information (and misinformation) can be gleaned from logged search engine entries tied to any particular identifier. (In AOL's case it was a number.) Illustrated by this poor lady's story.
from there I followed his links to read about Windows XP Optimzing Myths
& the handyness of McAfee's SiteAdvisor
& some warnings about the proliferating Zango ads/games/ & more recently, a winamp skin
& stopbadware.org which endeavors to keep track of some of the malware out there.
& a reminder to get the most recent windows patches. These folks also note that myspace info is particularly non-secure in wifi settings. You can check on your security updates here
lest all these warnings make you want to hide...
Stumbled on some more classic free ebooks in the MS reader format
I also found a somewhat amusing photo-shopped pc vs mac ad
(which had a link to a funny ad called 'sinking' )
Thats it for now!
