This is the third time this year that Yahoo! has claimed to have
"closed/disabled" this account that was "closed" last year. Irina Torina
was told her account was closed because she moved and her Rogers account
was closed because of the move summer last year. She had linked her email to her Rogers internet service.

Hello, world! This is my Gift Wish List project!

Hello, world! This is my Gift Wish List project!

Recently I received a newsletter from notifying me of the latest version of Netbeans IDE, Netbeans v. 6.9. Over the past few years I tried Netbeans without success as my computer was either not compatible, powerful enough or I just could not make heads or tails of the software. Most of these issues were solved when I switched to openSuSE (oS) Linux. Since most of my computers are powered by oS 11.2, I have found I am able to do a lot more with my ageing computers so first I checked with YAST oS version of Windows Control Panel. oS had Netbeans v. 6.5 available for installation. I decided to install the older version on my Dell Inspiron 1501 (AMD Turion dual core) and was experimenting with Netbeans in no time.

Google researcher gives Microsoft 5 days to fix XP zero-day bug

It is really fascinating to read this article on the latest Windows XP zero-day bug. It appears to be ok for Microsoft cohorts to slam Linux and Open Source Software and paint it as insecure and buggy. But when people from the Linux/Open Source Software/Google community point out security issues with Microsoft products, we become the bad guys for doing so. Many of the security software providers, whose industry would not exist if Microsoft were to implement proper security procedures in the development of the Windows O/S, says it is ok for Windows users to wait at least a month for a patch to be developed and tested before it is made available to the user.

As a user of Netscape/Mozilla Internet Suite/Seamonkey web browser and email software since 1994, I have seen many enhancements in security, stability and features. Then came Firefox whose popularity threatened the demise of Mozilla/Seamonkey package. However, Firefox user's profile are significantly different to the Netscape/Mozilla/Seamonkey user's profile as Firefox is based originally on Mosaic while Netscape/Mozilla/Seamonkey is based on Gecko.
