None! Because I haven't looked. ;D
I confess, up until now I hadn't thought to differentiate.  :-[

Trend's Housecall is also the only on-line scanner that you don't have to use IE or activeX as you can use Firefox or Opera browsers with JAVA.

Australian researcher finds way to make broadband 100 times faster.
It would be good when this become a piece of software that we can download and use.
Or when the companies start to use it as a technology. Until there, it's a dream. Thanks Bob.

Lets hope he could do the same for dial-up seems so as it is about improving line quality.

Quote
The research could essentially benefit any network infrastructure based on copper lines and goes to prove that, while the next generation of Internet may be some years away, much work can be done to improve the capacity that we already have in place.

Being 9Km of copper cable from the exchange anything to clean up interference would help.

Leopard and Vista - More alike than you might think

I really don't understand these people and why would they spread such a load of lies... Leopard simply works and Vista doesn't. How can they even compare Apples and rotten apples ?  ::)

Also have to agree with Sasha. Leopard was delayed so they could fix the remaining issues and not push it out the door. Im running it on all of my systems (except one which doesn't meet the requirements :() and can say its amazing. It really improved the performance on my Intel Core Duo system. Apple really put a lot of effort into optimizing Leopard for Multi-Core systems

Remember, I didn't write this article.
I am however one of those who's not having any problems with Vista.
I'm also not having any problems with XP   ;D

Can't speak about Leopard cause Apple doesn't make a version I can run on my computer  (Intel Core Duo system)... :'(

Even though I am sure you're happy with Vista Bob, I am also pretty sure copying huge amount of files or large size files is problem on your machine too. It's not configuration related problem, it is well known error built in OS. Even MS admitted that they made a mistake... still they're not doing regarding releasing those updates. There is a tone of other issues... I was the one who loved Windows the most... I never betrayed Windows... but Vista betrayed me, and I don't give second chance that easy.

Just one little drop in Ocean of Vista problems:
