Yahoo to shut down several products, including Yahoo Buzz and Traffic APIs, in the coming months as part of restructuring, the internet portal said Thursday. "Part of our organizational streamlining involves cutting our investment in underperforming or off-strategy products to put better focus on our core strengths and fund new innovation in the next year and beyond," Yahoo said in a statement. All Things Digital reported that MyBlogLog, Yahoo Picks, AltaVista, Yahoo Bookmarks, and Delicious will also be closed.

OK Bob...the $64,000 question. I won one of the AIS free keys...should I dump Kaspersky (KIS 2011) for a while and give it (AIS) a shot? I do like to compare but I'm a novice geek...still learning so I am leaning on my New Mexico neighbor for guidance!

Hello Rompin Raider
My simple reply to you is "Yes" I've been using avast! since 2003 and am now traveling all over this great country telling other why properly protecting your computer is a must and why I believe that avast! is the cornerstone of that protection.
I just returned from a 3 week speaking engagement in our neighboring state of Arizona where I presented the avast! Security Seminar to 28 clubs and almost 1300 members and the overwhelming majority of them where extremely impressed.
Remember, I only spoke to them about the benefits of using avast!5 Free.  You have an opportunity to use the AIS version which includes add-ons that aren't available in the free version. All the more reason to find out first hand what so many of us are so excited about.
When you are ready to make the change, please follow the instructions I've pass on to all the clubs I've visited regarding the proper removal of your current anti virus program:

How2RemoveYourAntiVirusProgram.html - https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B-vSic0iJgyeYTY4MGZlOWUtMTJkOS00NDNkLTgzMWUtOWZiM2NhNTE5YjRk&hl=en

Enjoy avast! 5 Internet Suit and congratulations on winning a free key.  :)

Let us know what you thing of AIS once you've made the changeover.

Thanks...I had an idea you might say that and I will do so...probably in the morning. Taking my son (home from college) to a hockey game in a few minutes (Dallas Stars). I hope you have a great Christmas and I will be back after making the switch!

Discovered a new search tool, that uses some of the popular ones and puts it into a more graphical look :)

spacetime3D.com

Since it is called spacetime, I had to search for a related subject, I am a physicist after all ;D

Donate Life Texas
https://www.donatelifetexas.org/
There is a critical shortage of organs, tissues and eyes available for donation. There are more than 96,000 patients in the United States awaiting transplantation—more than 7,000 are Texans.

Every 13 minutes, a new name is added to the national transplant waiting list. Every day, 17 people die waiting for a life-saving organ transplant.

The Glenda Dawson Donate Life – Texas Registry is the official state organ, tissue and eye donor registry.

Historically, while signing a donor card and placing the "donor" sticker on your driver license served as an important symbol of your intent, it did not place you on any official list or registry.

In 2005, Texas joined 40 other states in the country by creating its own state donor registry.

Registering to become an organ, tissue and eye donor helps ensure your wishes will be carried out after you die.

You have the power to donate life. Sign up today to become an organ, tissue and eye donor. Your generosity can save up to eight lives through organ donation and enhance another 50 through tissue donation.

As many of you know, my wife Alice received her liver transplant at Baylor Medical Center in Dallas Tx.
On April 17th, she will be celebrating her 5th birthday since receiving her gift of life.
We will again attend the annual Transplant Reunion at Baylor on April 17, 2011.

If you aren't yet an organ or tissue donor, please consider becoming one.
