By the way, what is a good Free backup application?


If you want to do disk imaging, I've heard good things about Macrium Reflect FREE Edition.

U.S. Army upgrades PCs to ... Windows Vista?

My brother is in the Army. 90% of the machines they use are nettops. A celeron or Atom processor, some memory and a network card. They boot from one central server and run over the network. Slow as molasses at the south pole.

Use Spamavert Firefox addon in these cases ;)
I know you do not use Firefox, anyway...

Sure ;D
I can built an extension for that... just that I have little spare time right now: the main concept will be opening the CD drive and put the dish there, then from your USB port a cold water stream will flow... ;D
It won't be possible to run on DELL computers and Macs ;D

Windows 7 may come with a Steep Price

So far most of my predictions about Windows 7 have been right on the money.  Microsoft has scaled back the number of versions. Computer manufactures confirm they’ll have Windows7 installed on machines in time for Christmas. Unfortunately, the one thing I may have been wrong about was the price. I expected the price of Windows to come down but I was too optimistic.  The best thing going for any “I’m a PC” campaign is price yet Microsoft seems to think if Apple can gouge customers they can too.

You could install Windows 7 Ultimate RC now for free to cure your vista problems and that would give you about 10 month to save up
the money to buy the actual product when your RC Beta version expires.
