Dickie's Quickies

Some quick notes. Seeing as how I spend a great deal of time promoting the Firefox browser, I would be remiss if I didn't note that a security flaw was reported yesterday. Unlike the IE folks, however, the Mozilla Foundation offered a fix hours later (rather than weeks, months, years). All of the info is here including links to manually apply the work around or to apply a patch.

For those of you who are P2P aficionados (I am not, but I support their cause), Shareaza 2.2 was released today. Have fun! (Warning - that's a direct link to the download).

The Painted Anvil has what they claim is the best in Classic Pin-Up and Comicbook "Girly" Art. To which I say, "Let us be the judge of that!" And I encourage readers to take their time making up their minds.

Spyware Warrior reports on a new Spyware scam. It's online and it basically uses a browser page which imitates the Windows Security Center. A pop-up comes on the screen warning that the user is infected with spyware and then lists links to 3 (and probably 4) known spyware programs. Note: that is "spyware programs"; not "anti-spyware programs". Those linked programs will install the nasty CWS spyware programs which are difficult to remove (to say the least...I've done it on 2 machines and it was hours and bloody fingers later each time).

Oh and it's World Naked Gardening Day! Have fun, kids, and mind the holly bushes. (Link is NSFW).

Is HBO's "The Sex Inspectors" too trashy?
Your chance to be heard on hot topics of the week. What's on this page? The entry titled "Is "The Sex Inspectors" too trashy? You Make the Call...," and any of the comments about it.
Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!

I have a private label site. It pretty much covers private label related stuff.

Come and check it out when you get time

You have a knack for
writing. I read about 20
blogs a day, and skim about
30 more, so I mean it! We
can all use improvement, but
you certainly are better than
most I've read.

I'm going to be starting a blog
soon, about affordable seo
(I know, it sounds strange!) but
if you don't mind, I might drop
you a line just to get a little advice.
Ok?

Thanks kindly.
