And here's a nice open-source podcast aggregator called "Juice"  :)

Allow me to ask something, how many of you have paid for the current version of office you are running? I know a lot of people say they wont upgrade because the price is too high, but I am just curious how many have paid for their CURRENT version?

I paid (actually my parents paid) for my Office 2003 Pro Academic version and I got rid of it for Office 2007 Beta 2 when it went public.  :D

Office 2007 rocks!  IMO, it focuses on down-to-earth productivity. I almost tried to migrate to StarOffice before Office 2007 came out because I'm always in favor of open standard. But StarOffice just can't compete with Office 2007, sad though.

The best IT-related podcast I've listened so far... :Thmbsup:

Buzz Out Loud (affectionately abbreviated "BOL" by fans and known by their tagline as "the podcast of indeterminate length" or "CNET's podcast of indeterminate length") is a daily podcast produced by CNET. The show stars CNET editors Tom Merritt, "the segue king" and Molly Wood, "queen of the rant." It is produced by Veronica Belmont, who is now a regular contributor to the podcast. In its public debut on April 29, 2005, the show promised to deliver 5-or-so minutes of Tom & Molly's take on tech news every second day, but has evolved into 30 minutes of tech-related banter and commentary on a daily basis.

I use symantec antivirus corporate edition, and while it is (imho) a great anti-virus, its liveupdate definitions are only posted every few days. I do know that symantec posts daily updates (manually downloadable executables). What I would like is an app that will load

and scan for the executable link, download the file, run it, and delete the file, all automatically. Is this possible? Sounds like a perfect AHK script :) Perhaps even have an option to configure how often (since symantec posts multiple updates per day).

I don't think the symantec antivirus corporate edition is good enough for your security. Back in my old university, around 80% of all students used it since it was a legal free download from the school website, and it updates itself daily and automatically from fast intranet school servers. However there were always many complains about the anti-virus - it simply didn't provide any effective protection in many many virus cases, the viruses just went through the shield and you wouldn't suspect it until you got Ad/porn pop-ups, a hijacked browser or BSOD, etc.

Fortunately, the school board decided to provide Kaspersky a couple of months ago, AFAIK.

I always volunteer to help virus victims if I can, and I did helped a lot of people (mostly my school mates), and from my experience, I'd prefer to say if you are using a Symantec anti-virus product and are contented with it - please think twice, especially if you just have a Symantec anti-virus working without any anti-spyware program.

More than 95% of the computers that had symantec antivirus corporate edition installed (and mostly updated) that I have helped were infected by 10+ bad stuff (be it a virus, a trojan or spyware, etc. Unwanted Cookies NOT included)

The anti-virus program won't give you a warning message never means your system is safe.  8)

I used to use Mcafee Antivirus Enterprise 8.0i + Anti-Spyware Module 8.0 alone and the week before last I was infected by Malwarepipe (the most nasty malware I have ever got) and other 395 spyware (as reported). All Mcafee told me was that system infected by Puper (trojan) and nothing else. My Ad-aware SE free anti-spyware only reported a dozen cookies after a full system-scan.

And their definitions were ALL up-to-the-minute!  :o

I tried Spyware Doctor 3.8 after that and it reported 396 spyware and I instantly paid the company to get rid of all these nasty stuff for me.   :up:

Before that I suffered from fake "critical system error" and "malware infection detected" pop-ups every 10 seconds and there were Ad/Porn pop-ups every 10 minutes or so. I couldn't even bring my laptop to school for that reason.  >:(

I'm currently with Mcafee Antivirus Enterprise 8.0i + Anti-Spyware Module 8.0 and Spyware Doctor 3.8
