Out of the Blue

Happy 03/03/03 (or if you prefer to write it in the European method, 03/03/03). I think I managed to track down the source of my soaring CPU usage, it seems the "auto-protect" function of Norton Antivirus 2003 was bogging things down, especially when collecting mail, which turned Outlook from being a system piglet into full-blown system hog. I've got NAV's auto-protect turned off now, but still have email scanning turned on, so I guess I'm protected against most virus intrusions, but I guess if I can't get NAV's behavior under control I'll have to start exploring alternatives.

Frans P. de Vries = Mike Martinez.

I'm sure of it.

No question about it.

Maybe it's time to burst that bubble (numerous others have made similar suggestions over the past half year): there's a big difference between rounding up real-world/technology/etc. links like Mike does so tirelessly, and collecting and posting gaming news which I did during my term as editor on this here site.

I concur with Starsky.

Oh boy, was that ever out of date. Now you left me with no choice but to update that stuff.
