A couple of recent emails commenting on pop-up ads here let me know it's probably a good time to post a reminder about scumware/spyware, since there aren't actually any pop-ups running here. If you aren't aware, one of the joys of the modern internet is finding that somewhere along the way you have been given the gift of some software that will pop up banners over the sites you visit, among other undesired behaviors. The easy solution to this is to run Ad-aware from Lavasoft, a handy bit of software that roots out and eradicates such software. How prevalent is this problem? Running the latest version of Ad-aware revealed no fewer than 17 spyware components on my own system (if you count wonky cookies) that needed cleaning up since the last time I did such a check, which was not that long ago. Yeesh.
