Out of the Blue

After a stretch where the older version was not updated as work progressed on the update, the Lavasoft Website now carries a new version 6 of Ad Aware (thanks MajorGeeks). The new version of what's become an indispensable internet utility (which finds and eliminates spyware and scumware) could not come at a better time for me, as I have recently been afflicted by a bout of self-spawning pop-ups... I can only hope the 40-some suspicious items it found on my computer included the source of this bother so it can be eliminated. Yeesh.

Links of the Day: Dream Portal. Thanks Sharon. No, I'm not coming with you.

I keep getting this dialog box apparently from "ads.x10.com" prompting me to enter a user name and password. It comes up occasionally whenever I load Blue's News, starting today. I hit cancel, and it loads the page.

Kind of odd to password protect an advertisement, I think.
