  Looking at your Instant Messenger, I use Trillian which does the same so I have AOL,Yahoo and MSN all in one screen. Its been around for a long time is very safe and stable. Alot of people here in the US office use it.

Somewhat sloppy journalism, unfortunately, in CFO Europe:

"“Microsoft will terminate support for [Windows] XP,” forecasts Chad Robinson, a senior research analyst for Connecticut-based consulting and research firm Robert Frances Group. “And this is likely to come sooner than many customers would prefer.”

In the meantime, Microsoft customers can get a sneak preview of Longhorn with Microsoft’s release of XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)."

Talk about stating the obvious, or is it really the case that senior financial executives think that software is supported by the manufacturere for ever?

And when has a service pack ever contained "a sneak preview" of an upcoming operating system? Answers in this forum, please.

The Register have done a short review of their experiences of Wireless Broadband week - it's quite interesting - especially the coffee shop which uses the same wireless network that customers connect to, to connect it's tills to their back end system !!

Really... This is interesting... and welcome. There is a lot of chaff out there and I think, that after all, Microsoft are making an effort to put things right... I will give it a run (from home), and then will let you know.

Charging a high rate (5-10) per hour in coffee shops etc is a good strategy in my opinion. People go in have a coffee at 3 and add-on the net access in preperation for their meeting/interview/whatever. It's bad business for the place to be full of people surfing and not drinkig very much. Their profit is surely in their primary market segment - coffee or whatever. Everything else is simply a nice ploy to get that little extra...

In the name of research, myself and Dan are sitting in the basement of McDonalds on the Strand right now, taking advantage of Wireless Broadband Week. It's a useful service, but I'm not sure I would be so comfortable if I knew I was paying 6 per hour right now. I don't think there is a feasible business model in charging those prices.

For all Instant messaging lovers...

This will allow you to connect to all your IM accounts (ICQ, AIM, Yahoo!, MSN) without having to run four different windows. How safe is it? Let me know...

Google have to do something about people who abuse the ranking. I am sure that the problem which just appeared will be ironed out soon. Meanwhile, there is a google desktop tool for windows machines, and it is available from google themselves, although you have to look for it in Google search!... or you can click here.

For those people who like to follow news on search engines there is an article here on the the BBC web site about a google mod.

Let's do the oldies then... my first machine was an oric-1, and I remember that (in basic), if you made any corrections to a line of code, you had to press ctrl-A and go through the whole line again in order to comit the changes. Anyone remember gosub 35000 or even fortran's doloop /continue?

One point to note on SPAM is discussed in this article: Sexual spam could spark lawsuits
it seems rather strange for an employee to claim against an employer for something such as this. However at my last company a PA in the US was threatening to sue over a joke she recieved by accident which was sexist (several people lost their jobs over that one).
