Re: Didn't folks see Aaron's smiley? (was Re: [T3] Paypal stuff)

<x-flowed>Holy MOLEY! Sorry folks, didn't mean to start a giant crapstorm! I leave my computer for a couple hours & yipes! I was, in fact, joking. I guess all this snow has made my normally dry sense of humor even drier! Either that, or e-mail is really not the place to be joking like that.

It certainly is comforting that so many people care though, yes. :)

I've been a computer tech for many years, and in fact use a password generator for all my accounts (check out this cool password generation applet - http://www.angel.net/~nic/passwdlet.html). I can confirm a couple things already stated here as well:

1) Don't click on those links just to check where they go, no. They *can* leech your info from your browser, depending on how you have your network set up & how you have your security preferences set up..
2) Not only is Firefox available for just about every OS, as Russ suggested, it is awesomely stable on everything I've used it on (Linux, FreeBSD, Windows) and is totally ready for prime time and is MUCH safer than running IE, although SP2 for XP has added many safety features for running scripts that should have been there in the first place. There are lots of plugins available even for non-windows users, including flash & acroread. I only use IE when I need to because a website isn't standards compliant. I'm using Thunderbird right now as well. Awesome application, and amazing that apps this good can be free.

Advertisement over...

Thanks again folks. I will try not to start any more false alarms. Still, it *would* be nice if there was some way to keep our e-mail addresses for the list private. That was my real question...
