    Now I'm curious, even if people don't have a commercial firewall, why at the minimum do they not turn on the filter driver that is supplied with w2k and I think XP has one 2? Just deny all ports, and why does microsoft never mention it? Jeez, it's better than nothing.

    Because firewalls and anti-virus programs are for the same kind of wimps that tell you to wear a seatbelt and to wear a helmet when riding a motor cycle and to use tongs to handle a red hot poker.

    Yeh, funny

    If U ride your bike without a helmet on a crazy speed - ok that is your case, but if U have a passanger with U, U need to take some care about him.
    So, If this is your's personal computer - OK, but other case - servers. Providers must care about a safety for their user's data.

    In this case, I think, reasons are - sloppiness, incompetence, ... .

    Ruh Roh. I came in at 10PM looked out onto the balcony and grabbed my camera:

    These are all cubs. They just sat and stared at me.

    Not very good pictures through a dirty window with a flash but what the hey.

    Can any of you guys/gals recommend a good (free) popup blocker for IE/W2k. I have one but it seems like a new breed of windows for the sites I visit isn't being blocked...I'm not interested in downloading mozilla or anything like that Just a freeware/shareware prog for IE/w2k.

    eg: (subscribe ad window inside of page)

    Have you been surfing those free/sponsored porn sites where there's 3 ads(or 5) popping up everytime you click a link within the site???!!!

    Anyway, you can learn lots of things from ads, such as updating yourself on what new products/services there is etc.

    Suppose there's an ad which goes :

    Free hot XXX photos of women for you! Download the 4 MB ZIP file with 200 optimized photos now!
