Protect your PC ... maybe [Aug. 17th, 2004|02:17 pm]
Peter Sheil
As of Wednesday Microsoft will be shipping Windows XP SP2 from their update site - you may even get it downloaded without having to do anything if you've set up your system to do so (a mistake in my opinion).

Here is the article on the BBC's site about it
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/3571110.stm

... and here is the Microsoft knowledge base article including all the programs which will stop working when you install SP2.

Also see http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=884130 (thanks Tom).

Peace

The icon on the original post and this comment. It's me in an olympics T-shirt my sister got me when she was there one (or was it two) year(s) ago.

Ahhh I see. Nice one.

I want to get a T-shirt from 1980 Olimpics in Moscow. :-)

I went on google.co.uk with the search string "olympics +moscow +1980 +T-shirt" and got 2200 odd entries - the initial bunch seemed to be e-bay stuff. Maybe that would help?
