  2. Au, is it possible, is it in any way a doable thing, can you in any way
    post something that isn't a diatribe against MS? Haven't you caught the
    drift that your every post dressing down Bill Gates isn't holding the
    attention of the world? For Christ's sake, post something once in a
    great while that might make others think you aren't a one note drummer
    and you have something to say. C'mon, do it for Linus.

    Well, my dear Roger, I have in fact posted numerous newstidbits that have
    nothing to do with MS. For instance, I recently posted a YouTube clip
    showing an amazing 3D desktop available to PCs.
    Besides your objections, I have not detected any "drift" from anyone with
    regard these posts. Unless, of course, you and a handful of other
    squeaky-wheels consider yourselves to represent the "world".
    I'll think about it, but for as long as the net continues to maintain its
    freedom of speech I'll continue to post what I believe is beneficial in the
    public interest.
    Uhm, I honestly don't think that Linus really cares about what I post... or
    what ails you.

    Okay, fair enough. At least you called me "dear". Best offer I've had
    all day.

    Apple Patches 25 More OS X Vulnerabilities Severity: High
    19 April, 2007

    Summary:
    Today, Apple released a security update fixing 25 security issues in
    software packages that ship as part of OS X, including fetchmail,
    kerberos, and ftpd. An attacker exploiting the worst of these security
    issues could execute code on your Mac, possibly gaining full control of
    your computer. If you manage OS X 10.3.9 or 10.4.9 computers, you should
    download, test, and install the appropriate Apple security update as soon
    as possible.

    LOL, we always test before install, but most of us understand that what it
    means is that you test them on a non-production system before pushing to a
    production system.

    If you don't have a QA system you can MAKE A FULL BACKUP and then test the
    patches....

    Ah, i see, you were talking to those who "manage OS X ..."

    You install the patches on a test machine or a few, then beat them up to
    see if the patches don't break installed "corporate" applications. The
    last thing you need is the "kerberos" patch breaking the custom coded
    in-house payroll time-entry application.

    THEN you "deploy the updates" and find out something still breaks.....
