Windows Vista hacks---don't do it!

(From Computer World)

If you've been using one of two common hacks to run Windows Vista without going through activation, Microsoft has you in its cross-hairs. It's rolling out patches, through Vista SP1 and Windows Update, that will recognize those hacks on your PC. That's the bad news. The good news is that the much-reviled Windows Geniune Advantage continues to get weaker, as I'll show you in a series of screenshots.

Setting up a Wireless Network at home

Well....this post is not actually about setting up a Wifi network, but it is about how much trouble I am currently having with my connection. Here are the details:

Linksys wireless router
2 Dell PCs :
1 connected to the router by ethernet cable
the other a wireless USB adapter, also by Linksys

Of course, the PC connecte by cable is working (or Iwould not be typing this post)...
The 2nd PC has been offline for a few months....I installed the USB wireless driver, configured a WPA2 Personal connection (more on connection types later)

The wireless adapter connects to the router OK....but 5 seconds later....the connection drops. That is what has been happening now for the past 4 hours!!!!

I got tired of playing with it so I will try again tomorrow....oh well, that is why I love the IT field...its always interesting and exciting!
Check out the new poll. There are many web browsers out there...but only a few are used widespread across the internet. Which one do you use most? I recently started using Firefox because it is supposedly more secure than Internet Explorer....

This is most likely true due to the fact that the majority still use IE.....give Firefox a few more years and I'm sure it will be hacked into as much as IE.

Anyway, here is a list the browsers I know of:

Internet Explorer
Mozilla Firefox
Safari (used by Apple Mac OS)


This is my first blog! I look forward to making this blog one of the best places for you to find answers to your questions relating to everything that is IT (that is.....Information Technology).

Stay tuned......
