    In respect of Wiggo's absence here's a bit of 'web news' LOL:

    SURPRISE SETTLEMENT EVENLY SPLITS MICROSOFT;
    ONE FIRM TO MAKE SOFTWARE, OTHER TO MAKE PATCHES

    "Under the agreement, Microsoft will no longer issue patches, which Gates said explains the recent five-day outage at Microsoft's upgrade site. "That was planned," he said. "It was a test of the Microsoft No Patch Access system. Went perfectly. No one was able to download anything.""

    Wow it actually worked!
    The question on everyones mind now - is it secure?
