I'm not sure how tech-savvy my readership tends to be, but there's a Post up on CNet
about "gaping holes" in Internet Explorer's security. Put simply, there are
several known vulnerabilities in all the latest versions of IE (even
if you're fully patched) which hackers are actively using, and what's
more there's no fix on the way. That is, tomorrow is Microsoft's "Patch
Tuesday," when they release all the bug fixes in everything Windows, and
there's apparently nothing for Internet Explorer.

If you haven't already, check out Firefox.
It's not perfect, but it's a lot safer.

  • Saw Iron Man on Thursday. It was awesome, with my only complains coming in the last 5 minutes or so of the movie.
  • Drove the majority of my family to the airport on Friday morning. Spent the rest of the weekend hanging out with my brother Josh.
  • Went up to [livejournal.com profile] dreamerdevie's place on Friday night and played Arkham Horror, which was lots of fun (even if it did take forever to play). The game needs better ways of getting money, I think...
  • Laughed so much Friday night that the next day it felt like I'd had an abs workout.
  • Went to Elizabeth Nettle's place on Saturday for a cookout and had a load of fun. We watched Clue.
  • Met a girl, Joan, at Elizabeth's. She laughed nearly as much as I do.
  • Saw Meghan at Elizabeth's.
  • Felt really old when it occurred to me that I was about three years older than everyone at Elizabeth's party. Three years isn't a big split and everyone was awesome people, but it still catches me as odd sometimes, if for no other reason than the fact that my life and my concerns are so much different from theirs.
  • Took my brothers out to dinner on Sunday before heading home. it was good spending time with Tim: is seems he's hardly ever around these days.
  • Feeling terribly lonely tonight. I'll be fine in the morning, but...
