- Quick blog post on MSE, which is Microsoft’s free antivirus/anti-spam tool. I sometimes boot into an XP Mode virtual PC for demos and was using AVG, but noticed that AVG 8x had more functionality than 9x, more of a downgrade than an upgrade..
- Works with all Windows 32bit based systems, no support for 64bit at present

- Micro-blogging via Twitter is way cool, you just link to any blog/site and harvest the best tweets on your chosen subject matter. It’s akin to an RSS subscription in may ways, but using tools like Tweetdeck and Twhirl from Twitter downloads you can catch-up and follow fellow Tweeters and blogs alike.
- I’m following MSL – Microsoft Learning. They are looking to garner some exam beta testers. I suggested they think about using Twitter as a platform for this, perhaps a Yammer group would be better as I don’t think you can have a private channel on Twitter

I wonder when Spotify will have a DAB’s channel, or work with say BBC Radio1 – seems a logical path to me. DJ’s should leverage this social aspect of sharing and delivery

- Freak weather in the USA and Philippines is raising concerns amongst scientists, government and military officials about the fallout should the arctic ice caps melt completely. Policy makers in the USA, both Republican and Democrats.. are meeting to discuss how they might turn around the massive destruction of the polar ice caps and glaciers by injecting an aerosol like artificial cloud (sic) into the upper atmosphere by employing military jets or a mile high tower (sic) at a cost of circa $7 billion per annum
- On further reading up on MSNBC, there is grave concern that we are entering a run-away-train situation with the ice caps melting entirely in the next 5-10 years (sic). The question remains what if anything can we do to reverse the unexpected accelerated ice-melt that is now being witnessed
- It’s interesting that since global warming was initially reported that no news coverage is now being given to this serious situation.. it’s as though the news organisations have been told to zip-it and not fan public concern – read more:
