  1. Yahoo! paid email services offers disposable email addresses also, don't now th e details bu I suspect it is similar.
  2. For anyone who has used Forte Agent to read news you will probably realy like the Pimp Ass News Reader (PAN). Originally for Linux it also works on Windows with the addidtion of GTK libraries (linked via their site), and also with OS X using FINK and apples X11 display server.
  3. Yeh knoppix is pretty awesome hardware polling in Linux is unrivaled so I think a Knopix cd would be invaluable for trouble shooting and if you can find a friendly place a great thing to do with a shared pc. Knoppix can be bloated for older computer but there are many alternatives notably thebootable business card Gentoo.org says they paln to be breating some new life into cygwin, also doing a Mac OS X ports project. I read a thread elswhere about a windows software program damaging important file. Man I don't envy you guys. For all the user unfriendliness-ness of Linux I sure am happy that all I have to do to update my computer is type:emerge -u worldbefore I go to bed and then the next day 10 minutes of being guided through a side by side comparison of modified configuration files.
  4. Dont access banking and credit card accounts at a public access computer. Bad bad bad
  5. If you use Mac OS X get Fink Fink If you have ever used a FreeBSD ports system or Debians ap-get/dselect, Gentoo emerge etc. You will find Fink to be one of the least known and most utilitarian additions to your Mac. If you aren't familiar with the above get fink and try it. It may seem arcane at first but once you get used to it you will be amazed with its simplicity and sophistication. For PC users I think that Gentoo Linux is working on a port of their emerge software managment system that will work with Cygwin. Should provide similar utility.
  6. I always like to think of friendliness as K-Y Jelly. Apply it generously to the daily grind of social intercourse, and surprise suprise, fewer tears. AG
