Stuff I Just Gotta Share..

Archive for March, 2007

As I earn a living from the internet, keeping my pc’s safe from atacks is a pretty high priority for me, and has been for many years. In fact I run a couple of websites dedicated to the subject.

For years I’ve used ZoneAlarm (www.zone-alarm.co.uk) firewall software which has never let me down, but I also have another level of security that is above and beyond the normal anti virus and firewall software most people use.

It’s called Process Guard (www.processguard.com) and it works by warning you if any program tries to make changes to your system without your permission.

whilst on the subject, my favorite anti virus system is Kapersky (www.kaspersky.co.uk).

Portability

hmm, seems like it’s been a wile since I’ve made a post, but I guess that’s because I’ve been enjoying some of the best bits of life, imho, I’ve just had a weeks skiing in the Alps with my kids, it doesn’t get much better than that.

especially since we had fresh snow, and some good sunshine to ski in for a few days.

I even managed to get some work done, the hotel had an internet connection (I checked before going), so I took along my trusty little IBM X40 laptop.

Now I’ve had quite a few laptops over the years, from desktop replacements that weighed too much to really be sconsidered “portable”, to a sony Viao sub notebook that was extremely portable, but lacked a bit in the processing power department.
