Happy Inauguration Day to you, and you, and you over there. Here are a few updates on various recent topics.

First off, many thanks for all the recommendations on anti-virus software. Based on your e-mails, I decided on ESET (NOD32 is a subset). So far, I've been extremely pleased--ESET seems very powerful, it's easy to configure, and it's hassle-free.

Last week, after recommending The Prisoner, Michael Martin e-mailed and said that people outside the U.S. couldn't watch the episodes that were available online at AMC. Keller was the first to recommend Hotspot Shield, and it worked.

I've officially cut over to the new system. Zero problems in terms of installing software and transferring data from the old system, and it's a real pleasure to be driving a dragster instead of a horse and buggy.
