Time for the News

Microsoft released nine security patches on Tuesday, three of them critical, including one for Internet Explorer that was set for release last month but pulled at the last minute.

Bill Gates's reluctance to offer lower cost versions of its products is pushing developers and students into using open source, where code is freely swapped and applications readily available. Roger thinks that more openness would encourage students to learn about Windows as well as Linux before they become the IT experts of tomorrow. Microsoft, meanwhile, apparently thinks people are happy to pay to be bothered by Clippit.

It happens all the time

I've been hard at it on for a lot of the day. I stopped for a rest and when I returned an infine number of monkeys with nimble fingers had been at my php code.

Call me old fashioned but I like the bone idle style of "include files" php makes this easy. UNTIL the monkeys. A simple header file can be written and then used for every page. So can other parts of a web page. When a part needs changing (Phone/fax No) instead of changing every page just change and all are done.

THEN came the monkeys. Now some pages have fine handsome headers whilst other pages show obvious signs of simian attack. Yet all use the same

I go to fight monkeys.

Has this happened elsewhere?
