CWS: Welcome to Hell

I met one of the most insidious little parasites of the computer world on Friday. It is called CoolWebSearch. This thing is absolutely awful. It infects your IE browser, turning it into an ad machine for porn and other spammed ad-crap. Here's a couple tips for anyone with this bug:

This is giving me a whole lot of reasons to either switch to Firefox, or switch to Linux. Maybe when A.T. gets back into town I'll ask him to put up an article on switching for gamers.

J.t.Qbe comments: In my department we have have a word for IE users: "targets". Mozilla is the way to go if you want to keep your computer crapware-free.


Yours truly is heading out on vacation momentarily for some well-deserved R and R. I'll be checking in periodically, so you shouldn't miss out on too many DOOM3 updates :)

Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith

Lucasfilm has officially announced that the name for the final Star Wars movie will be Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith. The Star Wars website also has information on various DVD releases that will be hitting stores between now and the movie's release. Revenge of the Sith makes sense and is a lot better (IMO) than Send in theAttack of the Clones or Phantom Menace. Thanks Slashdot.

BayStar to Sue SCO

From the "instant karma's going to get you" department, eWeek is reporting that BayStar will sue SCO. SCO had announced that the BayStar stock sale had been completed. BayStar begs to differ. Apparently they don't believe SCO's revenue report. Methinks SCO doesn't want people examining their books too closely. Ahhh, schadenfreude. Thanks Linux Today.
