We’ve been talking about security a lot lately, and for good reason. Every one of us has been forced into a position where we have to think about it, and if we don’t, then we’ll pay the price for it.

Somewhere on an old backup disc buried under a stack of magazines, I still have a copy of the eDonkey file-sharing client. Last month its creator, MetaMachine, agreed to give $30 million to the RIAA in order to duck threatened litigation. The eDonkey2000 Web site has since disappeared, replaced by a belligerent message intended to scare away visitors by implying that they are being watched. Why did eDonkey2000 fail in an arena where proprietary projects are still thriving?

Firefox 2 more like a reburbished home than new

Having downloaded Firefox 2 RC3 and played around with it for a while I can say that the product feels very much like what I just had.

It's more like a refurbished home than a new one.
