    Indeed they do, with vectored thrust what was once envelope departure is
    now standard procedure.

    Great clip.

  2. A little, I remember a "vulnerability" in IE that made it easier to
    spoof against savvy users that checked the address bar and the status
    bar before trusting a link. I knew even then that just because you were
    displayed a known trusted site doesn't necessarily mean that that would
    be where the link led (you can never be *sure* - I just figured it was
    the way the internet worked and we should learn to live with it.

  6. Both security and functionality have their price!
    I clearly prefer "better be safe than sorry", and have not yet said anything
    specific about restrictions in the browser.
    I don't use IE here, except for Microsoft Update, so I configured it to
    connect only to the sites needed for Microsoft Update and to only run the
    extensions/ActiveX controls necessary for Microsoft Update.
    Where does Microsoft (except on \\live.sysinternals.com\, which is but a
    CIFS share, NOT a website[*]) offer executables for direct execution from
    their web site?
    OTOH: SAFER safeguards very well against DLL or EXE hijacking resp.
    binary planting attacks.
    Which limitation?
    Users can run any software (except Flash.-) that is properly installed
    (in %ProgramFiles% or %SystemRoot%) on their own system by their (local)
    administrator.
    This (local) administrator is (as usual) responsible to maintain a safe
    state of the system, i.e. install all necessary software/security updates,
    and remove (or better: NEVER install) vulnerable and unused software.
    Thanks.

    Stefan

    * The corresponding <http://live.sysinternals.com/> web site doesn't offer
    WebDAV access, so the argument holds there too.

  9. ....or the Canadian, Osama Bin Laden, and the Aussie?

    Three men - a Canadian farmer, Osama bin Laden and an Aussie are all
    walking together one day. They come across a lantern and a Genie pops
    out of it.

    'I will give each of you one wish, which is three wishes in total', says
    the Genie.

    The Canadian says, 'I am a farmer and my son will also farm. I want the
    land to be forever fertile in Canada '

    POOF! With the blink of the Genie's eye, the land in Canada was forever
    fertile for farming.

    Osama was amazed, so he said, 'I want a wall around Afghanistan,
    Palestine, Pakistan, Iraq and Iran so that no infidels, Americans,
    Australians or Canadians can come into our precious land.'

    POOF! Again, with the blink of the Genie's eye, there was a huge wall
    around those countries.

    The Aussie says, 'I am very curious. Please tell me more about this
    wall.'

    The Genie explains, 'Well, it's about 5,000 feet high, 500 feet thick
    and completely surrounds the countries. Nothing can get in or out; it's
    virtually impenetrable.'

    The Aussie sits down on his Harley , cracks a beer, lights a cigarette,
    smiles and says, 'Fill the fucker with water.'

    Is this supposed to be some kind of threat BD? Seriously... Are you
    actually advocating that you'll shoot someone if they come to visit? If
    that's your intention my stupid associate, if I ever come to see you in
    person; I'll be armed. And if you so much as point that gun at my feet,
    I'll blow your fucking head clear off your shoulders for you. It'll be
    a closed casket funeral; this .357 would see to it.

    I recently qualified as a marksman shot and extremely fast/accurate
    shooting with a pistol. I'm already *very good* shooting open sights at
    a distance of 100yards with my lever action Henry; Let's put it this
    way, I can now actually light a match stick without a scope; not to
    mention tack drive, and my grouping is typically 5 rounds inside a
    2inch square at 100 yards; again, open sites. I had hoped meeting you
    in person at some point in the future may result in a fist fight; but
    I'm not going to play around with some silly old man sporting a high
    powered rifle.

    I had intended to come for a social visit, and perhaps, leave a
    pumpknot or two on your head for your streetmapview post. Now that you
    seem to want to involve guns instead, This could get very bad for you.

    My advice, leave your gun at home and settle things like a real man.

    Did you ever see that guy shoot asprin tablets out of the air with his
    22 cal rifle? IIRC on the "History" channel "SharpShooters" or something
    like that. Pretty awesome shotgun work too. I have a left hand
    bolt-action 22 rifle and used to compete. Anyway, I'm sure a 22 long can
    kill someone just as dead, and for half the price. :eek:)

    I use the CCI stingers; it's a .22LR-Hyper Velocity Hollow Point.
    For standard target shooting, I use the CCI minimags; Round nose and
    hollow points; but they don't have the balls the stingers do.

    Comprehension is your friend, Jenn. Instead of reading what you think I
    wrote; try reading what's actually there on the screen, hun.

    I saw that "Sharpshooters" show several times. It was a bit boring after
    the 2nd time.
