It's not the same!

Couple of night ago I was watching South Park. The episode’s theme relied partly on the relations between Americans and Canadians and the American view of expressed toward Canadians. Never mind the whole theme, what struck me as odd is that coming from New York and have been living in Chicago for almost tow years, all the Canadian jokes and remarks did not have the same effect that they would have if I was still in New York.

McAfee fails to secure!

Up to couple of weeks ago I have always used Symantec for my antivirus software. But in the last two weeks I decided to try McAfee AntiVirus, which comes as part/component of the McAfee SecurityCenter and provided for free to Comcast subscribers. So, I installed it on some of the machines I have at home.

A side note about my home network. I have couple of mid-towers, couple of laptops and a server. I use VNC to remote into the machines. For those of you who do not know what VNC is. It is an application used to remotely view the screen of another computer and have full control of it, almost as if you were there. I say almost, because the user has only software control and is not able to do anything physical to the machine, like a hard reboot for example. Hens “remote” :).
