i am just here to enlighten my knowledge of MAC's and to get out of the stereo typical label of a PC lover that many would so like to think.
i like a good knowledgable debate between the 2 platforms and if properly done - both sides come out learning something new, hopefully as opposed to being zealots to their prefered system.

Fair enough. Can I ask - what were your peticular counter measures against this past months wormapalooza? by the way, I thoroughly hate that kind of miserable slob -matter of fact I posted the first warnings of it in a Linux forum as well as the first fixes And though I can say I don't like a personal computer being so exposed, it really shouldn't matter in my view. That sort of thing should not happen :rolleyes:

Did not pay much attentin to it - i got my norton corprate installed and let it do it's thing - no viruses came into my systems or affected one of them - i am in charge of 17 PC's in a home office set up and have no Uni or college degree's. - one of the PC's receives our email and gets between 300-500 emails daily.
All viruses from people (as always - usually from hotmail and aol) were caught and automaitcally handled before i even got to the emails.
in the 3 years i have worked for this company - i have never had a virus - and 2 of my machines dont even have Anti- V on them.
i must be doing something right that top end corprate IT people can not seem to figure out - even after all those years of schooling (i dropped out in grade 11)

Here's one thing that really urks me about having to use a PC at work. And this is all about the GUI.
At home with OS X, when I go to the finder I have my drive, disks, home account directories, and a few folders that I use regularly on the left side for easy access. This is all quite easy to use.
Here at work I have a PC running XP. I've noticed that when I go to open a file - the window sometimes has the following:
My Recent Documents
My Network Places
But not ALWAYS!
Sometimes I have the following:
My Network Places
No consistency. I hate it and it's very frustrating to not have the same options all the time.

Yeah, I know what you mean. The cross - app flexiblility of doz is inconsistent, and a part of the idiotic ease of malicious access. And with the new service packs OH how I love that wording for software all secret and payed for! Are likely to cause that to get a bit worse. Much of the longhorn staff has been moved to service pack work and I feel so sorry for them -- their task is monumental! The new world of Mac and BSD based OS X rules! Left doz around Christmas and never looked back!

dziner: Are you accessing the files from the Start menu or from the My Computer folder [on the desktop]?
Alternatively, you could just open the program you wish to run, hit "open" (Control-o or File-open), and the document will open.
Just a thought.
