Hey, thanks for stopping by! It's really great to have you here, because I've been assuming that nobody is reading this thing.
But I hope you haven't been online for more than, say, half an hour. Or if you have, I hope you're not running Windows XP.
Why? Because I just read this story at newsfactor.com. For those too busy/lazy/confused to follow a link, here's the relevant quote:
An unprotected computer running Windows XP experiences an average "survival" time of 26 minutes on the Internet before hackers identify it as vulnerable, according to the SANS Institute, a cooperative Internet security organization.
Sorry. I just felt like saying that.
