Express Yourself to Microsoft -- Microsoft's new Macintosh Office development team (about 100 developers dedicated to working on the Macintosh version of Microsoft Office 97) has posted a set of survey questions on the Web, the answers to which they hope will help them make Office more Mac-like. The mainstays of Office, Excel and Word, are among the most important Macintosh applications - without them, the Mac would have little to no chance of being sold in quantities to large businesses. Thus, it's in all of our interests to encourage Microsoft to create more Mac-like applications, much as the MS Bay team is doing with the Mac version of Internet Explorer. [ACE]
Trust Local Addresses in VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal
VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal feature stops all kinds of network attacks, including port scans, ping floods and more. However, you may have some devices on your network that send out pings or other requests that may be interpreted as attacks. To prevent this, add them to the Trusted Addresses list so they won't be blocked. You can even add a range of addresses with wildcards, such as 192.168.1.*.
