Well this sounds like an interesting idea. I wonder how often these companies will be required to back up... if they back up more than once a week, will they pay more? I assume this will cost money. Why is this better than backing up the information yourself to a remote location?
Even better thought- who is in control of all this information? How will it be protected? This will be a hackers heaven- so much information stored in three possible locations... tasty!!

*sigh* Now, I know that it had already been desicssed the slight differences between Firefox and IE, and how both are 'theoretically' insecure but since Firefox is opensource the bugs get found faster. However... I do not not remember doing as many updates for Firefox as I do for IE. It just gets frickin annoying!! *phew* ok im fine...
Current Music:Mambo Swing - Big Bad VooDoo Daddy
Well here's whats happening in the not so exciting world of Melissa:
- I turned 22 on Sunday: nothing too eventful, Sandra made me a frickin sweet breakfast in bed (I promptly went back to bed afterwards). Went to the bar to watch the Bills game against the Dolphins (we won of course), then went to dinner with Rob, then to meet up with Ewan to go back home to watch Napoleon Dynamite. This weekend brings up the party at McFaddens, which should be interesting. Housemates got me a fondue pot... so sweet.
- School: I got a final next week... all I should be doing is studying
- I am going home for thanksgiving... still not sure if I'm happy about that
- Of course there is the juicy stuff I just can't put on here... if you know me you know what's going on...
Has anyone every tried this drink called Irn Bru ? Housemate brought home two 8-packs from her trip to Scotland. At first it reminded me of old bubble gum... but then I decided it wasn't too bad... of course we already went thru it all... bugger. Ewan was so happy to get his own eight pack from his buddy.
This new Franz Ferdinand album, You Could Have It So Much Better , is quite awesome, I am not going to lie to you. Everyone shoud pick up a copy.
Today was I rocking out with my headphones to No Doubt's, "Hella Good", much to Sandra's delight. I even jumped up on the coffee table and kicked magazines a la Walken. I of course was supposed to be studying... but meh...
I heart coffee again... does everyone remember that song we had to sing in high school?
C-O-F-F-E-E coffee is not for me,
It's a drink some people wake up with,
That it makes you nervous is no myth.
Slaves to a coffee cup, they can't give coffee up.
Yes.. that's me, pleased to meet you.

JUST EVERYONE UPDATE!!
Ohhh... it must be Christmas early, everyone is coming out with brand spankin new versions of browsers. The phishing thing sounds cool, though I am sure user average users still have no clue what it is.
So what I think this is saying is that once again- it really hasnt beefed up security, it just streamlines everything for users. w00t to being incapable of performing updates. PICNIC anyone?
I played with the registry once- to change my windows icon and my start menu text (to Moose obviously). *thankfully* I decided to make a backup of the registry part I was editing... because I made a mistake somewhere and my computer was NOT happy... at all.

I really wish I used SQL normally. Maybe I should start, maybe I should learn Java and C++ too.... guh, too many languages, too little time :(
This sounds super sweet... however I feel the security on this would be atrocious. How can you restrict who is on the network? Oh wait, you can't. They are also saying this is for "the poor people" and to keep them on the same page as "the rich people". Hello?? What "poor person" is going to spend their money on a wireless laptop? A geeky one I guess that cares little for food.

A peek into Vista.. the new OS by Microsoft. I like the idea of User Account Protection (UAP), although I can see many users disabling it if they can. It reminds me of Mozilla Firefox and how you have to put in the master password to put the saved passwords in... it doesnt just do it for you...
