More Than Half of Known Vista Bugs are Unpatched

More Than Half of Known Vista Bugs are Unpatched – MsManhattan writes “Microsoft security executive Jeff Jones has disclosed that in the first six months of Vista’s release, the company has patched fewer than half of the operating system’s known bugs. Microsoft has fixed only 12 of 27 reported Vista vulnerabilities whereas it patched 36 of 39 known bugs in Windows XP in the first six months following its release. Jones says that’s because “Windows Vista continues to show a trend of fewer total and fewer high-severity vulnerabilities at the six month mark compared to … Windows XP,” but he did not address the 15 unpatched flaws.” Read more of this story at Slashdot.

You would think that Perry Ellis, a "respectable" department store clothing maker, could afford something half-way decent to hand out to its customers -- but you would be wrong. Like many designer products, after you get through the ornate packaging and custom plastic box, it's just cheap junk from China. In this case, that cheap junk happens to be a 64MB (that's right, megabyte) USB flash drive. Of course, you'll be thanking Perry when you've got a place to store one big Photoshop file.

[Thanks, kristofer]

I just tried this out on a server that was setup for digital-anarchy.com and I have to say its pretty good. The voice quality is amazing and the built in browser is cool. You can setup your server to pull up a page when your connect and change channels. Is this a replacement for ventrilo? Click below to see a screenshot of the client.

My first Drupal Install.

This crazy thing you're looking at is Drupal. I will be logging all my changes to this site as I make it look good and functional. I plan on turning this domain name into a storage of Tech Articles + HowTo's. We will see how this goes as I try and make it work, and look good at the same time.
