      floris this is a real issue you can't protect against and there is no word from a fix from Microsoft until January 9th.

      The patch has been made and posted by a reliable team and has been thoroughly tested and it can be uninstalled if desired.

      I have installed it to all machines that I have access to.

      Go read http://isc.sans.org/ and make your own choice to install this or not.

          Alright, so... for those who are not computer-terminology literate or otherwise understanding most of the above... can someone explain it to me in lament terms?
          Congratulations on the death of vBulletin, Internet Brands.

              Haha.

              Linux is rubbish for the common user though.

                It's not really, try Ubuntu or if you prefer KDE use Kubuntu. It's very user friendly compared to all the other distributions and there is a good team behing the development.

                The developer of Kubuntu is a member of my local LUG.

                    Can I use Ubuntu on an NTFS partition? I only have one hard drive, but two partitions.

                    I'd like to try dual booting linux and windows sometime.. but i'm so unfamiliar with it I'm worried I might break things. of course the data on that partition is expendable, I dont care if I have to reformat it to another file system or anything.

                      Until you are happy - why not try a Live CD - you can get one for Kubuntu or Ubuntu

                        I've tried a Live CD before, but I couldnt boot from that CD.. no idea why.

                        I'm downloading an ISO Image now though, of Ubuntu Install 5.10

                          Live CD is fine. If anyone wants one I'll happily send them within the UK, I have many left over for x36, PPC and amd64 from a talk I gave last year.

                              Great. I managed to dual boot successfully. But now I cant access the internet via ubuntu.. I use wifi.
