Oh well here I am again, and it's not Tuesday :D

ICQ Lite Beta Build #1068
A new release of ICQ lite is out. For those of you who don't know, ICQ lite is a smaller cut down version of the full bloated to heck ICQ. It can happily co-exist with ICQ

and they recommend that you do it that way. It can be had from here (http://www.icq.com/download/). Not sure if I can be bothered with it though, I know it's not

going to be as good as Trillian (http://www.trillian.cc)

MiniBrowser 1.1.60a
This is supposed to be a new free webbrowser which incorporates the IE engine. You can see more

here (http://www.majorgeeks.com/article.php?sid=2435&cat=5). I've added it into my download list, I sure do have a collection of browsers at the moment.

Actual Title Buttons 1.7
This isn't free it's shareware. But it allows you to add new buttons to the title bar of any program which can do things such as allowing all programs to be minimised to

the tray. Here for more (http://www.majorgeeks.com/article.php?sid=2677&cat=23)

IncrediMail Xe Build 838
There is a new version of that email client which I assume must be really horrible from what I've heard about it it's all just the ability to create HTML (they're the devil)

emails and the like. But what ever you do, make sure you atleast make it worthwhile to send in HTML format, it's pain when it's all standard formatting.

Quantum Encryption
They've tested out networks using Quantum Encryption at speeds of 250Mbps. See here (http://www.electronicstimes.com/tech/news/OEG20021111S0036).

New Portal to toast Yahoo!
There is a new portal out My Way (http://www.myway.com/) that is supposed to toast Yahoo! but not in the good way. Having a quick look at it myself though

and it just seems like a nwe front end for Google (http://www.google.com) but with a new interface to it.

British men out-phone women
With cell-phones being all the craze it's now been found that British men use the phone more often than their female counterparts do. Nzoom has the info (http://technology.nzoom.com/technology_detail/0,1608,146872-113-119,00.html).

I conclude that there is a bug in Notepad in XP. It doesn't copy/paste well into there, and there seems to be a bug in the wordwrap feature.

Also the null thing here is really annoying.
