This is a trial of what I had in mind for a news/info post.
If people like this then I was thinking that I would post every week or so....

it was first talked about in this post ( http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=29589 )

tell me what programs you would like me to follow versions of.
I can't follow every program on the net but I will do my best :-)

if people could post as to what linux distro you use and what anit-virus program.

++++Anti Virus++++

AntiVirŪ Personal Edition

VDF file

I was thinking perhaps:
ICQ and ICQ Lite
MSN Messenger
WinAmp and WMP 9 info
Also, Updates for IE, Netscape and Opera too (Although I use Phoenix - Search google for "Phoenix Download"

Its a good idea IMHO

when i resume work (next year i hope and not this year) i'll see if i have the time to do the news again.

otherwise everyone can pitch in with the latest updates of their favorite programs.

btw big thanks to Kiwitas for all the antivirus updates over the last year or so. very helpfull.
