holier than thou

Since Sunday is a big religious day, I figured why not point the only installation of Windows XP at my house towards Windows Update tonight and allow it to repent for it’s sins. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve updated anything, but here is a summary of what I had to install:

  • 5 “Security Updates” – it’s quite funny that every single one of these started with either “A security issue has…” or “Several security issues have…” and ended with “been identified that could allow an attacker to compromise your Windows-based system.”
  • 1 “Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 6″ which is touted just the same as the 5 Security Updates above: “A security issue has been identified that could allow an attacker to compromise a computer running Internet Explorer and gain control over it.”

Now would any of you care to follow me? I made THE Switch almost five months ago and it’s amazing the stuff I’ve learned since. I can never go back…
