Well then. Today, my pager went off during rounds in the PICU, and when I returned the call, I found out exactly who the secret visitors to Q from my hospital are. Wow… I’m perfectly willing to say that I’m a bit freaked out, but also very glad to have the new readers.

Thanks go out to Lawrence for sending me notice that my prediction was right — Q is now the third site listed if you’re hunting for a replacement penis. (And, by the way… holy crap, is Google indexing sites quickly these days.)

I’m glad to see that Edward Felten finally plans to speak on how his Princeton team defeated the SDMI music watermarks. I’d hate to think that the threats of the music industry would continue to prevent people from openly talking about these things.

There are two new Microsoft security updates to be aware of: a cumulative patch for IIS that actually includes a few new fixes, and an Outlook component fix. Just in case you don’t get these security updates automatically

There’s a new free website provider out there, but with a special bent: websites that help people in the hospital keep in touch with those close to them. It’s an interesting idea; I found out about them because my hospital just set up a co-branded site that offered the services to our inpatients.

I’m glad to see that there are new studies showing that all cellphones impair driving ability; maybe now the states that specifically exempt people from responsibility for accidents if they were using a hands-free phone will rethink the wisdom of those laws.

Genius, sheer genius.

Can anyone make heads or tails of this support article? This bug is biting me, preventing me from being able to save some attachments from my secure WebMail server, and I can’t figure out what the article is trying to tell me to do.


This is just a wag, but:

Where it reads:

“On the Advanced tab, click to select the Do not save encrypted pages to disk check box.”

Replace that with:

“On the Advanced tab, click to CLEAR the Do not save encrypted pages to disk check box.”

See if that makes a difference.

No dice — it still doesn’t work. For right now, I’m just using the non-SSL version of my WebMail server when I need to download a file… but that’s going to get old soon.
