The orange icon…It’s great that a discussion of icons has recently restarted in the RSS community. We are in the process of figuring out what icon to use on our toolbar in IE7 to represent feeds.

Security Alert, October 11, 2005
Symantec Antivirus Scan Engine Might Run Arbitrary Code
iDEFENSE reported a vulnerability in Symantec Antivirus Scan Engine.
The engine lets third-party applications interface with Symantec’s content-scanning technologies. The vulnerability exists in the Web- based administrative interface, which doesn’t properly validate input provided through HTTP requests. If an intruder gains access to the administrative interface’s TCP port (8004), he or she might be able to launch arbitrary code and gain privileged access to the system.
The problem affects Symantec Antivirus Scan Engine 4.0 for:
Microsoft ISA Server 2000, NetApp Filer, NetApp NetCache, Bluecoat, and Clearswift. The problem also affects Symantec Antivirus Scan Engine 4.3
for: Microsoft ISA Server 2000, Microsoft SharePoint, Messaging, Network Attached Storage, Caching, and Bluecoat. Symantec said that Symantec Antivirus Scan Engine 4.1 isn’t affected.
Symantec has released an update to correct the problem. The update is available through the company’s Platinum Support Site or its FileConnect Web site. The company also recommends that administrators not expose the administrative port to external networks, such as the Internet. Alternatively, you can disable the interface by setting the administrative interface port number to zero. If the interface must remain enabled, then access to that port should be restricted in some way, such as using a secure network segment. You can also control access to the port via firewall rules.

Microsoft to the Max October 10, 2005

Found this hidden away in the microsoft website, it’s Beta but worth a look.

Microsoft® Codename Max is not like any other product. That’s because it’s not a product—it’s your opportunity to try an exciting new user experience from Microsoft. Max is built on the next-generation WinFX Runtime Components technology that will drive the development of Windows Vista® applications. Today Max lets you make lists of your photos and turn them into beautiful slide shows to share with your family and friends. Tomorrow…who knows?.

You do need to uninstall the .NET component from your computer first, before installing the WinFX Runtime Component but well worth the effort. A superb way to try out part of Vista without being a MSDN Developer etc.

The photographic effects are stunning & the program is like nothing before.

Download from http://www.microsoft.com/max/download.html but please read the installation instructions first + the system Requirements.

No Epson D68 printer cartridges in UK October 8, 2005

Posted by peewitsol in Technical.

Epson have not yet supplied the UK with the cartridges for any of the D series printers. So why are retailers selling the printers if new cartridges cannot be supplied to the UK until next week.

To add insult to injury, the ink is produced within the UK !!.

Comet are willing to refund and so are Argos. They were both aware of the problem as of last week. Both have said they will replace it with the exact same model (with inks in) and by the time those inks run out, they should have the cartridges in stock.

DSG group ( Curry’s, Dixon’s & Comet ) are not selling the D series until the stock of C series has run out, plus they also know about the cartridge problem.

Any site that says they have a good stock of Epson T0611, T0612, T0613 and T0614 cartridges is talking rubbish, cos Epson haven’t got any yet . Try Epsons main supply site Here They don’t even list the D68 for ink cartridges.

Not a mention off no supplies from Epson anywhere. Now that is good PR

Anybody with the same problem can complain to the Epson UK PR team at:

Vector Marketing Communications Chiltern House 184 High Street Berkhamsted Hertfordshire HP4 3AP 01442 877167 or to Epson sales: 08702 416900

Very interesting survey that brings issues to the fore, regarding not just bloggers and blogging but the non interaction between corporate business and PR with bloggers.

Click https://extranet.edelman.com/bloggerstudy/ to see the complete findings. You can see the responses to the open-ended questions by clicking the link (https://extranet.edelman.com/bloggerstudy/FreeForm.aspx) just under the title of the study.
