After the round of attacks on websites around the ‘Net, including the White House, the Pentagon, and various other sites, the latest report is that personal computers will get hit next. So far, I’m up and running, and haven’t experienced any problems anywhere on the Internet at all. Moral: keep your computers up to date with the latest OS patches, run a good anti-virus and anti-spyware program and use a good firewall. At least, that works for me.
Speaking of viruses, the Red Sox strain has fallen to the latest Yankee immunization, to use a pretty bad metaphor. The Yanks have been relentless, going 33-17 over their last 50 games and have caught the Sox for first place in the AL East. Like I said in an earlier post, I’ve got a good feeling about this team–they’re loose, good in the clutch, have a decent rotation and are showing sparks of greatness in the bullpen. In addition, they seem to have an undefinable “togetherness,” a la the great team of ’98. There’s still half the season to go and anything can happen, but, right now, everything looks very positive.
I bought some great Thai curry paste while I was in Nong Khai, and I made a big batch of Chicken Curry With Rice today. Yummmmm, tastes great. Wish you were here to enjoy a bowl with me. Wanna join me for some? I’ve made enough to have even more later.
