Re: HeartBleed and Browsers?

Which browser is best, considering the HeartBleed problem?

Since the "heartbleed" bug was a server-side bug, it makes absolutely no difference which browser you use as far as this vulnerability is concerned.

Re: Poll: Movie Theater Visits?

Since buying my first large-screen HDTV (46-in 120Hz 1080p, near the end of November, 2009), my movie going has dropped to on the average of less than once a year (closest selection: Never). Now I generally wait until Netflix has a title I want to [more]

Re: yahoo toolbar

Re: Why that virus scan was taking forever

I recall seeing some problem like this on a unix box. In that case, it turned out that there was a link in a subdirectory that pointed to two levels up in the same tree, so traversing the subdirectories would not come to an end until there was a [more]

Re: Resurrection v. Believe

Re: "Helix" Renewed

I tried to like Helix too but after two tedious episodes I gave up. From your post it sounds like that was a good decision.

Re: Growing Up Fisher

I have been enjoying this one. In a way, it's reminiscent of some of the early 1960s sitcoms. I'm also looking forward to CW's What's My Line?, which has new episodes Friday.

Re: Sharknado 2: The Second One

Too bad Jay Leno retired from the Tonight Show. He had a trailer for Chinado that he did one night during his monologue, and it would have been nice to see a Double-Chinado trailer. :)
