Forums are going well on the new server, there's about 60 people in there now and continuing to grow. If you still can't get in and you've tried the suggestions on the old forums page, sit tight, your DNS should update soon.

Daron noticed this warning about a new virus expected to hit Oz shores today.. this is described as a "cocktail" virus, because it was written in the 80's and features Tom Cruise throwing drinks around.. ooorr.. maybe because it has a few separate threats built in. I think Alch already linked this, but better safe than sorry - the 80's were a terrible, terrible time and we should do everything possible to avoid returning to them. More info here on TheReg, here on ZDNet and here on Symantec. Affects Windows boxes only of course.. and mostly only IIS-serving machines, but can also get in through Guest accounts and SMB shares. This page on TechTV reckons it arrives as an email attachment too. Slippery little sucker!

Morpheus noticed an article saying that old computers are better. Picture this: a PC that never crashes, boots instantly, doesn't catch viruses, plugs into your TV set and costs less than $600. While this sounds like the miracle PC of the future, it could actually describe a number of home computers made in the late '70s and early '80s.

We've seen this before but Sciby reminded me of it, the cool Guess The Movie Or TV Show game database thing. It's really quite clever.
