The Fantastic 4GL

Saturday, July 9, 2005: Everything tech: your calls, comments, instant messages and emails about technology and pop culture...it's Online Tonight with David Lawrence for a Saturday.

Previously: David Lawrence's Personal Netcast - 7/8/2005 >>
Next: Greylisting >>


Tonight's notes: (?)

7pm PT:

A look at how greylisting could be a perfect answer to 99% of the email spam problem, why you should not use Hotmail for business-grade communications, removing stubborn adware and malware, why you should get a new machine if you're on Windows 95, and some links to what we talked about on the air: Wil Wheaton's Just A Geek in audio, my book on backups, 10 Quick Steps to Perfect Backups and both Retrospect for Windows and Retrospect for MacOS X.







8pm PT:

A bit of a confusing set of phone calls on the problems installing Comcast DSL, a discussion of the differences between DSL and cable high-speed Internet access service, the three anti-adware software packages (all free) that I recommend: AdAware, SpyBot Search and Destroy, and Microsoft's Windows AntiSpyware and more.



9pm PT:

A look at fairly good-quality, low cost ($30 or so each) microphones for podcasting: the AudioTechnica ATR-25 pencil mic, the ATR-35s lapel mic, and the ATR-97 flat table mic, alternative browsers to Internet Explorer and links to the Maxtor 100 gigabyte, 200 gigabyte and 300 gigabyte OneTouch hard drives, all of which sport free copies of Retrospect backup software.
