Tonight's notes: (?)

7pm PT:

We look at a switcher between SBC/Yahoo DSL and Comcast cable, and discuss how to ask for help and how retention specialists will bend over backwards to keep you, we send a caller to gamespy.com to get details on how to do wireless gaming via a laptop with his PS2, we look at email hoaxes and where to get information on them (we mention snopes.com as one of the best sources) and more.






8pm PT:

What to do when your hard drive starts giving you information about free space that you know is incorrect ( we recommend Norton Utilities for Windows users and DiskWarrior for Mac users), whether to use a software firewall like ZoneAlarm at the same time that you're using a hardware firewall router, we recommend Partition Magic as a way to rearrange partitions, get rid of them and create new ones without formatting the drive and more.



9pm PT:

Extending the time you have with one IP address when your ISP assigns them dynamically, a look at the new Hydra web appliance and whether it is usable by you and me, protecting yourself from pop up ads when online with AOL, and downloading the new ZoneAlarm package and making it work with Windows XP Service Pack 2's built-in firewall (turn that off) and more.
