LINKBLOG

FYI, a littlie bit of added security in Internet Explorer I wasn't aware of until now:

" Malicious Web sites may attempt to copy information from your Windows Clipboard. That is the utility that temporarily stores information from cut and copy operations.
You can prevent sites from downloading information from the Clipboard. In Internet Explorer, click Tools>>Internet Options. Click Custom Level on the Security tab. Scroll to the Scripting section. Select prompt for "Active scripting," "Allow paste operations via script" and "Scripting of Java applets." Click OK>>OK."
