Ohhh god i am a nerd.

I plucked up the courage and took the nerd test ....Results below.

I am nerdier than 86% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

It was a pretty rubbish New Year for us, both the kids and her indoors were loaded with the cold, closely followed by me :(

On the technical front i have finally ditched IE as my primary browser and now use firefox, not just for the tabbed browsing but also the finer degree of control.

Microsoft have launched their spyware checker today as Beta 1 , there is a rumour that the final version will be subscription only, i hope not, this would be the final insult to many, as it would be asking customers to pay MS to fix the weak areas of IE and Windows. (As you know i am a big MS fan , but think this would be a step to far).

Finally i got a bit of a suprise after installing Linspire (AKA Lindows), i like to keep tabs on all the major Linux dists, to see where the industry in general is heading. Linspire is very slick and shows a lot of promise, driver support will always be the weakest part of Linux, until it will work with all my hardware with no recompiling and fumbling around on the command line it will never make the big time on the desktop for the avg joe. IMHO
