Virus information and Internet hoaxes
"Don't Spread That Hoax!"
Visit this page if you've heard that Craig Shergold is a dying kid who wants to get in the Guinness book by receiving record number of Nieman-Marcus-Cookie-Recipe email-virus messages, or if your spouse wants to "Make Money Fast" and protect your computer against the aol4free pyramid scheme, that was actually started by BlueStar LSD-using gangsters who drive with their headlights off. Or something like that.
Read the FCC's 12/98 statement re: "internet tax" issues.

Okay, so where's some accurate/useful info

Also see the National Computer Security Association's NCSA Virus Lab page. Contains info on virus alerts and hoaxes, antivirus product certification, and much information on computer viruses.
Know of a good anti-virus system?
Well, as a matter of fact... Take a look at f-prot, which is IMO, the best anti-virus software for the average (or above-average) DOS/PC-compatible computer user. The full-strength (DOS) version is free for private use (CHEAP shareware for business use) and available for download; you can get updates online approximately every two months.
Windows users, take heart: the same company (Frisk International) is currently offering a limited demo version of the F-Prot Professional Anti-virus Toolkit, v3.0, for Windows 3.1x, Win95 & Windows NT (server & client).
Not everyone wants to use the CueCat just to increase their exposure to commercial messages; several non-Windows drivers and utilities are now available, and there have been discussions about the possibility of using such a barcode reader as part of a user-authentication process (no, you won't have to get a barcode tattooed to your sensitive bits). Anyway, to find out more on alternative uses for the CueCat, point your browser towared the CueCat Links Page
Available for several months now, the
mailing list exists for those using/trying to use Pervasive Software's
PervasiveSQL-2000 for Linux. Recently released, this server is
apparently intended as an easy, stable server capable of providing
services for Btrieve-based applications (whether they're currently
being met via Win95 peer-to-peer or client-server systems). In
theory at least, it should be able to provide the speed associated
with the Btrieve transactional database and its use of API calls,
combined with the increased data integrity gained by use of a single
database engine serving multiple requesters.
Among other things, it also offers means to transform those databases into SQL-queryable databases, complete with ODBC.
When I last toyed with it (summer 2000), it seemed very much "not-ready-for-prime-time"; they've been working on it and promising another set of patches Real Soon Now. Folks using Therapist Helper might be interested in this, to implement the groovy new client-server version of the system. I see that the client-server version of TH is being offered on the NT version of Pervasive, but not on Linux (boggle); I'm hoping they're just waiting for PSQL2Ki' stability and reliability on the Linux platforms to catch up with the more mature version, as I think that may make it more affordable (and potentially more secure).
