|Bits and Pieces
Sunday, August 08, 2004 SP2.
MSDN Subscribers can now download Service Pack 2 (XP) while the rest of us will have to wait for another week.
The package weighs at 475.35MB and I have not downloaded anything of this size, recently, without Bit Torrent. With concerns from every corner that Microsoft's site could experience serious clog-issues in the coming week, a technology such as Torrent could have been considered (reflecting popular opinion here).
Plan now is to turn consumers' AutoUpdate feature on, which works somewhat similar to Torrent.
Wonder what's in store for us!
Update Aug16: 50 Programs that are affected by Windows Firewall. Enable them manually.
Aside: MSN Web Messenger Beta (dont have to install anymore) is out. Final version is to be released by year end.
This is just great. Have felt the need for one, many many times. What of Yahoo?
For more on Microsoft projects: SandBox (a la Google-Labs)
