Tech notes

Does anyone have any strong feelings one way or the other about either ZoneAlarm or Sygate Personal Firewall? I'm currently using the trial version of EZ Firewall that came with my computer, but the trial is about to expire and I'm not so attached to it to pay for the full edition if there's a free product out there that will do as good a job. ZoneAlarm and Sygate seem to be the best candidates, but I'd like to hear from people who've used one or the other before I make my decision.

Firefox 1.0 is out! Unfortunately, it breaks most of the extentions I installed under 1.0PR. That's not a good thing. Oh well, I imagine the incompatible extentions will be updated soon enough.

Speaking of updated versions of useful programs, Grisoft has released a new version of its free AVG Antivirus System. It doesn't seem tremendously different from the previous version, but it's good to see Grisoft looking out for all their customers, and not just those who pay for the privilege.
