    Virtual Duct Tape

    Newsletter from PSC (Kevin and Nancy McAleavey).

    As the coming "war" impinges on the safety of the internet, we'd like to
    remind people to practice safe computing in the coming days and weeks.

    Your first order of business should be to back up ALL your important
    files, email archives, downloaded software, anything and everything that
    is of importance to you. Back up any patches or version upgrades you
    download while updating your OS, antivirus, antitrojan, firewall and
    other security software. Should you encounter a problem and need to
    reformat, it'll be easier to restore a secured system this way, rather
    than trying to redownload patches through possible slowdowns and outages
    during potential DDOS attacks. We can't stress this enough. Just back
    it all up!
