For those that may have read my former thread about what to and not to do as a new pc user a few weeks back, I can now proudly say I went online today. My very own IP address. Woohoo! The first thing I did was get the Norton antivirus running and updated, downloaded Zonelabs Zone alarm and checked the weaknesses on www.grc.com(I also installed the service pack for windows xp's flaws) and d/l Kazaa for, well... you know I also read a post about that trillian chat and even though I'm not very familiar with it yet I think its the cat's ass. The best thing is now I can hang out at my favorite website anytime I want. That in itself makes having the net worth it. And oh yeah Erica from ICQ just popped up. Again. Ahh... life with the internet!
