Hopefully everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I had a lot of fun with my daughter - we goofed off on World of Warcraft quite a bit. Lisa and I also watched a bunch of sappy holiday movies (think Hallmark). It was a very enjoyable time away from the computer... and if you haven't taken a list a few days away, remember the old saying all work and no play.

If you've heard about Sony's "rootkit" and the hub bub surrounding it then this is interesting.
