A Tale Of Two Governments And Their Library Web Filtering Policies
from the use-filters!--don't-use-filters! dept
An amusing set of articles when put next each other – which gives you an idea of the types of governments people find in different places. Today, the South Carolina state government demanded that all public libraries must use web filters. Then, the city of San Francisco has told its public libraries that they must not use web filters. Of course, how all this plays out with the federal government (who says libraries should be forced to use filters) should be fun to watch.

1) Uninstall Outlook and install a good third party email client, like Pegasus, in its place.
2) Run any version of ZoneAlarm all the time.
Some define insanity as doing the same thing over and over — and expecting a different result.
Endlessly patching and re-patching Windows to fix Outlook exploits is insane.
