Subject: WinME firewalling

yes, excuse *cough* my not mentioning the IE vunerabilities,
... details... details.....
Comparativly, putting a win9x based box on a open
internet connection, without browsing in Internet Explorer,
is safer than a win XP / 2K box ( as we saw without even 
logging in as i had pointed out, just before LSD release of RPC
exploit code ) on the same connection.

So go buy grandma winME, and update to the latest non IE or
patched IE 6, no fancy-smanshy firewall or setup pains needed
oh and set her Outlook Express to disable HTML to view mail.
and no kazza ( p2p ) or the elderlys favorite, Bonzi Buddy ("but mr
technician... he talks to me")   ....for crying out loud
