Subject: The new Microsoft math:  1 patch for 14 vulnerabilities, MS04-011

  But, Windows has a nice little utility that will patch you system for you
and pop up a nice little box near the clock that says system patched too...
Windows Update works quite well actually.  Now if it was only turned full on
