Hi. My name is Jim and I’m a Linkaholic. Just thought I’d post a few of the top news items I’ve learned about recently to make sure everyone is up-to-date on everything happening these daze. Of course, these are only the things I feel are most important… Here ya go:

Blaster Worm – It’s still out there, and people are still getting hit with it. Here’s another great article all about it.

Sobig Worm – It’s back again, this time it’s variation “F”, and just as rampant as before (if not more) so make sure your antivirus definitions are up-to-date at of 8/18/2003 to stay protected from this one. More Info, Removal Tool

Gas Prices – They’re currently flying out of control everywhere! Over 20 cents increase in some areas just today alone! I understand a pipline break in Arizona is to blame for some of it, according to my nephew Jay in Scottsdale and this article. He says the lines at the gas stations are miles long and people are getting into fights over it! Here’s another good article on it.

The War’s Not Over – Somebody blew up the UN Headquarters in Baghdad, in case anyone thought the war might be over…

Viagra 2.0 – Called “Levitra”, this drug is supposedly going to give Viagra a run for its money… Get ready for a new flood of spam now…

The California Governor Race – Can you spell “Schwarzenegger?” I thought not. Try this one: Georgy Russell. She even has a BLOG!

Microsoft releases Office 2003 – October 21st is the release date. Whoop-tee-doo. Use this instead. It’s great, and it’s FREE!
