AntiCrash at JARS "is a Java applet which is developed in order to prevent Windows95/98 from crashing at all. Fixes the main BUG problem of Win9X ; poor memory management and unstable Explorer.exe. Frees up ram, making the pc run nicer and smoother. No more lock ups while surfing caused by shortage of memory. It loads on your Windows desktop and povides each application with its own memory link, so if one program crashes by chance the other is not affected and continues to run."

xiph.org: Ogg Vorbis "is a fully Open, non-proprietary, patent-and-royalty-free, general-purpose compressed audio format for high quality (44.1-48.0kHz, 16+ bit, polyphonic) audio and music at fixed and variable bitrates from 16 to 128 kbps/channel.

In Crypto-gram -- June 15, 2000, cryptography expert Bruce Schneier disses SOAP and says it will "open up a whole new avenue for security vulnerabilities." With M$ and DCOM lapping up SOAP, Schneier is probably right. While I like the idea of an XML-based protocol for inter-object communications across distributed networks, Bruce's security concerns are not necessarily misplaced. .
