PTuesday Reminder

Not only is it Potomac Tuesday, it's Patch Tuesday. If you use a Windows machine and don't have Automatic Updates turned on, fire up Internet Explorer and visit this page. Potentially lots of patches, depending on your version of Windows and what Office software you have installed. If you're keeping score at home, six were applicable to me, and everything went smoothly.

This is a good post, if you want to read about the details. NB: If you use Excel, I definitely recommend you have a look. Microsoft elected to leave a known hole unpatched, saying the fix wasn't brought up to snuff by the deadline.

Maybe somebody had ptomaine poisoning?
