According to this article: Hackers Seek XP SP2 Weaknesses, users of peer-to-peer services like Kazaa will become the new targets of hackers. The new service pack for Windows XP contains a firewall that turns off a computer's "listening service mode" but users of file sharing software have to turn this mode back on for the file sharers to work. This mode is what hackers use to connect with and take over a computer.
So if you are a music pirate ... tough. I hope you get hacked soon.
... and it's free!
A friend just directed me to this great toolbar for web developers provided by the National Information Library Service in Australia. Although the toolbar is meant to assist developers to create pages that are useable by people with disabilities, the functions it provides are extremely useful to any developer.

The long awaited Service Pack 2 for Windows XP will be here soon, honest. Just don't hold your breath.
I ran the "repair" on VS.NET 2003 on a Windows 2000 machine and afterwards got an error when I tried to open or create a web application.
The default Web access mode for this project is set to file share, but the project folder at 'http://localhost/appname' cannot be opened with the path 'd:\inetpub\wwwroot\appname'. The error returned was:
Unable to create Web project 'appname'. Unable to create the Web location 'd:\inetpub\wwwroot\appname'. Access is denied.
The ASPNET user has permission to the d:\inetpub\wwwroot but the permission is not inherited.
Go to the folder in Win Explorer, right-click and select Properties then Security. Select the "ASP.NET Machine Account". At the bottom of the tab check "Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object" and click OK.
