Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows XP

I just had to pass this along. Microsoft has a FREE tool that allows you to setup "indestructible" user setups of Windows XP Pro SP2. I haven't played with this yet, but I downloaded it and a few other tools and intend to play with it. Basically the idea is that you can setup the computer for any user to play with as they like, then when you reboot everything is restored to the original setup. Might be handy, depending upon if it lets you at least create and save some docs and stuff, probably to a floppy or thumbdrive. Could be the answer to setting up Ma & Pa's pc or perhaps for the kids.
Blurb from the front page:
Introducing powerful new software tools for shared computers in schools, libraries, Internet cafes, and other public places. The Shared Computer Toolkit helps make it easy to set up, safeguard, and manage reliable shared computers running Windows XP.
See the webcast: defend public computers
Watch a previously-recorded one-hour presentation on how to defend public computers using the Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows XP.
Note:  This webcast is based on the Beta release of the toolkit. Some improvements and changes have been made to the toolkit since the Beta release.
