Gimme a break..

I particularly like the second link, which states on ordering a security
CD:

"Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery."

By which time of course there will be either:
        a) a patch to correct the mistakes in the patch on the CD 
           which is in mail
or
        b) a whole new round of patches
or
        c) it will be too late to apply them because the users machine 
           is already trojaned to hell and back.
