One comment about XP2 - the company where I work (which produces

pulling SP2 down with autoupdate and they have no clue what
brought upon themselves) but since M$ was so idiotic as to
network functionality that allows reverse proxies to
(and I'm not talking about Juniper's back door where they
straight through) it basically makes my company's (and every other
company's) product break.
The really dumb part is that M$ has a patch for their
misdeeds and a
knowledge base article and everything - but it's not incoroporated
into autoupdate. Wonder why they would not include that fix
for SP2 in
autoupdate? Maybe they *want* to break other company's products?
Nah ... <G>
I'm sure many would have liked to the the direct link to the sp2 fix.

OK, so you're a Ph.D. Just don't touch anything.
