Viruses: not a Linux problem?

Ever heard the phrase "I use linux, so I don't have to worry about using a virus scanner. Linux doesn't get viruses!" Famous last words! has an interesting blog post on the topic.
Viruses: not a Linux problem? : Virus Analyst's Diary - "More and more organizations are starting to use Linux alongside Windows, with a Linux file-server storing Windows applications. These files can be infected at desktop level, with infected files then being stored on the server. Organizations must therefore accept the necessity of scanning the Linux server to protect against malicious code attacks.

Looking for a good blog?

Technorati has just released a new service that aims to make it easy to find blogs.
Its called "Blogfinder" and it seems to work fairly well, but it is based largely on people "Claiming" and "Tagging" their blogs.
Which has some nice effects, such as the fact that my blog (A Word A While) is currently the only the only blog listed under "Lingustics"...

See for yourself:
More blogs about lingusitics.

It reminds me that I must get around to updating AWAW this weekend...
It might be called "A Word A While" but it certainly has been a while!
