Well, it finally happened. TechTV and G4 have finally merged into G4TechTV. A lot of thought went into that name. The biggest lost of the whole merger was Call for Help which had a devoted following, but unfortunately didn't match the age demographic of G4. I didn't watch the show much myself, as it was more for beginners, but was a great service for those who had just bought their first computer and wanted to learn the basics.

McAfee AntiSpyware

With all the spyware floating around the Internet these days I decided to give McAfee AntiSpyware a try after hearing good things about it. Boy was that a mistake. I don't know if it has something to do with my system configuration, but between the two programs it runs, it uses almost 200MB of memory. This is totally uncalled for. I'm going to go back to running Ad-aware and SpyBot Search and Destroy once a week. They don't use 200MB of memory and they are free.


I got bored today and decided to give Blogger a go. Hey, maybe I'll even get lucky and they'll invite me to partake in the Gmail preview for signing up.
