Alice, where have you been all my life?

,----[ Quote ]
| I just ran into alice, which is an irc 
| client you run on a box, and then you 
| connect to it via youâre browser. So I 
| installed it (forgot the last time I used 
| CPAN), then went to localhost:8080/view. 
| It has a little settings box so you can 
| set your prefs and channels. 



How good is WINE at running Windows software on Linux? Good
enough to get infected

,----[ Quote ]
| Filip was rewarded with an incredibly annoying
| bogus app that didn't care what platform it was
| installed on. Win Police Pro set up shop and
| began "scanning" his WINE C: drive for
| "viruses," and WINE neatly transformed the
| Windows system tray alerts to Gnome
| notifications. The infection was also able to
| attach itself to the WINE registry.
| While it's not the most positive endorsement of
| WINE around, it's still pretty impressive that
| an app like this was able to function without
| missing a beat (apart from a single error
| message).
