Thanks again for the outstanding newsletter. I’m a low-level wanna-be
Geek, but there is always something useful in it.
Anyway, I can’t remember if you have discussed Google Toolbar lately.
Thought you might be interested in what the IT security folks at my
employer (U.Mich) had to say. And their white paper on it looks pretty
