First, a whine. Is it just me or has spamming increased significantly over the last few months? Despite filters and blockers up the gazoot, I'm getting flooded (and, no, Alan, I don't frequent those sites).
Second, here is a service to professors and practitioners alike. Starting several weeks ago, my computer starting popping up the following message "Generic Win32 Host Services has encountered an error and shut down." What I noticed was thereafter I could not sync my cell phone/PDA off Windows Mobile. I don't know if the two were related or not. But I stumbling onto a Microsoft support page with a fix for the error message this morning, and I offer it to all LPB readers if they have encountered the same issue.* [UPDATE just a hour later: I got the same error message again - so much for the patch.]

If you are a professor (and hence the only kind of person who would know there is actually an amended Article 2 out there), we also take no responsibility for the quality of the goods. Okay, now I feel a lot better. And click on the picture for a treat.
