Cranberries Block Tooth Decay!

There are many excellent benefits that can be derived from natural substances like herbs and fruits. We have known for some time that cranberries can prevent urinary tract infections, now, scientists have found that cranberries can also prevent tooth decay!

Cranberries Prevent Tooth Decay

The scientists found a compound in the fruit can stop bacteria from clinging to the teeth, blocking the formation of damaging plaque deposits. Also, the cranberry compound appeared to block bacterial enzymes that play a key role in plaque formation. I think it is great that so many natural substances have the benefits to our health that they do… it seems that our Creator has many natural means to help us protect our health… naturally!

Microsoft Windows Anti-Spyware Update Is Out

I’ll admit, I’ve been on an “Anti-Microsoft” binge of late… sigh! However, I bring out good things when they do them as well. Given that the success of Windows, and it’s lack of security overall has made Spyware so big a problem… it is only fair that they (M$) would release a new, improved version of their Anti-Spyware beta release. Here’s some info on that release:

Microsoft “Defender”

Be sure to read the comments about it as well. Interesting! This release also removes the very EVIL Sony DRM Rootkit. Nice touch!

Cartoon that Parodies Drug Ads!

As a Certified Natural Health Professional, I get REALLY irritated by the drug commercials on TV! They drive me nuts. They usually go something like, “You know you need our drug, you have some symptoms, we won’t tell you what they are, or what our drug will do… but take it! You’ll feel better, and so will we! After all, if you don’t bug your doctor to get him (or her) to prescribe it for you, how will we make the tons of money we make?” OK, something like that. Anyway, apparently, I am not the only one, check this out:

Cartoon: The Drugs I Need!

Listen to the “disclaimerâ€? at the end carefully! It is a hoot! This is also a serious reminder about how the “Big Pharma” companies are partnering with doctors (most, I choose to believe, without their knowing they are party to it) to foist tons of medications on an already overly medicated United States!

Xbox 360 – Typically Microsoft!

Why do I say, “typically?” Well, when it works, it is pretty nice… nice interface, pretty images… but as with everything else M$, it isn’t rock-solid dependable! You’ve heard of the “Blue Screen of Death” (BSOD) on Windows systems… here are screen shots of the equivalent on the new, much hyped, Xbox 360:

Xbox 360 crash screens

After all the lead-up to the Xbox 360 release, one would think that they would have tried to make it less prone to crashing! Oh, yes! It is not a bug, it is a feature!

Flawed Study Again Shows Microsoft is Willing to Lie to Dis Linux!

As the author says, “Another day, another lame attempt by Microsoft to show that Windows is better than Linux.” Of course we know, it is not! However, that doesn’t stop M$ from pulling out the stops to lie about it!

Opinion: New Linux study suggests fundamental Microsoft credibility problems

Read this article carefully. Bottom line: If M$ is willing to skew the data this much, what does it say about their belief in their own product?!? There is a reason that Netcraft says (as of today) that Linux has 70.98% of the Web server market. That is out of 74,572,794 sites that reported. Dewd! The numbers tell the story. Webmasters know who to trust. After all, you want your Web server up at ALL times!

By the way, I am (of course) running CentOS Linux on all my web servers at Dr. Bill Bailey.NET. Word.

Sex and the FBI: Will it Get You to Open an Attachment?

A better question? Are you an idiot? No? Prove it! Don’t open an attachment that claims to be a Paris Hilton video, or link/download tool to receive it! Also, if the “FBI” sends you an e-mail that says that they have evidence that you have been visiting “naughty sites”, well… do you REALLY think they would TELL you?!?

Sex, Lies and the FBI

So… I ask again, are YOU an idiot? I hope not. Bottom line, don’t EVER click ANY e-mail attachment!

Open Source ISN’T Communism!

Bill Gates and his evil minions would like you to believe that Open Source software like Linux, Firefox, and OpenOffice are all EVIL because they are open and free. Riiiight! And he (and they) wouldn’t have any reason to “paint” Open Source as a “commie-plot” now would they… no, surely not!

Open Source Isn’t Communism

In point of fact, I am a HUGE Open Source supporter, and I am also anti-commie, serious right wing Christian extremist. (Yes, I say “extremist,” because as a Christian, I am EXTREMELY blessed!) So… I could never support anything that was commie in nature. However, if there are folks that love to code and develop software and share it to the world for free… then, dewd, I am there! So, why support Uncle Bill Gates and company when you can use free and Open Source software? Good question!

Geek Software of the Week: TVTad

This week’s Geek Software of the Week requires a few caveats! First, you should only use it to download TV programs that you legally have rights to, second, you have to have a BitTorrent client like Azureus installed prior to installing this software. TVTad allows you to select a TV program and then download it every week! So, imagine setting it to receive Stargate SG-1 and every week, you will get the episode on your computer! Cool! This is the beginning of IPTV, one of my favorite “cool ideas” that folks are talking about today!

TVTad

Check it out! This is very cool… let’s just hope the RIAA and the networks don’t kill it!
