Tip from the Page Editors: The Page Editors will pretty much remove your email address every time they see it in a question. This happens for two reasons. First, it keeps you from being subjected to all kinds of spam after your question is closed. More importantly, it's against the site's rules to give or receive points for a question that gets answered outside of the pages at EE. You're welcome to post your email address in your profile, however, but we would recommend using something like yourname "at"
Nata's Corner: Is anything REALLY secure?

woman in specticalsNever mind that Boston College ran out to an 11-point lead in their NCAA tournament game Saturday, only to choke it away with some shoddy defense. The basketball team must be taking some pointers from the university's IT department, which was the subject of an attack by people trying to get to a list of 100,000 alumni who are prospective donors to the school. The machine is actually managed by a third party service, but the virus that attacked it was trying to access the database.

Apple's iTunes store was also the target of a hack by the same teenager who wrote DVD-cracking software back in 1999. This is a little bit different, though. It allows Linux users to purchase music from Apple's iTunes store, but without all that annoying anticopying software. There's already a Windows version, so it's a good bet that Apple's lawyers will be busy too.

ameba asked me to mention the petition to Microsoft about Visual Basic. It seems like the least I can do; he's made my job as a Page Editor a lot easier, and his list of certificate holders is an important part of the newsletter every issue.

Tip for New Members: Getting a refund

If you feel you've answered your own question without getting any help from the Experts, post a request in the Community Support topic area, listing your question -- the URL helps a lot -- and your reason for asking to have your points refunded.

The Moderators will want you to post your solution in the question, and they will leave a note in your question to that effect. If you don't post it, the Moderators may not refund your points, depending on what the other participants in the question say. So make sure you explain yourself.
