Maybe I should give it a try. Does it pester the user with annoying pop-ups?

I've been using Avast for a couple of years and love it! When I recently installed it on my Win7 machine, I did start seeing popups, right after startup, just telling me it's been updated, or some such message. Not really annoying to me!

Me too. And the horrible part is - it never compiles in the morning... :-(

My favorite is You can set up your own radio station or listen to some of theirs. You can skip &/or "ban" songs or artists. The free version only gives you 6 skips per hour, but the paid one ($3.99/month, I think?) gives you unlimited. I use it on my computer, and on my Droid. I love it!

Hi - not sure if this is truly meaningless, but this is my favorite Java forum, so here goes... A few years back, I found (on Javaranch) a list of some companies that offer Java & JSP hosting. I've been searching this morning & can no longer find it.

I'm ready to fire Mocha Host. Also, I just had someone from GoDaddy tell me that they support Java & JSP, only to find out after I purchased a plan, that she lied...

Anyone have any inexpensive options to suggest?

Many thanks!!

My daughter loves pecan pie, but doesn't like the pecans (puh-kahns). So once in a while I make it w/o the pecans. We call it "Goo Pie".

Morale? Morality? Fairness? Harm? etc... All of these discussions are fine, but...

A company's main purpose is the business. No matter how you slice it -- breaking an indecency law will put the company at risk (law suits, reputation in the media, etc.). In terms of business, most companies won't think twice about this -- simply get rid of the risk and move on.


Yep - it all comes down to the lawsuits. SAD but true.

Elaine, you seem to have a lot of fantasy, so why don't you elaborate more on how that would increase morale ?

Now, now... this is a family forum...

Morale? Sex at work would definitely increase morale!! Now morals - that's a different issue entirely...
