And you gotta wonder how many folks are also doing like I did, and going to Linux?

Vista woes fuel Mac sales surge – analyst | Register Hardware
The 3G iPhone may be getting all the attention this week, but let’s not forget Apple’s other product line, the Mac family, which is enjoying new-found success thanks to… Microsoft.

According to US investment house BMO Capital Markets, cited by AppleInsider, Apple will have shipped up to 2.5m Macs between April and June inclusive – enough for a 39 per cent year-on-year growth rate.

More to the point, that rate of increase is more than three times the industry average of 12.2 per cent.

e-Sword for Linux

Thanks again to the always-has-an-answer Ubuntu Forum.  I have E-sword running perfectly in Linux (under Wine).  Here’s the link

The only thing that would make me happier would be for Rick to release the e-Sword code as Open Source or at least make a full blown Linux version.  “Me toos!” and other comments welcome.

[Solved] Java not working in Firefox with Ubuntu Hardy 8.04

Try as I might, I could not get java to run in Firefox 3 on Ubuntu 8.04.  Turns out to be a really simple fix.

Eirik Hoem’s Blog had the answer to my problem:

I’ve been struggling with lava support for Firefox after upgrading from Ubunut 7.10 to 8.04. All I had to do was to remove the package called icedtea-gcjwebplugin. Now, I don’t know my way around java anymore, but at least it did the trick. Worth a shot if you have problems.

Trojan Horse SHeur.AFJ (false positive within Quickbooks/Quickin)

There are a growing number of reports that this is a false positive within AGV.

I’ll update you with more soon, but for now check out this excellent post on the topic (translated to English here). Complete with screen shots and search engine analysis.

Please leave a comment if you have any information to share. Unlike the AVG Forum, stupid questions will not be deleted nor the questioners abused. We were all stupid at some point so, chill-out folks.

Update: I have found AVG to do find this with multiple PCs in separate locations. It’s definitely a false positive (misreading from the AVG software). (A note to AVG users, don’t let this bother you, I’ve been using AVG for years and I think this is only the 2nd time Its found a false positive.)

Another Update: AVG will not quarantine Quickbooks files, but it will quarantine Quicken files automatically (in many cases). If you get a message that says the files were deleted you can get them out of AVG’s Virus Vault.

Update #3: I see that the folks at Quickbooks are aware of the issue and are working with AVG to repair it.
