Microsoft's answer to Google Desktop

Well, you probably have heard of the new MSN Toolbar Suite that is their answer to Google’s desktop search. To install it you need to have IE 5.01 (if you want the popup blocker then IE 5.5+), XP or Win 2000 (with SP4) and Outlook 2000 (or higher) or Outlook Express 6.0 (or higher) if you need to search in emails and half-gig of recommended disk space. Feel free to check out a list of all the features. If you fancy checking it out, then you can download it for free too (its about 4.8 mb). I still have not tried it yet, will give it a spin and upload my findings over the holidays sometime (no time in the short term and no broadband at home). Has anyone else tried it? What have your experiences been?

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
