Website Copyright Date

Have you noticed that some websites have a copyright date which is wrong?

For example:

www.somecompany.com (I appologise if you own this site)

then on the site, you have, Copyright SomeCompany Ltd 2002-2006

Now, if your lucky, your site is designed so that the footer can be changed once, so the entire site is updated. Well done.
For the others… shame on you. – Redesign your site.

Anyway.. heres a way to crack it on the head once and for all.

//PHP
2003 - < ?php echo date("Y"); ?>
//ASP
2003 - < %= year %>

This way, as long as your server date is correct, your website will always be up to date. In fact, consider using date more in this way, to save yourself manual intervention.

Antivirus Software

What do we look for when chosing antivirus software?

Personally, I’m looking for something that doesn’t,

i) Scan every mouse click, making the PC unusable
ii) Is affordable, and easy to use

We use Norton Antivirus 2006, and F-Prot at work. Both do what they say on the Tin. (*cough* no slander)

… I’ve been looking at home for something and came across C.O.M.O.D.O’s offering.
