Installed XP Service Pack 2

Ho hum. I cannot use WS-FTP but everything else seems ok. I can use WS_FTP if I set the Internet Firewall "OFF" while using the FTP upload (not used that often).

Other things appear "ok". ICQ is "partially blocked" (whatever that means). I have the option to unblock it.

If the machine is less vulnerable I can live with it for the time being.

Semagic (Agent for LiveJournal) appears to work.

Federal Election (Australia)

The Federal Election is to be held tomorrow. (Howard vs Latham). The ninemsn site is suggesting that the newspapers are predicting a coalition (conservative) win. The on-line poll I just partipated in at about 5 minutes past 3pm on the eve of the election asks the question :-

Will the coalition government be returned to power in tomorrow's federal election?

The response....

YES -> 17,140
NO -> 35,106

"The only poll that counts is on election day"

It's also the day I partake of a beer in Werrington pub before contemplating the hike to the election booth. I also usually have a beer on the way back as well :-)
