    for Mezzo.com

    THERE IS NO WAY TO DOWNLOAD YOUR SCRIPTS TO A MAC

    When you hold the control key, mac gives you the option to:

    Open Link in new window
    Open Link in new Tab
    Downoad Linked File
    Add Link to bookmarks
    Copy link

    but you CAN'T choose a name for the file!

    I choose " download linked file"


    It just saves the worthless link to you hard drive and you can do nothing with it. Mac will not give you the opportunity to change the file extension before you download it and after you do download it, even if you remove th.txt file extension the file is worthless.

    Please post some other kind of file for mac users. The files you are posting are worthless.

    Maybe just click the download link ? I'm sure you'll get a quick response on this.

    Hi Gigagagga,
    it´s a nuissance but there is a workaround. Download the file with safari using either ctrl-click or the right mouse button (if you have one). Save to your prefered location. Unfortuantely it adds a .txt additionally to the desired .nkp extension. Click on info (just click on the file with command-I) and look at "name and suffix". Delete the .text extension and close the info window. The Mac asks you if you really want to do that, you say "Yes".
    Voila, the resulting .nkp file works.

    Sometimes even macs behave in a peculiar way

    Ever heard of MS Internet Exporer (it's installed on every Mac)?
    And it works...

    Oh yes, that's the one the US Government warns against using, isn'it?

    The U.S. government's Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) is warning Web surfers to stop using Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) browser.

    On the heels of last week's sophisticated malware attack that targeted a known IE flaw, US-CERT updated an earlier advisory to recommend the use of alternative browsers because of "significant vulnerabilities" in technologies embedded in IE.

    "There are a number of significant vulnerabilities in technologies relating to the IE domain/zone security model, the DHTML object model, MIME-type determination, and ActiveX. It is possible to reduce exposure to these vulnerabilities by using a different Web browser, especially when browsing untrusted sites," US-CERT noted in a vulnerability note.

    The latest US-CERT position comes at a crucial time for Microsoft , which has invested heavily to add secure browsing technologies in the coming Windows XP Service Pack 2. The software giant has spent the last few months talking up the coming IE security improvements but the slow response to patching well-known -- and sometimes "critical" -- browser holes isn't sitting well with security experts.

    On discussion lists and message boards, security researchers have spent a lot of time beating the "Dump IE" drum, and the US-CERT notice is sure to lend credibility to the movement away from the world's most popular browser.

    US-CERT is a non-profit partnership between the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the public and private sectors. It was established in September 2003 to improve computer security preparedness and response to cyber attacks in the United States.

    It has been more than two weeks since Microsoft confirmed the existence on an "extremely critical" IE bug, which was being used to load adware/spyware and malware on PCs without user intervention but, even though the company hinted it would go outside its monthly security update cycle to issue a fix, the flaw remains unpatched.

    US-CERT researchers say the IE browser does not adequately validate the security context of a frame that has been redirected by a Web server. It opens the door for an attacker to exploit the flaw by executing script in different security domains.

    "By causing script to be evaluated in the Local Machine Zone, the attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running IE," according to the advisory.

    "Functional exploit code is publicly available, and there are reports of incidents involving this vulnerability."

    To protect against the flaw, IE users are urged to disable Active scripting and ActiveX controls in the Internet Zone (or any zone used by an attacker). Other temporary workarounds include the application of the Outlook e-mail security update; the use of plain-text e-mails and the use of anti-virus software.

    Surfers must also get into the habit of not clicking on unsolicited URLs from e-mail, instant messages, Web forums or internet relay chat (IRC) sessions.


    Not wishing to start any kind of war here but every single Mac user that I know personally has always dumped all MS software off their drives whenever they bought a new Mac in the past.

    And I don't think that either IE or Outlook Express comes bundled with new Macs since Apple released Safari and Mail.

    In this case, the user simply needs to Option (Alt) click the link to download it.

    Kind regards.

    Sensitive subject?
    Anyway, IE is in the application folder of every Mac as long as I can remember, (This was a deal between Steve and Bill many years ago) no body uses it since Safari is such a great browser.

    Note for Kornel: if you zip the files up before uploading them, Safari will start downloading the script and put the unpacked script on the Mac desktop (users can then drag and drop the script in the NI. Folder). This works on both (Mac and Windows) platforms.

    Acually IE ain't in 10.4 but it's no longer in development so no surprise. Safari has really taken on a life of it's own. Now to take office out of the game . . . hehe.
