    Cordless Drill Recommendations

    Hi The wife of a friend has asked me to pick out a cordless drill for his upcoming birthday (top spend of £170). I am not sure what I should be looking at. Is voltage (18 v 14.4) critical or would battery size be more important? I have been looking at a couple from Makita...

    Invisible Latch?

    Safari users beware

    Hi Andy I think the zdnet article made it quite clear that the users were given a local account (at least the revised version). The undelying issue is simply that the complexity of modern OSs and the skill of hackers mean that everyone should be security concious whatever their platform...

    Safari users beware

    Not at all, a correctly configured router should stop most attempts to break in "uninvited" (if you knowingly or unknowingly install some dodgy software then that is another matter). I don't think Mac users need to be particularly worried at the moment anyway, as the few known exploits around...

    Mac Virus/Worm

    Safari users beware

    Mac attacks seem to be comming thick and fast at the moment - 3 in the last 2 weeks. No where near Windows scales but a worrying trend. The latest vulnerability is in Safari and users may want to take the precautions detailed here until a fix is out. Alan

    Mac Virus/Worm

    Chisel Sharpening

    Hi All What would be the best way to flatten the backs and sharpen a bunch of new chisels? I have red/green DMT, an 800 grit Waterstone and a 6000 grit waterstone at my disposal. The chisels and stones are new and I have no previous tool sharpening experience so sorry for the vagueness of the...
