Comment A vote for WSUS (Score 1) 288

WSUS is the way to go. I've used WSUS in a lot of AD domain environments, but you don't need a domain to deploy WSUS: With WSUS you can cherry-pick and approve updates individually. You can also easily write auto-approval rules for precisely what you're looking for (If update is of type "Security Update", then Approve).

Comment Windows Live Sync (Score 1) 421

Live Sync does a fair job of syncing folders in Windows (sorry) hosts. Whenever both computers have internet access, the folders sync. Live ID required (again, sorry.) Few limits on data (no files larger than 4GB, no more than 20,000 or so folders?)

Live Mesh is a similar Microsoft offering, but also give you web access to your files and stores a copy on the cloud. Sadly, there is a 5GB limit on total data.


Fish Can Count to Four 103

Khemist writes "Fish can count, according to scientists, who have found that North American mosquito fish have the ability to count up to four. Previously it was known that fish could tell big shoals from small ones, but researchers have now found that they have a limited ability to count how many other fish are nearby. This means that they have similar counting abilities to those observed in apes, monkeys and dolphins and humans with very limited mathematical ability."
