  1. I don’t quiet like the new update(v8), Though they have many more free options , I tried disabling one of them, and because of this the sys-tray icon always shows a warning. Reminds me of the windows auto-update icon. V7 and anything that came before was so peaceful.

  2. @ajay I couldn’t agree more. I love AVG but I hate the new update. The link checker takes forever. I was thinking about buying it but not if the pro version is anything like this.

  3. Agreed. I’m trying to figure out what to recommend to all my non-mac friends now. AntiVir is pretty decent, I guess.

    Comodo is still the only one allowed for corporate usage.

  4. PS, I’m a different David Gagne.

  5. I don’t know if I can handle 2 david gagnes on one site. And neither are the .com.

I'll never share your email address and it won't be published.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
