This is a very import court case that Microsoft is fighting that effects not only Microsoft but AOL ( Netscape) and all other browser and ever using of the Internet. Patent office to re-examine Eolas patent
First Read this article from Windows & .NET Mag, Microsoft Browser Patent Retrial Bid Falls Flat
If the patent office does not revoke it and Eolas continues to win then plug-ins will be removed from the browser in IE and then soon Netscape and all the others unless they make a deal. The web would be set back at least 5 years.
Here is a link to the patent, http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect2=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&d=PALL&RefSrch=yes&Query=PN%2F5838906
The company holds some other patents which are interesting http://www.eolas.com/technology.html
Here are some related storys from CNET:

It is a new year and this is the first log of 2004, I would have loged some things yesterday but the power supply in the web server failed and so the server was down until around 5PM. I will try and remember what I wanted to type yesterday but then again I am getting old and might not remember.
If you want to look at a paper on iis security for a internet/extrnet/intranet app check out this article from MS , http://www.microsoft.com/italy/net/business/ netarchitect/SecNet.pdf .
I found yesterday a link I had been looking for for awhile to an open source ASP help desk app, http://www.liberum.org/ and in finding it discoverd a open source ASP app that does client, project, task, timecard entry and reporting it also includes news, a calendar, a document repository, employee directory, discussion forum, surveys, and much more , http://diggersolutions.com/products_ios.asp
