I was chatting on the phone to a friend of mine about general 'geek' stuff, and we were discussing the uses of dotMac. We cam to the conclusion that it is useful if you are syncing multiple Macs, but a waste if you just have one machine, especially a laptop. Then he brought up the point that dotMac gives you Virex, and then we remembered that Mac OS X has yet to get any virus. At that point I had a revelation, a new way to describe the usefulness of Virex or Norton to Mac OS X. I think it so witty that I have included it in my sig. (Reprinted for this thread so that it will still be here in case I change my sig later). Using an antivirus program like Virex or Norton on a Mac is like wearing a condom when you masterbate, it just gets in the way!
