    How about security concerns? I’m assuming that a lot of the computers involved in this will be PC’s…..which means virus protection. Perhaps some instructions on the need for performing basic, periodic maintenance routines Maybe instructions for on-line dating?

    Help me out here PC users, developers, programmers… I’m a Mac user, I don’t get viruses. Tell me how it is, and how it could be for our potential clients and security, viruses… the lot. Dating, yes… nice. Maintenance routines, yes.

    How about downloading music, legal and illegal practices?
