  1. The Fed gov't today opened a new online internet protection
    website.

    http://onguardonline.gov/index.html

    Info about spyware, viruses, phishing, protecting
    personal info, and I believe some applications to
    do so.

    I would have thought that the registration would not have been from a .NET site.

    rules for the .GOV domain are found at dotgov

    Definitely useless for non-US people.
