~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2. DOC JAVASCRIPT: JScript .NET, Part XII: Exception Handling

If at first you don't succeed, try...catch again. Our JScript .NET freight train rolls on, this time with a focus on the graceful catching and handling of those annoying program errors. By Yehuda Shiran and Tomer Shiran.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 3. UPDATE: Background Image Links

A light and tasteful background graphic may be just the touch you need to spice up your next project. Our updated collection of background graphic links is your gateway to thousands of downloadable borders, tiles, and textures specifically for use on web pages.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 4. FEATURE: Spam, and what you can do about it

If you're like me you get a lot of email. Problem is, a lot of it these days is spam, or unsolicited email. Eudora and Outlook do offer some partial solutions (Moodwatch for one), but the spammers keep finding ways around these filters. Enter add-on spam products.

Here are two products that filter spam, Spam Assassin and Spamfire. Spam Assassin is targeted at UNIX users and Spamfire, from Matterform Media is a Mac application that claims a 98% success rate. A Windows version is in the works. For more information goto:

If you know of more spam products that you like, let me know.
