Happy 4th Birthday, Security Fix

Today marks the fourth anniversary of the launch of Security Fix. A heartfelt "thank you" to all of our faithful readers who make this blog come alive with their thoughtful comments and participation.

I tried to explain how important this audience has become to me in an interview I did recently with It seems silly to try to paraphrase what I said, so here's a quote about you -- the reader -- from that interview.

Readers are more inclined to speak their minds, interact with others, and generally contribute to a more well-rounded discussion and story if they get a sense that the author is accountable and responsive.

I do try to be responsive. So if there is something I'm missing that you'd like to see more (or less!) of, please don't hesitate to let me know.

I've made your blog must-reading every day since I found it about 2 years ago. Thanks for being here with information I can trust and use.

Thanks for all you do here... I must have discovered you here shortly after Security Fix began. This is the blog that finally spurred me to use RSS, and now I read about 20-30 computer security-related blogs on a daily basis, many of which were mentioned in posts here.

Your blog has been a never-ending source of information and help. Most useful items have been program updates information because I turn off auto-updating. And, I would never have known about Secunia without you. Congratulations on your anniversary and may you be here for at least another four years!

Brian you should be proud. Bravo!

It's no surprise to me that your blog has reached the age of four - and I'm sure it's got many fine years ahead of it - because of the quality of the work you publish here.

It's always been interesting reading - please keep it up!

Graham Cluley, Sophos

Blessings, wonder Boy Brian. Thanks for your mentoring. I was telling you this YESTERDAY . . . but, as I was composing my comment, my Mac had a kernel panic- - - no whistling noises this time. Thanks to your column and the contributor from Tampa, this alarming kernel panic was identified in a timely fashion. . . in the SAME live session!! As a neophyte, I am now less ignorant. :-))
