[Dshield] Ceterum censeo

Yesterday 16th, all but the Symantec one worked fine on double clicking the
link (from here, Guyana - South America) and that wouldn't work even with a
cut and paste of the first line and hand entering the last few characters
(it wouldn't cut and paste complete!!!) to give the full URL (gave the usual
Symantec 'File not Found - looking for something at Symantec' page)

However on trying again today (about 18.30 GMT Tuesday 17th ) the f-secure
and symantec links work fine (hand completing the symantec one) but neither
of the security focus ones work! (The europe.f-secure link also works fine)

'Curiouser and curiouser'


Love your quotes, Peter!
