sigh... my windowsupdate is tired, can't it take a little break?

so there it is, Microsoft products support the gopher protocol in most modern versions of IE, as well as Proxy 2 and ISA 2000, blah. No fixes that I know of yet, and m$ made it clear that there will be no fixes on products that are considered "unsupported" older versions.

The temp fix they have of course is to block port 70 traffic... but, how will all my other gopher traffic manage? I'm just happy I don't have to block important ports like 7 and 79

aside from my belittlement, this is actually quite interesting, considering it effects every internet user that has no clue what a port is, running IE/Outlook/etc
