    It’s ironic that if you’re running under LUA, the chat room doesn’t work. No message, no nothing, it just sits there. Works great if you’re an admin (it needs to install an ActiveX control), but clearly nobody tested it under LUA!

    BTW, Mike have you noticed that if you’re running LUA all the time, you are never notified that patches have been downloaded and need to be installed? With the window of exploitation shrinking so quickly these days, it seems like this should be addressed.


  2. Michael Howard says:

    Yeah – you have to download the ActiveX control first. Frankly, this doesn’t worry me too much – I really don’t want users installing full-trust/unmanaged code!

    As for running as LUA and patches – I’m running XPSP2, so I *AM* notified 🙂

    Awesome – glad to hear that’s been fixed in SP2.
