So, how big

So, how big did you say that app needed to be? Radsoft Labs knocks a Windows DNS client down from 3.5MB to 7*KB*. [Via RISKS Digest.]

Yeah, but at 7 KB it has all the same flaws as the windows app. I say, make it a full 30 KB and improve it. :)

What the hell does all that extraneous crap do? Pulsate subliminal messages into your brain via your retina, using the patterns of light to access your brain like a computer and turn you into a drone-slave of Gates? Or just sit there like fat in a burrito?

And RISKS had their previous bloatware article about RegClean from May 1999 authored by RA Downes at Radsoft.

here's the stat's on the resolver on my laptop:
rmiller@tessier~$ ls -l /usr/bin/fwhois
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root bin 5232 Oct 21 1999 /usr/bin/fwhois*

of course, this doesn't include anything half as cool as a dialogue box.
