You Jammed my browser AGAIN

by Regulus In reply to DOWNLOAD: Virus preventio ...

Everytime you give us a download in .pdf format it locks up my computer and browser until I crash it.

I have brought this to your attention previously.

PLEASE give us the option of downloading .pdf files in ZIP format so that it doesn't jam our machines!!!

Under consideration (construction)

by Bill Detwiler Editor In reply to You Jammed my browser AGA ...


Thanks for the feedback. In recent months we've tried to simplify our download process by posting PDFs in their original format instead of in a ZIP file. This removes the extra step of having to unzip the file, allowing members to more quickly access the document. It also allows members to view files on machines without a file unzip utility.

We still post some downloads as ZIP files when the download contains multiple files or is particularly large.

As we consider ways to improve TechRepublic Downloads we have considered giving members multiple download formats. Unfortunately our current content management system only allows us one format. I'm not sure if we will be able to support multiple download formats in the future, but we will certainly take your feedback into consideration.

For now, use the following Web form link to request the Virus prevention checklist via e-mail:

punish *all* policy violations...

by howard_nyc In reply to DOWNLOAD: Virus preventio ...

tough as nails -vs- creme-puff

there is nothing in between

enforcement is one of the requirements of HIPAA... in addition, no matter what industry you should get the authorization of the CEO -- yeah, the C*E*O -- to punish every violator... even CXOs... even the CEO himself (herself)...

if there are rules, then there has to be enforcement of sanctions for violation... and without consistency, enforcement is without teeth...

people will pay attention only if and...

...when the CFO's admin aide get busted for installing unapproved software

... when the son (daughter) of the CHRO (Chief Human Resources Officer) comes with his parent on Saturday and uses a company computer "just for homework", whereupon the CHRO will be asked to resign

it will take six months for people to get over themselves, then everyone will toe the line... or else
