I. News from the FOUNDER
Well I have saved the best for last, but if you stopped reading this newsletter after the funnies section, never mind. I just wanted to thank you for being either a customer or just someone who was interested in learning about technology. I want to invite you to look at the website since it has gone through an EXTREME MAKEOVER! We have more information, easier ways to contact us, and better resources for you coming in 2005, like an interactive chat room, online polls, the expansion off the KCC mall, and more surprises I have not even thought of yet. My family and I want to wish you a blessed holiday and may you stay safe and happy through 2005. Remember at Kingdom Computers, we treat you like ROYALTY!

II. Tip of the month
How to Access and Transfer Local Files during a Remote Desktop Session Want to copy files between your local computer and the Remote Desktop host computer when you're connected to an XP Pro machine via the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)? Here's how:

1. When you connect to the remote computer using the Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) client, click the Options button on the RDC logon dialog box. 2. Click the Local Resources tab. 3. Check the Disk Drives checkbox under Local devices. 4. Click the Connect button at the bottom of the dialog box. This enables drive redirection. If you don't do this, you might receive an error message "Cannot copy file: Cannot read from the source file or disk" when you try to copy and paste information between the local computer and the Remote Desktop host, or the Paste command may be unavailable.

III. The SPYWARE Strikes Back! By Eddie L Hines
Microsoft and the big hardware manufacturers are more and more confronted with helpdesks being flooded with problems related to spyware. It's the next Internet Plague. A few years ago it was spam, and now it's spyware. Since over 50% of U.S. households are connected via broadband, getting infected with spyware has taken on epidemic proportions. Spyware now has (as they call it) reached critical mass, and is actually worse than viruses. Why? There is money in it. Biiiiig money as a matter of fact. Spyware is a generic term for many different kinds of malware. Some are fairly friendly like tracking cookies, but there is malicious code out there that really has no other motive than to steal. That might be your identity, or the use of your computer, and/or your social security and credit card info. In many cases, it is now organized cyber crime that does their nefarious work via internet sites in Russia or Asia. If you see pop-ups you did not ask for, or your browser gets hijacked, or your PC is slowing down and your CPU is busy inexplicably, you have a good chance your PC is "owned" by someone other than you. Computers that are "always on" are now often used to send spam, send viruses, or are parts of a network of "zombies" that are controlled by the bad guys and used to attack another site. There is currently freeware that will detect and delete this malware, but what you really are going to need is a product that detects, deletes and protects! We are looking at a beta of a tool like this, and we like it a lot. It's more and more necessary to get yourself a product like this. You could call it a "spy-wall". For the moment, do not buy anything yet, we'll tell you how that beta is behaving the next few weeks and we might recommend a really good solution in a short while. MORE

IV. Spiritual Word of the Month “Read All of It”
Read: Psalm 119:97-112 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. —2 Timothy 3:16 Bible In One Year: Ezekiel 47-48; 1 John 3 Some Christian families follow the practice of reading through the whole Bible. After evening meals, they read a chapter or two. They read from Genesis to Revelation, skipping nothing. Even the genealogies with their hard-to-pronounce names are read aloud. Read God's Word straight through and you'll begin to see the unfolding plan of God's redeeming grace, and that you were the object of His love even before you were born. Do it once, and you'll want to do it again. —Vernon Grounds Oh, may these heavenly pages be My ever dear delight, And still new beauties may I see, And still increasing light. —Steele Those who only sample the Bible never acquire a taste for it
