It probably won't slow your system down. A good product, made by good people..
A seven hour terror update, is not effective. At least not for anyone living in a "high value" metro area such as DC, and NY. But remember Americans, we need to keep our eyes open; that's the best preventative measure.
Now if there was a hack that would allow me to change the threat level & scare my friends, that would be better. All in all, I'm very satisfied with it.
this would be a really cool program if it updated every 5 or 10 minutes... every 7 hours just makes it utterly useless...
This is a very simple program. Doesn't crash, takes up very little space and resources. From what I can see, the only negative comments come from anti-Bush people who are politicizing this rather than seeing it for what it is...a little trinket program for fun.
I love this program, I dont live in America, so the "threat" issue does not apply directly to me.
It is an excellent excuse though "the threat monitor has gone to red, screw working i'm off to watch the news"..........
Come on! Even Bush himself says he lacks info on terror attacks!
but i dont understand other comments.
Has the procust done something in the politial arena to warrent an attack?
No. If you want to know the threat level, it provides the information.
If you dont want to know it, then dont download it. Keep your political views to yourself.
The good news: as far as I can tell it's rock solid stable and uses minimal memory and internet bandwidth.
The bad news: It performs a completely useless function. Instead of Homeland Security Threat Monitor, they could call it the "How Much Bush Wants to Use Terrorism Paranoia to Get Re-elected Monitor". 1. If you actually feel you need real-time notification of changes in the ol' Paranoia Meter I'm sure between news, TV, human interaction (if any), etc you'll probably be able to find out. Or just go to their website every now and then. It's kind of sad that people take this kind of obvious rubbish so seriously. It doesn't even account for obvious gradations in danger based on location... Southern Iowa is probably a bit less likely to get nailed by crazed terrorists with anthrax than, say, New York. "Gee Granny, I'd really love to go for a walk with you but there's a little icon in the bottom of my computer screen and it just changed color so I'm gonna go hide in the basement instead despite the fact that we live in a corn field that no terrorist would bother looking sideways at."
But at least it doesn't crash. And I suppose it gets some credit for being incredibly easy to use. Now if only it did something useful.
what a waste of bytes
