Earlier today while working with a friend at our offices we were playing around with a large NMAP scan of the anoNet network. His computer would not open the network topology in Zenmap because of a lack of RAM so we were looking at it on another laptop with much more RAM.

I don’t typically use Windows Live Mail so even some of the more basic items are foreign to me including the fact that by default Windows Live Mail does not show the typical menu bar as you would expect in Windows XP.
