Anything I find interesting about Microsoft Access that isn't large enough to put on its own page as well as any updates to my website or the Auto FE Updater. Also links to blog postings and articles I feel would be of interest to developers.
There might be a more widely used term than scum ware but this suffices for me. Sun Java just asked to install an update and, among other screens, gave me the following:

It is unfortunate that it's difficult to dump Java. Scum ware is an appropriate term. I've called that sort of thing AdCrap, others call it CrapWare.

No doubt we'll remember the bad taste this Java left.
