Well the TechTV review of Blog ran – not that I saw it or even had my PVR (the piece of junk it is …) record it but because somebody who’d seen the TechTV demo and then downloaded Blog 4.0 wrote to me. They had a curious story since they tell me that their antivirus software (InnoculateIt) tagged Blog 4.0 as a trojan! I was pretty surprised since I have Norton AntiVirus installed on my machine and so far it has not raised any alarms about any of my files. All I can think of is that InnoculateIt detected what it thought was a viral signature in the Blog executable or the self-extracting distro (the person who wrote to me didn’t tell me which exe they were talking about …). While it is understandable, it also makes me mad because I don’t know how may people might have been turned off of Blog because of that warning :p

Incidentally, no big shake ups in the web site stats though the TechTV review did go through :p Guess not many people watch TechTV during the day or not many people liked what they saw in the review. I wish I had seen the review though … I did read the write up that they have on the TechLive site and while some of it is cobbled together from my docs there is some new stuff and opinions in there as well. Only thing is, I have no idea whether that is exactly what they showed on TV as well or whether they did something different. If anybody did see it, I’d certainly be interested to hear from you :-)
