    Someone with a sense of humor has either registered or hijacked the
    domain TrustworthyComputing.com, and is using it to refer Web surfers
    to a vast archive of news stories covering Microsoft's dismal record
    in, well, trustworthy computing.
    We may recall Chairman Gates using the phrase with initial caps (as if
    preparing to trademark it) in a recent memo ordering the Redmond rank
    and file to begin taking security seriously.
    The domain resolves to, the home of Zensoft Games, but
    it's set to re-direct surfers to the Google archive.
    Thanks to billg for bringing this to our attention. You know who you
