So what can we do to buff up while still maintaining our geeky persona? How can we get fit, while utilising our god given talents as nerds to make the experience fun and interesting?

Bypass MSN Messenger Anti Virus Check

Windows Live Messenger, or “MSN” as it is still known by most users is undoubtedly one of the most popular IM clients in the world. With Version 2009 a host of new features have been added, some of which we like; others less so. One of the most annoying changes is requirement to have certain file types scanned by an antivirus package before you can send or receive them.
