              OK thanx. Never got the notice. Went to sign up, but it looks like it's for a business.

                That info/newsletter is for business customers but the DAT taking a holiday would apply to both Enterprise and Consumer products.

                  Yeah sorry about that...the holiday bit and all. I get a bit concerned when things seem amiss with my computer's protection.
