...to admit my shame.
Sometimes I have re-bought items I know I already own because finding them in the loft full of junk is a daunting task. Cables, little widgets, connection converters etc. I know for certain I have at least 1 or 2 of them but a 30 second ordering spree on eBay will yield the item with less effort.
Someone please make me feel better and tell me i'm not the only person that does this? :s
HP Microserver (1st Gen is fine) + 4 Port 1GB nic + Sophos UTM = Excellent home solution that's updated by Sophos incredibly regularly.
Sophos UTM Home License can be registered for free. You even get a 12 endpoint Anti-Virus license that works on workstation and server OS types too. Ideal for a home lab with servers or just a home with a few machines. Everything is logged, highly configurable and also has a great IDS. Downside is the learning curve. I.T techies are alright deploying these but home users with web browsing only skills would struggle. Thankfully I fall into the former category. Never looked back since going with UTM though, purely due to the frequency of the updates provided.
Pah, but i'm bored with all the emulated hardware after playing with it for years on years so now i've started buying all the originals right when everyone is going for the minis.
It gives me a special nostalgia glow that emulators or emulated hardware simply can't compete with.
If you need me i'll be watching 80/90s TV adverts on YouTube.
Sure, having our data torn apart and inspected is better for all our sakes, because obviously, they'll only use it for illegal file sharing right? No to inspect any other data, i.e. personal data being transmitted too and frow like CV's etc?
Get real and stop supporting the 1984 culture! Look at the bigger picture!
..... The astronaut that steps out of the module onto the surface first will at least get his line right:
"It's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind!"
Maybe it's just me, but isn't man and mankind one in the same thing. Sure the line should have read:
"It's one small step for A MAN......"
What a dumbass armstrong was. Obviously NASA couldn't provide him with a pocket sized thesaurous or oxford english.
PARIS: Because she has a great pair of solid rocket boosters!
You all claim not to want to trade insults with 13 year olds, yet you will happily trade childish insults here! Little bit of a double standard happening. Each to their own.
Personally, I have a 360 & a PS3. They are both fun and more or less on par! Do you buy a console beause it is fun or to use the concept to beat the next man over the head!
Grow up! Children, mother is coming to spank your arses if you don't behave yourselves!
Hey, personally I am not too worried about this. You can do everything this service offers with the right voip account (cheaper too) and some inexpensive or even free (Asterisk PBX) software. Any criminal intent on this kind of deception is already doing it and has probably been doing it for at least 4 years.
The service is too expensive for any tom, dick or harry using it as a serious money making tool. As stated, you can do this much cheaper with a wee bit of googling and a couple of hours on your hands.
All I see this service being used for is the "Hey, i've just murdered your family and stolen their house! Only Joking!!!" kind of gag!
Don't worry people. Anybody who reads Reg has at least enough common sense to know when they are probably being duped. If anyone rings asking for your credit card details, regardless of what number it comes from tell them to bog off! Caller ID is no proof that the call is genuine and never should be used that way!
One thing I will warn though is: PINS on your mobile phone voicemail systems as some do use caller ID to verify the subscriber, but we all have PINS set already! Right??
Well, whats next? This is a problem due to them cutting costs and not upgrading their infrastructure to keep up with demand. Also, it is caused by the sudden upsurge in availability of cloned cable modems that I see so often at our local computer fair. Once again, punishment to the innocent is dished out leaving the real culprits to carry on regardless.
