Virgin Media to issue firmware update after Superhub slows to crawl

You can use your own hardware.

You can use your own router, you just have to set up the DMZ option in the "superhub" config, give your internal router the relevant IP address and Bang, you are albe to connect to all the fancy interwebby stuff through your own kit!

One thing I had to do to get any form of working stable connection was to turn off the added feature of "Flood Protection" for some reason it likes to limit DNS connections and renders your connection all but useless when its enabled!

Black Helicopters


I am amazed that the MOD has not hushed this one up to use it for their new rail guns. Multiple MKVA discharging in seconds should really give them new guns a kick ;)

Black Helicopter for obvious reasons!

Operating systems are old and busted

OS Virtualisation

To a degree this can already be done.

All the virtualisation products that have been discussed here are hardware based / hypervisor products.

What about Virtuozzo (for windows) or OpenVZ for linux?

They virtualise the operating system. You only install one OS (on the host) then virtualise the OS components that are required for the virtual environment.



Just my 2p worth!
