Never heard of that before. Perhaps it's a new way they're trying to get past spam filters?

Good for you for being a good sport about it.
It's pleasant to realize that not all people are complete *******s, and that there might be some hope for the human race yet.
So yeah, Merry...

It'd be nice if they did come out a bit more often, yeah. I'm always in the market for new material, anyway.

Out of curiousity, have you made any sort of income from your computer-related things?
My parents didn't take my interest all that seriously until I'd shown them that I'd gained some tactile,...

To restate my views from elsewhere: Nah. No reason to insist on regulation. It's just keeping people from doing themselves in, and the vast majority of those who would be maimed or killed by...

Never said I was superior...just pointing out that I'm not as clueless as some people seem to think. And I'm wearing my iron underpants, so as not to 'catch' anything unfortunate. I admit it was a...

Yeah, that might turn out messy.

Hey, no need to make fun of me 'cuz I wear glasses. *smirk*
And yes. Those who don't want to wear seatbelts will ignore those laws, and do all those things. They will not think of...

Someone seems to have gotten up on the wrong side o' th' bed this mornin'
Well, let's see if there's anything in there worth replying to.
Respect for your elders, lad.

The smart people should know to stay off the roads on Friday and Saturday nights. *smirk* Yeah, the point about the kids is valid, but keep in mind that grandma's already reproduced, so her demise...

I bow to the great Negative's superior experience. *wink*

Eh, call me sadistic--but it's my personal conviction that legislating common sense is a Bad Idea. If people are going to be stupid, and they die on account of their stupidity, that raises the...

With all due respect, seatbelt laws *are* stupid. Those who don't wear seatbelts will just ignore 'em. Legislating common sense never works.

Make sure that you enable WEP on the wireless router, for one. That's going to be your biggest security hole.
Other'n that, there shouldn't be any other major issues. Just make sure the wireless...

Most of my contributions were via the old #antionline IRC channel. I never really got involved with the site itself.
And yeah, you wouldn't really know who I was as I'd more or less stopped what...

No, don't know you; you came after my time. Unless I have some bastard children I don't know about.
Negative, MsMittens, hogfly, and some of the others of that time...

Admittedly, the concept of a virus going around and fixing vulnerabilities is interesting, and has a lot to recommend it.
It also has many dangers--those too have been mentioned.
December 2nd, 2005, 08:34 PM
It's both, really. Yes, the software manufacturer ought to write it so that the software does not *need* to be run from an admin account.
However, I hardly think that Microsoft is entirely...

No reason why you couldn't.
As for changing ports, be sure to change the settings on both the sending *and* the receiving end. Otherwise things could get a little too interesting.

To expand upon d0pp's points--
If Windows had a sane [ read "Unix-like" ] user administration system then most of these problems would be relatively moot.
There are some reasons why people...

That's one of the major difficulties with the current legal system--the pittance paid to the jurors is so far below even minimum wage that nobody has any impetus to want to stay as a juror.

Alright. A few words on Gravity.
First, to address a few questions in Neel's post.
Gravity does not 'fade out', per se.
Gravity is the force of attraction between two masses. It is...

I *know* I was suffering from withdrawal......the net just isn't the same without AO there, y'know?
