    Talking A pipe dream

    I know this is a pipe dream, but here goes. Everybody contain the laughter.

    A truly secure server application. So clients don't call all the time. Saying "Our server is messed up" only to find it is because they did'nt update it, patch it, or left somthing open internaly or externaly.

    I know this is impossible as long as MS dominates. But, getting clients to switch from MS is like pulling an elephant out of a gnats as$%$^%%$^%. LOL

    I'll think of more later...
    A cheap hard drive (suitable for home use, at least) with an external faceplate with a little "Read only/Normal" switch on it. If you want to see what that weird attachment does, just flip the switch, and it becomes *physically* impossible for the drive to write data to itself. I can see so many applications of this. Much more convenient than running a webserver off a CD drive too, because changes don't involve re-burning everything.

    I've fallen in love with the idea Totally unwritable drives, unless the crackers manage to write software to emit radio waves that reprogram the hardware circuits of the drive.

    (If the drive already exists, let me know!)
