  1. Almost the same day as Thomas Edison's 164th Birthday http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2380114,00.asp Plus Abraham Lincoln's Birthday tomorrow.
  2. Thanks.
  3. I like SpeedFan http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php
  4. No problem with my Windows Live Mail and I have update KB2454826 installed.
  5. Please read: Blocking Unwanted Parasites with a Hosts File http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm It works with all browsers. See this review https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3145/reviews Firefox add-ons are much more complicated to maintain and some conflict with each other.
  6. I think I'll just sit on the couch and watch TV as no matter what I do I'll damage something.
  7. What is the Difference Between DSL and ADSL? http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-difference-between-dsl-and-adsl.htm Where is says
  8. Not many people know the difference between baud and bps. With quadrature modulation you can send many more bits on a baud. http://sattlers.org/mickey/tech/help/baud-v-bps.html I worked with enginers that developed the 56K bps modem for IBM in Raleigh N.C. and Bill Gates got a hissy fit at that time with IBM for OS/2 so he decided to develop Windows further and as the saying goes The rest is history. Who would have thought you can get 6MB on twisted, copper pairs with DSL.
  9. I think that the Gutmann 35-pass method is overkill and only needed if you want to get rid of the hard drive. I agree with CWB to shut down all open programs especially the browser. I usually only use CCleaner before I shut down the system.
  10. I feel your pain. I had to use OS/2 Warp Communication Manager to set up those 300baud modems. This will be familliar: The Sound of dial-up Internet
  11. I don't use Firefox but I do use IE8 and I do not know why Finjan has not updated for the latest Firefox. Whatever security browser extension you choose is a matter of preference but I do know that Finjan Secure Browsing works well on both IE8 and IE9. For some reason I have an aversion to anything from Norton(Symantec).
  12. Plus it only takes 5 minutes to pack and not 5 days to make up my mind what I want to take.
  13. It sure supports Windows 7 with IE9. I have not tried Browser Defender but I'll give it a try. Added: It really slowed down my IE8 on my XP Pro system so I removed it.
  14. Neither. I have used both and found that McAfee SiteAdvisor is not well maintained and even rates sites with known malware as safe. WOT is driven by user biases and knowledge. I prefer Finjan SecureBrowsing from M86 Security Labs http://www.m86security.com/labs
  15. Does it come with memory upgrades that enable it to instantly recall every conversation you have that will help you stay out of the doghouse?
