  1. I remember before when the leak test was announced and BlackIce didn't pass it, and they made a new version that blocked the leaktest process/file so people was led to believe it passed the leak-test when it actually didn't since it was hardcoded to block the leaktest. iptables is firewalling for real men.
  2. Thats one thing I dislike about Windows, some software just cant be uninstalled. =/ It would be nice to be able to uninstall Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player, Windows Messenger, Outlook Express, etc. Its your computer, you should be able to choose what is installed on it, and what is not. An operating system should operate according to your wishes, not its own or somebody else.
  3. I good idea for doing credit card purchases might be to boot up a clean LiveCD of Linux. Since a CD is read-only, and you don't need to mount the harddisk, nothing can be written to the system.
  4. Thats dumb. So if you break the speed limit, they should take your bed? If you shoplift they take your computer? If you trespass they take your TV?
  5. Before when an new island appeared due to volcanic eruption on international waters, I believe you could claim the island your own and declare independence if you found it first. Essentially having your own small country or micronation. But ever since Sealand, I don't think thats possible anymore, laws changed.
  6. ZOMG! Who would want to steal your MySpace account? lol! MySpace is the dumbest place ever, so much dumb retarded kids who cant think or spell. If retards could fly, MySpace would be an airport. PS. Samy is my hero!
  7. My e-mail client doesn't open images.
  8. Yeah, the weather is alot more unstable than it was 5-10 years ago.
  9. Hello. Of course you don't need to uninstall Internet Explorer 7.0 before installing Mozilla Firefox. They're two completely separate products and you can have both installed at the same time, as a matter of fact, you can even use both at the same time. Mozilla Firefox is a great browser, I really recommend it! And yes, Mozilla Firefox does have a phishing filter.

    Doubt it was CCleaner, sounds more like a hardware problem.
  11. It appears that threads, especially those criticizing CCleaner or explaining flaws and other "unwanted threads" suddenly and silently disappears. Silence the little people. Uphold the mask. Nothing is wrong. Everything is alright. Nothing for you to see here sir, please move along.
  12. Antivir is now known as Avira. I've tried it, its okay, but the update method could be better. Another decent antivirus software is AVG Free.
  13. Most of my software I install are free software, licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL), or other FSF-certified or OSI-certified free software licenses, so I don't have to worry much about crap hidden in licenses.
  14. Yes, it sounds damaged, take it back and get replacement on warranty or try get your money back. MyFLASH? Never heard of. Get an well established brand like Kingston or something.
  15. I as Andavari recommends Eraser. Free software is a more suitable term for Eraser than freeware. Freeware is a term applied to software that is free to distribute. Free software grants the user more freedom than freeware. Eraser is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) which makes it free software/open source software, which means not only are you allowed to freely distribute it, but you also are given the source code and the right to; * The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0). * The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this. * The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2). * The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements to the public, so that the whole community benefits (freedom 3). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
  16. There are tons of free web hosts. Most suck though. Alot of them very low space quota, puts ads (some even frames and popups), are slow, and very limited bandwidth. Geocities is probably one of the worst ever. dhost.info gives free webhosting with 100 mb space, PHP and MySQL, FTP. There are webhost comparing sites such as; http://www.free-webhosts.com/ http://www.freewebspace.net/
  17. Or better yet, "Don't click on any e-mail attachments at all". Never open attachments from people you don't know or people not on your contact list. Never open the attachment if its executable eg (.exe, .bat, .cmd, .vbs, .com, .scr, .pif, etc). Beware of attachments named "picture.jpg.exe" instead of "picture.jpg", etc. Always scan the attachments for virus.
  18. I recommend this one too. It is very good. I use it when comparing configuration files, comparing source code, creating patches, etc.
  19. Those kinds of firewalls feels kinda toyish. I prefer a little bit complex firewalls which offers the possibility for in-depth configuration and defining own rules so you can tune it how you want it, and get real tight security. ps. iptables is the best thing since sliced bread.
  20. I tried out Songbird, think it was a nightly build or something. The skin wasn't so good, it was very black and the borders and toolbars was black and so was the inside of the windows too, so it was too black with few good contrasts that separate the interface. But it was a rather cool app, you could easily use it to quickly find alot of different music and listen to that. It had lots of like websites with free music, and podcasts, and online radio stations, and stuff.

  22. In Linux you don't even need any serial. Don't know how it is with Mac OS X.
