  1. Is there life an after death?? who knows.

     

    One thing is for certain you would have about as much luck proving the existence of God as providing the existence of an after life.

    No one has every truly died and come back to life to tell so I guess we'll have to wait and see when our time comes. :blink:

  2. When I was around 10 years old my dad bought the family a Commodore 64 he wasn't much of a Speccy fan unfortunately. :)

    I'm kind of glad he did though because the graphics and audio capability was way ahead of the other machines at the time.

    It was also my first computer that inspired me to take up computer programming and to dabble in some 6510/6502 assembler code.

    Sadly the poor thing was put away in a box for many years while I concentrated on other things more important like school and university.

    Then came the age of PC emulators and with clever software you could turn a lame 486 into a working Commodore 64 home computer.

    Not only that but games could now be download from the internet, games ripped from tape and save to tape with software too.

    Like others who loved their home computers I made my own small contribution the Commodore 64 community in various ways. ;)

     

    Favourite games: Wizball, Rambo First Blood Part II, Outrun, Mayhem in Monsterland, International Karate, Ghostbusters (with digitised audio), Yi Ar Kung Fu, Hyper Sports.

     

    While emulators are certainly fun to use you cannot beat having your hands around a real joystick and playing on original equipment. :lol:

  3. First of all to exploit a computer it must have something to exploit however with a fully patched system there is nothing to do apart from Denial of Service (DoS) attacks which is nothing more the petty vandalism.

    All these security scares about ID theft, rootkits are internal jobs i.e. malware running on your computer from using infected software, bad email attachments, accessing dodgy web sites (porn bait) or proxy networks to bypass restricted sites.

     

    So the way I see this it doesn't matter whether or not your Operating System or router supports IPv6 it won't change the security risk of your computer the only issue would really concerning software based firewalls and using a direction LAN connection.

    If your computer sits behind a router it's NAT would still provide you with the best protection for incoming traffic with or without IPv6.

  4. Protection against what??

     

    Network routers provides a level of protection due to the way NAT works (network address translation).

    Unless you have port forwarding rules defined all incoming connections would be discarded IPv4 or IPv6.

    Also if your router or Operating System lacks IPv6 support there is nothing to interact with IPv6 packets.

  5. You're looking at false readings probably because the sensor is broken or Speccy doesn't read the data correctly.

    Typically a motherboard should run slightly cooler than the CPU or GPU because it dissipates heat a lot better.

    Furthermore being a laptop with a confined space you would expect similar temperatures for MoBo, CPU and GPU.
