    Google Announces A Patent Purchase Promotion

    They provide nearly everything for free, so long as you don't mind some advertizing that exists anyway. You can pay a reasonable fee for upgraded service and special privileges. They are certainly spying on you, but they make it fairly transparent and give you opt-out methods for the most...

    When Video Game Trolling Is A Good Thing

    yea that was meant to go along with the post; not at the post... the positive of trolling, if nothing else, is to teach someone, who doesn't know any better, a valuable real life lesson, that you should not rely on the kindness of humanity for your own happiness; you will forever be unhappy...

    When Video Game Trolling Is A Good Thing

    how sad and puny your existence must be if the internet upsets you so much.The guy is enjoying himself on the internet; good on him. If you are not enjoying yourself on the internet, its very easy to exit the internet, or go anywhere else on the internet. The world is what you make it.

    Home Exchange 2007 server port 25 blocked

    *some* ISPs will not delegate a reverse PTR to a residential address, but not all. Its up to the individual ISP. The original statement was that you cannot/should not *ever* run a mail server from a residential IP, but that isnt true; its just up to your particular ISP, whether or not they...

    Home Exchange 2007 server port 25 blocked

    This. As long as your ISP makes it possible to use port 25, all public IP addresses are otherwise equal to any other. Being inside a 'residential' block of IPs does not get you an auto-blacklist... only if your server or network is misbehaving or misconfigured, which is your own...

    Fortinet vs Watchguard WiFi

    Watchguard's more advanced firewall features require you to be intimately familiar with them. This problem just sounds like lack of familiarity... you just have to make your own proxy policy set for your own particular traffic needs. Yes, its more work than less, and if you have never done it...

    Bing Will Predict the Entire NCAA Tournament Bracket

    If they wanted to do something actually impressive, they would predict the bracket in private, encrypt it, distribute it publicly, and then after the game was played in real life, they would distribute the encryption keys so that we could determine how close the prediction was. Distributing...

    Without Drugs, What's The Point of Bitcoin?

    yea, it seems that no one in here actually knows how bitcoin works.... Yes, each transaction in the block chain is unique and readily and permanently traceable; which is by design. You have to have some proof that the coin I sent you is an actual bitcoin, and not just a number I made up...

    what?! you mean to say that didnt learn anything from watching a 450LB, 70-IQ hillbilly feed her 5 year old child 10,000 calories a day and enter her in beauty pageants? oh I'm sorry, I thought this was Amurica...

    IT Workers Of The World Unite!

    Its faux news.... If they had their wish, all non whites would be in jail, the DoD would have 95% of the US budget, we would build a 50 foot high fence around the entire country and then all the whites could play baseball and eat apple pie, just like in their dreams. meanwhile, the rest of the...

    Comcast Sued For Turning Home Wi-Fi Routers Into Public Hotspots

    This is actually causing real world problems at some of my clients... Comcast is claiming that they cannot disable the wifi built in, and our spectrum is already so congested that adding 4 more beacons (one public, one private, in each 2.4 and 5ghz spctrum) at the location caused other WiFi...
