    Ex 07: Messages Delayed

    Straight and to the point: messages to a domain are delayed. In the outbound queue the error shows that the "Primary Target responded 421 4.2.1 Unable to Connect".... Note that responded part, seems to verify comms work. HOWEVER I cannot do a "telnet their.ip.here 25"- connect failed...

    Keeping yourself logged in.

    Ahhh OK. That works, too. I can't put mine to sleep because then I can't access it with LogMeIn if I ever needed to.

    AKM Antivirus 2010 Pro

    If it's at work: nobody cares. Universally, people in any industry anywhere think IT people do nothing... They don't care about your time. It's a hobby, right? LOL I remember a story here once a "friend of a friend" called up asking for computer help. The response was "Sure- your husband is a...

    Keeping yourself logged in.

    Just at work? I'm in that habit at home. Honestly, it's a good habit :D Because you can't bypass the Windows signon without having to reboot the machine. And when you reboot the machine, the HD gets un-mounted and then it's encrypted again, requiring a password. Else if you leave it logged on...

    House networked with single CAT5E cable

    Hmmm... Odd... T-Mobile was one of the first people that had this kind of thing, I know they have it. But if that's not an option then that's out. Kindof a bummer. I do not miss landlines at all. Most people I talk to rarely use theirs, and they "keep it for DSL" or something (little do...

    House networked with single CAT5E cable

    You don't understand. You can live in an area with 0 coverage, and then get this little "hotspot" box from T-Mobile... And it gives you cellular signal inside your house. Kindof like a wifi hotspot, but for cell signal. What it does is it sends the voice and data out through the internet...

    How Does your Company deal with Client Emails

    Could be, do you just move the ORIGINAL email there then? Because for one issue you might have a dozen replies... You don't want to count a dozen emails on one issue. But yea, I've always liked that Public Folder thing... Previous company I was at didn't like that method because it wasn't...

    House networked with single CAT5E cable

    Perhaps a repeater from the Cell Carrier would be a good investment? They might even be able to get that for FREE if they complain how bad the signal is and that they might be looking at going to another company... Generally what those do is use your internet connection to create a cellular...

    How Does your Company deal with Client Emails

    Well, keep in mind ease of use for the users as well... Probably want something transparent to them. Unless you use some sort of contact manager and make them put notes IE: "5/10/10, Sent Chris pricing on Weapon 11". I really have no idea though, never done anything like this short of the...

    House networked with single CAT5E cable

    First thing: do they really need phones? Most people just use cells nowadays. And if they HAVE to have phones- maybe they don't need it in every room. Maybe a VoIP solution would work. As for the patch panel... you COULD just crimp ends onto them and plug them directly into the switches if...

    QFT. Now, on my work machine, or any other computer that isn't mine... I log out. But yea, on my personal laptop: it's encrypted and I lock the OS when I'm not using it... So I leave that stuff enabled and use the Remember Me features. You could do the same thing in XP if you ran under...

    AKM Antivirus 2010 Pro

    QFT I also trust my experience as well... MBam will nuke practically anything. And with ease. I don't understand the whole "remotely" part of it though. Install MBam, update, scan, reboot: done. Should be removable remotely just fine. :D Yea... It kindof is a great example of how much...

    Windows Registry

    Even reading the quote you're trying to advocate against Windows isn't helping you. Again- the "application" is at fault here. There's nothing wrong with the registry. A few things: 1) UAC helped. Alot. Again, if an App needs to write to system-level places, UAC shows up. This has forced...

    Newegg

    That argument really doesn't work against Amazon. Amazon is huge AND does excellent. I think it has more to do with your leadership focusing on customers. When you focus on customers- you staff up (enough staff to handle your customers), and worry about keeping customers happy than the bucks...

    Looking for a solid router that'll last at least 10 years w/o problems

    Well, fact is most of the home-grade routers (like the WRT54G, etc) just aren't that beefy. Even if you enable QOS, the router just doesn't have enough beef in it to handle that much stuff. Hence my suggestion if the OP is actually wanting to buy something, the WNDR-3700 is a great...

    Looking for a solid router that'll last at least 10 years w/o problems

    Surely you've tried Tomato or something? Third party firmware? It's kindof like Windows 7 and old PCs... It breathes modern life into old equipment that used to be useless. And yea, Sat Internet sucks. Too slow to do anything with other than web surfing and email.

    How to Hide IP Address?

    Yup... Most of your higher-class hackers are, IMO... Using coffee shops and hopping from one to the other. So even when they track down the address, they'll have no idea who it is, unless there's cameras that managed to snag all the details (license plates or whatever).

    Every two weeks or so my router goes down.....

    Tomato seems to be a more fluid OS than the DD-WRT... It's just not the "original" alternate firmware... So many people stick with DD-WRT just because of loyalty (I do think DD-WRT offers more features, but even most geeks won't touch them). Make sure you're using WPA2 and not just WEP or...

    Every two weeks or so my router goes down.....

    Best home-grade router is the WNDR-3700... If you want to spend the money, anyway. But try different (free) firmware first.

    Running a new phone and DSL line.

    Didn't read this whole thing. So ignore this if it's wrong. The phone company should be able to hook that up for you no problem. Anytime I've ordered a line, 1 jack is included in the cost. And even if it's NOT included in the cost... They'll at least hook it up to their box at least. I mean...

    Looking for a solid router that'll last at least 10 years w/o problems

    While I'd tend to agree... The hardware in said server will be old and outdated in 10 years as well. For the OP to expect to run anything for 10 years is folly. Get realistic here... Just grab an old computer, slap Untangle or something on it... And just expect in 5 years you might have to...

    DNSSEC on May 5th

    Sooooo here's the deal. Most home users use the ISP's DNS. Many businesses do this as well (or use something like OpenDNS). These ISPs will already have dealt with this. That leaves big corporations which might utilize their own DNS servers and whatnot. One would ASSUME most big...

    You realize the Apple GPS app (unless you're talking about turn-by-turn) is using the Google mapping, right? I don't think you'll see much difference there. Astronomy/News I could really care less about so I can't really comment. I did look under the "Top" section and there's a USA Today...

    HTC Droid Incredible $99.99

    Which is stupid. I wish there was a decent ISP that gave you reasonable pricing and exactly what you ask for. If you aren't going to use data, they should be able to freaking block data access... Not just mandate that you have data access. They already had data-blocking ability. It probably...

    HTC Droid Incredible $99.99

    I'm behind the times... What with the Anroid stuff, there's so freaking many Droid-powered phones now it's hard to keep up with what's out there <Still a reluctant 3GS user> What apps do you have that aren't on the Android system?

    That'd sure make permissions easier... I like that idea. But the question is again though, how does one generate a type of folder-level structure within Sharepoint?

    Sharepoint + Shared Documents?

    Well the problem with the pages/links thing is that's really too much trouble for USERS to update. I have no problem showing them how to do it but I just want something these folks can save docs to a folder (Let's say- a new invoice or something) and the customer just can access everything in...

    Sharepoint + Shared Documents?

    Has anyone kindof merged both of these together? Basically I'd like to setup a folder structure (A folder for each customer, and sub-folders in that), as well as has inter-company folders (finances and whatnot). I could use a VPN or something to grant inter-company folks access to what they...

    [Warm] Kill A Watt P4400 = $17.29 FS

    I only use laptops anymore, which sip power compared to desktops to start with... Like I was saying, I don't see much benefit from one. It'd just tell me the obvious. Putting a computer to sleep saves electricity. REALLY?

    Anyone able to have any shockers that made them change habits enough to pay for these things? It's just Fridge, Oven, Microwave, A/C, TV, Xbox, all that kind of stuff: you run it either constantly or when you're using it. So in reality, what can you save money on my using this?
