    Facing Layoff, IT Employee Makes Bold Counteroffer

    While I agree that people should learn new skills... I bet you ANY money, this isn't being outsourced, it's H-1B being abused. I have no problem with 'truely' outsourcing employment overseas... but if you're going to do it... do it. Don't make foreign workers here slave labor.

    It is. If a company states that the conversation is being recorded, that is giving consent for the conversation to be recorded by any participating party. Source: I work for a voip telephone company in FL.

    interesting that such tech person (and others on here) think that tech to pay for stuff is bad. Embrace change. I can't tell you how many times Apple Pay has saved my butt when I forgot my wallet at home.

    The Router Recommendations Thread (Consumer)

    Almost anything you try will be a massive upgrade for you. However, if you want 'stable', then you'll need either Ubiquiti or Mikrotik. I went the way of Mikrotik and have a wifi version of the RB2011. Super stable, pretty easy to setup, and covers my entire house decently. (1400 sq feet)

    OS X, iOS And Linux Have More Vulnerabilities Than Windows

    I agree with those that say having a GUI (remote or web based) just plain saves time. You can use a single connection and open many different tools to get a better/broad stroke idea of what is going on. This is the same way I feel about managed network equipment. yes, being able to set a...

    12M Routers Vulnerable To Critical Hijacking Hack

    D-link has always put out low end crud. The DIR-655 was a bright light in routers, but before that and after that, they haven't put out anything great. Moved from a dying 655 to a Asus Dark Knight (RT-N66U) and it was great... until it started to overheat and get flaky. However...

    Piracy = Theft? Movie Industry Workers Speak Out

    no no no ... and just no. Your are the consumer. You don't get to tell businesses how to price their product, no matter how much you think it is 'crap'. Also, there is no regulatory body in the world that could examine each piece of software and determine its value. What about...

    Patch panel termination on home network

    2/3's of all Cat6 runs wouldn't be certified. Not sure why a person would have an A/V company do this, but whatever. It's done, not perfect, just leave it be. You'll still have gigabit speeds and really after a few weeks, you'll forget about how it looks. If anything, I'd be pissed about...

    Need some assistance with programming some older Cisco SPA509G phones

    ok, fixed the paging by using the Multicast paging. (gotta love that its enabled by default at 800#) Still wish I could figure out the speed dial issue while connected. Lastly, to your knowledge, do you know if Asterisk supports sending a call to a specific parking extension?

    Looking for a keyboard that feels good to use.

    Here's another question... do vendors like Corsair sell additional keycaps or would I have to go through a 3rd party? I like the idea of the K70, but because I'm left handed, the textured key caps are in the wrong place for me. I'd like to move / replace them accordingly.
