    vnc does not send passwords in plain text, but the password can be cracked if someone sniffs the key as well as the encrypted password.

    VNC works over LAN, not over Internet

    i agree with jonw757. assuming that port forwarding is setup correctly, there are no software firewalls blocking requests, and you are attempting to connect to your public ip address there should be no problems unless your isp blocks the vnc port. the solution to this of course, is to change...

    Slackware install

    linux generally avoids using the swap partition unless your physical memory is full. since you have 2gb of physical memory, you should choose a more consevative swap size because you will almost never use it. on my system for example, i have only 512mb of memory. my swap partition is 512mb...

    Desk Cooling Project

    once you put a computer inside the enclosure in the desk, expect it to get much hotter in there, even more so if the door is closed. further, if you were to line the inside of it with some sort of insulation you will do nothing but trap the heat inside that enclosure and probably just make it...

    100mhz system

    you kinda answered your own question. although, you could most likely install any of the win9X operating systems and possibly even win2k if you have enough ram. iirc, the minumum specs for win2k are 133mhz and 64mb ram. it would probably not run too much different on 100mhz than 133mhz.

    trouble with Firefox .9/Flash/WinXP

    i ran into the same problem. i believe it is something with how the flash is being delivered from the site and not an issue with firefox at all. i changed nothing on my system at all, and i am no longer prompted about what to do with the flash file.
