    proxying an internet connection through a work computer (not illegal)

    yeah, I was actually going to test it, however, certain things happen. First off, this is vail resorts, so its not like their network is cheap. Second, each comp has a IT number assigned to it, everyt time I call in to IT, they need that number to "see" whatever it is they need to see, so that...

    here's my situation. I live on a ski resort, up on the mountain in one of the buildings that is not used in the summer (think "the shinning" but in summer). They do not have phone lines or cable lines that I can use up there. They do have a network set up though. When talking with IT, they...

    a client of mine is currently getting really into photoshop for his buisness, and it is making things difficult because he is using a pretty average home media PC to make things more difficult, he thought it would be a good idea to by some off brand 32'' widescreen LCD, not a high quality...

    Your preferred P2P network...

    well, you're touching a huge nerver there, the "harm" comes in people not being funded to produce media, in essense making it impossible to produce anything. With that being said, all media developers (from the local painter to the highest program developer) need to figure out how to utilize...

    Your preferred P2P network...

    now, I have an opinion on the term "pirate".... In my mind, "pirate" is one who takes for some form of profit. Be it financial (i.e. - bootleggers), or for status (i.e. 0sec site status, "scene" status, etc etc), or to derail or 'upset' a company (i.e. M$ hacks who intentionally seek to...

    Your preferred P2P network...

    yeah, infact, there is alot of people, including me, that are recording all their vinyl and releasing the tracks out to soulseek, and it's very strict about how the tracks are recorded and labeled. People on slsk are definately the most nit picky about files and sharing

    Could the MPAA benefit by allowing movies for legal downloading?

    yeah, but your still thinking in the terms of owning something material, and that data transfers will be slow still. I say that we, and the industry should stop thinking in terms of "material objects" and look at things in terms of just data with the advent of SFF and HTPC and the home...

    Could the MPAA benefit by allowing movies for legal downloading?

    my take is that all media companies better prepare to have all there media distributed via the net. The tech is there, it's just that they do not know how to make $ off it. but as I have learned, technological determinism is a very real thing. If the tech exists, and it is viable, than it...

    Wireless activity makes audible noise on soundcard

    sounds to me like your actually getting more noise than from your wi card, it sounds like the whole system is producing noise. try running some random bench mark and see if you still hear it. are you using the headphone jack on your card or your case? if it's the case, then the cable...

    network noob needs help setting up wide area network

    you know, I never looked into specific ghosting, I always just used old versions of ghost and did the entire drive. my only problem with ghosting is that it's not intuitive for them, they would like to just see a bunch of excel, word, and quickbook files when they need to retreive there back up.

    network noob needs help setting up wide area network

    oh, I forgot some fundaments: the PC is running winXPpro, and reformating for win 2k3 is probably the last thing I want to do, along with them. the other thing, on the automated backups: it can't be a ghost or anything like that, because they use there PC's for many personaly activities...

    thanks for all the tips, but we are missing one point, unless I am not understanding something. If we use remote desk top or PC anywhere, it will interfer with the person who is doing work on the server PC correct? plus another thing, the server PC is a triple monitor matrox setup, where...
