    Need advice on home security

    Thanks for the tip, putting the server in a dmz maybe the way to go. However, I also wanted astaro because of the other features it provides including vpn, virus scanning and web filtering. I am not opposed to choosing something else other than astaro that provides similar functionality. I...

    Pinguy OS(Linux) for my father's computer

    I say go with ubuntu mint. I am sure pinguy os is great however, I am wary of small distros mainly because the smaller they are the less people involved which increases the risk of the project dying out and probably less support and slower updates. Mint is fairly complete and easy to use plus...

    I have $2200 for a new me choose..

    I can't deal with anything larger than 15" so I am going to suggest that you go with a thinkpad T510. IMO thinkpads are best laptops I have ever used. They are very robust and sturdy. I like all black + silver hinges styling. You can do the 2 hd setup by replacing the removable cd rom bay.
