    Anyone here work in a NOC?

    It depends on the NOC setup and what you want to do. I worked for a regional NOC for a national cable company and it was an interesting experience, but it did not really fit well with my carrer goals. It gives you a great sense of all the networks and how they all interact. But there is a...

    Worst Company In America 2011

    WCIA Is a joke any more anyway, Hell most of Consumerist is a joke. In 2010, Comcast beat out TicketMaster, which beat out BofA? Seriously? In the Facebook VS TWC match, here is one of the TWC digs: "Time Warner Cable is also on the forefront of metered broadband and consumption based...

    Remote RDC

    you can also setup your router to map port 3389 to the computer you want to RDP to, then you would just need to hit the external IP of your network.

    Dell st2220t vs U2211h/U2311h

    I have a SGI 1600SW LCD I've been using for YEARS as a primary monitor and now more recently as LAN Party monitor. I'm tired of lugging around the monitor, the MultiLink adapter, 2 power bricks and 2 cables and would like to upgrade. Now I'm eying either the U2211H or the U2311h as a...

    L3 router for CCNA/CCNP

    I'm actually a Certified Novell Administrator for Netware 5. I got it roughly 10 years ago. Its actually been a pretty useful cert in 2 ways: 1. It taught me I NEVER want to admin or use Netware or Novell in any way. 2. I keep the CNA card in my wallet for laughs, and when I need a sturdy...

    PAX East @ Boston March 11-13 2011

    so I'm confused, because the PAX east website has this in the FAQ: Can I bring my own computer for the LAN? Yes! But you need to pre-register first, so we can reserve your space--don't just show up at the event with a computer under your arm. Bring-your-own-computer registration will take place...

    How is web browsing with Flash (for IPad)

    With my iPhone, the only sites i seem to run into issues with are restaurant sites who put their menus in a flash app (WHY?!?!) and some oddball video sites that may have something you tube does not. Not really a hindrance at all, I've never thought to myself "Damn if it just had flash!"

    Remote desktop from XP to OSX?

    Did I do something to piss you off or are you an asshole in general? I love the unwarranted hate. Frankly, I can setup a VPN fine, Previously I was using VNC tunneled via SSH. The point of this post was to get others OPINIONS about various remote access tools and to see if there was anything...

    RDC suddenly doesn't work, can TWC block ports?

    AFAIK there are no TWC port blocks that would affect this. They have at times blocked certain ports (during Blaster/Nachi for instance) but only in the cases of viruses. Are you on windows 7? Could it be that it detected the new ip, thought it was a new network, and kicked it into another...

    Remote desktop from XP to OSX?

    I've used VNC in the past and have been less than thrilled with the results, but that could have been a combination of settings or a poor connection. I think ill be trying Teamview (used it in the past) and once i reformat ill give VNC another shot. Thanks for the help.

    Apple: “Back to the Mac” on Oct 20

    I'm actually a bit curious if this might signal the end of OSX. I doubt it, but the whole "Out like a Lion" did cross my mind, Maybe OS11 is in our future sooner than a few more point releases?

    USB Video card suggestion?

    I recently got a promotion and got issued a new laptop. It is a Dell E6410 with a E-Port Plus docking station hooked up to 2 Dell 1910 LCD screens (1440x900 60hz). It acts as my desktop while in the office. As far as I can tell, there is no way I can use both the LCDs AND the laptop screen for a...

    MS announces Age of Empires Online and Microsoft Flight (Gamescom)

    I would say that Flight looks interesting... but really all we know about it is that it exists, and that 30 seconds of a biplane flying over the ocean with a girl telling us her dream was to fly. I hope the graphics look that good in game, but the whole "Flight" Concept is a little iffy. I...

    Are there any iPhone screen protectors that aren't crap?

    Check out the Power Support Anti-Glare films, ive had mine on my iPhone 3g for about a year and a half now and it still is holding up fine. It gives it the feel of a textured touch pad and reduces glare.

    Originally it was setup to suck out of the case with 1 fan. When i replaced the fans I sandwiched the rad between 2 Scythe Ultra Krazes 2krpms and set it so it was sucking from the outside air. RealTemp showed about a 10-12ºC drop, but i don't know if its accurate since now its showing my idle...

    WRT54G to WNDR3700?

    @freakyhair, I know when i went from my WRT-54g to the WNDR3700, i easily got about 10Mbps extra out of my connection, i was paying for 15/768, and on a good day was only seeing around 9 with the WRT-54G, after i upgraded i was getting full speed and the Turbo Boost i was not seeing before.

    Comcast: Not Even Zombies Can Stop Us
