    "I spent three hours last year convincing the AT&T call center that they needed to get their line back on a replaced pole. They refused to believe that a line labeled Western Electric was theirs. Kept saying it was the electric company's line." (jackalope48; http://www.city-data.com/forum/texas/2772893-end-era.html#post48383373)

    I still use flash drives to take stuff to untrusted computers -- for example, when I take something to the print shop to be run off in large format. These types of places (print/copy shops, library, et c.) don't run a primary business of having safe, secure computers, and they let you plug in and run pretty much anything, so I will typically use a flash drive to take files, then nuke it when I get home. I don't log into anything on those computers, I've seen people at the print shop logged in with their cloud storage, email, whatever. Seems like a great way to get keylogged or your session cookie swiped or something. For moving stuff around between computers I trust, yeah, I don't really use flash drives anymore. Ironically I do still use floppies -- but that's only because part of my business is legacy systems repair/maintenance.

    Thank you Simple Note! For making a native Linux app with markdown you are AWESOME! Good bye Evernote! Your web-app just sucks as do your mobile apps! Here is a hint: functionality over JavaScript blinking and sliding widgets!

    Hi...i am a new user here. As per my knowledge the Weather Channel has no way of knowing who receives their signal on what equipment unless said equipment answers back to them.

    No. Before my tenure the entire company was down for 48 hours due to cryptolocker from a ThumbDrive. That was inconvenient for the owner who lost 48 hours worth of business. Of course Managers, Owners, IT people, and senior sales staff received training from IT and were in allowed security groups. Honestly, it worked out great for end users and IT. They had reliable systems for work and IT was able to provide better IT services w/o needing to worry every time Randsomeware was headlined.

    Do you have a teardown of any of the units? Chances are, if the FSK/PSK/whatever is being decoded by hardware, and it sounds like one of the Bell modulation types, it won't be hard at all to find the datasheet and figure out how to talk to it. Maybe for cost cutting reasons, they have some modem on a chip circuit (the TDK 73K212AL is a good example of one) answer the phone *and* receive satellite programming? Though it'd seem like a bad design decision to not let it receive both simultaneously.

    May I please handle this? Thank you! We are mostly Developers, System Administrators, and Analysts. Linux can send a 3000 page Office Document like a champ. Bits are transparent moving across the physical wire. I'd wager one year's professional salary Linux boxes move more Word Documents than Windows platforms. Are you Recptionist? My GF is and can use Word and Excel like a pro. She is actually certified in Excel and Power Point, the certs hang above her cubical. When a Windows System Admin, I ran my Win10 Pro workstation in a VM (level2 hypervisor) on Linux. I could backup snapshots and have an IT workstation in case the worst happened and some CEO infected the entire Domain with some CIA Bitlocker MS-0Day variant. Simply boot Linux, put virtualized nodes on HA, and then run automated re-installs. I could also do simple but professional level I.T. things without needing a CAL for every other connection. but capitols are different letters. should ms revert to case insensative passwords? Really, this shows a serious lack of Computer Science knowledge. :-)
