  1. Thanks for the link - I know what I'm going to be listening to for the next few days...
  2. I have to thank my uncle for getting me interested in computers at a young age. I used to hang out with my cousin at his house all the time, and my uncle as long as I could remember always had a PC. So I spent alot of time over there on his, and eventually talked my Mom and Dad into getting a PC (way back in the early 90's). From there I always had a strong interest, and was self taught on pretty much everything. I'm still learning new things every day, to this day.
  3. Ditto. If You're able to hax0r a satellite you probley wouldn't be posting on these threads... I would have to bow down to the guy who could p0wn an Echostar satellite. Maybe they can change some things around and have all the spotbeamed channels directed to my part of the country i wonder actualy how hard it would be, the satelites are controlled from a computer here on earth so it really wouldnt be hacking them it would more be getting into that computer or more likely server I'm sure it's possible - it would be just a matter of finding the uplink frequencies and cracking whatever encrpytion is being used. OTOH, It might just be easier to hack the systems directly at the uplink facility honestly. Now that is the funniest thing I have seen awhile. I'm surprised I've never came across that before.

  5. Here's the reciever I have: http://cgi.ebay.com/PANSAT-2700A-2700-FTA-...1QQcmdZViewItem It's an older box, but works great and Pansat is widely supported... It's a little bit of a hassle doing rom updates thru a serial connection (Since I have to disconnect the box each time and bring it to my pc), but if you want a cheap reciever that works well, this is one to get.
  6. See if this helps: http://www.abadss.com/forum/12-other-fta-r...rak-1000-a.html BTW I have a FTA reciever for Dish. It's saved me a lot of money not having a cable bill

  8. I subscribe, and I haven't got it yet either.
  9. I got outbid... Oh well.
  10. Cool - I gave in and placed a bid on these. I'm really curious how these boards are programmed. The guy selling these said he found the software to program them, but I'll see on that. With these phones being older, I really doubt they have a usb port on the board, but rather it's probably a serial connection or something proprietary. Still, with that lcd screen/buttons in place there obviously has to be a way to program these....
  11. Wow you got that for free? That thing looks like an antique for sure. I bet it's probably worth some money... I'm surprised someone would give that away for free! Good find :voteyes: edit: It's a scandinavian phone: http://www.bobsoldphones.net/Pages/Glossary.htm KTAS Kjobenhavns Telefon Aktieselskab; Copenhagen Telephone Company (in Denmark, not Germany or Russia, for the geographically challenged). Their initials are often stamped into the base of their phones, or displayed in full on a plain transfer on the box. Their logo, where used, is crossed red, white and blue flags.
  12. The funny part is, I just got a storage space today to store some extra junk I had laying around so I would definitely have the room to store these. Only problem is I would need to get a uhaul or something since I don't have a truck(but it only costs $20 a day plus mileage which is nothing). Still, even if I only resold 2 or 3 I would break even. Plus I'm sure there are a few of you here that would be interested in them (I'd probably resell them here on binrev for $100 shipped) I'm going to seriously think about this today and probably bid on them tomorrow if I decide to go thru with it.
  13. Nice - I live in the Omaha area actually... Only $100? I might have to think about bidding on this.
  14. I agree with the above - I use RDP almost on a daily basis and am more than happy with it's features and performance. The only thing that MS could improve on is making it a little easier to transfer files between the host machine and the client. Sure you can map the disk drive, but it should be as easy as dragging and dropping IMO. I've used VNC before as well, but I've found that RDP was more well polished than VNC. VNC works well, but RDP integrates into the OS alot better. Anyways I love using RDP, it's such a handy tool - I was on vacation in Florida a few months back using hotel's unsecured wireless to connect. Since I don't trust any open wireless connection worth a shit(obviously no one should), I remoted in to my home pc to browse the net and check email. All with the comfort that the connection was encrypted.
  15. I got mine in the mail last week
