  1. http://www.fixedearth.com/ I thought this was pretty funny
  2. The reason there are more viruses for Windows, over other OS's, is because most people use Windows. For the most part, people who use Windows don't know and practice good security habits, this is for a lot of people whom use Windows so don't get offended. Therefore, it's smarter, on the virus creator's end, to make a virus for Windows over a UNIX. How many replies a topic has does not make a topic good(i.e. not pointless).
  3. Agreed. I think this thread should be closed.
  4. It's not that surprising, but it's a scary thought. Someone could mislead you so far off, providing you have know idea how to get to your destination. It'd be a waste of time and money.
  5. Scientists have succeeded in spoofing gps signals. That's kind of scary.
  6. with the right user name/pass that could be entertaining Word.
  7. We're all going to be dead by then, damn mayan(incan?) calender. Seriously though, that'd be cool to be able to shoot ships down with lasers. This is the first, or another step forward depending on how you interpret aliens, step to protecting ourselves against hostile aliens. We'll be able to pwn so many people with that laser.
  8. How come you don't have admin privileges on your own computer?
  9. If you're using a linux distro, you can use torify. I used this to set it up. However, I'm not sure if I just did that, I might have done other stuff to get it working. Sorry for my bad memory.
  10. who gives a shit what the reason is. thats irrelevant, im not going to not use an operating system that has way better hardware support because it got that way by default. see this is exatly my point, fanbois cant even point out a good thing about windows without trying to spin it into something bad. people need to stop being so narrow minded and one tracked. see i never bash windows or linux. why should i. i realize that they both have thier uses for different people, windows does not suck, linux does not suck, for me personnaly its no comparison, windows gets the things done the way i need them done, so my os of choice is windows. another person might have some things that he can only get done in linux, maybe because the price of a windows program is too expensive or becuase older hardware prevents him from using windows for that task, or a number of different reasons, but i would sound like a compete dipshit if i just came out and said "ZOMG LINUX IS SUX" but from my standpoint i could because i have no use for linux. but that dosnt mean it sucks. Amen. I use linux as my main os, but I also have windows installed. You're right that it's pointless to argue what OS is better. No OS is really _better_ than another. It all boils down to the user, and what the user needs to use his or her OS for. Whatever gets the job done. However, installing, setting up, and learning to use linux can teach: persistence, patience, where to go for help, and how to get a job done. For some people who don't have those qualities or that knowledge, linux is a great learning experience.
  11. Yeah, it's a topic worthy of notice. Many people use web-based email accounts.
  12. Well, "hackers" have "hacked" into a potential vice president's email. I see this as a threat to our national security. What if those so called hackers sold confidential information to terrorists, and we end up with another 9/11 incident? Would you then consider it a matter of national security? Just because there wasn't anything important in there right now doesn't mean there won't be next time. You really think that high-level government executives use Yahoo Mail? lol no. If a high-level government executive used Yahoo Mail, he deserves to be pwned. However, it would still be a threat to national security because 1) That person is an idiot and should be taught some things about security 2) There are people out there who want to, for all we know, hack into it and sell the info to terrorist.
  13. This is a question google can't really answer. He's looking for recommendations, something that comes from an actual human being. Since he asked here, he's looking for recommendations that come from the human beings that frequent these forums. I'd recommend Ubuntu. It's good, both for beginners and experienced users. Most of the time it just works and is polished. It's also not bloated like Fedora or SuSE. A single CD is all you need to install. I completely agree. Ubuntu is a great learning distro, it also has a live cd .
