The lastest idea is that all UK ISPs should be forced, by law, to adopt an “opt-in” policy for adult material. In other words, when you sign up with an ISP, you will have to explicitly say that you want to be able to view porn, otherwise it will be filtered out.
I set my old NAS (a Western Digital WorldBook) to copying across everything overnight. Have just checked and everything has copied fine. The ReadyNAS tells me that with everything I have copied across, I am using 8% of the drive capacity.
I’ve just ordered the StartFun Inventor’s Kit to get me going, which is a heap of varied components together with an Arduino Uno controller – an easily programmable microcontroller. It looks a lot of fun, and it is possible to build quite a bit of stuff with a minimum of soldering, which suits me. It means I can play away developing my prototype, then call in a friend with a steadier hand when I have something worth building.
But whose bright idea was it to reverse the order of “Open in a new tab” and “Open in a new window” when you right click a link?
I have had a VOIP/SIP client on my phone for some time – SIPDroid. It is a popular client, and I could use it to make calls through my work VOIP phone system. However, it would never ring when a call came in, which limited its use.
As a result, for a while, I moved my router and computers downstairs, to work on the dining table.
My Firefox bookmarks have grown over the past few years, and the way they are arranged in folders is more a product of time than organisation.
The spammers use automated software to detect the type of forum software a site uses, and act appropriately in signing up. The demonstration of this that I saw was amazingly sophisticated – the spamming software first signs up for a new hotmail/gmail/whatever email account, then goes through a submitted list of likely forums, registering with each one, using that address. It then tests to see if it has posting access – if it does, it posts spam, if not, it then waits for (and responds to) any security/registration emails the forum software sends, all automatically – then having been approved, it posts spam.

Until I discovered that my Eee, which I was planning to use this week, had broken and wouldn’t boot. Handing it over to , he eventually diagnosed a file corruption problem – possibly caused by an unplanned loss of power. The solution was to reload the original OS from ROM, and then download and reinstall my various software updates.
