Everyone runs Admin on XP anyway, so privilege escalation is less of a problem than it could be.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Everyone who talks about ME and XP and the Even/Odd rule seems to forget the elephant in the room: Windows 2000. Really great operating system.
Firefox jumped the shark when they finally did away with a functional search bar. Now it's all about the forks, like Palemoon.
You got the version vulnerable to towelroot? If so, root that thing. If not, too bad...
Kitkat itself was pretty bad. Kitkat was the first Android release that crippled your phone with the inability to use your SD card in apps, no matter what your phone maker intended. In order to make KitKat usable, you had to root it. No more phone updates for me, period.
They were going to offer the history channel, got the package bundle all ready to go and everything, except ALIENS.
You know the senders and receivers. That's what Tor tries to stop.
Download anything from them and it will be loaded with extra adware with a very tricky sequence of clicks to not install any of it. Yes, this even means not agreeing what looks like a license agreement, but is actually an offer to install crap.
I'd probably take even Comcast over them.
There's nothing 3D about the 32x at all. It just provided a faster processor and frame buffer.
Portrait displays were great when monitors were still 4:3 aspect ratio rather than 16:9. You could get a desktop width of 1024, and be just like a standard monitor, except much taller. You can even see entire pages in your word processor. But if you rotate a 16:9 monitor, it just looks absurdly tall and hard to deal with.
The answer of course is to update to IOS 7.
Searched for the NES game "Ring King", examined the star ratings, but they were Rom sites and X-rated Newgrounds parodies instead of actual review sites.
Good. When you have some hairy kernel module that hasn't been touched in a long time, and has security holes because nobody's willing to change it, sometimes you just need something better.
Use a SSH or VNC server, and also use a dynamic DNS client so you have a hostname instead of some random IP address, Then you can control the machine directly when it's online. VNC might be really slow over dialup though, you'd need to use Tight encoding with JPEG quality cranked all the way down to make it usable at all.
I usually end up tunneling VNC over SSH, and the VNC server only allows connections through the tunnel.
I think smartwatches need a tiny joypad that can be clicked in as an extra button, kind of like old cell phones had. This would greatly expand the potential for video games, since you can't do much on a tiny touchscreen.
