Comment: I've done it. (Score 0) 405 405

by HaDAk (#48380093) Attached to: Ask Slashdot: How To Unblock Email From My Comcast-Hosted Server?
Spamhaus' RBL has a permanent block on Comcast's residential prefixes. You can't petition them to change it, so you're always going to be blocked. Sorry. Aside from that, Comcast blocks outbound SMTP, for spam reasons. It is absolutely possible to get Comcast to unblock your traffic -- I know, because I've done it. (I have the phone number and name of the guy I talked to taped to my modem... but that's not with me, at the moment. Sorry.) If you do get them to unblock the traffic (they'll ask you why you need to, etc. It's a very personal process.), it'll be good until you reboot your modem. If that happens (let's hope the power never goes out), you'll have to call back and have them unblock it. So, yeah: you can absolutely get Comcast to unblock it. The problem comes down to getting other mail servers to accept the email as NOT spam (thanks Spamhaus!).

+ - Best eyefinity gaming monitor(s)?

HaDAk writes: I'm getting ready to upgrade my whole rig, and with it, I want a new set of monitors. I'm looking for something 23+", able to be mounted on VESA mounts, DisplayPort capable (although, not entirely necessary, this would be nice), with tiny bezels. Ideally, I'd like to spend under $300 per monitor, but given the stringent list of requirements, I would understand a more costly solution.

I plan on doing gaming and photography work, so color representation and response rates should be exquisite. Extra bells and whistles (microphone, speakers, etc) are not necessary.

Does anybody have any suggestions for a great monitor to look at?

+ - Ancient Confession Found: 'We Invented Jesus Christ'->

Submitted by HaDAk
HaDAk writes: American Biblical scholar Joseph Atwill will be appearing before the British public for the first time in London on the 19th of October to present a controversial new discovery: ancient confessions recently uncovered now prove, according to Atwill, that the New Testament was written by first-century Roman aristocrats and that they fabricated the entire story of Jesus Christ. His presentation will be part of a one-day symposium entitled "Covert Messiah" at Conway Hall in Holborn (full details can be found at
