1. Set up OpenVPN on the datacenter Linux server to act as your Battlefield endpoint (single IP + port).
2. Set up 2 VPN connections, one from each phone, to that box.
3. Set up a Linux box to act as a router at home. Use bluetooth or whatever to connect it to your mobile connections.
4. Follow the directions here http://www.lartc.org/autoloadb... on how to set up iptables rules as needed on both Linux boxes.
5. Modify the iptables rules as needed to your specific requirements.
6. Keep on modifying iptables. It will take days to work out all the kinks.
7. Verify that your latency problems still exist.

Windows is a platform that sits on the NT kernel. Debian is a platform that sits on the Linux kernel. Platform is a word you can bend all you want, but operating system has a tried and true definition.

The not-so-arbitrary line is quite clear: If it runs in kernel space, it's low level. If it runs in user space, it's high level. If you don't know what these terms mean, do some reading.

There is blurriness in systems like Minix 3, where the kernel dispatches quite a bit of work to user space services. But even then, the dependencies (code paths) make it clear what is the OS and what is not. There is no such blurriness in MSWord or fsck. The NT kernel has no dependencies MSWord. Similarly, the Linux kernel doesn't need any of the code in fsck to perform its work.

RIAA's Attack On NewYorkCountryLawyer Fails 222

NewYorkCountryLawyer writes "p2pnet.net reports that the RIAA has egg on its face. When the Electronic Frontier Foundation requested permission to file an amicus curiae brief on behalf of Boston University students challenging the RIAA's ex parte discovery order, the RIAA lawyers attacked the blog 'Recording Industry vs. The People' for its criticism of the RIAA as seeking to 'abuse the American judicial system, distort copyright law, and frighten ordinary working people and their children' and then falsely claimed that the blog's author is an EFF attorney — this despite the fact that they know that the blog's author (known on Slashdot as NewYorkCountryLawyer) is a partner in a New York law firm and not an EFF attorney. Judge Gertner apparently wasn't impressed, and granted the EFF's motion, rejecting the RIAA's objections, since she felt amici curiae might 'shed light' on the 'copyright law' and 'computer technology' issues before her."

GarbagePailKid wrote to mention the news that Microsoft has filed a formal complaint alleging that the EU colluded with company rivals and hid critical documents during the EU regulation hearings. According to Microsoft: "While the documents provided do not include the direct correspondence between the commission and its technical experts, they show that the commission, the trustee, and Microsoft's adversaries were secretly collaborating throughout the fall of 2005 in a manner inconsistent with the commission's role as neutral regulator and the Trustee's role as independent monitor..."
