I have received five spam email in the last five years. I don't run any spam filters, so I am assuming that it has been the ISPs and/or my email providers that have been filtering.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!

During Jerry Brown's first term as California's governor, his lieutenant governor, Mike Curb, would sign bills in his absence. Most memorable was the fact that the republican lieutenant governor would sign bills that the democratic governor would have never signed.
The most annoying thing about Ubuntu is how they are making it harder and harder to customize it to how we like it. Things like the non-intuitive, over complicated grub2 with it's limited options, and the limited customablity of the new gdm . It appears that Canonical wants to control user experience like Jobs.
One of the best things about the Osborne was the User Groups. The enthusiasm was amazing. I haven't seen anything close since.
Just sell the devices and give away an OS (Android) that makes the device function.
Be sure to patent this process.
Wouldn't be cheaper to install the tubes above ground?
I think Open Source Office Suite, or OSOS would be the best name and descriptor. Or perhaps just Open Source Office.
Just run your TV sound out through a volume limiter. Turn the TV volume up to a higher level that you are comfortable with during regular programing, Then turn the volume limiter to a comfortable level. Commercials won't be able to go above that volume.
This sounds like a plug device with a built in hard drive. The data is stored on your storage media and only the address of the device is out there in the cloud. No one has access to the data unless the know the address.
The first thing I do in this wide screen world is move both panels to the left of my screen. Then I get rid of as many toolbars as I can, usually leaving only the file menu and maybe a navigation toolbar.
I'm not a fan of scrolling. I'd rather view it a screen at a time, like flipping a page of a book, by hitting the PgDn key.
Ubuntu's trend seems to be limiting the users ability to modify ubuntu to our preferences. In 10.04 they have remove the tools to modify the login. They kept the tools for managing Palm Pilots, but eliminated the kernel modules that allow any connection.
If Dr Evil got control of a satellite with a "big frick'n laser"...
I agree. Anti-Virus Programs are not needed and slows down computers.
I had a Win2K SP4 machine, that I used as an answering manchine, online 24 hours a day for five years. I used the precautions listed in Lendrick's post, with the addition of putting a router with a firewall between the computer and the cable modem. Although I don't use it for an answering machine now, I still use it regularly. It still is a clean machine.
Of course most of my online computing is done on linux machines, where I don't have to be near as careful.
