this poll nailed it...last time i messed with all this was for a gaming machine for Quake 3 in college
The objective of any firewall is to prevent traffic on all unused ports in order to limit potential attack vectors. This is a given and no specific threat needs to be stated.
honestly you could not be more wrong/trolling...
you completely avoided the question
**of course** the objective of any firewall is to do as you say, but stating that fact is not an answer to GP's question
I really want to hear a good answer to GP's question....I used to have my CCNA, but mostly did database and research query stuff...I'd really like to see a specific answer to the question
You really are trolling more than just GP...you're trolling all of us, everyone on here who is an industry professional should have a decent ***specific*** answer to GP's question.
To top it off, you accuse GP of acting like a typical "bureaucrat"
It sounds like you're some bureaucrat trying to justify the costs of standard security practices.
Just dead wrong.
bureaucratic functionaries don't ask analytical questions that demand real world, specific answers...and they use manipulative language to justify **getting a bigger budget** as well
looks like a good set up
yeah i agree...esp. about silly ways otherwise unskilled make themselves feel superior...it's cheap & dumb...reminds me of Dungeons & Dragons for some reason...
it's a relevant language to the conversation
we can get pedantic about the difference between "coding" and "programming" languages...but others have gone down that road & it's never-ending
we need a consistent paradigm
HTML & CSS are coding languages...they are a defined set of symbols that contain commands run on a computer (specifically by a browser)...yes they are not "original gangster" coding languages that you can brag about..but they are a unique set of code that commands a machine...it's "code"
not all people who use HTML/CSS are "coders"
it's like back before facebook.com came online, one of the only options was Myspace...kids would get into the HTML & CSS via an interface and just randomly change color numbers and hack it up
**that's not coding**
whoever made the CSS for a site like...well facebook.com....is surely a coder
keep your bragging rights, bro...you're more of a 'real' coder...but it's reductive and pedantic to say "CSS is not a programming language"
it's a semantic argument, IMHO...but you totally missed the joke
if the defining criteria is your code language can do something another cannot, then have C++ render a hypertext document with linked photos & text into a browser
still it's *semantics*...it's all machines following code pounded by a monkey
good advice thanks!
I'm seeing some trolling (someone took the time to copy some law they found)...might as well just say parent is right
Furthermore, any individual can record music (from the radio or from a CD from the library or purchased at a yard sale or anywhere) onto any format, then make a compilation of songs onto any format, and give that to any person they want.
The federal government has not defined what a 'friend' is...anyone can give any music to any 'friend' as per the DCMA
You don't have to agree with what I said above to know that parent is right as well...the downloading isn't the problem, it's uploading in how most cases that make it to trial go as I've seen as well.
how do you have your content server networked? do you use wifi...cable...both? do you use some kind of software (maybe airport?) that does it all for you?
the quotes make it official! take it to the bank!
look man, I lol'ed when you said this:
You owe me an apology.
so in the spirit of progress, "I apologize"
it's still possible you have other accounts (as i guess the same is possible for me) but fsk it
thanks for the info!
i love that someone just downmodded **only my responses** on this deepthread between me and dblll (whom i still suspect may have multiple accounts, regardless of UID)
i protest these downmods...either downmod us both or not at all...
