I'm also in the same situation as you are. Telstra port and Internode ADSL2+ although I get a 19mbit sync. Have to say I have been with Internode for years and haven't had a problem with them. Love all the "free" and fast content.

I think it's preaching to the choir here though. If you can get off Bigpond you should if not the rest of us will pray to the Flying Spagetti Monster for your souls.

Well it doesn't take an extra power adapter.. I really don't mind what it is but something that actually has a bit of power would be nice. Also I run my HTPC on Linux so I'm not sure those fancy audio features are working yet on the ATI drivers, and what about hardware decoding?? I currently have a 8400GS ticking away in my system quite nicely, not really much good for anything but decoding..

I actually tend to use something like this rather than change ACLs:

set oShell= Wscript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

objFSO.CopyFile "u:\scripts\test.vbs", "C:\temp\test.vbs"

oShell.Run "runas /noprofile /user:domain\administrator ""%windir%\system32\cmd.exe /C wscript c:\temp\test.vbs"""

WScript.Sleep 100

oShell.Sendkeys "password~"

Wscript.Quit ()

You'd be surprised how many people do it. In fact so many people do it where I work that I put a reghack in the logon script to make it so that all XLS files are opened with excel and not IE.


I didn't put it in place for this vulnerability though, just because a lot of people use macros and don't know how to save as.
