Comment RSA's SecureID (Score 1) 122

I'm pretty sure SecureID uses 2-factor authentication before Kim's patent. Where you enter the password, a token is generated and you have to enter the key before access is granted.
I guess the different maybe the token is automatically generated every min instead of being transmitted to to a secondary device. If his patent is validated in court, it's worth a lot more than the 50mil he asked.

Comment What do to with my Class C ? (Score 1) 329

I own a class C block, registered in 1995. Haven't touched it for years and don't really need it now, it's still being unused. How do I claim it to give it to my friend who own a a small ISP ?
My POC in Arin is outdated and the IP records still point to me. Can't find the information in arin on how to reclaim it.
Thanks !


Startup's Submerged Servers Could Cut Cooling Costs 147

1sockchuck writes "Are data center operators ready to abandon hot and cold aisles and submerge their servers? An Austin startup says its liquid cooling enclosure can cool high-density server installations for a fraction of the cost of air cooling in traditional data centers. Submersion cooling using mineral oil isn't new, dating back to the use of Fluorinert in the Cray 2. The new startup, Green Revolution Cooling, says its first installation will be at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (also home to the Ranger supercomputer). The company launched at SC09 along with a competing liquid cooling play, the Iceotope cooling bags."

I know a few small businesses that abuse the MS license to make PROFIT and I think it's about time that MS does a crackdown on those businesses.
They should put more effort into cracking down those real business abusers who are making profit on the back of MS than the stupid broken WGA which annoys lots of innocent home users.
