  1. Krebs has an intro page here: http://krebsonsecurity.com/2013/06/windows-security-101-emet-4-0/ And he points out a forum thread which lists some known compatibility problems here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/security/en-US/1e70c72b-67b2-43c4-bd36-a0edd1857875/application-compatibility-issues?forum=emet
  2. Snow is much better than heatwaves/west_nile_virus/sunburns/skin_cancer/etc...
  3. Also, dress nicely and be respectful to the test administrator. Might sound odd, but it could be the difference between pass/fail if you don't do well.
  4. Since you ask the question, you are likely not an audiophile. An audiophile-type person will likely chime in and tell you how much better an external card would be. But the truth is in your ears. Maybe swing by Best Buy or a friend's house and plug your headset into some expensive gear. See if you can tell the difference in both music and gaming or whatever is important to you. An area where the expensive stuff stands out is in surround sound processing. If you want any of the Dolby stuff, then you need to pay for it. Dolby does sell Dolby Headphone and Dolby Digitial Live that people enjoy for FPS gaming. If your ears cannot tell the difference most of the time then just ignore those people who get overly passionate about their expensive gear and try to talk you into spending more money on things that don't do anything for you.
  5. @5eraph: My first reaction was "oh yeah, well then do you donate!?" but then saw your Supreme Sponsor tag. Hopefully everyone that complains of the ads is either a sponsor or in some way contributor to the free, open source project.
  6. I'm holding out hope that maybe the button isn't showing up for you guys because of a browser issue or NoScript or something Not looking forward to the next time they pull this stunt on me.
  7. I could have sworn that I had a solution to this somewhere but it might have involved AHK. WIll have to research some past efforts when I get some free time. In the meantime, I hereby subscribe to this thread Note: I seem to recall one issue I had was that I got a script to work but didn't realize it because the text viewer I was using (actually a file explorer at the time) wasn't properly displaying the unicode chars in the first place. So, yeah...check the obvious stuff first
  8. You can skip it as submix8c said but they will continue to bug you about it frequently.
  9. exactly This zombie thread is about privacy, not heft.
  10. Quite the bump, vinifera. There is also Comodo Dragon for consideration.
  11. You would likely get more feedback by using the General Discussion subforum: http://www.msfn.org/board/forum/2-general-discussion/
  12. You've clearly found the right place In addition to this DNS discussion, there is also the concept of a "default route" that may interest you.
  13. With the announcement that they will provide support for one more year, I found this interesting anonymous quote over on slashdot:
  14. Interesting. Does just changing your UA string fix this? (prior to the detection/ban, of course)
  15. In addition to connecting to a different PC, also try a different cable (ignoring the extension you mentioned). I had a bad cable quite recently that was the culprit of a similar problem.
  16. I often consider diabling/removing WMI for different reasons but always end up being glad it is there when something goes wrong and I need to monitor a box.
  17. Prior to compacting/expunging, I could see how it would report different numbers if different routines are doing the math.
  18. I agree with everything you wrote, jaclaz. I used to get all wrapped up in these things but haven't seen them cause any real-world problems in so long that I rarely go back to these principles of length/interference/attenuation/etc. For the average person using decent cables and modern equipment, he should be fine. Not optimal, but fine. The fine vs. optimal point is one to consider. WIth modern equipment negotiating a slower speed for slow/noisy links it is common to see reduced throughput in such scenarios. But when grandpa's A/B/G/N wifi link negotiates down to B due to a noisy environment...well his email will still load just as fast. (excuse the wifi example, I'm too tired and lazy to rewrite )
