  1. MAC address filtering and disabling DHCP is a lot of work for you (you have to manually add MAC addresses to the ACL, you have to manually assign and keep track of IP addresses) with little gain. Your neighbors don't have to be "expert hackers" to defeat either of the schemes. YMMV depending upon where you live and what devices you have, but WPA support has been around awhile and is usually just a matter of updating your software so you might as well use it if you've got it. Just because you think it's unlikely someone is going to break into your network doesn't mean that they won't. It doesn't take any kind of hacking to defeat MAC filtering, the attacker literally can just use a tool like airsnort to sniff some traffic from your ESSID and then they can use another command line command (depends on the platform, I think there is something like "macchange" for Linux) to change their MAC address. What I mean by "scripts could be written to do this automatically" is basically something like this.
  2. Waste of time, you'll have to manually update the list for all of your devices and it won't stop anyone who is willing to spend 10 minutes Googling how to get in. Every packet sent from your computer contains your MAC address unencrypted (even if you use encryption). All someone has to do to break into your network is use one of the many widely available tools to figure out what your MAC address is, and then they're in. It wouldn't be hard to write a script that does this automatically. http://www.zdnet.com/blog/ou/the-six-dumbest-ways-to-secure-a-wireless-lan/43 WEP can also be broken by automated tools, but it's better than nothing if your devices don't support WPA. * I live in the suburbs. I guess if you lived in the country this kind of thing might not be a big of a concern...
  3. Doesn't look like they support any socket 775 boards.
  4. hi tom, it's been a wile and i kinda miss you man, glad to see you on line more often.

  5. Oops, didn't notice this before, but the reason your copy command didn't work is because cp ignores directories without some extra options. Try sudo cp -rf "/media/Macintosh HD/Users/arlenacollins/ /home/jared/documents/carl/" instead. This might not work because there could be something ELSE wrong. HFS+ on Linux can be a little weird sometimes. The way chmod works is you add up the numbers you want where read=4, write=2,execute=1. You do that three times for owner, group, everyone. Eg. if I wanted to make a file readable only to me I would say chmod 400 file. If you notice that 4 + 2 + 1 = 7, when someone says chmod 777 they mean give all permissions to everyone. Be very careful doing that as you can easily hose a working system. Edit: oops
  6. Have you tried cd'ing into the directory?
  7. Have you tried something like Virtualbox then? The integration with your desktop is decent, and it has support for USB devices last time I checked. The only downside is that you will need to own a copy of MS Windows, although honestly I'd be surprised if you didn't since virtually every computer sold comes with a license and obtaining an installation media is fairly simple after you have that. What do you need Nokia PC suite for? I don't have a Nokia phone but there appear to be several different solutions when it comes to basic contact/appt syncing.
  8. The software appears to be Windows-only. However there may be alternatives, and you could try using Wine. http://www.google.com/search?q=nokia+pc+suite+linux

  10. I have a 700mhz G4 eMac (the GeForce 2 one) and it runs 10.4 fine, although you may want to add a little more memory before you upgrade (I have 768mb, from 256). It came with 10.4 so I cannot really offer any upgrade advice, but it shouldn't be much harder than putting in the CD and following the install instructions. Unfortunately Apple has dropped support for PPC Macs with Snow Leopard, and while Leopard still works on PPC you need a faster processor to install (>800mhz or something). Looking around on Amazon, Tiger seems to be pretty expensive, and I'm not even sure if they sell CD versions (my eMac doesn't have a DVD drive sadly ). You might just be better off sticking with what you've got, or maybe making the jump up to 10.3 if you really think you need to.
  11. Don't buy a 64bit card, go for at least 128bit. If you have PCIe you should be able to pickup a 8600gt for ~45$ refurbished on Amazon. If you have AGP then you're pretty much stuck with rebuying what you already have, unless you want to spend a lot of money. http://www.amazon.com/s/qid=1249494873/ref...11%2Cn%3A284822
  12. ndiswrapper is very easy to setup (sudo ndiswrapper -i ExampleDriver.inf), but the two adapters I have used with it have always had a difficult time staying connected to our WPA-protected network. This adapter was very cheap and works out of box on my laptop (Fedora 10, NetworkManager picks it up right away and connects to our network). It gets VERY hot though, which I don't think is a good thing...

    Amazon MP3 Downloader

    I realize this is a really old thread, but I just want to say that I bought my first song from Amazon's music store and the downloader worked perfectly.

    Disable mouse touch pad

    That's a device, I assume, his mouse.

    Disable mouse touch pad

    I used this to turn mine off Here's a KDE version. Here's a QT (no KDE) version. At least one of these must be in the Suse repos.
