  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
  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 b
  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
  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. 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
  11. 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...
  12. 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.
  13. That's a device, I assume, his mouse.
  14. 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.

    KDE 4.1

    Uhh Brandon, KDE 4 is in the Ubuntu Gutsy repos I believe.
