    PrivadoVPN FAIL!!!!!!

    Holy crap I was P2P a movie last night on a friend's Comcast line. I had PrivadoVPN (or at least I thought I did) enabled. 5 minutes after I completed the download they got a DMCA notice from Comcast! Well thank goodness I am not paying for that (cough-cough) service. I wouldn't waste my time...

    Eliminate Update Nag Box Internet Download Manager

    Any clues? I guess you could block it calling home to check but would that hobble the program? I just find it a royal pain even tho the program functions well as long as you don't try to update it.

    Busy Week

    Major VOIP carriers have been getting DDoS`d all week. The good news is governments have decided to unite against the extorsionware/ransomware groups and it sounds like they mean business.

    Microsoft kicks unsupported PCs out of Windows 11 preview program

    M/S is digging their heels in on this one. Meet the specs or you're out. I see where they are coming from with security in mind which it seems that's really what Win 11 is all about.

    iPads, and Samsung Tablets

    I have a fairly new iPad and a couple of Samsung Tablets. To be honest my good old Tab 2 T813 is one of my favorite devices. The folks at XDA provided me with the tools and knowledge to up the tablet to Android 10, Legend branch and it's awesome. Still has plenty of power, runs everything I...

    Are VPNs Becoming Obsolete?

    More and more sites are either blacklisting or requiring that pain in the ass Captcha verification. Someone must be maintaining a pretty extensive list of VPN IP addys. Granted VPNs are useful for torrents, keeping your IP from being disclosed from users but that's about it. I couldn't imagine...

    Some Windows 11 ISOs are badly infected Be careful out there. Problem is the ISO file is too big for the likes of Virustotal. I'd stick to 1337x and read the replies carefully before making the leap.

    Windows 11 I Don't Get It

    I did an upgrade from Win 10 Pro to an i7 Dell Precision 7760 mobile workstation, or did I?
