I just forward port 3389 and the default remote desktop connection within windows works great. If you are trying to help somebody with a problem, using the remote desktop assist from within MSN messenger is definitely the way to go, though it does use the same port 3389 and requires that it be forwarded.

There are a lot of options to remotely control computers. I know a few off the top of my head:
Use RealVNC or TightVNC.
Use Windows/MSN Messenger and use a remote desktop assist
Use Windows Remote Desktop Connection

I personally use dd-wrt and love it. I think it is a lot older than Tomato but the two are basically competitors.

I don't agree with illegal activity and disrupting service like this to millions of customers, but what do you guys think about Sony restricting the PS3 console and preventing users from isntalling their own OS on it?

Also I think it's pretty low that these hackers are trying to profit off the attack by selling the user data. Sounds like they had a ultimatum other than just proving a point about freedom.

Fair enough, but I'm hoping the underdog Bruins can pull off the upset!

I haven't used master and slave assignments in a long time. When I was using IDE cables I would do cable select. With SATA I haven't used PATA in years though.

Almost all SSD use TRIM now, most of the older ones can have their firmware updated to support it. I do not recommend using an SSD without TRIM as your performance will drop significantly over time. For a while only Windows 7 had TRIM but recently Linux and Mac versions support it as well. Vista and older do not have TRIM.

Bruins won game 7 in the Eastern conference finals. It's Stanley Cup time.

Isn't the high-five system kinda confusing? Should use a poll again like last month?

According to that original topic, there is a korean translation already.

Or how about it's just another year. Humans invented time so it really is meaningless.

If anything more damage will be done on December 31, 2107 as FAT32 can no longer store dates beyond that day. Oh wait, we probably won't be using that file system anymore...
(although you could argue it isn't much used for today, but still it is widely used for SD cards, android especially, and any format of storage meant to be swapped between different OSes)

Go figure, olddays beats me to it again.

The open-source Mozilla project said Thursday it won't comply with a U.S. Department of Homeland Security request to remove a Firefox add-on that helps redirect Web traffic for sites that have been seized by the government.

What do you guys think? Is it good that mozilla is helping to support freedom of speech/content on the internet? Or do you think they're aiding in illegal activity by assisting in circumventing what was previously done by the law?

I haven't seen this page. I remember chip saying that he wanted to start one but I don't ever recall seeing a link to it or knowledge that it was ever made.
