Science Gifts For Kids?

Munk Re:Anonymous Coward (368 comments)

Definitely agree with ThinkGeek. They have great stuff. I just ordered 3 things from them yesterday for various kids that I have to buy for (including my own).

BYU Prof. Says University Classrooms Will Be "Irrelevant" By 2020

Munk Re:Sure it will. (469 comments)

I agree with you to a certain point. I did my undergrad at a brick and mortar school and loved it and can't imagine wanting to miss out on the whole "college experience". However, a couple of years ago I decided to add some resume fodder, and started my online Masters in Computer Science thru Colorado State University. We watch/listen to the same lectures that they do on campus and do the same assignments. So the course work is the same, but you do miss out on getting to know your professors which is a negative (but only a small one). However, I have made some pretty good friends while doing the online program while working on group projects, so the student networking is still there to a certain degree.

Content filtering for free wi-fi

Munk Munk writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Munk (59689) writes "My in-laws own a truckstop and want to start offering free wi-fi to their customers. Since the wi-fi would cover the restaurant and other public areas, they don't want folks surfing porn where other customers could see it. And as a side benefit, I would also like to be able to block P2P traffic that would use excessive bandwidth. Does anybody have an suggestions for a setup to handle this sort of thing? I would obviously like to use linux and other free software if possible."
