Driver Privacy Act Introduced In US Senate

gunnaraztek Hoping the data is valid and authenticateable (69 comments)

Here's me hoping that those recorders are accurate!

If they are i would much rather like them telling the story of a crash than multiple seperate arguments from the people in a crash.

I'd want them if and only if they are accurate and verifiable!

But, that's an iffy if...

How Google Fiber Could Do Some National Good, Or At Least Scare the Carriers

gunnaraztek Re:AT&Ts model (163 comments)

Iceland here...

100 Mb/s down 100 Mb/s up 240 GB cap, get over that, same cap, yep internet stops :P

HOWEVER they do not cap or count domestic traffic, so domestic proxies are a godsend!

This is during a high usage time: http://speedtest.net/result/2502948610.png though i do max 100 Mb/s on torrent all the time, up and down :P

Ask Slashdot: Dealing With an Advanced Wi-Fi Leech?

gunnaraztek Disable wi-fi encryption... (884 comments)

... enable dhcp (no default gateway)
connect the access point to a openvpn server NOT THE INTERNET
connect the openvpn server to the internet

[access point]---[openvpn server]---([router]---[modem])---[internet]

So it goes like this for you:
you connect to your wi-fi
you authenticate with a certificate to your openvpn server
you use internet

It goes like this for him:
oooh open wi-fi ... connect
oooh ip, thanks
ping google.com ERROR
hax somebank.com ERROR
*cry*

Mumble has very good encryption, if the host uses proper keys. Mumble can use the same encryption keys as websites do.

Suggestions For Music Hosting?

gunnaraztek Host in Iceland... (225 comments)

... no hosting services in iceland have ANY upload limits, they do-however have "download" limits, which means data from other countries _TO_ the server is metered, and quite expensive but ANY upload (from the server to the internet) is completely free.

Just a matter of making a deal, i'd reccomend contacting x.is and 1984.is.

Additionally, a 100 mbit connection at home in iceland is only like 7k ISK (~60 USD) with a 250 gb download (see above) cap and NO upload cap. (See: http://hringdu.is/page/yfirlit/ljos/ / http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fhringdu.is%2Fpage%2Fyfirlit%2Fljos%2F)

Here's my speed (50/50 mbit connection, ~4k ISK (~30 USD) a month) http://www.speedtest.net/result/1801028229.png

p.s. data within iceland is not metered at all, up or down.
p.p.s. if you do hit the "download" limit, they don't charge you, they slow the connection down to ~4 KB/s so you can't keep downloading but domestic speeds stay the same all the time (so yes i proxy to friends when i go over my cap).
p.p.p.s. A friend of mine even runs an anime streaming site from one of those connections in iceland at http://fluffy.is/ it runs quite well and has for about a year now on the current connection.

Enjoy

Stop using custom browser "tricks"

gunnaraztek gunnaraztek writes  |  about a year and a half ago

gunnaraztek (1077439) writes "I suggest the END of "user agent" strings, and the END of custom browser hacks.

Just add a check for features the browser supports, use a proper CSS reset for all browsers (or have them include it, nice but doubtful)."
