Should Microsoft Be Required To Extend Support For Windows XP?

issicus Re:Define Support (645 comments)

I'm not sure this applies but why would 'supporting' an OS be any different from any other piece of software? I can't really think of a good example though. who cares, except for china anyway, just get windows 7 .

issicus nielsen ratings (146 comments)

I had the nielsen ratings person come to my house, he asked if I have a TV I said yes (I have a PC connected to a 20" and a "TV" (720p 32") sitting about 3 feet away). I told him I watch Hulu, play video games the like on my "TV" and that is all. After about 20 minutes on the phone he tells me that it does not count as a TV and thank you for my time.

Iran plans to unplug the Internet, launch its own "clean" alternative

issicus issicus writes  |  about 2 years ago

issicus (2031176) writes "Iran topped a recent list of repressive regimes that most aggressively restrict Internet freedom. The list, published by Reporters Without Borders, is a part of the 2012 edition of the organization’s Enemies of the Internet report. One of the details addressed in that report is the Iranian government’s bizarre plan to create its own “clean” Internet. The proposed system, an insular nation-wide intranet that is reportedly isolated from the regular Internet, would be heavily regulated by the government. -Ryan Paul"

Ask Slashdot: Phone line to DSL modem

issicus issicus writes  |  about 2 years ago

issicus (2031176) writes "I expect not many people have a problem with the line to their DSL modem. I have an old house with old wiring and recently it randomly stopped working. The problem, a phone jack. The question, is running a high quality (shielded?) phone wire directly to the modem going to do anything?"

ISP Increase Bandwidth Without Notifying Users

issicus issicus writes  |  more than 2 years ago

issicus (2031176) writes "I recently visited my ISP's web site and discovered that they had increased the bandwidth of their basic package, which I have. I proceeded to call tech support and after about 10 minutes my bandwidth went from 700kbps too 2.5mbps. Is it common practice for ISP's to change their data rates with out informing users, you may want to check yours."

Ask Slashdot: Consumer Firewalls

issicus issicus writes  |  more than 2 years ago

issicus (2031176) writes "I have always had a software (win7 and 3rd party) firewall in addition to a router firewall. Will these consumer firewalls actually protect me from from a serious attack? And if so which are are the most affective. From my rudimentary knowledge of how tcp/ip works it seems more likely that a connection would become subverted, rendering any firewall useless."

past future tech

issicus issicus writes  |  about 3 years ago

issicus writes "What happen to all those future technologies? Are they still in development? When will we have IR solar in a spray can, a transmission that switches gears by changing the speed of one gear, or a gmo that fixes concrete? I want to see some progress, preferably in the form of a bar. We hear about these new inventions but not when they fail."
