How Does Your Personal Data Center Measure Up?

jm92956n Re:Nothing fancy (266 comments)

Up until this previous December, I had as my only computer an Emachines 500i. It had its original 10gb drive and (put on your jealousy hate) a full 128mb of RAM. I replaced it with another Emachine that I bought for next to nothing. I always ran stripped down Linux distros on it and the speed of it surprised everyone who used it. It still works fine, I just don't turn it on anymore.

ICANN considering eliminating Whois service

jm92956n jm92956n writes  |  more than 6 years ago

jm92956n (758515) writes "According to the NY Times and the Associated Press, ICANN is considering eliminating Whois, an internet directory that contains the owner and the owner's contact information of each domain. In recent years many new domains have been registered with registrars that, for a small extra fee, will not disclose owner information to Whois in order to prevent potential abuse from spammers who long ago discovered the service contained a virtual treasure-trove of valid email addresses. Privacy advocates welcome the change, but there are concerns that it will no longer be easily possible to track down the owner of a domain."
