Internet Access While Sailing? (Revisited)

swb311 Re:Winlink 2000 (308 comments)

Winlink is not only ghetto-ly slow, but also trashes our HF bands WAY too much to be considered an asset.

Also its' proprietary software sucks big hairy balls.

Where Should We Focus Our Space Efforts?

swb311 Re:The Moon (703 comments)

1000cm * 1000cm * 1000cm == 1,000,000 Litres

I thought the whole point of the metric system was to avoid stupid units like "DistanceMeasureCubed"??

First Look At Wild New "Level 10" Concept PC Case

swb311 Re:Terrible (287 comments)

Hate to troll, but - £4000 doesn't buy much of a superbike. £7-12000 will get you a mediocre stock BMW/Ducati. Some rice-rockets are slightly cheaper but lack most of the sex appeal. I've had tons of women ask for comment positively on and/or ask for rides on my crappy $6500 Kawasaki rice-rocket and had a similarly positive response to the $3000 Vespa scooter I drove in college. Guess showering helps?

WHY OH APPLE OVERLORDS do you feel the need to cock-tease us with these wonderful little devices (like the iPhone) and then cock-block us into contracts, limited wifi usage, your set of pre-approved applications, etc.


Apple, you used to be cool.

I'm done with your fascist ways, I'm buying Windoze!!

Central Anti-Virus For Small Business?

swb311 Re:Kaspersky - Support for Windows & Linux (359 comments)

We've been using the Kaspersky Enterprise Space Security suite for around 3 months and I'm very impressed. It's much better than the McAfee total protection plus we were using originally, and functions flawlessly with Windows workstations, Windows servers, terminal servers, linux servers, mobile devices, etc. However it's exchange anti-spam product sucks. balls.
