MPG Depends on
how long your extension cable is.
Do you think that she needs consoling?
Wii'll never know.
The top of the step doesn't disappear.
He's clearly dead centre of the stand, where there's normally a staircase, which normally doesn't have a lip.
Not that I'm saying 100% this isn't photoshopped but that isn't any evidence at all.
I didn't mean leaving her wireless open, I meant if they access her autologined laptop with her autoauthed wifi, they're pretty much free to use it at that point. Either they have her permission or they've triggered the alarm in which case I doubt they'll browse digg while the police are en route.
Obviously those outside leeching off her broadband are likely get told where to stick it, if they can get past the WPA2, etc.
Why shouldn't my mum have autologin?
There's nothing important on her laptop, and if she wants to leave it open to the world to use it's not an issue.
I'm not too fussed about them using her wifi either.
That's more or less what was said in 1982 when the navy was being decommissioned.
Perhaps you should have a look at what's going on in the Fulf of Iraq if you think the Royal Navy aren't quite busy enough at the moment.
Baldrick made a nugget of the purest green, IIRC.
Also, the stealth implications are more for aircraft and ships than for people. British camouflage has very little black, mainly greens and browns (for temperate climes at least). If the aircraft absorbs all the radiation and doesn't reflect any back, there's no way of picking it up on radar, much like the current stealth technology, where a big evil aircraft shows up about the size of a large bird.
Of course linux/windows/bsd can do this
But it's not easy.
I've been doing it for years. rsync to an rsync server, then ln back in time, so that you have multiple revisions of your files without taking up more space. Or use CVS/SVN/WebDAV/whatever you want.
I am a professional sysadmin. Your mother probably isn't (and most of the Anonymous Cowards here don't seem to be either), though she (and you) can use Time Machine. The point isn't whether or not it's possible, it's how easy it is to use. If you don't need to use Time Machine then don't. You don't have to pay for it either, you can run Linux, be happy, and shut up. The Time Machine fans are fans because they can spend more time doing things they want to do instead of writing backup scripts.
And as for RAID 1, yeah, go ahead, run that. Then delete an important file by mistake (and don't say you never have) and cry. It's not a backup.
Not quite, Phil
It wouldn't be hard at all to write a webscraper that can connect via port 80 to hotmail, gmail, yahoo or any number of free online webmail services, not to mention WebDAV connecting to Hotmail.
Microsoft did have plans to charge a nominal fee to connect to Hotmail using WebDAV (how Outlook connects to Hotmail) but AFAIK they never actually did it.
