Re: For everyone wearing tin hats

Isn't your "argument" for it, pretty much the argument against it?

"how many of you have reviewed the hardware and software of your existing dumb modem/router"

Exactly.

So a router that could do "little" more than allow direct access to your network or compromise your DNS, now allows far, far more attack vectors.

And more unpatched attack vectors (less face it we can't rely on the vendors or ISP's to do it) is bad news.

I'm guessing as the Reg staff are based in London, it would hardly be worth their while paying a few hundred quid to travel up North to see potentially a crap show.

It's a tech journal after all.

I live nr Brum and if I want to find out about shows I simply subscribe to the local theaters. One plus side, is a smaller theaters around here often get some of the big comedy acts before they hit the main theaters and tickets cost about a tenner.

Why waste ER with a bloody nose, minor head wound or slip lip, all of which can cause a "lot" of blood.

Go one better

"Something simple like changing the lightbulbs from fluorescent tubes to LEDs can make a noticeable difference when, in the case of 4D-DC, you have 148 to deal with. In that situation it halved the cost of lighting and reduced the heat load created."

Why have lights on at all?

You only need them on when you are working in there. Even then only light the area you are in.
