  • I'm not concerned about that. I'm not looking for something that will hide terrorist activities, drug or human trafficking, money laundering etc. But a statement to the effect of... "we will never ...
  • Replied in IPVanish
    Thank you. This looks pretty interesting. Not sure I need fabulous performance but I certainly want to avoid any service that operates at a snails pace. I thought their FAQ's and Privacy Policy ...
  • Jim, Nobody is suggesting a brand new Mom and Pop shop. That's why I posted the original question to see if any folks here have solid experience with a provider. Please don't be offended but I ...
  • You make some valid points. However, as I said earlier, one needs a VPN provider you can trust. You have a business relationship with them and as far as I'm concerned that would need to include ...
  • Replied in Speed bump?
    Heh. You're using Private Internet Access? What do you think of their service? Speed doesn't seem to be a problem :-)
  • Yes, one needs to trust a VPN service provider. That's why I asked for any recommendations here. I'm kinda surprised more folks aren't using one. The VPN concentrator can see your unprotected ...
  • Exactly. I guess I'll try one of these: http://lifehacker.com/5935863/five-best-vpn-service-providers Most seem to offer month-to-month plans so I can try one out for a few weeks and then jump to ...
  • Thanks but not sure I want to use a consumer AV marketing company. Too much scope for the usual nonsense we see in the AV world with scams, heavy cross-selling, partner marketing etc. etc. Since ...
  • Replied in VPN Service
    Primarily for security when using public or semi-public internet access.
  • Created discussions VPN Service
    I like the security of a VPN especially when traveling. But at home I want more speed that I can get with DSL and, Comcast cable is the only option at this location. One of the downsides is... I ...
  • I don't do much video but I've discussed the software with a lot of folks who do (some professionally). The Pros all want and recommend Premiere. Most of the amateurs go for Vegas or Sony Movie ...
  • Different programs are likely to barf on different errors. So it might be a good idea to try and use XnView to identify your bad boys. It's been quite a while since I used XnView but doesn't it ...
  • Replied in Ooops..
    Depends how many rooms I had to play with. Well, I'd probably drop the mannequins.
  • Replied in Ooops..
    Yeah but this is way more cool:
  • I agree that is the current trend. I'm not so sure it will continue long term. With fewer and fewer people in full-time employment, the subscription model may run out of steam. Even for those who ...
  • I'm not sure why the OP wants to avoid the sub-woofer. I rather think he'll have to pay a significant premium to get the same quality from a system sans the sub. I decided that I liked the look of ...
  • The operating system and logical blocks are still constrained to the X or Y buckets. The physical blocks managed by the drive firmware dip into a combined X+Y bucket. Still, SSDs cope with multiple ...
  • It will look to Windows just like a HDD. Not really; it's kind of inherent to the whole logical .v. physical address mapping and wear leveling thing.
  • I'm not aware of any practical limitations either. In fact, SSD's are more flexible than HDD's in this regard. When you partition an HDD, the free space is divided between the partitions. Within ...
  • Some will frown upon it but a similar model works for me, save for a few programs that are difficult to shift from the default installation points. However, I do drop the "programs apps" prefix, so ...
