No free lunch!

Voice drop outs on Vista and Comcast.

No need for detective work.

Comcast has a voice offering.

No evidence; just suspicion.

BLUEHOST made some kind of change. BUNDERINGALONG was offline. And, it was totally lost. Luckily Google had a cached copy of one of the posts. I could identify the theme. Put that back. Reuploaded the old posts. I have to recreate the CATEGORIES and any other settings. Argh!

IDENTIFICATION: Proving identity

*** begin quote ***

Proving identity is likely to remain remarkably difficult in a world where it is trivial to take over someone’s computer from half a world away and operate it as your own. As long as that remains true, building a completely trustable system will remain virtually impossible.

*** end quote ***

I don’t agree.

Every Internet Service Provider KNOWS who’s paying the bill for connectivity.

They can ENFORCE identification for every computer that connects to their circuits.

It’s not just “retail” either. Businessed have to connect or “peer”. They know what is coming through their transit points.

Sorry, but IPv6 or proper administration would allow age verification and identity management.

The ISPs aren’t interested because the current problems are no skin off their nose.

It’s all about the benjamins.

Posted: under Uncategorized.

dk (1) Wifi reconnect incessently after apply the last airport upgrade. Am I missing something?

Nothing obvious. Can see the intermittent problem. Need to leave it for a hardware check. Argh!

ok (2) Removing applications. Do I need a cleaner?

No registry so nothing needed.

no (3) iWeb partial publish to 1and1?

No! Software can’t do it. Maybe IWEB09? Don’t know yet.

no (4) ipconfig /release /renew /all in “Mac Book Air” land?

Can’t do it with the wifi airport. If you’d do a hardwire lan, you can. (Argh!)

no (5) redefine paste to always be “unformatted”

No, that’s application specific.

ok (6) Security How do I restrict access to my machine when I’m on a lan?

Can force users to limited roles. Checked settings. I’m OK.

ok (7) Proper disconnect of the Verizon dongle

Just yank it. No big deal.

WEBSITE: Moving RFL to hosted


Posted: under Uncategorized.

http://www.reinkefaceslife.com/ is currently hosted on the free, and unequaled, wordpress dot com. To use javascript, it has to be hosted elsewhere. Sadly, I have to move. Argh.

I registered reinkefacedlife on bluehost. I installed wordpress (v 2622). I exported reinkefaceslife. But couldn’t import it. Argh!

This is a disaster waiting to happen. Never use certain types of web based emails for administrative purposes.
