TightVNC is a free remote control software package derived from the popular VNC software. With TightVNC, you can see the desktop of a remote machine and control it with your local mouse and keyboard, just like you would do it sitting in the front of that computer.
TightVNC client can connect to realVNC servers.
I tried TightVNC server and client on Win XP, Win2000 server, Linux, and Java VM.
A Navy man who got mad when someone mocked him as a "nerd" over the Internet climbed into his car and drove 1,300 miles from Virginia to Texas to teach the other guy a lesson.
Investigators say Tavares boiled over when Anderson called him a nerd and posted a digitally altered photo making Tavares look like a skinny boy in high-water pants, holding a gun and a laptop under a "Revenge of the Nerds" sign.
ATHENS, Greece - Researchers in northern Greece have uncovered two massive tusks of a prehistoric mastodon that roamed Europe more than 2 million years ago . tusks that could be the largest of their kind ever found.
One of the tusks measured 16-feet-4-inches long.
They live 55 years, 3.5 meters (11 1/2 feet) tall at the shoulder, and weighed around six tons.
Linux's founder, dislikes the GNOME desktop. In 2005, for example, Torvalds posted on the GNOME-usability list that "I personally just encourage people to switch to KDE."
Torvalds feels this way, in part, due to his perception that "This 'users are idiots, and are confused by functionality' mentality of Gnome is a disease. If you think your users are idiots, only idiots will use it. I don't use Gnome, because in striving to be simple, it has long since reached the point where it simply doesn't do what I need it to do."
A 27-year-old man described as one of the world's most prolific spammers was arrested Wednesday, and federal authorities said computer users across the Web could notice a decrease in the amount of junk e-mail.
Robert Alan Soloway is accused of using networks of compromised "zombie" computers to send out millions upon millions of spam e-mails.
cat reads the compressed image file and pipes it to gzip.
-d tells gzip to decompress. gzip's stdout is piped to dd.
dd writes to floppy fd0
If you have two floppy drives, and most people don't, you can just run:
dd if=/dev/fd0 of=/dev/fd1
You can have more fun if you know how to use netcat. netcat lets you send data over your network. You get the drill.
I haven't tried to copy/clone a hard drive this way yet.
Anyone want to try this on a working hard drive? Let me know how it works out.
How about this:
Do the above with a USB hard drive plugged in to your computer. Then take the USB drive to an identical computer and decompress the image there.
The Linux kernel recognises the USB drive as /dev/sda. So on a single partition USB drive, you would use /dev/sda1.
WASHINGTON - For the first time astronomers have discovered a planet outside our solar system that is potentially habitable, with Earth-like temperatures, a find researchers described Tuesday as a big step in the search for "life in the universe."
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A spacecraft orbiting Mars has scanned huge deposits of water ice at its south pole so plentiful they would blanket the planet in 36 feet of water if they were liquid, scientists said on Thursday.
Deep below the ocean's surface, blue whales are singing, and for the first time, scientists think they know why. Researchers from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography recorded the sounds and say they offer new insight into the behavior of the passenger jet-sized animals.
I just put in this new NetGear JFS524 switch on my network. It replaces several 4, 5, and 8 port switches and fits in a 19 inch rack.
I got 15 devices on it so far. Not are devices are full computers. I've got VoIP, cameras, wireless devices, LAN drives, etc...
It's been one whole day and the switch hasn't gotten hot yet. I've got a fan blowing on it though.
Power is delivered via a standard cable like the one found on the back of your computer. It plugs in the back of the device.
The picture looks like there's two fans on the side, but there really is none.
New York city's first robotic parking garage is set to open next month at 123 Baxter St., near Hester St. (in Chinatown).
The underground garage is being rigged with sensors, laser beams, turn tables and elevators that go up, down and sideways to park cars with efficiency and precision.
