    Who Will Win Bush Or Kerry?

    I'm Canadian so I can't vote. I would like to see Kerry win. IMHO Kerry has better domestic policies than the President.

    Nicely done! I've got a Gmail account, but, don't have any invites now. That's exactly what I do when I have invites; I give them away freely. If and when I get some more invites I'll post here.

    Well said! After MistaMatt90 said his goodbyes at G4 yesterday it got me to thinking about why I post there. I couldn't think of any reasons to stay there. This is my new cyber home. It's good to be here. hitest

    Cracking Down On Hackers

    Wow, That is a frightening article indeed! There are hackers out there for sure. A few years ago when I was just starting out in Linux I was running an old P166 from my home, I had it set-up as an Apache server, running Caldera OpenLinux 2.3. I didn't know anything about security and was just happily hosting a silly personal page on the unit. It was wide open to the Internet. It ran successfully until some jerk hacked it and locked me out of my root account so I couldn't remove him. I had to run fdisk and wipe the drive to get rid of him. There are indeed lots of freaks out there. Very cool story, thanks. hitest

    A Tech Support Classic

    That is indeed a classic, Nerelda! Your story reminds me of all the times I have to help my Dad by long distance with his computer

    I think I've got 30-50 thousand miles of cable in my tool shed; I'll drag it through the forest towards you today. Seriously though, I hope your cable company will soon carry CFH. It is fantastic to see Leo on TV again; he's in good form as usual.

    If you guys know any Linux gurus then let's invite them here. I'm a mid level Linux user, but, not a super advanced user. I've used Linux for two years now. I've written a few super users hopefully they'll show up here. later, hitest

    Cfh Canada

    Hi Folks, I'm a Canadian and have been happily watching Leo's new show! His new show is better than the original IMHO. He's had some interesting segments that're enjoyable to watch. He had one sysadmin guy on who showed how he built his own PVR. Leo has said on the show that he thinks that there is a good chance that he'll be able to market his show for America.

  18. I see in this forum there's a place for Windows support. Is there a possibility of a section devoted to Linux/Unix where *nix users could post questions, help users? Thank you. hitest

    Linux Support Forum

    I'm running Mandrake 10 right now and it's great. I was running Red Hat 9. When you're ready to install one of the distros you mentioned I suggest you go to the hardware compatibility site for the distro. For example, Mandrake has a listing of all of the hardware that is known to work with Linux. You want to make sure your video card, NIC, modem, sound card, and CD ROM drive are Linux compatible.

    Linux Support Forum

    Wow! Thanks Besttechie! I didn't think I'd get a reply so soon. Cool. I've been requesting a Linux forum at another board that shall remain nameless *cough G4 cough* The other forum is good; it's just I miss having a place to hang with other users. Thanks again hitest

    How Did You Get Your Name?

    My handle is a nickname for high performance gas and also a nickname for my favorite type of alcoholic beverage. I've gone by the nickname of hitest for a few years on several boards. My other handle on another board is nuclearwasted. It's great to see familiar faces here
