You are all getting totally neurotic .....

It's about the level that Seti politics has sunk to these days.

About time I walked elsewhere.

That would be nice, but you're too addicted to your righteous manner to do that, so we'll continue to see you here.

You can bury your head in the sand if you wish. Before you do you should be aware of the numerous cases where hackers gain control of webcams and turn them on. Such footage sells for a premium in the dark corners of the internet. If you have a camera on a TV, tell me again why it won't be hacked where there are financial and other perverted reasons to do it?

I know you want to assume the best in people. That might work in your neighborhood. I'm telling you it doesn't work globally. Better to assume the worst.

"Dan Goodin @ ArsTechnica.com" wrote:
The HTTPS cryptographic scheme, which protects millions of websites, is susceptible to a new attack that allows hackers to pluck e-mail addresses and certain types of security credentials out of encrypted pages, often in as little as 30 seconds.

The technique, scheduled to be demonstrated Thursday at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas, decodes encrypted data that online banks and e-commerce sites send in responses that are protected by the widely used transport layer security (TLS) and secure sockets layer (SSL) protocols. The attack can extract specific pieces of data, such as social security numbers, e-mail addresses, certain types of security tokens, and password-reset links. It works against all versions of TLS and SSL regardless of the encryption algorithm or cipher that's used.

1377531

Finally got the go ahead & we spent all weekend there. Everything now networked with documentation. 18 ports out of the 20 in the building active. Number 20 which was one of the fire damaged ones is inactive. We found out why. The renovators/replacement companies forgot to rewire that port. back to the insurers to get that done.

Number 1 has never worked even before the switches were installed. We've tried tracing the cable but got nowhere....that one's puzzling.

Spent all day there today changing all the networking printers to RJ45 instead of USB. Wanting to secure the network, found that BT changed the IP of the router (no documentation provided to the client, even after upgrading their phone system). Using the IP to get into the router, it just hung there waiting....Thanks BT.

Looking at the 2nd picture in the link above, you will see 2 cable looms, 1 switch & 1 BT control panel. 1st cable loom RJ45, 2nd loom telephone. 12 phones in total on site so why 16 connections on phone control panel? Why 6 connected to RJ45 loom?

Building Alarm on seperate dedicated line.

Any BT engineer care to comment?

Put a TDR on it and find out where the break is. I'm assuming you know where it is supposed to go. If not that is a different story.

Interesting but un-neccessary on my part. That's all down to the landlord of the building with fixtures & fittings & his clients. Wasted too much time on this one so as far as I'm concerned, that's his problem.

I agree. They didn't want to adopt it because it would show too many referees up as not being up to the mark. It's being forced on them and about time too.

Whatever next?

I suppose it won't be long before all footwear manufacturers permanently install rf tags into their goods.....

Edit: Sometimes....just sometimes.........

Simple is best

Just goes to prove that the best technology ever is simply.......

Nice, yes, but what's wrong with using the wind. We've used wind for thousands of years to propel ships across the oceans, along the rivers, across lakes.
