Squid

I would use squid and a dedicated firewall / router distribution. I like pfsense. It has great features, and is GUI driven for most things. It comes with squid installed. You can download a livecd that will also install on a minimalist computer. You will need 2 NICs unless you like VLANs. http://www...

Smart Phone Address books

That puts Blackberry users generally in the same boat as users of Android and Palm Pre smartphones, which also upload their contacts to third-party servers. This practice would seem to violate the policy guidance provided on this forum. .... I have not found a smart phone yet that is good about kee...

Note that The Earl said "in my case." It's not accurate to then conclude that "that puts Blackberry users generally in the same boat...". Many Blackberry users can choose to use the Blackberry Desktop to synchronize with Outlook (or similar apps), and never involve third-party servers. If they are ...

Doesn't matter

I have a Yaesu VX-150, and a VX-6r. I would not recommend the VX-6r, nor Yaesu's quality generally, but the 150 is a good radio. My ICOM radio is a pain to program. I don't think I would even try without the programming software. The ICOM I have (a 2200H mobile) is a SOLID radio. I don't think it ma...

This would make configurations much easier to manage, although I have no problems working through putty, and correcting my typos in the code every fe...

How to I get the satellite composite video into the video projector for satellite broadcasts? The FM group has graciously provided a video projector for our meetinghouse. We had heard this might be coming to all satellite equipped meetinghouses. For us, at least, the rumor was true. How do we hook ...

Glad to see a nudge for people so inclined to get their license. We have a Technician class starting in 2 weeks for just such folks. What kind of radio does your wife have? (It doesn't sound like a hand-held.) Most amateur radios operate on 12V, so in a pinch you can hook them to a car battery and ...
