  1. Thanks Tommie, I'm guilty of forgetting to sign in...LMBO I actually come here daily, and read posts...but I need to remember to sign in, and participate from time to time. It's always good to show my face around here. Missed you guys!
  2. I agree completely, I have no idea why they care about what I do with my bandwidth. I'll have to check and make sure anything to do with remote management is disabled in my routers settings. Yes, the router is capable of setting mac filtering, and it also supports QOS based on mac addresses too. I've looked at QOS stuff on the web for quite some time. The best QOS stuff I could find for Comcast, and Tomato come from http://gazguzla.com/optimize-tomato-qos/. If anyone has any better QOS stuff for Comcast, please share.
  3. Mudman, got any good QOS stuff for Tomato firmware routers? Comcast is very picky with QOS stuff in Tomato. I think it has to do with them doing the traffic shaping on their end. I could never get any type of QOS to work with my Comcast connection.
  4. You could read this article and see if it helps. Good luck! http://www.wikihow.com/Reset-a-Windows-Vista-Password
  5. I only posted it because it's news. It concerns the American people, and we'll be curious to see how the current administration will handle this. When I said concerned, I meant we're genuinely worried. I didn't want you to think I meant it wasn't your concern. Just wanted to clarify.
  6. This evening is the first I've heard of this. Looks like this may be the crisis Biden was referring to. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/05/world/05patrol.html?_r=1
  7. He doesn't need to be talking to me specifically to offend me. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say he's offensive. I find it to be amusing that you, a perfect stranger to me says, "you should rise above ignorance". I don't have a problem with people not believing in God. You see, Jaml311 is in fact ignorant because he doesn't choose his words more carefully in a public forum when it comes to this sensitive topic. But you sir, you are downright rude for telling me, a perfect stranger how to act. You want me to shut up and swallow it. That will not happen. I will continue to be a voice for those here that are offended to the point that they wish something to be done about this. Whether he changes because the mods force him to, or he becomes more respectful on his own. I'll warn you from this point forward to not waste your breath when it comes to telling me how to act. You need to stop being so rude, and leave the modding to the mods. Even I know the process, I'm no mod...I know that I can't change the guy. But I know that if I voice my opposition, the mods may take notice and do something about it. I will not shut up, and I am sick and tired of it. In fact, I encourage anyone offended by Jaml311's poor choice of words, to speak up. The only way something will ever be done about it is not by shutting up and lying down...It's by letting it be know. Don't let AlucardHS or anyone else for that matter, try to intimidate you, make you feel stupid, or shut you up.
  8. If he continues to be offensive, why should I just sit back and be disrespected? I have a good feeling that I'm not the only one here that's offended by his little stupid remarks. It's offensive to anyone here that believes in ANY God. He's the minority, and he keeps starting it with the God bashing talk...Perhaps you should direct your questions and attention to the source?...He's the trouble maker, not me. If he were to shut his mouth, you would see that I would never say a word about God or religion for that matter. I'm no bible thumper, and even if I was I wouldn't talk about it here. Could you imagine if I was a bible thumper and took his opinionated approach to this forum? There would be such an outcry! Just because he's preaching differently, doesn't give him a pass.
  9. There you go again...You need to stop, you don't see me preaching because I believe in God and you don't. So stop talking shit!!!
  10. That was pretty interesting actually. I personally wouldn't be shocked if he was.

  12. I'll post even though I am running Comcast. I think Docsis 3.0 hit my area around Christmas time...maybe a little bit before even. :::..

  13. Welcome! Glad to have you here.
  14. Go with the latest free version of Avira. Also, I recommend you run the free version of Threatfire simultaneously. This is the setup I've used for quite some time and I'm happy with it. I go to this dude's site every so often to see if he recommends anything newer to his subscribers. He tests tons of programs and posts reviews of them on youtube. He also has sections of his blog and youtube videos that show you how to remove the most common malware. The best thing is, most of the good products are free. Back when I went to his site a lot, I came to the conclusion that for preventative measures against threats, the above two programs I listed were best for me. If you suspect you're already infected, dig around his blog a little deeper to get the necessary programs for a house cleaning. Here's the link to his site. Hope that helps! -Nick http://remove-malware.com/
  15. Thanks Tommie, even when I did that it took me to youtube and I got an error message that said, "The video you have requested is not available. If you have recently uploaded this video, you may need to wait a few minutes for the video to process." I guess me not seeing it is meant to be.
  16. When I click play, it's telling me the requested video is not available.
  17. I'm not big into streaming video channels and tv channels. But even though I'm ignorant on the subject, I'll throw out the two names that come to mind. Hulu and joost. Not sure how good these are. I've heard some good things on them in the past though. Good luck!
  18. Could it be that Comcast still throttles there service? I know my upload varies from 2500 kbps up to about 6700 kbps throughout the week. I think it's because they either throttle it or it's that powerboost crap.
  19. That's all those techs ever do is lie. I've had appointments and had nobody show up. I wouldn't even get a phone call either to let me know they cancel or postpone the appointment. Whether I deal with a Comcast tech over the phone, or a tech in my house...they always lie. I've been promised things over the phone, only to be let down. They'll tell you that an alteration to a service bundle won't cause a penalty charge to your account...Then you'll get the bill and see a penalty charge. Even though they promise to wave the fee, or say there will be no fee. I love the actual service itself, however I don't like their customer service one bit. The techs are hit and miss, either they're good to me or they're complete trash. I'm basing all this on my own experiences with them in my area. -Nick
  20. I thought I should join in since this thread has been around for a while. So here are two pictures of me. The little guy is my son. By the way, I've enjoyed all the pictures of everyone and their children and/or grandchildren.
  21. One last question, at newegg.com they have Athlon x2, and the Athlon 64x2. Which one of those did I want again? Sorry for all the questions.
  22. Okay, minus the video editing then, what brand should I go with for the tower? I'm sick of HPs...but if it's what's best for the money, then I guess I'll settle.
