disparity. Your cheap parts are made by slave labor in China. If we


Yes, but that's not the only reason.
The slave labor costs the same, but equipment gets cheaper anyway, because of eceonmies of scale and cheaper parts and better design and what not, without paying the slaves less. So the price will go down anyway for market reasons other than labor costs.

single ethernet interface bound to 65 different networks. It's
providing firewall and VPN services for dozens of different
subscribers, each on their own private VLAN. Wild stuff.

Doesn't that mean it's handling ALL the traffic for those 65 networking? And isn't that a bottleneck or single point of failure?

to get it from them. What you do is get a simple cable modem.. then
after the installer leaves, you clone your computer MAC address into
the external interface of the router.. because they will lock your IP

address to your MAC address.. so that you cannot simply change your IP

to some random one and mess with other subscribers on the network.

Yes. Found this out the hard way. Always take note of the first mac address you touch your provider with, FIOS does similar.

What if you buy a new computer? You have to pay to have an installer

come back out? That's ridiculous. you should be able to just pick up
the phone (which is still evil)

I originally hooked up my linux box to my fios. then due to marriage considerations, I put the wireless router on the fios connection, and I couldn't get it to work for days until I heard about the mac address thing. I typed the mac address of my linux box's ethernet card into the router and voila worked like a charm.

Oh godz.. I'd rather discuss religion.. (Yes I know EMACS and vi is a

religious discussion but still.. Let's talk politics instead)

That's because the vi and emacs users haven't tried eclipse yet.
If they did, there'd be no discussion.

vi is the One True Editor! All else is inferior!

Does vi still wrap lines at the screen width? Sigh. :-)

are just running a personal service, that might be good enough. But if

you want an IP that you can really count on never changing, I know at

least some cable co's offer business class service with a fixed IP and

with explicit permission to run servers, handle your own email etc. As


Ace offered me for I think $25 a month a specially programmed router that you attach to your internet connection and it makes a vpn connection to their house where they assign you a static ip.
I didn't want to pay the $25, and also, all your traffic in and out now routes through them, via the best FIOS/cablevision route. It's not going to make things faster, but you do get a static ip.
Then there's the rules you're breaking with fios/cv about not running stuff at your house, you're still doing it over their service even if you're bouncing everything off ace.

Verizon, on the other hand, is notorious for gratuitously changing
your IP address. I've heard reports of it happening for no good reason

sometimes as often as every eight hours.

DSL or FIOS? I've had pretty good luck. I've had the same fios IP for months now.

Dunno about 'old' vi, but vim has both wrap and nowrap modes available.

Why don't you just use dyndns.org and be done with it? That way you can

just use the domain name you pick and it figures out what the IP is.
Works from inside your network too.

Questionable reliability, you get what you pay for.
I've used yi.org (before they went away) dyndns, no-ip and a few others, and except for no-ip, they've all had multi-hour sometimes multi-day outages, so if you actually RELY on their dns you get screwed occasionally.

dyndsn.org works great for forward DNS resolution (A/CNAME records),

but can't help you, at all, with reverse DNS resolution (PTR records)

or RBLs that have your IP listed in a block list.

not to mention that it doesn't solve the problem of your isp blocking ports 80 and 25.

It's finally happened.. after years of construction... The L train

has gone automatic.

I thought aside from signalling, the problem was being able to supply power to a lot of trains in a small area.

The problem was getting rid of the engineers without getting killed by the transit workers union. In the end they came up with the lovely solution of keeping the engineers on the trains, but they won't actually be *operating* the trains.

This is another example of "progress."

Jesus people. Use dyndns.org to VNC from work, serve out your porn collection, web interface to download stuff from newsgroups while you're out, setup a game server for the weekend, as a dev server - you don't use DDNS for enterprise solutions. If you want that, then pay the enterprise prices and buck up for the service to your house or pay for some rackspace. Otherwise, expect your shit to go down/break/be blocked.

Blocks on port 80 can be overcome with port redirection. More and more mail servers are using port 587 for mail these days anyway; there is also tunneling you could do from a proxy, etc. Again, if you want a static IP, go pay for one.

I wasn't aware eclipse was available for the terminal.

It Is Actually That Amazing.

How can blocks on port 80 be overcome with port redirection?
I'm not trying to be a dick, I'm just always trying to add to my arsenal of ways of getting around firewalls?
At work I can't web out to anything except port 80, and at home I can't listen on port 80 so it's impossible for me to hit my webserver from work. You know a way around this?
