Actually ToggleKeys has been around since Windows 2000. But unfortunately it makes the same noise for both enable and disable

not here - on Windows 7 -
as said, it makes a "high pitch for on, lower pitch for off"

Yeah, I caught that bit, and back to back it is noticeable. Problem is 5-10 minutes apart I got no idea which beep I'm hearing ...(I should probably mention my hearing sucks)... So I just kind of (mentally) tuned out that part of the feature years ago.

Obviously the deactivating itself would not be ideal... possibly for that reason, it does have a setting: press numlock key for 5 seconds to activate.

I never did figure out what was deactivating it or why, it was just constantly, suddenly not there. But hay WTH, I just enabled it now to see what'll happen this time. Perhaps it will stay on.

If you have been trying multiple versions to get something working there could be a configuration conflict in the registry (things have gotten moved from time to time). Try deleting the T-Clock info from the registry to get it to start clean and see if that makes a difference.

Also assuming you do have show the default windows clock enabled (it is a requirement), does the clock window totally disappear, or change size when you run T-Clock?

Telephonics,
on Windows 7, you can set the Capslock and Numberlock to make a sound when changed (high pitch for on, lower pitch for off).

Could that be a solution?

Or could disabling both completely be a solution?

Actually ToggleKeys has been around since Windows 2000. But unfortunately it makes the same noise for both enable and disable, and it has a very bad habit of deactivating itself for some odd reason ... Which is why - having a habit of missing shifts and hitting capslock myself - I gave up on using it a few years back.

USA Today’s William Cummings: “White House blows cover of CIA chief in Afghanistan” The White House accidentally blew the cover of the top CIA officer in Afghanistan Saturday, when his name and title were released in an e-mail sent to reporters who traveled with President Obama on his surprise visit to Bagram Air Field. The CIA officer’s identity was released as part of a list of U.S. officials who were attending a military briefing with Obama at Bagram, the Washington Post reported. The individual was identified as “Chief of Station,” a term used for the top spy in a country, according to the Post

Just remember they're humans too.

I fail to see why I should bother focusing on something that they themselves have obviously forgotten. They have positioned themselves as grand and glorious superhero inquisitors. With massively invasive machines that catalog everyone's waking moments. These systems just beg to be abused ... And they are already. They just had some shit on the news about the fuzz abusing the in car background checking systems in a recreationally frequent fashion. These new and incredibly sophisticated systems will pull up everything including your credit/employment history, tax records, and etc. on anyone with just a tag number. Like the tag numbers that they have a dedicated camera to automatically scan for ... At All Times ... Trolling for PC excuses..

Now at what point exactly during a routine traffic stop does a police officer have any rational need for somebody's ****ing Credit Report?? ...Or employment history for that matter.

I can't find a link to the current news report, but I did find this on google http://www.copwatch.org/databaseabuse.html ...So it's apparently not just a singular isolated incident.

And that of course is just the local yokels that haven't quite been mitliterized to the point of completely forgetting their - To Protect and Serve - purpose for employment.

I have trouble calling anybody 'vermin' until culpability is proven.

By the time we're all running around with chips in our heads that tell us when to report to the rehabilitation center for having "improper" thoughts ... I'm pretty sure it'll be too late.

[/b] There is a plant, indigenous to New Zealand, which trampers (people who like roughing it, walking over the mountains) call a "Bush Lawyer", because it has hooks on it so that it clings to your legs/clothes - anything it touches - and is well-nigh impossible to shake off. You learned to avoid the thing like the plague. Norton virus software is like that - only worse. Hooks all over the place. As it was being uninstalled, it kept saying things like "Are you sure?", "Tell us why you are uninstalling this software", and so forth, all the while desperately trying to phone home (in anticipation of which, I had already disconnected the laptop from the Internet).

The Norton Removal Tool (by Symantec) is the best fix for this that I've found. Their "uninstaller" is only a quickie dust-off that assumes you will reinstall. The Removal Tool OTOH is what's called a scrubber that eradicates every last visage of the software to make sure the system is pristine enough to get a newer version installed - which of course nobody in their right mind is ever foolish enough to do once they finally escape. smiley

Most AV suites have a (scrubber level) removal tool, so they are (for me) the automatic goto for getting things cleaned up fast.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

@MilesAhead - That is interesting, as I've never seen the NRT fail. Some of the older ones were a bit finicky about exactly which version of which suite was being removed ... But orphaning a driver? Damn! That's a new one on me. any chance it could have been a bugg masquerading as an AV component?

The IC [Intelligence Community] are some of the most surveilled humans in history. They know everything they do is gone over with a fine-toothed comb — by their peers, their bosses, their lawyers, other agencies, the president, and sometimes Congress. They live watched, and they don’t complain about it.

In all the calls for increased oversight, the basics of human nature gets neglected. You’re not going to teach the spooks this is wrong by doing it to them more.

Touché.  Sad

Perhaps, but if the clowns in congress start getting fried by restaurant heat lamp level spotlights for some of their "perfectly innocent", "private" conversations ... The funding for the spook programs should start drying up rather quickly.

Internal oversight for the IC is less about toeing the line and more about pushing the envelop to see who find or create the stretchiest loophole without getting hung by it. It's nothing more than an orgy level CYA gangbang. Whose the pivot for this free-for-all..? We are!

they decided to jump on that Godaddy /Microsoft combo hosted 365 exchange  !!:(
I can say this .  IF???>>> they ever get ther bugs worked out,  This is one amazing commo package.  I am not a "frills tech".  I only care a bout reliability and speed.

Can't speak for GoDaddy's offering, but I have clients that subscribed directly to the full MS Office365 package which they're accessing through a "business grade" AT&T DSL connection, and the results are exceptionally impressive. At least to my eyes.

Being that we're an MS Cloud services partner, I had to hang back and let you take point on this one. But yes, even with my unbridled hatred for all things ~Cloud~ I really like the Office365 hosted exchange ...(which is why we're an MS Cloud Partner)... And have a few quite happy clients on it as well.


In some respects. it's potentially more confusing for people who have been handling this stuff for years. Because the usual tools used to do it don't apply to Office365. You have learn (and use) the O365 admin interface. Microsoft has made it as simple as possible for a non-IT person to use. So much so that we "pros" sometimes get a little tripped up and confused because...well...it really can't be that easy, right?

Well guess what? It is. Grin

Yepper, it is that. My first trip out was a total baptism by fire because I had to pull 60 calendars from Google, 20 mail boxes from Yahoo, and 1,000+ contacts from all over hell and gone...and get it all stuffed into the remotely hosted Exchanger server straight and under/accessible to the right users. Only took a day or so to get sorted out and it's been smooth sailing from then on.

The COX modem supplies a full duplex signal which cannot be handled by "ANY" modern unmanaged switch.  He said the switch would only allow the single sided connection which would drop the speed to 100Mbit.  Those were HIS terms exactly.

 wallbash I can't even make words to respond to this with. wallbash


Right now, i order to give the office the speed it needs, I have the min office router running direct off the modem
I can then daisy-chain ALL the switches if i want to.  I tried out of modem to #1,oput of #1 to #2, then to #3, then to #4, THGEN finally to a system.,  Speed test:  139down+20 up.  Even with 15 other system plugged into various ports.

hub and spoke would probably be safer performance wise than a linear daisy chain to avoid cascading the traffic through a series of choke points across the switches, because the backbone speed of a switch will be faster than going port to port to port..

But - I should mention we also have Cox here (Not. My. Idea...) - my preferred configuration especially with cable companies is to bridge their device to an internal main router that can actually be controlled properly. So if that part of the configuration is working for you I'd stick with it (just make sure their box is bridged).

So our config (with Gb link all the way through) is Web-->Bridged Cox Box-->WatchGuard XTM26-->DMZ with public access servers in a CIDR /16-->WatchGuard XTM26-->LAN with users and stuff Wink


Now if you Cox box isn't bridged...that could easily be half the problem.


Did I mention bridging?

Come to think of it, were those (incorrectly labeled) WAN ports not used to string multiple switches together back in those old days? With cross-cables?

That's really quite bizarre ... AFAIK those have always been called uplink ports. Translation issue? Admin being funny? *Shrug* If you can post a model number I'll look it up to see what it are.

However:  the same feed into the same switch ended up at 5gbps on the systems after running through the same switches that had been running fine on the fiber.
Cable tech blames the switch and shows me where it drops off after the first Gigabit switch as though it was only a 100MBIT switch.  He says it is due to it being an "Unmanaged" switch.

Thanks for that, I like to start my morning with a good laugh. A switch being managed or unmanaged has absolutely nothing to do with it's backbone speed. Managed switches just offer one the ability to segment traffic to mitigate congestion from spreading so a few bad apples can't take down the entire broadcast zone.

Chances are that the switch is getting feed a network frame type (packet size if you will) that it can't handle causing it to badly fragment the traffic flowing across it.


Even though it worked fine on Fiber,  Wont work right on cable.
However.  If I run the cable into a gigabit Router with combined gigabit switch.  each output feed DOES get full 150.

As above theory suggested, this says jumbo packet size definition mismatch to me ... That sound about right to you too 40hz?


On a side note, if you have two ISP's and a DNS preference (I'm an OpenDNS fan too), bring both providers together into a dual WAN router and then configure the router to route all the DNS requests out through the one that isn't being an ass.

I didn't so much say not to try to solve people problems with technology as I said not to confuse or conflate a technical problem with a people problem. It's a small but important difference. You can always "solve" a people problem with technology through the simple expedient of using technology to eliminate "the people." There's been enough cases of deliberate genocide in the last thirty years to indicate it's becoming a popular option in some places.

I aware of the distinction, I was just having a bit of fun poking you with a stick. cheesy


I don't see "animal" instinct or cosmic levels of "evil" when I look at most of what is going on. What I do see is a lot of laziness, refusal to take responsibility, lack of civility, fear (as in angst), impatience, and sloppiness in our own behavior, and our behavior towards each other. I think we sometimes wish it were a "law of nature" that we be that way - because that would provide a convenient excuse for all sorts of bad behavior - and a justification for all sorts of pre-emptive and repressive responses on the part of those in power to prevent or mitigate them.

I'm not implying it is a copout/excuse for anything. I'm simply pointing out that the societal tendency as of late to sweep it under the carpet is destined to backfire.


So I don't think I'm glossing over bad behaviors or certain people's proclivity to indulge in them.

Didn't say you were ... But society is.


People do bad things. No argument from me on that point. But what I do disagree with is that any of this is beyond our personal ability to control when it comes to our own behavior. To say "it's human nature" means it can't be changed. And I don't see that. The human brain is like a piece of putty. People change their thinking all the time. And other people often change (or at least try to change it) for them.

...

So no...I don't think we're animals, or monsters, or rabid rabbits that need to be penned in and watched lest we all kill each other. I just think we get lazy, and tired, and impatient, and afraid - and we do counterproductive things to ourselves, and each other, as a result.

...And that result is a tendency to fall back to our baser instincts.


Here's the thing. You are equating "animal" with "Monster" ... Which has abso-freakin-loutly nothing to do with my usage of 'Animal'. Animals do not kill for sport, humans however do. And that is simply because of our delusion-ally arrogant assertion that we humans are somehow superior to these lessor beings ... So it's somehow ok. In the bad behavior department, humans are by far the stupidest parasitic infestation this planet has ever suffered.

Animals OTOH, have a much better understanding of the usage of a measured response when it comes to the fighting half of the fight of flight reflex. An animal will kill in defense of family, territory, or survival (e.g. food) and there is nothing wrong with that. As will we, except that in the interest of maintaining a thin veneer of civility we - or more specifically or leaders in power - will also concoct any manner of bullshit story to facilitate the necessity of pursuing things even farther for the purpose of more ... Not need...just more. An animal will break off the attack the instant the threat passes. Humans...OTOH...not so much.

Tomos actually nailed where I'm coming from with his assessment of society not scaling well. The larger a crowd of people becomes, the harder they are to keep on the same page. So more and more silly assed rules - like you can't walk your alligator in the town square - get enacted for the purpose of "maintaining order". And that's when the clic's start taking over the pecking order.

See you are trying to equate animal instinct with violence, I on the other hand am not. I'm speaking to the predatory nature that is so prevalent today in how power is badly wielded in all aspects of our sad joke of a civilized society. If you take a mans life in an alley, that's bad. But if you use a 900lb gorilla of a legal tiem to destroy a mans life with some bullshit trumped up patent trolling ... Well... *Shrug* ...That's just how the system works. Yet the predatory intent was the same. We just like to kid ourselves that we're - "Civilized"... - better than the other animals because we didn't leave a literal bloody carcass laying in the street after the fight.

How high are the bodies stacked due to some corporations desire to "protect" their shareholders? If the shareholders found out, would they  really care? ...You know...after the cameras were turned off.

In the AA they like to say that the first step is to admit that there is a problem. And we need to do that ... Instead of pretending that the predatory animal nature does not exist in the core of our being.

Man! What an ugly world some of you are living in. Sure glad I don't live there!  Grin

That's life in the big city, the law of the jungle, life on the streets, or just me being wordy and pragmatic at the same time. You yourself have said not to try solving a people problem with technology ... And that too agrees with the other. Because the problem lies with the wanton desire to circumvent the system...not the system itself. Sure it's human nature to be curious and explore the limits. I just think it's incredibly foolish to keep trying to gloss over and ignore the existence of the predatory aspects of human nature.

Kind of like C. S. Lewis' famous quote:
Quote from: C. S. Lewis
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. Their very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be ‘cured’ against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.

...Now why do you recon that keeps happening? Is/was it a flaw in the "system" ... Or maybe was it (human nature) just us?

No. It's not so much people suck as they get weird - and do weird things - around money.

I don't think that it's money.  I think it's the same thing that everything has been rooted to before money even existed as a concept- power.  All else is just an expression of this.  Power corrupts- and all of the expressions of it also.

+1

+2 - I gotta go with wraith on the power corrupts/people suck assessment also. Humans are the most savage animal on the planet, we also suffer the most self-righteous desire to inflict our will on our surroundings. So regardless of how sophisticated a machination may be orchestrated - rules and guidelines get woven into ropes - by those in the know (e.g. control).

Damn it Shades, now you got me started thinking about junkyard design options.

First of all, a domain would be your best bet. An old PC with a properly configured Untangle (or similar product) might do the trick as well.

This actually has potential, but I'll come back to that.

However, if macguyvering is your only option, you could think about the following concept and steps to take (fooling your users a bit).
Make a virtual LAN on your switch that is not allowed internet access. I do hope you have a DHCP server that "parks" every known and unknown computer/smartphone" in that virtual LAN. Then there should be a script available to anyone that should suggest it has to run to grant internet access. That script should then assign (hard-coded) IP numbers in a different subnet with internet access on a first come, first serve basis. With 20 or so users that shouldn't be too hard. This script should also disable HomeGroup (as 4wd has shown you) and whatever else you need/want.

Okay, bear with me as I play devil's advocate/hacker here. An isolated VLAN isn't going to stop devices from accessing a hot spot. The DHCP angle also goes up in smoke due to it only having the ability to control devices that ask it for an IP address. The problem child hotspot has DHCP capabilities too. Then there is the 20 users x how many devices x at least 2 NICs = how many MAC addresses needing to be tracked? *Shudder*

Here's the problem, even if you completely lock down all but one network adapter/path there still is one. And that one can be modified to do what ever someone wants it to (like connect to multiple networks) if they know how. Now the really horrific part is that if the don't know how and try to give it a go anyway ... And/or follow a "reasonably tech savvy" friends advice they could easily end up creating a vortex that sucks the entire network into the Chinese petting palace universe. This scenario -which I've seen play out many times - with local administrative rights is really the biggest danger IMO.

HomeGroup membership at this point actually becomes rather irrelevant when the thing you're really trying to block is the (technically completely unrelated because it is on a totally different layer of the OSI model) TCP/IP network connectivity to the internet.

But we're not totally screwed ... Yet!

Untangle is based on Linux and its web-interface makes management tasks quite easy.

Getting back to the gateway fortification method. If the users do actually need to be connected to the internal network to perform their jobs. We can leverage that in our favor with a wee bit of static routing based shenanigans.

Here's the thing. Have you ever encountered a Cisco VPC client install that was setup by a hyper paranoid asshole that blocked access to everything except the remote target network? It's both infuriating to troubleshoot...and - being ephemerally session based - exactly what we want. Because all you really need is a DHCP server that will toss in a few rather restrictive static routes, and nothing the users do or try will allow them to get to anything while they are on the company network because the IP routing table won't allow it. Sure they can connect to anything, within a first hop broadcast zone ... But any attempt to go past that will - via the routing table - auto-magically fail.

And ultimately that is really what is needed. An environment that will transparently allow them just enough room to realize that they have failed...so that they give up and go back to work.

This is for a gigging computer.

 undecided Working with only a vague grasp of WTH that is...I'm going to guess that it doesn't really need to be in a rack ... Yes?

For quiet cooling of a portable machine I would recommend the exceptionally well made and durable Antec 900. I originally bought one about 8 years ago primarily because of the 200mm fan in the top of the case. I'm more than a little bit hung-up on the heat rises bit...so that appealed to me. And it has been running whisper quiet 24/7/365 for the past 8 years. The PSU goes in the bottom of the case and blows its heat outward so it isn't sharing heat with the CPU like most cases that cram them both into the top corner where heat rises to and airflow sucks.

It is a (full sized case) bit heavy, but worth it I think considering all of the fans have 3 position speed controls so you can have a large volume of slow moving air keeping things cool and a bit cleaner to since dust isn't getting vacuumed from across the room and packed into the components by tiny overworked high speed fans that are doing their best to over inflate the cabinet. cheesy

Yes...but that's not the same thing. A burglar isn't going to be perceived as a threat to the cat (or the cat's "family"), unless the burglar steps on the cat's tail (or tries to swipe the kibble dish). But when a member of ones perceived inner circle is being eaten alive ... Well, that tends to elicit a bit more direct response.

She's very laid back and tolerant of the kid.  Makes it all the more amazing to see her run in and launch herself at the dog in the first video

No it doesn't. Animals are generally tolerant of those that they have bonded with. It's their way of acknowledging a family unit. Now if a member of that bonded family is threatened - since they don't suffer any of the idiotic societal notions we people have concocted - the response, quite predictably, is and will be sudden, hostile, and without warning ... As it should be.
