MAC filters only attempts to control access to your network however without encryption someone can still listen in to network traffic. Anything is better than nothing. Wireless security will always lag behind wired security. I use 128bit WEP, I found it was easier to put a 40 Hex character string in...

A new PS may appear to fix the problem but the caps are an issue and may lead to a early death on your new PS. If you still want those caps replaced I can do it for you.

Part true part not. The Anandtech article shows there is more to the Pentium M's gain than just seti. Cache does help because yes my Xeon 450 w/1M out pace my PIII 600s w/512k, 750s w/256k and 850s w/256k. My Alpha EV6 500 w/4M can out my pace PIII 933 w/256k and comes within a few minutes of my Cel...

The main reason I need USB in Linux is for my KVM and printers. Having Mixed luck with the Thunder, got to dig up a better CDROM the one I was testing with last night couldn't read my Linux CDs very well.

Thx Hal

Oh well probably best for me, really didn't need anymore systems around the house. ;)

Did you use Linux on that board? Wondering how good Linux does with the SW USB controller since I picked up a Thunder 2500 eariler.

why does it say "Last updated on Thu Oct 2 09:49:03 2003 CST (367 hr 40 min 21 sec ago; stale - Can't find first rank)" ?

I look at them weekly, I use my SetiQueue server for Day to Day stats.
