6/1     Heya Windows experts, I have a Windows 2000 box that I'd like
        all is't ports to be closed. I do not need it to be listening for
        any connections, and it's on an open WiFi network. Is there
        a way (whithout buying windows firewall software) to close
        all the ports on the Windows 2000 computer?
        \_ How about free firewall software like ZoneAlarm?  -John
           \_ Thanks, I didn't know that software was free.
              (Too bad Windows doesn't have an option to
                close all ports! ) --op
                \_ You'll get a good start on it by going through your
                   services (admin tools->services) and turning off
                   everything unnecessary.  On windows, the problem
                   is that a lot of different, potentially vulnerable
                   shit uses the rpc/dcom ports, so it's not the actual
                   udp/tcp ports themselves causing trouble.  -John
              \_ or try Kerio Personal Firewall 2.5.

3/25    It's strange that only every other Windows version is a hit.
        NT 4.0: hit
        2000:   flop
        XP:     hit
        Vista:  flop

2/19    I program a lot by sshing to a Linux cluster.  So I'm used to using
        Xemacs to code.  This works fine from a Linux or Windows workstation,
        but sometimes I have to use a Mac.  On Mac, the meta is usually
        bound to option, but that often doesn't work over ssh for some reason.
        This makes using emacs a real pain.  Any suggestions on how to fix it?

3/15    Why does MS put double-quotes around the '8' in Windows Server 8, like
        the following?
        - Windows 8
        - Windows Server "8"
        \_ Because when they didn't do it, code didn't see the '\0'
           and went over?  Looks better than '8','\0' *shrug*

12/21   In Emacs, how do I make it so that it will resize its screen
        when the maximum resolution of my monitor changes? When I
        use my laptop, my emacs is too big (and I can't resize it
        because the bottom-right corner is not accessible).
        \_ Which OS?  Can't you drag the top border (not a corner) to resize
           the height to be smaller?

        uptimes.
        \_ hardly, My winbox stays up longer.
        \_ Nobody cares about uptime anymore brother, that's what web2.0 has
           taught us.  Everything is "stateless".
