Intel vs. AMD

Intel vs. AMD

As a computer person, I get asked regulardly for my opinion on Intel versus AMD for gaming. I really don’t keep up with these things, so I took a random poll from a sampling of people living in my house (other than me). Here are my results.

Comcast IPV6

Comcast IPV6

Jeff Forman put up a blog post on his website detailing how he got the Comcast IPV6 working through the trial. His setup explains exactly how to do this if you’re trying to get it to work on a Linux box, but not how to do this on your router and put it through your entire network.

It was easy for me because I just swapped my he settings for the comcast ones that Jeff (and whfsdude) provided. It may not work for you, but good...

Trillian Astra 4.0 Released!...
