OK as I have very little time on our god (the internet) I'm creating my own forums but it's a real pain due to the little time I have online

 

Is there anyway to do such things without being connected to the net? I've noticed there is a "work offline" thing so if that's got anything to do with it please explain

I just got a notification on my PC which said more or less that another computer is connected on the same network and it shares the same IP address as mine, and it also said to contact my Internet provider for more details.

Should I be worried? Do I have to do something?

Long story short, I had to get my insured Galaxy S3 replaced.  I disassembled the phones to perform a motherboard swap so I could restore several hours worth of personal settings.  Problem is, the IMEI #s are swapped now as well.  Will the insurance company care when I send a phone back with a IMEI not matching the motherboard?  Or do I need to swap the stickers with the IMEI #'s  as well so they don't know :ph34r: ?

I think they will mostly care about it having been disassembled... There are usually screws in there specifically designed to tell if anyone messed with them. But if they somehow miss that, no, I don't think the change of IMEI is going to matter. By all rights they should re-assign it if they are going to use the board in a refurbished phone.

Unless you are directly connected to WAN, which you really should never ever do, it's your LAN IP and has nothing to do with your ISP. Odds are, you have a Wi-Fi router and another machine is connected through it. Check your security settings on the router, etc.

Thanks.  

 

I hope they don't charge me.  It be nonsensical given that I sent them the brand new motherboard on the old phone that they will most certainly try to resell.

Yeah, I used to get the same notification too. My computer is connected to the router via Ethernet cable, and my sister used the Wi-Fi connection and this notification would frequently pop up. If you use a cable connection you should turn off Wi-Fi just in case (someone might have figured out your password and is using your router), or change its password.

Exactly what _____ said. Some has probably hacked into your Wi-Fi password or you haven't set a password. It'd usually be your neighbours so you don't really need to worry about it.

Can my Internet provider track the sites I'm navigating? And is there a possibility to stop being tracked?

It really depends on your ISP, but I believe that most providers keep logs. I'd think this is more to do with illegal software being downloaded or illegal websites/searches being made. I read somewhere that providers usually keep logs for 12-18 months.

 

There's various software that'll allow you to surf the web anonymously. You can have a look on Google and what not to find these kind of services.

Anyone know where/how to get Penitentiary Gothic font (used in license plates) for free?

 

I'm not gonna pay $12 for a font that I will probably use once.

US license plates I presume? I'd say that if that particular font is licensed in one place, it's going to be licensed everywhere. In the past I've just googled "US license plate font" and gotten a look-alike like this one or this one, which looks even better. You can hardly tell the difference between them and the real thing.

I'm probably reading into this too much, but why would someone post as themselves on a status of a Facebook page they administer? By " post as themselves" I mean post using their own account as opposed to posting as the page. I'm pretty sure Facebook automatically posts as the page if you comment on your page's statuses.

 

Yeah, I just checked it out and it seems you can only post as the page. It's probably an error.

Probably something ego-related. I heard of some people who have armies of multiple accounts on youtube that're used to defend/support/subscribe the puppet master.

 

Why do porn sites have an "are you over 18"? button clicker thing? I can only imagine it's for legal reasons, but it seems pretty stupid. Even an idiot like me can get around that.

Find out who the Publisher of his work(s) is. Write to them. Celebrity's can't have easy contact with 'Fans' for reason of literary liability.

www.imdb.com 'Pro' alleges to have contact information, if you pay for it.

Want a quick answer. Any chance that pizzas may contain toxic mushrooms? I am always anxious when I eat pizza, if the question creeped you out a bit.

Most Pizza restaurants get them from the tin, so the likelihood of 'dangerous' mushrooms is almost nil.

Okay, thanks for the quick replies, just to clarify the situation. I'm anxious and eventually I ended up reading about dangerous mushrooms on Google. Given the fact that most pizzas contain mushrooms, I started thinking what if the pizza that I ate earlier might have toxic mushrooms. And I've triggered panic attacks.

If you ever do find a pizza place that uses magic mushrooms, be sure to let me know.

Given that mushrooms eaten or prepared for commercial foodstuffs are almost solely farmed, there's no chance of any of them being dangerous unless you think that mushroom farmers are intentionally poisoning people. Which is just silly.

They can and they do, at least indirectly. Page request contains the address of the page you want and is sent as plain text readable by anyone between your computer and the server. That naturally includes your ISP, but also a bunch of other organizations.

Browsing a web site completely anonymously is tricky business. There are many programs that promise anonymity, but none of them are completely reliable. You really need to know how the tracking is done and by whom. Hiding things just from your ISP is easy. All you have to do is go through a remote, anonymous, encrypted proxy server. That guarantees that your ISP doesn't know what you are browsing, but if you are trying to hide it from anyone besides ISP, it's not enough.

Honestly, the best advice is that if you aren't OK with your ISP knowing some of the sites you visit, don't visit them.
