Know Your Network, Lesson 4: Access Your Home Computers from Anywhere
LH is often about how to get things done quickly, not how to do it securely. Sometimes there's a difference, but I agree, in this case running VNC outside any sort of tunnel is a BAD IDEA. Allowing unencrypted VNC access from the internet is a noob mistake. Gee Mom, look what I did! Setup a VPN at home first, then tunnen VNC traffic through your VPN. * OpenVPN for Linux Servers and Windows clients: [www.howtoforge.com] * OpenVPN: [www.grc.com] * VPN Uses: [blog.jdpfu.com] * Running Remote Applications: [blog.jdpfu.com] (NX is more efficient than VNC or RDP - perhaps 10x more efficient). ssh tunnels work, but they aren't as efficient as UDP-based VPNs like OpenVPN.

LED Lights Make Augmented Vision a Reality | Elemental LEDucation LED Lights Make Augmented Vision a Reality Okay, this is just freaky. We know LED lights are versatile enough to be used for practically anything, but LED contact lenses? Really?! Yes, as it turns out, really. University of Washington researchers have figured out how to implant semitransparent red and blue LED lights in contact lenses, for the purpose of receiving and displaying data in sharp visual images and video. Once miniature green LEDs are developed (and they’re in the works, as of now), full color displays will be possible. Lead researcher Babak Parvis comments “You won’t necessarily have to shift your focus to see the image generated by the contact lens,” it would just appear in front of you and your view of the real world will be completely unobstructed when the display is turned off. Ah, the real world. Thanks to Extreme Tech for the quote and Trendhunter for the images.

3 Hacks for Firefox That Will Double Your Internet Browsing Speed - Gnoted.com There are many people out there complaining about the Firefox RAM Memory Bug. Lets get it straight. It’s not a bug. It’s part of the cache feature. This ‘feature’ is how the pages are cached in a tabbed environment. To improve performance when navigating (studies show that 39% of all page navigations are renavigations to pages visited less than 10 pages ago, usually using the back button), Firefox implements a Back-Forward cache that retains the rendered document for the last five session history entries for each tab. This is a lot of data. Now a lot of us have found the ‘secrets’ on how to manipulate settings in “about:config” to drop the memory usage as long as possible and to increase the speed at which Firefox loads sites. Remember: Firefox (download it here) is the best internet browser available (in my opinion), and these tweaks below will make it even greater and faster. Reduce the amount of RAM Firefox uses for it’s cache feature Here’s how to do it: 1. 1. 2. 3. 1.

10 Reasons to Use Encrypted Packet Routing | There was a time, not too long ago, when encrypted routing might have been optional for most folks: nice-to-have, but not really crucial. After all, who really had to worry about their ‘net connection, once packets left their computer and headed into the proverbial “internet cloud.” Those times have changed. Encrypted routing protects your internet connection from the kinds of threats that aren’t found locally on your PC/laptop (or smartphone), and also adds a layer of protection between your computer and the outside, where entities tediously gather all the browsing and tracking data they can find, ultimately available to the highest bidder. To demonstrate exactly why this is the case, here’s the cold hard facts: Every time you connect to the internet, you run that connection through your Internet Service Provider. Unfortunately, as ISPs have grown bigger their loyalty has shifted away from you – the actual customer – to others. How? What happens next? Tags: vpn
