Uk.businessinsider. “Only the paranoid survive.” — Andy Grove Andy Grove was a Hungarian refugee who escaped communism, studied engineering, and ultimately led the personal computer revolution as the CEO of Intel.

And Grove isn’t the only powerful person urging caution.

Well, law-abiding citizens do have reason to fear. “If one would give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest man, I would find something in them to have him hanged.” — Cardinal Richelieu in 1641.

It's a standard protocol which sends signals across the electrical system.

Many X10 devices are Made-in-China components which can be bought for dirt cheap on eBay. So, I drew it out and went X10 shopping on eBay: 4 x motion detectors (MS16A) = $253 x light switch modules (WS12A) = $302 x remote keyfobs (KR19A) = $10RF transceiver module (TM571) = $8Lamp module, chime module = $15Serial 2-way computer interface (CM11A) = $40 Now, here comes the magic. Then I discovered this great little item: The SheevaPlug, $99. The software I loaded on the SheevaPlug allows for advanced features ADT doesn't offer.

How to easily delete your online accounts. List of TCP and UDP port numbers.

This is a list of Internet socket port numbers used by protocols of the transport layer of the Internet Protocol Suite for the establishment of host-to-host connectivity.

List of TCP and UDP port numbers

Originally, port numbers were used by the Network Control Program (NCP) in the ARPANET for which two ports were required for half-duplex transmission. Later, the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) needed only one port for full-duplex, bidirectional traffic. The even-numbered ports were not used, and this resulted in some even numbers in the well-known port number range being unassigned.

The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) and the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) also use port numbers. They usually use port numbers that match the services of the corresponding TCP or UDP implementation, if they exist.
