That is why you put it on a VM behind a QoS router. so you can manage both bandwidth and CPU.

Besides, you never run that sort of thing on your desktop... Bad idea.

Also, I have been trying Yacy. I want to like it, but it sucks. It is a distributed search engine. The idea is awesome, but it rapes the CPU, gets frozen when you least expect it, and sucks for privacy because it does all the crawling from your computer. So, if you search for gnome cartoon gay porn, chances are it will start fetching pages related to the subject to index them, and everybody in the world will know you like gay gnomes.

Meant to include a screenshot. and a 2nd statement :  "or you just limit the bandwidth at the vm level"

A true, traditional search engine with spiders and crawlers, under


Apache license. Surprisingly complete and bullshit free.

This of course leads to the obvious next step: a decentralized search

engine?



Gigablast's engine comes with clustering capabilities and a load balancer proxy.

If you want a truly distributed search engine, there is Yacy, but it sucks, as mentioned above.

One of several overly self-important "we were supposed to own the world" know-it-alls who made a few bucks working at Netscape before they were commoditized out of existence.

I've been getting a lot of calls from "solar" companies lately. Disturbingly, they know my name, address, and cell phone number. I have to assume this means that anyone who can be licensed as an ESCO has access to the electric company's customer list or something.

Today I got a call from someone who addressed me by name and said they were doing a lot of solar conversions in ${TOWN}. I said "So they're doing a lot here in ${TOWN}?" and he said yes, they've got a lot going on here.

"Ok then, name two towns which border ${TOWN} and I'll believe you."

"Uh ... why would I ..."

"Yeah, I didn't think so." <click>

I have been getting many calls on my cell phone about my auto warranty.  While some calls come from a different area code, most of the calls come from my cell phone's area code.  The local area code, where I purchased my car, and my cell phone's area code are different.  

Luckily Verizon, or Pixel has already flagged them as spam and the phone does not ring. Unfortunately I do get a voice mail.

ya i get all sorts of stuff like that with a spoofed local area code. Last fall one week on my land line, every afternoon we would get calls ( i think it was the classic 'this is apple support' , but could have been Microsoft.  ) every 10 minutes for 4 hours. Different spoofed number each time.  All went to voice mail. My vm is on the phone. not a carrier vm, so I just about turned the phone off. It was nuts and not a damned thing we could to stop it.

I just turned on that thing with google for my cell phone where they have to announce themselves first.  Seems to have actually increased crap voicemails, strangely enough.

I guess technically not 'land', its VoIP.

If you have VoIP or any phone service that supports "simultaneous ringing" to another number, you can use nomorobo.com to hang up on most robocallers after the first ring. I have it on my home phone and it's great.

For most spam callers, you can pretty much assume that the calling number is falsified. If no calling party identification is supplied to the network you get something like "V00120389473723". If they bother to put something in at all, they'll usually use the same NPA-NXX as the called number, to try to fool you into thinking the call is
"local".

The NPA-NXX of my mobile number originated in a town where I neither know nor do business with anyone who lives there. If I see those digits I know for sure I don't have to bother answering unless I feel like harassing some madarchod who wants to sell me a bunch of solar panels or a car warranty.

I use Vonage for the home phone.  That has a limited call blocking feature.  The biggest caller to that number seems to be the RNC, and they use multiple numbers.  Some get marked "SPAM - RNC" and some say "RNC", all from area code 202.

My cell phone is the number that gets the auto warranty calls.  The calls to my cell phone usually go straight to voice mail, but I still get a voice mail.

I get the RNC calls too, including ones where the Caller ID says "SPAM? RNC".
I made the mistake of using my real contact information (phone + email) when I donated to the Trump campaign, and now every republican who wants money comes to me with their hand out.

Vonage is totally compatible with Nomorobo. Sign up for it, it's free and you'll love it.

Can't figure out quite the right room for this question, so Bottom Feeders will have to do.

Does the NY REAL-ID compliant drivers license have an RFID chip? I know that the EDL does, but I can't find a straight answer one way or the other regarding REAL ID. I know that some states' REAL ID does have RFID (California, of course) but it seems that it's not a federal requirement?

I am sure it must.  Do you know if the IDs have a bar code on the back?  At Centrex Labs you check in by putting your ID in a tray with a reader.  It might have an RFID reader as well. 

Citizens were supposed to update their motor vehicle operators license before August 2020, I was at the DMV in April of last year, the line was long, it wasn't moving, I left.  I still have to get a new ID.

Yes, it's mandated by the REAL-ID act. That's why the airports now require *either* a passport or REAL-ID. With the RFID chip they both do the same thing.

I'm just not sure that's accurate. See the infinite-monkeys-encyclopedia page at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_ID_Act#cite_note-29 and citation 29,

Although the use of wireless RFID chips was offered for consideration in the proposed rule making process, it was not included in the latest rule making process

Cite 29 just refers to a barcode requirement.

Most of the articles on this subject appear to be very lightly sourced.

My wife has one so I asked her. It apparently does have the chip, because it comes with an RF-shielded sleeve to prevent unwanted reads, just like the EDL.
