A related link with the text of the waiver...

Why does the CARS system consider your computer property of the United States Government?

Question for the left: You all had a cow about FISA. Why no cows now...?

Sighing...All the interesting persons on the left and far beyond the left who screamed everytime some program went in to monitor/target terrorists and they screamed, “Invasion of privacy.” Yet when the healthcare bill came out for all to read and when the Obama administration said all medical records will be in one national database because....(fill in the blanks) ... not one peep from the left. Well, so much to say, but I’m a lady, so I’ll leave it at that.

Not to mention the ACLU would be all over the behind of any Pubbie pulling this kinda (bleep). And in this case, rightfully so.

Paging the ACLU....

The NX bit is hardware in the CPU. It is enabled to work with the OS. The only OS I know so far that definitely supports it is the Windows 7 64bit and Linux 64 bit. MS has grumbled about other OS support.

It is chip dependent, You need to check the Intel site for your chip and see if it has the hardware. Less than 50% of Intel chips has it right now. AMD 64 chips are far better with their support.

What this combination does is prevent the classic ‘buffer overflow exploit’, which is what enables about 98% of all virulent attacks. Script kiddies need to go on unemployment.

This technology is over 20 years old, most real computers have separated executable code from data using the mmu but Intel x86 has not. NX bit essentially marks the memory page code or data, and prevents execution of data pages.

To change the computer from admin, you probably need to make another user, make that the admin and then convert your user from admin to a normal user.

You use the control panel in Windows, groups association on Linux. It’s in the windows control panel users panel.

This should be done immediately as it exposes your operating system to compromise which can really screw up your system.

Create another user, of type admin, then convert your user to normal. That way you have an admin account to use for the system administration.

This is just the warm up. . . . the birth pangs.

The real dramas are looming on the near horizon.

On the same page with you my friend. Lots O’ water under the bridge and lived through everything you mentioned. We Have a wonderful family. Strong, healthy and like all the rest of our family...they are proud to be Americans. We dont’ really scare...we just get mad. :)

I think the country has finally awakened. That ole sleeping giant as they say. It’s terrible it has to take this long before people begin to realize what they thought they wanted they didn’t. Thank God we knew what we wanted and what we DIDN’T want and now can take comfort in the fact we didn’t contribute to this administration.

Press on and God speed!!!

I kept asking myself why the mention of foreign agencies...and the only thing I could think is that the admin might use foreign agencies to get around FOIA requests.

I don’t know about ‘just by being on the internet’ but people’s files get updated all the time by automatic downloads and service packs, who the hell knows what those changes are...

Yes, you're so right.
