Those were some pretty softball questions, followed up by rabid Trump supporters spouting all sorts of nonsense. Yikes.

Because the initials STD have no negative stigma whatsoever.

At long, long last, Star Trek is making its way back to TV, and today we're getting a first look. Alongside this afternoon's Star Trek panel at Comic-Con, CBS put out a teaser showing the new...

New #VerizonFIOS router: I can only set the SSID via the "Basic Security Settings," whose only security schemes are "WEP" (practically worthless) and "Off" (open network, no security).

"... we recommend that you establish stronger security using the Advanced Security Settings. To establish stronger security, select 'OFF' in Step 4, click on APPLY and then go to Advanced Security Settings to setup security."

In other words: Before establishing strong security, turn all security off. #UmNo

This is not atypical. My usual workaround with such equipment is to disconnect the broadband connection entirely first and then disable the radios, then configure, then clean up any remaining items and check them over before reattaching the broadband and reenabling radios in a strong cipher mode.

I got an e-mail message from #VerizonFios: "Our records indicate that you have an older model router that is being discontinued." The suggested alternatives are to pay $2.80/month to support your old junk, or to buy "a certified, pre-owned Fios Advanced Wi-Fi Router [for] $59.99 (plus taxes)."

Here's a better alternative. Call Verizon at +1 (800) 837-4966 and ask to be upgraded to an Actiontec Rev I router for free. ("Rev I" is letter "i" not digit 1.)

Please let me know (or share this post) if this helps; hope it does.

I walked slower -- but longer and further -- than I probably would have otherwise.

If you're a true geek and go with the hacking method, I think the real hex patch is 4039 C00F -> 403B C60F (5039 C00F -> 503B C60F or 6839 C00F -> 683B C60F or 39C0 0F4C -> 3BC7 0F4C) rather than 7D04 8365 -> EB04 8365 as described in the article.

Microsoft's Windows 10 has proven to be a solid release by Microsoft, with faster adoption rates than its predecessor builds. The seamless integration of cloud services and tweaks both major and minor make using Windows easier than ever now. And it's almost enough to forget you ever used Windows Vista... almost. However, one thing that was a HUGE let down was the way Microsoft dealt with two mainstays of their platform—Solitaire and Minesweeper. ...

The old Bell Labs building in Holmdel is slowly coming back to life. (Which is awesome.)

If you haven't yet upgraded your PC to Windows 10, today would be an excellent day to backup your computer to an external hard drive. You want to create a "system image," which contains all the information on your PC. Here's how to make one (and how to use it to restore your computer back to its current state, should you ever need to).

http://www.pcworld.com/article/2880652/restore-a-windows-8-or-windows-7-image-backup-to-an-unbootable-pc.html
An image backup can restore a hopelessly messed up Windows installation. But how do you restore a backup when you can't boot Windows?

If you don't have an external hard drive, today would a truly excellent day to buy one. Here are some from Best Buy.

1TB should be plenty big enough, 2TB is a little bit better, more is overkill for almost everyone.

This campaign's two-step dance:

(reports that something happened)

(1) It absolutely, categorically never happened.

(proof that it happened)

(2) Look how terrible Hillary Clinton is!

"Linux Mint has the somewhat peculiar design decision of not updating the kernel using the graphical update manager. Users must run apt-get dist-upgrade in a terminal in order to receive updates, when users of Ubuntu receive the same kernel updates automatically.... security patches and updates that work perfectly in Debian and Ubuntu are blacklisted as needed to not break under Mint ..."

Are the author's concerns overstated or legitimate?

http://www.techrepublic.com/article/why-the-linux-mint-hack-is-an-indicator-of-a-larger-problem/
Security vulnerabilities at the Linux Mint project highlight substantial issues with the popular Linux distribution, and the difficulty of maintaining a Linux distribution as a hobbyist project.

Bad news: Microsoft accounts have privacy issues. Good news: You don't need one to use Windows 10. (You can use a local account instead.) Bad news: You need one to use Microsoft's Store for Windows 10 apps. Good news: You can still use a local account for Windows 10 on your machine.

"When you get the following dialog, PLEASE don’t enter your Windows password. Instead Sign in to just this app instead option if you want to install apps from the Store without migrating your local user account to Microsoft."

Sound legit?

Watching Endeavor (young Inspector Morse) last night, I couldn't believe they mentioned Sgt. Vimes of Cable Street.

I guess the BBC writing staff has some fans of Sir +Terry Pratchett.

My favorite liquor store, with an exceptionally large beer selection. Tip: If you get there by driving west on Rt. 520 / Newman Springs Rd., take the second or third entrance into the parking lot. The first "entrance" is exit-only.

Good food (If you like Wendy's menu), friendly staff, prompt service. Tip: If you don't like turning left into the parking lot from Shrewsbury Ave northbound, turn left just south of Wendy's onto North Gilbert Street (just after World Subaru, before Two Rivers Community Bank), make the first right, bear straight through the parking lot, turn right (onto Hartford Dr), right again (onto Executive Drive), and finally right again onto Shrewsbury Ave southbound. Wendy's will be on your immediate right. (You can't get in there by the side.)

Very good pizza, great pizza bread (a lot like what other places call garlic knots), friendly service.

Some people prefer Bagelmasters in Shrewsbury, but I don't. I go to Grandma's for bagels, hard rolls, and Jersey sandwiches (egg, cheese, and Taylor Ham a.k.a. pork roll, preferably on a hard roll). Best for early-morning food. I've sometimes arrived too late to get a hard roll or my choice of bagels.
