  1. I have a mixture, of old, and new, CAT-5e Ethernet-Patch-Cables, with various demarcations on the cables, regarding EIA/TIA-568"A","B",&"C"-types . I'm trying to standardize . I've visited technical articles, online, but cannot decipher them . Can I ALWAYS use, the "C", variety ?
  2. How does "DuckDuckGo", make money, and continue to exist, if I am not "tracked", when using their search-engine ?
  3. If my new credit-cards, are RFID-near-field-capable, why do the gold-contacts, make contact, with the reader ?
  4. The "AI Saves Eyesight" Kim's podcast, gets a "404-error" on iTunes !
  5. I've been recently getting requests, for connection to TCP Port #554 (decimal ; outgoing) -- what does it do ???
  6. Has Amazon Prime, ever gone on sale, on "Prime Day" ?

    Has Amazon Prime, ever gone on sale, on "Prime Day" ?

    ???
  8. Haven't certain "backdoor"s, been linked to the inbound (to our computers), manifestations, of these ports ? ( And, what port, is SSHFS, on ? ) .
  9. What is the deal, with PC-compatibility, the netbios daemon, the samba technology, and (outbound [?]) port #s 137,138,139 & #445 ?   All I know, is that these ports were open on TCP & UDP (I think, outbound to my local network), until I blocked-them with the Mac third-party application called "Little Snitch" .    
  10. I have "Keynote", "Pages", & "Numbers", apps, on my Mac -- are these, a direct substitute, for "Microsoft Office" ?
  11. Thank you . Actually, I shouldn't have mentioned "Meltdown"-flaws, since, supposedly, THAT is now "patch-able", but a portion of the "Spectre"-flaws, is only correctable, in hardware . Please keep me posted, when hardware is available, that fixes this, as I will be in the market, to buy the fix !
  12. Are the new Intel "i9"-series of CPUs, to be affected, by the Meltdown & Spectre, flaws ?
