WinMx World News / IPV6 Usage Growing
« Last post by GhostShip on May 17, 2019, 04:41:28 pm »
Changes, changes  :)

Efforts to convert net users to a new addressing scheme have hit a key milestone.
The novel scheme is needed to help the net support more users and many more smart devices and gadgets.

Now more than 10% of net users are visiting websites using the new system, statistics suggest.
Called IPv6, the protocol replaces an the older version whose pool of addresses is almost depleted.

The figures were gathered by search giant Google, which monitors how people reach its services.

It seems in the UK we are way behind the rest of you folks but no doubt we will catch up  :yes:

In some countries the method you refer to is already being tried  :suspious:

For the rest of you to stay safe make sure you have one of these AFDB devices handy ..just in case  ;)

hear hear :D
lol try to find me the patch slowdown for pascal/cobol written and compiled programs, it would lookup and change wait routines that became to short on fast machines :) don't spend to much time, I could lay hands on the original code of the program and could change the routines where needed. the program named cyclop was used to monitor IBM mainframe batch flow.

I am broke 5 times over, took me couple of days to find a system that would boot my XP2 disk after the main board blew up a condensator.
it needed product registration and surprise, it still works for Microsoft XP
I skipped window 7,8 and 9 and bought a refurbished windows 10 from a trader in the family.
My luck to have long time microsoft experience so it is not to hard to find your way around but oh my what brains whip up all bells and whistles that need a 200 page manual to understand what it is supposed to do

Following the latest announcements its not just the Chinese looking abroad for hilarity, in Russia they wont be giggling with glee as their Govt will be looking to emulate the Chinese "censor everything" model, this also follows the passing of a new law that makes it an offence to insult the Govt, a penalty of 2 weeks imprisonment is waiting for those saying nasty things about their "leaders"

Most parts of WinMx use encryption but the file transfers however are the exception.

This legacy design decision allows an ISP using basic or even quite complex throttling equipment to look for a specific set of transfer messages, with these specific strings detected and on the default WinMx ports its pretty much certain when a file transfer is about to take place.

They can block file transfers on any port if they wish to but odds are they use the basic catch-many settings and let the few odds & sods port changers alone as this saves them a lot of extra work loading on the throttling equipment or software.

If your working ok on some off-the-bat ports then simply stick with them unless theres a problem again, its not common for ISPS to block stuff below 1043 so if theres a further issue drop down as low as you wish, above port 80 / 81 though of course  :)

A startup is claiming to have signed age verification contracts with a host of smut site operators – and is hoping 40 per cent of Britons will display their privates to it in July.

1Account, a business run by Ben Keirle and which was incorporated as One Account Mobile Ltd in August last year, claims to have inked deals with “over 60 companies” peddling pornography to Britons.

These, it claimed in a statement, included Xhamster, beeg, txxx and others with URLs that are too explicit for a, er, family-friendly website. According to 1Account, these pornographers represent “almost 40 per cent of the top 150 most visited domains as ranked by SimilarWeb for UK most Visited Adult Websites.“

only 150? google 'porn' and there are literally thousands..... this is going to be the most hilarious attempt at blocking porn ive ever seen.... china is going to be giggling with glee...

as you know I dont use a current O/s and theres a special end-of-line firefox for this build ESR.

i cant test this, and it may be far too late anyway, but i read that the ESRs aren't covered... you need the latest version...   ....and you need a current OS.. anything with a gig of ram and sse2 support will run a modern linux distro or windows 10... or 8.1 if you dont want 10... 7 dies in 2020.. and XP(POSReady version anyway) died just last month...
