    Musk to cut half of Twitter jobs and end remote work for the rest, report says

    Really venturing into genmay territory but .... I guess they shouldn't have started it then. Karma can be rough.

    Musk to cut half of Twitter jobs and end remote work for the rest, report says

    That would be true except for the fact we have it on record that both Twiiter and FB were doing the government's bidding when it came to suppressing some topics vs others.

    Musk to cut half of Twitter jobs and end remote work for the rest, report says

    Reading is only part of it. How many of these pro Ukraine Americans have been to Crimea or Donetsk? How many have even spoken to someone from there? Very simply Americans need to travel more. People here tend to think interstate movement is traveling. It is not. We as a country need to go to...

    External LTE/5G Antenna

    They don't offer anything beyond what it comes with and have no official position or suggestions on 3rd party external antenna. My SE team is unofficially looking to see if what any other customers may be using.

    Gaming overseas with a VPN

    The vpn overhead and extra hops actually added a cpl ms vs direct. In my case the games were hosted on the same ISP and city as home. There was no cloud hosting involved. Locally the ping times are typically less than 3ms between us.

    External LTE/5G Antenna

    I've got an LTE/5G bridge device for a tertiary internet connection. On going remodeling work has forced me to relocate it from its longtime home. It will not be able to return. The problem with new home is poor signal. I have seen several type of external antenna options but honestly have no...

    free portable network scanner for bot / malware / virus ?

    Since lics were expired I'm going out on a limb and guessing no FAZ or other logging platform and no siem either? So basically no logs beyond the rolling log of the FGT. OUCH! While your getting the lics renewed have mgmt drop for FAZ. I know there is a free 3 device FMG lic for the vm version...

    Testing 25 gbps to 100 gbps networks

    FMD! Reading this thread makes me so happy I no longer do performance testing of multi vendor firewalls.

    free portable network scanner for bot / malware / virus ?

    What kind of firewall? Have you reviewed the logs looking for indicators?

    free portable network scanner for bot / malware / virus ?

    It is very likely they have a firewall of some capacity. It will be missing capabilities such as updated attack signatures and such. Very few enterrpise firewalls these days stop being a basic firewall when lics expire. Those I am aware of that do also fail closed ie stop forwarding packets...

    free portable network scanner for bot / malware / virus ?

    It is highly unlikely you will find anything free to scan a network. The best you'll be able to do for free will be individual workstation scanning. If you've a proper relationship with your firewall vendor you could perhaps convince them to provide some "eval" tools. Otherwise start combing...

    Gaming overseas with a VPN

    I can tell you from personal experience FPS games hosted on US servers will be less than satisfying when played from Asia. Other game type will likely work better but be prepared to experiment to find ones that work well for you and your friends. I tunnel all traffic back to home when traveling...

    Service that works even in coffee shops that block VPNs ?

    Banking on a mobile device is already bad enough. A mobile device on a public network?? Remember, you're one bad cert away from being owned and a vpn will not help that. FWIW I bank from a dedicated device that only does such things. Years ago I had a coworker that would be in a coffee shop...

    Service that works even in coffee shops that block VPNs ?

    Since the stated goal is to not be blocked it would be best not use dtls which is basically tls over udp. TLS running over tcp 443 would be best option for success.
