comment Can my older computer be connected to a newer 32" Sony Bravia LCD television?
An adapter is fine if it's just a connector issue. Converting VGA to composite video, hdmi or s-video requires a bit more. VGA to HDMI (or v.v.) needs almost a computer!

comment Best way to transfer huge files over internet?
Yes you can publish the links - only to files in your 'public' folder. But you can't flag a file in a shared folder as read-only.

comment Remote Desktop Gateway
Tried it out, it seems a little slower than remote desktop and you sometimes have to force a redraw. But it does support multiple screens on the destination machine very well

Isn't logmein just a wrapper around VNC - like copilot? Generally VNC hasn't been great over WAN links

comment Best way to transfer huge files over internet?
One small issue with dropbox on windows. Since it's in the "My Documents" windows thinks it's on the C drive and so any drag to somewhere else on the C drive moves rather than copies. I've had users delete files on shared dropbox when they thought they were making copies. There is no way to share read-only

comment Why are home networks prefixed with 192.168?
But why 192.168 ? It's not a special bit pattern or particularly memorable
