comment How is encryption handled when different email clients send emails securely?
In my specific case, my pubkey is on keyserver.ubuntu.com and has a gmail address listed on it. There's nothing that says you have to store the key on the mailserver.

comment How do I disable the iSight camera on Mac OS 10.6?
Aside: and this is why I love my XO-1. The camera and microphone LEDs are hard-wired to light when the camera/mic are sampling. And since they are tested on boot, I'd know if someone disconnected them. :)

Can you be sure that the software you remove isn't reinstalled through an update? If you're paranoid enough to ask about how to disable the camera for all applications, making the camera return meaningless input is just about as good.

comment Does this router contain a modem?
My cable provider charges $5 USD/month 'rental fee' for a modem. That means buying my own is cheaper if the modem lasts 15 months. At any rate, this is a DSL question, not a cablemodem question...so...

comment Does this router contain a modem?
My cable company provides 'dumb' ones if you don't get their VOIP package - but I always buy my own modems.

In contrast, most cablemodems available for sale in my area are integrated modem/routers...which means it's a pain to get custom f/w on 'em.

comment How to get the real IP address of someone using a proxy?
My guess? They probably ask the host system for their IP or possibly ping the system on its connection. Not very useful when the "real IP" reported is 192.168.1.201 or something.

comment Ubuntu 10.10 network card detection problem
Race condition: two things are trying to affect the system at the same time, and it's a race to see which one wins. One of the common symptoms is that the problem is intermittent.
