  • Can I install this on my Carputer?

    www.thehackstop.com ... i just saw the infomercial for this.....i was waiting for the geico gecko to popup. They even used the term "harddrive scam". I have to beg the question.....what about wireless?

          absolutely nothing. I think a better alternative would be....hook up your cable modem or router to an outlet controlled by a light swtich.

                Oh my god. that is @#$%ing brilliant! Its ideas like this that make me want to smack my forehead with large blunt objects... A completely useless "device" that does nothing special, marketed to the right demographic. Someone is sleeping very well tonight.

                  Here's a task that's even less demanding than turning a light switch off, with the same end-result:
                  Move the cursor over to the Task Bar, right-click on your Internet Connection icon, choose Disable.
                  There's much less muscles involved in that situation.

                      Not yet, so far I'm just Jewish.

                      Meaning that...
                      I'd rather move my mouse cursor around than pay 20 dollars.

                        holy crap....you just gave me a million dollar idea.

                        I will write the most simple SAPI program ever.....and market it. You simply install the cd....then whenever you say "turn off the internet".....it will disable the network connection....and "turn on the internet" will re-enable it. It's the lazy man's hackstop.

                          Why not write a simple "internet on" "internet off" program that floats on the dekstop. Even time base it so it will auto shutoff when you dont want your kids to use. Maybe a password protect option dont let your IT guy at work know. He might setup the program on your work pc so you can't browse the internet during work hours. Not that anyone browses the internet at work

                              Better yet, turn the power-saving on your network adapter so that it will power off the NIC after a period of time.
                              Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                              How about the Wiki?
