  1. Past hour
  2. You still can. If it's in the actual start menu, there is a ProgramData folder containing all those shortcuts. If you're talking about the quick launch bar, you can still right click on the icon to get to the properties.
  3. Not in Cisco. By default, a Cisco 1920 router, which has a 1st gen firewall built in to it in the form of ACLs, will pass all packets, including ICMPs by default. You have to configure the device to with ACEs to tell it what traffic to permit or not permit. The standard ICMP block wasn't until late in the game of 2nd gen firewalls when the ASA became the de-facto.
  4. Not true. The need for routing is determined by subnets. While the router or firewall does know about the networks connected directly to it, if the logical networks are different (i.e. - the subnets are different) the device does not forward the traffic between them UNLESS you tell the device to do that. In traditional L3 devices, that means a route has to be established either via a static route or one of the routing protocols (RIP/RIPv2/RIPng, OSPF, EIGRP). In an NGFW, the security policy does the routing. And in 1st and 2nd gen firewalls, they are really just packet filters; so, they don't do any forwarding whatsoever. The 1st gens just looked at source, destination, and port, and it did what the first ACE that matched the traffic told it to do, either permit or deny, in a top down search. If it didn't find a match, the packet was dropped by default. 2nd gens did the same thing as well as look at the state of the packet (established or not), and was able to make decisions on whether to drop or permit based on that. In both cases, if the packet was permitted, it still needed a separate device to route.
  5. That is not anything new to NGFWs - that is just standard firewall from the days of the first packet filters..
  6. I know I'm a bit late to the party, but I just stumbled on to this thread with a similar issue. I actually found the answer you were looking for as I was reading through this thread. (I'm a Cisco guy moving in to the FortiGate world.) FortiGates and FortiLink handle the VLAN communication differently than most other devices. The FortiGate views each VLAN as a separate interface, an SVI basically; so, in that regard it's not different than other networking equipment. But, the FortiGate is an NGFW; so, it's not *just* a firewall or *just* a router or *just* a web filter etc. It's all those in one device. And by default, ICMP packets are not passed between interfaces in an NGFW without some intervening technology for security reasons, at least that's the way the FortiGate works. For FortiGates, that intervening tech is called a Zone. If you create a Zone and add all the VLANs to it, the Zone then becomes the interface. I'm currently working in a test bed to see what the limitations of Zones are and how I can use them. Otherwise, I'd give you more info on how they work and what their limitations are. Here's the recipe from the FortiNet Cookbook: https://cookbook.fortinet.com/using-zones-to-simplify-firewall-policies-56/
  7. No one is forcing conservatives or liberals to use those service. You dont like it dont use it. And when you sign up for THEIR services you agree to THEIR terms. You dont like it then dont use it. For some reason IT people tend to be excessively liberal. The same people that are pro post-term abortion (infanticide) are also those against the death penalty. Men can be women and vice versa, they have no real platform or common sense but they do have militant fake outrage and discrimination. I suppose its more christian to wait until after the child is born, then rip that infant child from another Christian's arms and leave them in a kennel. Here is the thing, you need to take a look at how you conflate party with right and wrong. It will bite you one day.
  8. It is 4 GB - same configuration as the GTX 1050 Ti (which is why it can directly replace it); however, unlike the GTX 1050 Ti, it lacks that 6-pin PCI-E plug in most configurations. The other reason it can directly replace it is due to the raytracing support in games (such as Anno 1800) without surrendering the excellent DX12 support that Pascal is known for (Anno 2205, Ashes of the Singularity and Siege of Centauri). lol @ thinking you'd be able to use raytracing features with this card when even 1080's have trouble with that. Raytracing and this card are not compatible in any way what so ever. Sure you can do it but you can also punch yourself in the balls repeatedly. Both would provide about the same amount of fun.
  9. Probably not a huge one but it comes down to what you're trying to do with it.
  10. You can have command arguments. Right click on the square (or shortcut) > More > Open file location and edit the shortcut by adding your command line. If you're locked down by admin ... you might be able to create a shortcut on the desktop, add your command arguments and pin the shortcut to the start menu (and then delete the shortcut off the desktop) With respect to the Chrome dark mode ... it just worked on all my computers without needing any arguments. I like it. :)
  11. Today
  12. who says everyone wants to game a Max 4K 60fps? I currently have a 750 Ti and it's treated me great over the years; this will be a good upgrade for me once the Ti Low-Profile variation is available. It should still be able to run most games and near High settings. I run my gaming rig on my 720p TV so a higher resolution than that means nothing to me personally Ya, I have a similar graphics card that I use on my 70 inch 1080p TV.

  14. Apple's profits have been declining for a couple Quarters now. Plus they don't innovate very much anymore, is what i was getting at. https://www.zacks.com/stock/ne...arnings-expected-to-decline Let's wait for the YoY.

    If we can get a triple-fold device, we can have the screen size of a tablet, and the portability of a phone Yes, something like the tablets in 'Westworld'
  16. It's a shame it's not available in chrome://flags/ as, at work, I launch Chrome pinned to Windows 10's Start menu (where you can't add command lines).
  17. It is 4 GB - same configuration as the GTX 1050 Ti (which is why it can directly replace it); however, unlike the GTX 1050 Ti, it lacks that 6-pin PCI-E plug in most configurations. The other reason it can directly replace it is due to the raytracing support in games (such as Anno 1800) without surrendering the excellent DX12 support that Pascal is known for (Anno 2205, Ashes of the Singularity and Siege of Centauri). I think I'll wait it out and see what AMD has to offer with Navi in a few months as I think getting any gpu now should have at least 8GB of gpu memory thanks to what the next gen of consoles are looking likely to have, anything less then that could cause real problems a year or so from now.
  18. For now but like all tech, it likely will get better, beside, I suspect some drones already can. I think you just have to accept that drones are not going away and that they are likely going to take over more deliver services as they get better. Only in US More like worldwide or at least to western countries as no country lives in a bubble anymore and where one goes, others likely follow thanks to globalistion and that goes both ways. In truth, if it offers a better service and for less, it will likely take off and it likely will.
  19. Both options worked for me. Not sure what's the difference with the second flag. --force-dark-mode = as I understand it, forces Chrome into and remain in dark mode. --enable-features=WebUIDarkMode = as I understand it, allows Windows 10 themes to control Chrome's automatic switch from light to dark, as you change your Win 10 themes. Not necessarily true, I've used '--force-dark-mode' and Windows is able to control it.
  20. Do you mean Linuxers? anyone who thinks Microsoft needs to change to suit their own stuck-in-the-past ways So yeah, Linuxers are part of that Not necessarily.. They are doing good because of cloud and / business services. As far as the home user goes.. they don't care about them anymore. Not as much as they use to anyway. However, this can be said about Apple and MSFT at the moment. Apple is shiving everyone with ###### hardware and MSFT is just like, meh, here take this crappy OS that gets 20 updates a day that adds/removes features adds bugs and is highly inconsistent and sends back information to our servers.

    WPS Office 2019 is now available in the Microsoft Store

    I believe ads are gone completely but there are features missing in free version, mainly around PDF handling and conversion. Took them long enough to release 2019 when they were available in the Chinese website. I remember when I started using WPS (when they still called Kingsoft) there were offline with ads and also watermarked printing (which now they've removed it). Otherwise the formatting is on par with Microsoft compared to Open Office or Libre.

    Phone innovation has been stagnant for years now. Foldable phones will be the next gimmick we’ll here about constantly. Do you genuinely think it's a gimmick? I think if it's implemented correctly and well, it is the next big thing. For now I do. Of course in the future if it actually provides some utility, greatly enhances my experience, and has exceptional software support, then I’ll jump on board. Something from out of the HBO show Westworld comes to mind. haha yes! But unfortunately, we're probably a long way from that

  24. I'm surprised that Azure keeps growing this much, not because it's a bad service (I like it more than AWS), but Christ! 74% Y-o-Y it's almost unbelievable when you reach the billions!
