X10 POPUP WINDOWS
Many of you will have noticed X10.com using a pop-under ad that's getting 
really annoying. Well, they've got an opt-out setup that'll put a cookie 
in your browser and defeat it. Their site has a link for that, which will 
put a cookie with a 30 day expire into your browser. If you click the link 
below, you'll get a 10 year cookie into your browser.
Remove X10 Ad
Since there's been some confusion, here's a little more detail. when you 
click on this link, you'll get to an X10 page. Along the way to that page, 
you'll get a cookie injected into your browser. That cookie has a site 
name of x10.com a name of PopUnder and a value of 0, and an expiration 
date 10 years in the future. From now on, when a site tries to pop the 
x10.com pop-under, the x10.com website checks to see if you have the 
PopUnder cookie set, and if you do (and it's value is zero) they will 
refrain from opening the pop-under advertisement.

Setting Up Internet Explorer for Kids Surfing
  I have wanted for a while to feel comfortable letting the kids surf the web,
  however, because I know how easy it is to find content that really shouldn't be viewed
  by kids, I set about making their computers Internet Explorer "Kid Friendly".
  
  This template is the result of my tinkering.  And since I think it is slightly more 
  complicated than the average parent will be able to deal with in under 10 minutes, 
  I wrote this guide for people to follow.  
  
  The result is a computer that you can let the kids surf on, and not have to worry
  about what they are about to see.  With the bonus being that you do not have to 
  specifically authorize every web page they ever want to go to.

Deep Dish Cylindrical Parabolic Antenna for WI-FI
  This guy has really done his homework on antennas.  I was just about to buy a
  commercial antenna for my access point to fix a low signal strength problem when I stumbled
  across this site.
  
	http://osiris.urbanna.net/antenna_designs/projects/template/  
	
  Following this simple template, and using stuff I had laying around the house, I managed to 
  achieve a 9db gain with a 6-inch version of one of these attached to my USB connected 802.11b
  network adapter, all without even touching the internals of the unit.  
  
  I would like to thank Mr. Erskine for the countless hours he must have spent researching this 
  design, and for sharing it with the world for free.
