how to wake on lan?

Posted 10-06-2012 at 02:16 PM by ted_chou12

Shutdown is easy but wake up is hard, well, in terms of both ppl and machines.

In fact, there is a built-in capability in your motherboard bios called "wakeonlan" or wol for short. First, you need to go into your bios to turn it on, since the menu may differ from company to company, you have to sort this out on your own. Make...

Hmmm... Giving the U.S. Justice department legal permission to track our movements, via our cellphone signal, 24 hours a day without even mentioning it to a judge... I'm not too sure about that one. Anyone else have doubts?
