Squid is a Caching Proxy Server that reduces bandwidth, improves response times by caching and reusing frequently-requested web pages so you have a faster Web Experience. Normally, if you wish to do URL Filtering, in other words, blocking by Web Address, you should use SquidGuard or UfdbGuard or DansGuardian to do so since they are specifically made to do URL Filtering more efficiently than the native Squid ACL.

My wife is a gamer. Gamers are a bit...uhh, different from your typical "computer nerds". They're a bit mean, abrasive, and...well, ok, they're pretty much exactly like most computer nerds I know =)

Dell UltraSharp UZ2315H Computer Monitor, 23-inch

My old monitor, a 2003 Dell 15-inch 4:3 flat-screen E151FPb, started having white-out failures, which were becoming more and more frequent, sometimes minutes apart. Powering it off and on always fixed the problem, but sometimes I had to wait minutes before the power on. So I decided to replace it with the subject monitor.

Data Limits in 2015?

Posted 02-11-2015 at 07:57 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
