Trust Local Addresses in VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal

VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal feature stops all kinds of network attacks, including port scans, ping floods and more. However, you may have some devices on your network that send out pings or other requests that may be interpreted as attacks. To prevent this, add them to the Trusted Addresses list so they won't be blocked. You can even add a range of addresses with wildcards, such as 192.168.1.*.

Actually, Lex doesn't tell us much about what to do with the old iPad. A question is: are we limited in how many devices we can run our apps on? If so, how do we tell our computer that the iPad 1 is gone - left home never to return? Or is that unnecessary?

Seems to me he covers it pretty well: hand it down, donate it to charity, give it to a school, sell it personally, sell it to a reseller like NextWorth or Gazelle, turn it into a single-purpose device, and so on... If you have other suggestions for what do with an old iPad, please leave them here!

Luckily, there's no need to deactivate an old device or anything like that; apps are tied to an iTunes account, not to individual devices. (iTunes accounts are tied to Macs, though, so if you ever get rid of a Mac, it's easiest to choose Store > Deauthorize This Computer before you reformat the hard drive.)
