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.*.

Head-mounted Screen

Send Article to a Friend

A new screen from Reflection Technology has the physical dimensions of a sugar packet, but the viewing dimensions of a 12" monitor. The screen uses a headband to attach to your head and extends a few inches out from the headband in front of one of your eyes. When wearing the screen, an image of the screen floats visibly in space in front of you, allowing you to view the display, but insuring that nobody else can see it. Called the Private Eye, the screen has possible uses whenever a standard monitor is inconvenient or inappropriate. For the $795 list price, you get the CGA monochrome monitor, a 5 foot cable to attach the Private Eye to your computer, the headband, and a CGA adapter board. CGA screens have a lower resolution than 9" Macintosh screens, so a Mac version may not be possible in the near future.
