Family Friendly Router – Skydog

Looking for a way to better control and monitor your children's Internet usage? We love Skydog!

Since so many of us at Intrust have kids, we're always searching for the most effective ways to protect them while they surf. One of our team members starting using Skydog and we've found it to be one of the best family friendly routers available.

The Two Fatal Flaws of Azure IaaS

I am very excited about the potential of Microsoft’s Azure Infrastructure as a Service offering. But for now all I am seeing is potential and not something ready for most companies I work with. Azure’s pricing, flexibility and performance is very attractive, but two things hold it back:

Azure currently only supports a single site-to-site VPN. Granted, there are plans to add support for multiple sites in the future, but for now a company can only have a single location connected securely via VPN to their virtual private cloud.

Use a Red Solo Cup to do the Dishes

If you ever break or lose the drain stopper for your disposal you can substitute a red solo cup!

After cleaning up after a recent party we discovered that the drain plug for our disposal was lost. We don’t know if one of our friends is a clepto, or if it was just accidentally thrown away.

What you need to do is enable Remote Access Account Lockout on the Network Policy Server by setting the appropriate values in the registry.
