Hy everybody !
I have a problem with my WSUS server. A error appear showing that is install only at 99% some updates on computers (see my attachment).
It is possible do refresh and install this updates ?
Thank you !
I have an old Thompson ST780i WL router and Speedport W 724V Type Ci that I don’t use any more.
How would I connect a laptop and I desk pc, let’s call them A and B, to a printer (C) in a small network?
The current situation is that A and B are via Wifi connected to a third router D, which is out of this story. I have no physical line access to it.
If the printer had Wifi connection ability I guess that the story would be over very quickly once I connect C to a network that A and B are on.
For now, A and B are connected to a C with a line cable, one at each time, so I need to unplug A and plug B and vice versa, which is annoying.
Could I use Thompson or Speedport to create a separate network and connect via ethernet A and B so the can print at the same time not dealing with cables anymore?
Before you consider what I want to achieve as insane from a security standpoint, please continue reading:
I’m setting the password for the local admin account on all computers in the domain with a startup script which contains the password in cleartext, of course.
I have limited file permissions to the script and only Domain Computers and Domain Admins accounts can access the file.
To keep it short, do you still consider what I want to do as insane or is this OK from a security standpoint?
My use case is as follows:
I just need the local admin accounts in case of a fallback scenario: A computer drops out of the domain or its network adapter goes broken or something like that and then I’d need the local admin account.
In the domain that I’m administering from now on, different computers have different local admin passwords, and the previous administrator (from whom I took over) can’t remember the credentials he once set so I thought I had to reset them all.
Researching the Nascom 2 computer, I found these schematics for the system. Interestingly, after the schematics for the computer itself, there is an added schematic for a disk controller to use with it. This schematic has a copyright statement describing it as owned by “Lucas Logic Limited”, a company that I can find no references to in any of the Nascom related material I’ve looked at. I would assume that it was simply a third party adapter, except that the details on the schematic give an address for this company, and it is the same address (in Wedgenock Industrial Estate, Warwick, UK) that is widely published as the primary contact address for Nascom computers; it appears that Nascom was a trading name of Lucas Logic Ltd (although whether this was always the case I have been unable to ascertain).
Lucas Logic Limited was later renamed, and is currently called Artemis International Corporation Limited and apparently specialises in enterprise investment management software.
Lucas Logic’s branding (visible in the schematics linked above) was similar to the current branding of automotive parts manufacturer Lucas Electrical, which like Lucas Logic is also based in the UK Midlands. But as of today, there doesn’t appear to be any actual association between these entities. Is it known how they were related?

To but it shortly, do you still consider me mad or is this OK from the security standpoint?

Considering the PDP-8, PDP-7, PDP-9, PDP-1, even though they are completely different architectures (from a programmer’s or compiler’s point of view at least), they have some remarkable similarities in some details.
For example, the microcoded instructions on both the PDP-8 and PDP-7 have
cml, and single or double rotations, which conveniently build up small constants in the accumulator.
The same two computers also have exactly the same skip instructions, and a bit in the instruction to indicate an indirect memory access. The same operations are also available in the PDP-1 instruction set, as are, obviously, things like
The same two computers also have an optional EAE, which provides another register
MQ and some mathematical operations, though the size of
MQ obviously varies between 12 and 18 bits.
So straight away, my mind is supposing that there’s some kind of commonality in the implementation as well.
- Maybe there’s even a single part, which implements all these operations on a bit or group of bits, and which is installed in all these computers to implement a register and ALU.
- Maybe there’s some part which takes a bitfield from an instruction, and determines which of these operations need to take place (and is thus part of the instruction decoder) and is installed in at least some of these computers.
Are there large subsystems in common between the implementations of both 12-bit and 18-bit PDPs, which are responsible for the patterns and similarities between these two groups of computers?
