Why not edit the software development subform to support networking aswell? Theres just not enough activity in that forum to warrent the subform.

I would be very interested in this. I think it could benefit the forums and the members a lot. There are so many questions and random threads floating around anyway with questions on networking and security, it definitly deserves its own thread.

I wouldn't let Retsam moderate the forum, he doesn't know about wireless and helping 15 year olds bond three wireless cards for "greater speed, duh!".
Well, if that would be the case then it might be a good idea to just make a AV/AS thread and sticky it. I don't think any others will appear easily.

They would, they always do, just browse the Security forum over on http://www.dslreports.com

That forum always incites me to riot.

So is there any chance of this actually happening? I think it owuld be a great addition to the forums. I know personally, I have PM'ed evilghost multiple times about internet/networking stuff and I'm sure hw ould rather not have it in a PM and in a thread somewhere...

I hope so Bearclaw, I think it would be a good addition to a tech forum, not to mention what gems of wisdom we can get out of some of these guys.

Well, I don't recall you posting asking about AV/AS on several threads at once

Moreover, you installed a linux distro all by yourself, and this alone separates you from the kind of newbies Evilghost and me were talking about
