I have a couple of questions that I am not very sure how to go about doing it, so I am hoping someone can enlighten me the correct way of doing it.
1.) I have finally shifted all my workload to my Macbook (yeah!), and I guess it is time for my 6yr old Acer to "retire" officially. Took me a while to transfer all my files. However, the question is, what am I supposed to do with the Acer?
Although it has served me well over the years but frankly speaking, it is time for it to "go". I have a barely 1yr old desktop which is much more powerful so in a way, it is pointless for me to keep the Acer. My friend said I could sell it for a low-low rate as scraps or spare parts but at the same time, I don't want people to try and recover my files. I don't mind selling it but how do I go about the proper way before discarding my Acer?
2.) Yesterday, I finally converted my place to wireless surfing! I got someone from Starhub to come down and set up everything for me (FOC, since I also subscribed to cable). So when I asked him about setting up a password to prevent anyone from mooching, he said "Starhub doesn't encourage their customers to install passwords because customers may forget their passwords, and it becomes their problem"
The technician also mentioned that he has "created a filter so that nobody can have access to my network". I followed my router's instructions that comes with the package and went to the website. Trouble is, I don't know how to go about setting a password and (gasp), I am scared that I may just screw up something easily.
Hope someone can enlighten me because I am pretty much a tech idiot, and this is my first time I am using wifi at my place so a lot of things appear quite alien to me.
