I have a DSL Internet connection, shared via a Wi-Fi router (a Buffallo). I’d like to provide access to this to a friend (who lives within wireless range), but without them being able to access any devices on my network (such as my windows file shares) or see any of my traffic (my web browsing etc). What’s the easiest way to do this? [more inside]

What do I do about sharing internet with housemates who kill it?
Will a router with QoS solve the problem?

Are there any tools I can use to which person is killing the internet and what program it is? [more inside]

How can I share a single file or folder on my Mac? I am always connected to the internet, have seen what gazillions of "upload first" file sharing websites and services can do (MobileMe, Pando, YouSendIt, etc.), but it seems to me there should be a way to right click on a file, choose "share & email link," write & send that email and be *done* with it. My recipient can then download said file straight off my machine. Does anyone know of any solutions which are even close? Thanks!

Some people think this is against the spirit of the endeavor. [more inside]

Help setting up OSX leopard so that my wife can see AND edit all of my iphotos and itunes files?I am the administrator. She shares the same iMac, so this is not a network sharing issue i gather.
I have read about 30 articles by googling, all are either pre-leopard or way beyond the understanding of this new iMac owner...use of terminology foreign to a newbie. Thank you!

How do I change the resolution of my Macs desktop when sharing the screen and viewing on a linux machine using tightvnc? I am screen sharing my Mac Mini w/ leopard. I can log in and see the screen using TightVnc on a Linux machine. However, I can only get full resolution that is painfully slow over the Internet. The low quality options on the VNC viewer have no effect and I can't find anysettings on the Mac to lower the quality.

If I had just a few, or if I wasn't adding/subtracting podcasts regularly, it wouldn't be a big deal. Is there a way I can place my list of podcasts on the web that I can update regularly, with descriptions and links to the subscription feeds?
