Forums are going the way of...well something. Unless you’re on Reddit yelling into the void none of these kids have time for forums. It’s not stimulating enough. Oh God I sound like my father used to!

Still love the gryphon, by the way.
Twitter has lots of hobbyists inciting discussions technology, science, literature and philosophy. Forums are probably just an old people thing.

Yeah.

This place pretty much could be called "Geriatric Malware Tips."

There may be a new sub-forum that could help many of the rapidly aging people here.

Some of the proposed pinned threads may include:

- "Tell me Again what a virus is."
- "I've forgotten how to turn my computer on again. What should I do?"
- "Mindfulness of looking at teen porn in the assisted living community."
- "How not to get too distracted by the internet and poop yourself."

When I come to MT sometimes... I can actually catch a whiff of 'old people smell' through my computer.

Yuck.

Nothing personal to anybody here. I'm sure your 'old people smell' is very nice.

But I'm here as a service to you all.

You're Welcome.

And.... uh.... Gryphon Guardian will be a great adjunct in the protection of oldschool (the concept, not the person ;)) computer setups.

Hehe, I guess we're all getting old:p

Definitely things like Twitter have changed the landscape a bit, but I still think traditional forums like this one still have a place. Maybe it's just me, or I'm getting old;):p, but I feel like traditional forums are easier to follow than things like Twitter, but again that's just my opinion. In saying this however, things do come and go as time goes on. Look at Facebook, while still very popular it's slowly dying IMO. Things like Twitter, Instagram and other new social media sites have come and people are switching away from Facebook. While I don't see Facebook going away anytime soon, there will be a time were we go, remember Facebook?

Some of this also has to do with the fact that as time goes on people get board and/or need a break away. Sometimes it's just life and people become more and more busy, leaving less time for these things. Such is the case for me, while I would love to participate more, life is just busy and I don't have the time like I use to have to log on and post. In saying that though, I still do follow the forum and try to keep up with whats going on, even if I'm not always logged on.(y):emoji_beer:

This statement is paradoxical in that context.
I swear you'll be one of the first to be doxxed if AI can predict people based on their writing.

You do have the long wall of text writing predisposition.

My Gryphon Guardian arrived.. Very impressive little device. Longer range than the Unifi Pro I was testing last year, and cheaper w/security.

Also, along with Gryphon Guardian they released a big new firmware update and new app.

WPA3 is now available on the Gryphon (and Guardian). Also they added some really nice organizational changes to the app, as well as more categories for devices to be protected with the ML/AI traffic inspection.

I have no update on iOS, but there’s a new app with 6 reviews. No announcement of a new app. Very odd.

I've not found anyone who does better, lots who do much worse.
None do it better. Unless you want to spend $1,200 on a Fortinet, learn to program it and manage policies, then pay a $300 a year renewal on the license, you aren't going to find better - and even then, better is questionable as the parental controls and AI/ML IPS on Fortinet aren't nearly as good as Gryphon. Which sources it's feed from ESET's corporate lineup.

Guardian should retail for around $75-$90 range, and will do the same as the big one, but less range/power, but still way better than normal consumer routers. So people that can't afford the big one, can grab that.

As for the app - with the launch of the Gryphon, there is an entirely new app available. The other app has been deprecated.

Thanks for the tip. Would have been nice for them to inform users. I may have missed a message, but I don’t think I did.

Yeah - the delivery of that information seems to have been a misstep.

I didn't even notice the new app was required until I read some small print on the instructions that came with the Guardian. It looks like they were inundated with support requests so they wanted to issue that email to clarify things.

Got the new app and firmware. I am liking the direction. Still going to keep bugging them about implementing DoT. And I don’t understand their implementation of UPnP, it doesn’t really seem to work. At least not for game consoles or a couple other items. I can live without it anyway in the name of security.

Thanks for that, installed updated app, some nice changes, the Gryphon isn't cheap (decent routers aren't) but probably the best buy I made last year.
