24 September, 2009 (07:45) | Mindless Blather | No comments

On multiple networks we have confirmed issues with Gmail corporate contacts and chat. Mail is also loading very slowly. Maybe it is time to start paying instead of complaining when the free corporate version has problems. 🙂

9 May, 2009 (03:09) | Mindless Blather | 1 comment

There is only so much space in your firmware for crap. Anchorfree’s hotspot software seems like a good idea. but it isn’t. It didnt work in v24, v24sp1 and it sure doesn’t work in v24sp2, it reboots my 2 test aps. I have 4 different models of wireless ap I use with DD-WRT. I love […]

24 February, 2009 (19:35) | Mindless Blather | No comments

On a T1 with a good webcam, skype will gobble up 60-80% of the whole thing. I have firewall graphs and logs to prove it thanks to smoothwall and this new fun tool named Netlimiter. I cut the bandwidth used by skype to 25Kb/s and it seems to be pretty good quality on a 22″ widescreen.

Google Adsense revenue

24 February, 2009 (07:00) | Easy Money Making, Mindless Blather | No comments

So far windowsnerd.com has $16.81 in a google adsense account after being up for over a year. I think that translates to around 50 cents an hour. Maybe I need a different type of content. Movies? hmm.
