The new Western Digital media player should be out soon. Looks like a hard drive. You plug a usb drive in to it and then hook it to your tv. It plays all media types for the bargain price of about $100. Not as cool as a Popcorn Hour C200 but way better than an apple iTV.
G2by.com seems to have found a way to create a billboard in WoW. . Now they spawn a bunch of warlock level 1’s with random names and killthemselves spelling a nice ad. I’m amazed that this works to generate revenue. This company g2by.com has been screenshotted on realms all over WoW. They are everywhere.
I hope Blizzard goes the way of Eve online and does a few more rounds of cutting off the gold farmers. I’m getting really tired of the whole thing. Please don’t go to G2by.com and purchase gold. Please don’t go to their website and give them hits. If you want to know information about them, do it with a whois search or google.
PURCHASING ITEMS FROM G2BY.com VIOLATES YOUR EULA. I hope your account is banned.
I just posted suggestions for what to do when you pull your computer out of the box. If you take a few hours and get backups and antivirus going, you will save heartburn later on. Think about it, you will probably get your next computer when this one dies. Will you be prepared for that?
Yup, people ask me if they need it, I’m saying get it now. Time to provide the antivirus vendors with a little cash to develop your AV just before you need it more. Which is later this week to next year.
cat /etc/redhat-release – check the version of Red Hat running on your machine
To connect to the console of a windows box:
start> run> mstsc.exe /console /V servername
Windows vista remembers all the wireless networks you have ever been on. Once in a while you should hop in to control panel> network and sharing> Manage Wireless networks. Here you can drag your favorite networks to the top and delete those pesky ones from the bellagio in vegas.
1st – High performance – 2194
2nd – Power Saver – 1097
3rd – Balanced – 2194
So you can see that the CPU clock speed drops more than 40% in power saver mode on my Dell Precision 6300.
So if you have ever wondered why your computer was so slow when it is unplugged, go check your power settings.
wmic cpu get CurrentClockSpeed
I was trying to find about the quickest way to look for my CPU speed again. I think i like this little wmi one liner. Processor clock speed should be easier to look up, but MS thinks you want to know the model, stepping number before what it is to a normal person. 🙂
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 it , I pay the guy money. Just saying, if it doesn’t work, fix it.
I tried calling Anchorfree tech support at 866-494-4123. The number has been disconnected. I also tried calling their CA number – 408-744-1002. I ended up forwarded to a voicemail of a very unfriendly voicemail message. I left my name, described the pizza place I was trying to get set up and asked for a ring back. That was last week. I give up on using anchorfree and suggest the DD-WRT folks yank it before any more people have to suffer through trying to get it to work.
Anchorfree’s client install works like a dream. Great free proxy service. And if you feel evil, you can easily use it and block the injected banner ads using the mvps hosts file.
