Gateway gt4022 Won’t Boot | Won’t Post | Dead Motherboard

Sunday, December 7th, 2008

The title says most all, the system would start to act as though it was powering up. The LED would come on for a second and the fans would start. The fans stayed on, but the LED went right back off and the system didn’t seem to POST, or show anything on the onboard video. [...]

Offline wikipedia revisited – fast offline wikipedia reader

Sunday, September 16th, 2007

I’ve mentioned offline wikipedia access before mainly because for all it’s flaws, wikipedia is probably the single largest, most comprehensive and best information resource out there. There may be other encyclopedias that are more accurate, but require subscription access… anyway for all the warts it’s a great resource. To many people though it comes as [...]

The CD is dead….

Friday, October 27th, 2006

I’m tempted to say “long live the cd…”, but… EMI’s CEO has declared that the CD is dead. He does point out that you’re not likely to give your Aunt an iTunes download, so “dead” just means “in decline” in this parlance. However, I can’t help but laugh to myself of the notion that I [...]

Another attempt at different hardware problems

Friday, July 14th, 2006

I mentioned some time ago a frustrating issue with the hardware on my desktop that I had finally solved. I got the new system Which was a 64-bit AMD Athlon on an Asus k8N4-E board and a pci-express nvidia based card (6200 TurboCache), 1 GB of memory… Things worked very nice for a while, rock [...]

FreeDos suspended development – nevermind

Wednesday, June 28th, 2006

The Freedos has suspended development. It’s been a 12 year project and really, Freedos has become THE free DOS implementation around. It’s been shipped with “blank” pc’s, integrated into several other projects that use a dos’ish boot environment and the 1.0 release has not officially come. (I think the most recent is a Beta9 Service [...]

The D-Link DWL-800AP+ as a wireless repeater to extend wireless range – Part 1

Monday, January 2nd, 2006

I’ve got a single access point for my wireless network layer at the house and unfortunately have at least one real “dead spot” in the house. As luck would have it that dead spot is at the couch… so for some time I’ve looked at ways to extend the wireless network range or other ways. [...]

Joystick calibration under linux

Thursday, December 29th, 2005

I don’t know off the top of my head of a graphical joystick calibrator for linux, but there is a command line utility that’s dead easy to use…. jscal I found the tip in a flightgear mailing list after having a hard time with one of the first flights. The stick was very far off [...]

Building RPM’s – building from tarballs

Wednesday, December 28th, 2005

Again – I’m NOT an expert on the subject, but have had some success with building rpm’s from either src.rpms (covered last time) and building from tarballs… This entry will talk about the simplest kind of rpm build from tarballs. This is a situation where the developer’s in their great foresight have actually got a [...]

Network administration over the holidays

Saturday, December 24th, 2005

Nobody wants to be tied to their job over the holidays, but what if someone has hacked your servers and is using your machine to scam thousands of people a day? Does that keep for two weeks? Does someone monitor the abuse address? Incidents.org has a post on messages they’ve got from some reporting to [...]

Linux php-exploit bot

Friday, December 23rd, 2005

Incidents.org writes to remind as that bot’s aren’t just for Windows. The recent PHP exploits have seen the use of the “kaiten” bot. After infection on the system it connects to an IRC server. It would primarily target linux systems. They do give a very good way to blunt most Linux bot-style malwares…    Send [...]
