New additions to the Image Gallery

Well, I have returned from Nashville where I went to the Music & Worship Conference. Had a great time down there and I took a ton of pictures. I have posted all of the images that I didn’t delete in their unedited form. Out of the 1600 shots I took I’ve keep about 500, not to bad I’d say.

Have a Look. I’ve posted in two groups, one group is pictures from the concerts and classes and the other is shots from around the City as we took some time during our final day to look around downtown Nashville.… Click here to read more!

Followup: Thecus N5200

Well, I have my first real drive failure on my hands. The array has been running for a few months now (though not without issue), and when I logged into it the other day I noticed I have a drive on the fritz. The array did not send me an email telling me about the issue but that could be understandable as the array is not currently degraded, I just have a drive with a few errors. I will place an order for a new disk and go through the process of replacing it. The manual says all I need to do is pull the bad drive and pop in a new good one.… Click here to read more!

HP. Not Perfect, but Trying!

I like HP. They make a good product at a competitive price and most importantly they stand behind what they sell. I’m not going to get into details about my job or our server environment ect ect but I do want to relay a couple of things that have helped to cement my position on HP.

Shortly after I was hired on at the company I work for my boss and I (we’re a very large IT department…) were asked to get a server in house and prepared to host a new application in 10 days. Quite a tall order. We looked into a number of server from Dell, IBM, HP ect ect and settled on getting an HP ML 350 G5.… Click here to read more!

Treo as a Modem: The Windows (Part 2)

Ok, Well, I took a minute to try out pairing my Treo to my Windows XP laptop to see what I could do. The short answer is that the process works and I can get online using the phone as a modem.

The long answer is that it happens in typical windows fashion. I paired the phone using the XP bluetooth tools. During that process it asks which services you would like to use with the phone, one of them is to use the phone as a modem. So far so good. As soon as I clicked on the check box though I swear to you 4, yes FOUR wizards opened on my screen.… Click here to read more!

Cingular Treo 750 as a Modem

Ok, using my Macbook and my Treo 750 it was pretty simple to get online. I’ll outline my process here for anyone else who might be curious to try. I will also post about getting it to work with my HP nc6400, assuming I’m able to make it happen…

Step 1:

Install the Treo Cingular modem scripts. All you need to do is download this file and copy the contained files into the /Library/Modem Scripts folder starting from the root of your system drive. You will not find this folder in your users Library folder.

Step 2:

Pair your mac and your phone.Click here to read more!

Online… From the Highway…

Well, We have just left a fireworks display in Portsmouth, NH. While I was there I was thinking about how to make my Treo 750 work as a modem on my Macbook. I of course was unable to get it to work while sitting on a hill in the middle of now where but as we were sitting in the post fireworks traffic I was able to get my airport to connect to some unsecured wireless. I grabbed the modem scripts I needed just as we got moving again. A few miles down road I was able to get my Mac and my Treo to talk to each other..… Click here to read more!
