    Teens Ditch e-mail for Texting and Facebook

    It's true, I've been told I'm 'old' for using IM, and that everyone just texts... coming from someone in their mid teens.

    Connecting rooms with 802.11n?

    Right, but not all the devices are wireless. So say the router is in my bedroom, then out in the living room is an AV stack with a Xbox, Tivo, HTPC, etc. It makes sense to have a single node there to pull down the wifi signal, then attach to all of them over cat5, for instance. Same idea if a...

    Connecting rooms with 802.11n?

    I'm moving into a new apartment and thinking about improving my networking. Normally I have ran a ton of cat5 to get 100mbit between devices, and 802.11g for the laptops. To improve speed and decrease hassle, my thought is to just run cat5 in each room (3 at most), and connect all those rooms...

    .htaccess redirect by domain name

    I have a website accessible from domainA.com/domainB and from domainB.com, both point to the same folder. Is there anyway using an .htaccess file to selectively look at the .com part of the name, and send back a 404 based on it? I'm not familiar enough with them to know, but I suspect this is...

    Probably yes, but there's no precedent to say they act on anything but excess data usage.

    Pay for 5 minutes of work.

    It's very presumptuous of you to say something "very well done and commented" is only 5 minutes of work... Personally I wouldn't put something together like that for less than 50 at least, that's probably why you've gotten no takers.

    Next piece of gear...

    The solution to this is a graduated neutral density filter mounted in front of the lens. I have the Canon 10-22mm and the GND works great with it. Uniform skies and great colors.

    OO Class Organization

    So when you say "have a", do you mean it would essentially be a sibling class? This is the sort of case I have been toying with, I guess the best way would be to have a LED display class, a radio class, create objects for them, and then pass references to those in when creating the clock object...

    OO Class Organization

    I was wondering what thought process some of you go through when organizing classes and their hierarchies in an OO design? I'm doing my first major embedded project, while I'm strong at programming I don't have much education regarding computer science ideology. For instance, I'm doing a basic...

    Clone to smaller drive

    Does anyone know of an easy way/tool to backup multiple partitions on a drive, including boot information, to a USB drive to hold the image, to then clone over to a new smaller hard drive? Normally I never bother cloning, but I have a 500GB drive to RMA that I just spent lots of time setting...

    I think I'm done with the whole HTPC thing. Other suggestions

    I'm getting fed up with the headaches too. Just bought a standalone BR player and an Apple TV (w/ Boxee) to try and simplify life. Boxee has been running great, as long as you're using standard def content. Popcorn Hour and the Sage box look more powerful, but how does the GUI match up?

    How to harness the Googlebot

    Interesting thought, I don't see why that wouldn't work, thanks! How static is the Googlebot's user agent though? I.E. has it reported the same user agent for years, or is this something that it often evolves, requiring update maintenance?

    How to harness the Googlebot

    Does anyone know of a way to selectively choose sub-portions of a page to be indexed by googlebots, and then choose which pages give priority in Google's results? Or at least help to influence this? I've got a whole proper sitemap.xml set already, that Google shows no errors on. I run a...

    SQL Query to delete from two tables

    Redirect VNC Traffic

    Thanks, thats close, and from my attempt at researching it, possibly as close as I will be able to get. Without a deep knowledge of the different layers, I was hoping that I could mask computerA.domainname.com to a specific port, i.e. xxx.dyndns.org:5900, but it appears not.

    Redirect VNC Traffic

    No, I don't think that would work, since I'm not pointing to an html file, or even an http protocol. I guess I just need that subdomain to route to the dynamic domain name, which will route to my home IP/port. I don't know if this is possible with the 1&1 webhost, or I need more physical...

    Rob's HTPC Setup (CableCard, Touchscreen LCD, etc..) PICS!

    I have the same soundbar, it works and sounds fantastic. Picked it up several months ago after raves for it on AVSForums. It does 3:1 HDMI switching, along with pulling audio from HDMI/Digital Coax/Toslink, all controllable from the remote. Works great, sounds great, superb subwoofer for the...

    Solid "hands off" board to pair with Wolfdale?

    Negative, Negative, and Negative. Dropping in a single 7200.10 Seagate or so, and an 8800GT to get a decent bang for the buck. So yea gaming, but nothing on the super high end gaming market that makes it motherboard dependent.

    Solid "hands off" board to pair with Wolfdale?

    PCP&C Fan Spin Down @ Idle?

    Question for you PCP&C supply owners, especially those with a 510-ATX. When your system is booted cold, and the supply is running cool, does the fan stop spinning completely? I imagine theres some logic programmed in to vary the fan speed in accordance with internal temperatures, but I can't...

I've confirmed that it runs fine with Memtest, but I still can't get the system to boot any OS (which is another...
