    Xim4 for sale on the 28th, $124.99

    Sorry, no link - Google is your friend. I am at work and their site is blocked. I read about it on their forums this morning. They claim a much larger production run on this one. Apparently the Xim3 sold out in less than three minutes. This will be my first attempt to purchase one.

    Had to replace a downed switch on Christmas Eve

    One of the Cisco 3750's in our Enterprise stack died last night and I am the only one on call this week, requiring me to drive back in and replace it. I hate that damned stack - seriously needs to be upgraded. They are the old 1.5u models with little ram. Anybody else have a holiday emergency?

    Linux and MacBook wireless issues on enterprise network?

    We are in the midst of a large wireless installation at my work. We have hit a snag and I wonder if any of you have seen this on your wireless networks. Microsoft systems and Androids have no issue with our network. I can roam all over the various buildings here while streaming anything and...

    calling any Visual basic guru's

    I am working on a network diagram with Visio 2013 and need a way to toggle some connectors off and on. The trick is that when one layer is turned off I want the other layer to turn on. Here is what I have at the moment: Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Dim LayersObj As Visio.Layers Dim...

    wood refinishing advice needed

    I have a writers desk that is a simple clean design that I would like to refinish. Currently it is a brown stain that has a slick finish to it. I don't know if it is just a clear coat over a stain, but I can't feel the grain at all so I assume there is something on it. I would like to stain...

    Supreme Commander Forged Alliance FOREVER

    If you haven't tried this, you need to. PC Gamer mentioned it in their last issue so I checked it out. This is the slickest mod I have ever tried. Basically, these guys picked up where the developers left off. They continued with the patches and fixed game play issues. They then created a...

    Need my laptop to recognize 802.1q tagged traffic

    I install wireless PtP Motorola radios in Afghanistan. The final step in this radios configuration is to enable 802.1q tagging, assign the VLAN number, and reboot. This is all done through a web interface on the radio. Once it reboots, that web interface is no longer reachable and the rest of...

    GNS3 problems

    The last time I used GNS3 was on Ubuntu... or Mint... I can't remember, but it was on a Linux platform and it performed flawlessly. In my current living conditions I don't have the space to run a separate Linux box so I attempted the Windows 7 64 bit installation. I can't use it. I have...

    HTTPS issues

    I consider myself proficient in networking (it is my career), but this issue is driving me nuts. I am running Windows 7 and everything works fine, except for HTTPS sites. The browser doesn't matter as I have installed IE and Firefox to test if Chrome was flaking on me and all had the same...

    I have 3550's...

    ...and I need to get rid of them. The thread is in the for sale subforum. I know I'm breaking the rules by posting this but I'm not getting any action with just the for sale thread. It would be a shame to throw these out since they make such great lab switches. Right, I'll show...

    Scored free equipment

    Sometimes it pays to be in the right place at the right time. I work in Iraq and the base I am on is being closed down. This puts me in position to capture equipment being abandoned or destroyed. A housing area was being cleared out and the Air Force found a small rack that was used for...

    Network Interface Cards must be VLAN capable? WTF?

    I am having a discussion with one of my coworkers. We are both certified network administrators with several years of experience behind us. I was discussing Pfsense with him when he mentioned that the NIC in a PFSense box must be VLAN capable (when using VLANs). According to the OSI and TCP...

    Chief KTA325B triple LCD mount rocks

    American made and solid as a rock. It arrived in three boxes totaling nearly 40 pounds. Most of that weight is in the base plate. One piece arrived a little scraped up. Not a huge deal and fixable if I had a paint marker. Apologies for the horrible picture. I had to take it...

    Portable console client needed

    Network based virus scanner?

    PC gamers interested in playing on PS3 - have I got the controller for you.

    I am a PC gamer; I have been for over 20 years when I started copying the code out of gaming magazines to play on my trash-80. My biggest gripe about consoles was the controller. FPS's can't be properly controlled with my thumb. Maybe your thumb, but not mine. There were a lot of people...

    PS3 LAN gaming - specifically, AvP?

    Has anyone here purchased AvP for PS3? I have a growing community of PS3 gamers here in Iraq and our internet connection is crappy. We have been playing MW2 because it supports LAN directly (somewhat crippled, but it works). I am trying to find out if AvP supports LAN play or if an internet...

    COD:MW2...again. Duped into buying on PC.

    Ok, I was one of the (less verbal) upset PC gamers about COD:MW2. I didn't buy it because I wanted to see how the LAN play worked out. I saw some coworkers playing it on PS3. They each had a console and a TV and a dumb switch...a mini LAN. I watched as they setup a LAN match and played for...

    Laser cutting equipment question

    Need a good low profile waterblock for 8800gts

    I just finished a build in my new NZXT Rogue to find that the powersupply sits very low over the top of my video card. It is so low that it is sitting on top of my waterblock where the tubes connect. I need a good replacement waterblock that will let the tubes connect within the body of the...

    3 pin fan header max current ratings?

    I've looked at the ATX standard and couldn't find anything nor does my motherboards manual mention it. I'm curious as to what the maximum amperage and voltage the 3 pin fan headers on the motherboards are capable of supplying. I just purchased a Danger Den DD-CPX1 pump (which uses the three...

    I'm looking for a specific UT2004 map

    A while back I read a review of a map in PC Gamer. The map was one of several by a map maker that has a very unique designing ability. The map I can remember supposedly had a beach with your flag on it. To get to the other base you went up the beach to a cave where there was a portal. Once...

    Cisco switch renaming own config files?

    If you liked the Trackmania series...

    Trackmania United is currently being "prereleased". 10,000 copies are being sold, from what I was told. I bought it. This version blows Trackmania Nations away with the huge amount of environments, cars and different physics applied to each.
