I don’t know how many of you know this or not but I never heard of it before but it’s a neat little trick using the Dictionary app in tiger. If you select a word and press command-control-D you can see the words definition. It works with applications like safri and mail and some others. Pretty cool, so what does talik mean…?1 comment
I just got into Florida today it’s nice and warm about 22ºC today. But as I was leaving I forgot one important thing my UberWiFi antenna!!! Fortunatly I can still get an okay signal but there’s no fun in just a normal antenna. sigh……
Below are some pictures of: the ghetto plane (notice the tape), the one spot where I can get a good signal, all the access points from airport-grandpa’s condo, and the two accesible access points from inside the condo.
Pretty soon here I’m going to be leaving to visit my Grandpa in Florida for spring break. Luckly he lives in a condo and for the past couple of years there has been a nice person with an open but weak WiFi connection. So I decided to go on a quest for
the Holy Grail a way to better my wireless reception. I had many options while on my quest for wireless reception perfection. Should I build a Cantenna or maybe a Omni antenna, but then my brother suggested that I take apart our old broken wireless router and snatch the wireless PC card from it. After some searching I found out that the card is a USR 2410. Sadly U.S. robitics doesn’t have a OS X driver but a company called IOxperts does. Unfortunately it costs $20 and the demo version that I have shuts down the driver after 30 minutes then I have to restart my computer to get it working again. But anyway having having the external antenna increases my wireless reception pretty substantially and I’m looking foward to good, strong WiFi reception.
Here are some pictures of me taking apart the antenna and turning my normal powerbook into a UberWiFi Powerbook
Well here we are, I finally got my blog going.
This blog is going to be about everything from rants and raves to interesting observations and cool projects. I’m going to keep it pretty basic, no really long posts just a few short ones a few times a week. I have a plethora of ideas to get stated with so it should be a good start. As for the site design, don’t get to used to anything yet it will be a while before I get everything how I like it.
Let the bloging begin…….2 comments
