You connect second router (or access point) to one of LAN ports and switch on wifi power saving on the BT hub. You have access to free access points and you do not share yours. Which doesn't matter all that much as those BT WiFI and OpenZone hotspots are slow and suck donkey's balls. 3G is faster than most of them and with better coverage.
Since server is always on, use it for media centre. Put cheap video card - Nvidia G210 is more than enough and supports VDPAU. Then connect it to TV directly using HDMI or if not available (walls, server conveniently hidden, too far away, etc), use HDMI over CAT5/6 extender. Add wireless keyboard and you're set. For added fun, put MediaTomb on it, if you have some DLNA clients on the network.
I'm interested in what Slashdot community can suggest to help them integrate more. I know company can allocate some budget to it, although reasonable. Do you have experience of working in similar environment? Or maybe you have some ideas that you’d like to see if you were in such situation? Maybe you know some incentives that can bring people together?"
Logmein.com is the simplest I found. Web-based and free. Try it. There are other options but this one looks easiest for non-IT inclined person.
I've found many IP cameras that fulfill the requirements, but although supported in Linux, don't work with Skype. From USB webcams there is Logitech Orbit, although it uses software for pan/tilt.
Does anybody have working setup like that? What camera do you use? I need to stress that Skype is the only option, as much as I would like to go for some FOSS solution, it will not happen."
I feel little sorry for MSFT. Just a little...
I also find it annoying. If you add that thick bar in Win 7, and then Ribbon from Office and some assorted stuff like window borders and status bar, there is suddenly no space to do any work. That is so ridiculously silly. I cannot call it progress, rather walking backwards.
Then there is netbooks' 1024x600. Thanks to MSFT for mandating max specifications for netbooks.
Damn that should be a new RickRoll
>>What we need is a "you don't want to use C: right now, trust me" signal. Ever tried to use Firefox while copying something big? Why does it take ages to display a webpage when it does not need to use the disk?
It only works like that on Windows. I think it's mostly about bad system design. I have no such issues on my Linux machine, but lots on my wife's Windows one. Both are the same Thinkpad laptops, so fault can only be on OS side.
Half this on eBay
That's the reason I'd like to have option in Adblock to load ads but do not show them on the page for whitelisted sites. This way everybody wins.
Sadly nobody cares...
I've seen. Be Internet in London, around Stockwell. My uptime was the same as my Linux server - both shutdown when I forgot to top up electricity after 9 months...
Yes, it can happen, but most companies don't give a damn about that as most customers don't have a clue.
It's nice to be ripped off
I always thought that Cisco should almost give you those books for free, to make more CCNAs so it would be a no-brainer for companies which hardware to buy as finding support would be easier. But in the real world...
Anyway, all technical books are like that. MCSE from MSFT is 40 quid each.
You know what is the most terrifying?
I'm a foreigner in England and found that I know grammar and spelling better than most of my English friends. We're talking about people who passed through basic education system here, and at least half of them also through higher studies.
If you ask them about grammar, apostrophe rules or spelling they will just say they never studied this. Nobody ever though them this. Then you wonder why all this is in total shambles.
Problem is that all kids are prepared to pass those stupid tests and outside them they know jack shit. There are exceptions, but general population is similar to Idiocracy one.
Wouldn't be better to offer fast booting Linux (Moblin?) and dual boot with Win? Then users can access nice and quick Linux environment or wait for Win if they "really" need Office.
Android is good for phones, but that's how far it goes...
