Daft Punk

I don't suppose anyone else has caught this show in the past? Daft Punk's stage show is, in a single word, amazing.

I was there. I'm still on a high from it.

Oh, and, if you wanted to catch this show (that is, the pyramid), you can't. The Sydney show was the last time they ever perform it.

Any wireless broadband users here?

11 November 2005 - 01:23 PM

I use wireless broadband provider here in Australia, and I know these exist across the globe.

I'm wondering if anyone else reading this uses such a provider, and if you do, does it use Navini products, such as the wireless modem (commonly known as a "wabbit")?

Do you have problems with reception, timeouts, latency, etc etc etc?

If you are still answering yes, then keep reading. I may have a solution for you.

While reading a broadband forum for Australian ISPs, I found a nifty little idea that really seems to work - the pizza box reflector.

http://community.web... ... 2265XFsISC

I used the box the modem came in - it's roughly 30cm x 30cm in size, and once cut folds out nicely into the corner shape you need. A shoebox or something similar would work. Line it with aluminum foil.

Go here and download the NavDiag tool: http://www.navini.co...erdownloads.htm <- you'll notice it's provided in windows, Linux and Mac formats.. alot of companies have stuff to learn from this mob.

Now, test your modem using the tool without the reflector in place. Lower reception readings would commonly be an absolute sync strength in the -90dBm's.

Now put the reflector in place and keep rotating your wabbit until you find the best possible reading. I managed to get mine down to -86dBm from a max of 98 - that may not sound like much but it makes a huge difference.

It all may sound stupid but I believe it works, and works very well.

Rawr. I need the Welcome screen back.

I did a silly thing, and installed a custom login program. As soon as I did, I decided I didn't want it, so I uninstalled it and forgot about it.

Later that night I was burning a DVD while I was out, and my genius sister decided it was a good time to use the PC - thanks to the program, fast user switching and the welcome screen is disabled, so my before-mentioned genius sister decided to log me out.

I googled the solution and fixed it (http://windowsxp.mvps.org/ginadll.htm) but the Welcome screen and fast user-switching still won't work. I need it back, because my sister doesn't ask if she can use the computer or not - she just does.

Any ideas?

Problem with switching from Classic to XP style

12 September 2005 - 08:38 AM

I'm having a problem I've never encountered before with display properties. I'm currently using a shell extension application, and in order to make some of the themes function properly, I need to switch from Classic to XP style.

Even with the application killed, and with no other programs running on the desktop, doing so hangs the machine.

Short of formatting, I am at a loss to solve the problem. Does anyone have anything they could suggest?

SMS application

I know these kinda apps exist, but I'm interested to know if anyone uses one.

I use Skype often to call friends overseas, but I'd love a similar program that will send text messages in the same kind of way.

Does anyone know of an app?
