Re: Network Printer Issue

A few possibilities: My knee jerk reaction is to run a sniffer trace (wireshark). If you don't have networking equipment that can mirror the port put the printer on a hub and your laptop on a hub and run the trace and see where the jobs are coming from. From there it's a matter of tracking down the ...

Re: Ubiquiti experiences?

Ubiquity wifi is dirt cheap access. Don't expect a lot of features or redundancy out of it. I see it a lot at places that give out free wifi access, airports especially. For enterprise access where you need to support throughput, qos, roaming, or anything else I would look at something else. I've he...

Re: dymt reloaded

Any recommendations for breweries around Madison, WI? I'll be there in a few weeks, and will be newly of legal drinking age, so breweries hold a certain attraction. New Glarus if you can get to it is the premier microbrewery for the state. Otherwise my choices in order would be: Karbon 4 Ale Asylum...

Midwest Supplies site hacked (Homebrewing)

I know there's a few homebrewers on here so I thought I'd put the word out to keep an eye on your credit cards if you used Midwest Supplies in the past.

Re: USB Wifi

What are you going to be doing with it? If you're just using it for internet access what kind of bandwidth do you have coming to your flat? Having a high falootin' wi-fi card is great for sharing files locally but if you're connecting up to a 10 mb internet connection it really isn't needed. I would...

Re: World Of Warcraft

Whispers were directed to individual toons back when I played and had no tie into individual accounts or overall battle.net accounts. Not sure if that's changed or not. I had mods that would forward whispers from the multibox toon to the main toon I was playing. I would say, if they haven't changed ...

Re: Network Switch Life Expectancy?

I've had places pull out switches in full working order that are over 10 years old. Usually it isn't so much the life expectancy of the switch as the maintenance cost of support programs that get companies to switch. Many modern switch vendors offer a limited lifetime warranty on stackable type swit...

Runes of Magic

I couldn't find where anyone had started a thread on this so I thought I would. Runes of Magic is a free to play MMO that seems to clone WoW, I think they make money off microtransactions. I've been playing it for the last 2 days and it seems to have the same WoW addiction factor to me. The questing...

...Any idea how long those take for primary/secondary fermentation at roughly 70-73 degrees? Primary is generally a week. Just watch for the airlock to stop bubbling. Secondary is more of a judgment call. I've had beers in secondary for months and one guy in my brew club had a batch in secondary fo...

The yeast is only there for carbonation in sodas. Letting it work for longer will turn it into a beer (if you can call it that).

If you have netflix you can start with the new Dr, which seems pretty good to me. I'd never really watched it before then but it was pretty easy watching.
