RE: Getting a new camera
I have an older Sony camera - a DSC-W50 - it's been repaired once, and my sister's was repaired twice and then broke again, so we replaced it with a canon. She managed to break mine and hers on the same weekend, but has a way with cameras, and cel...

RE: Toshiba
Not necessarily from personal experience, but my understanding is Toshiba Satellites are some of the best business grade laptops, or at least they were, I would assume that they still are. If you're looking for durability, you're probably better o...

RE: USB backports -> front accessible hub?
I just have a 10' usb male to female cord hot glued to my desk. However I wouldn't suggest cheap cables that long since sometimes I can't sync my iPod properly off of it. Hot glue is my favorite thing ever.

RE: Replacement toner? New printer + same toner = cheaper
My family hasn't run OEM ink or toner in a printer for the last 5 years or so. The price of the name brand ink and toners is ridiculous. We run canon and brother printers and multifunctions that do not require chipped ink cartridges or toners. For e...

Windows Live Messenger/Plus! Live is probably your best bet if you're using windows. If you're using Linux, you could try Pidgin (as you mentioned), emesene, or aMSN. On OS X, there is an official Microsoft client (that doesn't support colors); Au...

RE: A hypothetical question regarding Domain Redirection
But on the other end of Patchou's stick, if Person B decided to put his/his company's name as the owner, then Person A may be SOL. Always make sure there is some sort of contract. You're better off spending the $6/year yourself for your domain na...

RE: [Solved] Are there issues with keeping a netbook on for a week?
It's usually recommended to take out the battery and leave the lid open if possible, but I can't see why you shouldn't use it. If you need the battery for backup purposes leave it in, but it's usually better for the battery to not be continuously...

RE: Copying media
I only keep DVD-Rs in my house because they seem to always be recognized in DVD players. Copying a DVD+R to a DVD-R has never been an issue for me. Dual layer media has more compatibility issues than single layer, so depending on your PC you may be l...

RE: Thread starter tag
Just throwing this out there, but there are some forums where the background of the OP's posts are a slightly different color than the rest. This may be a better solution than adding more text to the left column.

RE: No cheap cell providers in the US?
I'm pretty sure T-Mobile's 3g service is AWS, so don't expect any GSM phone to work with 3g speed. It will however work for gsm talk and text.

RE: Switch surround sound channels?
In this case you're not driving the relay with a transistor, so the reverse diode isn't quite as important. It is important to make sure you're using a relay with the correct coil voltage.

Double check your computer's firewall settings. Also: check to see if a newer router firmware exists.

RE: Switch surround sound channels?
You can easily draw 500mA at 5V from a Usb port. If you wanted to get really fancy you could throw some transistors and a flip flop and have it USB controlled, but I'd stick to just getting it working. ;) All kidding aside, Getting power should be ...

RE: Switch surround sound channels?
Depending on how your speakers are hooked up, it may not matter if they are connected to 1, 2, or 6 receivers/amplifiers. Does the end of the speaker cables have 2 bare wires in pinch jacks, rca jacks, or some sort of proprietary connection?

RE: Switch surround sound channels?
I know in a standard 3.5mm audio cable there are two channels and a common return. You could think of them as +R, +L, and -both. I don't know if mixing return paths between the 3 outputs on the motherboard is acceptable or not, so it's quite possi...

RE: Switch surround sound channels?
If you can find a decent 6PDT switch, it's very possible it would work. The alternative is to essentially build a 6PDT out of relays. Though I'm pretty sure you don't need to switch the subwoofer, so you would only need a 5PDT. The following infor...

RE: Is it possible to "trick" an ad hoc network into being a structural?
Which device were you planning on running Linux on? If you're thinking the one connected to the lan, you would have to wipe out Windows (or dual boot and only use wireless half the time), and even then you'd be lucky if the distribution will suppor...

RE: Is it possible to "trick" an ad hoc network into being a structural?
My suggestion would still be with the wireless router. Buy one, turn off the DHCP, and connect it to your current router using the switch ports on both routers. Nothing is stopping you from taking a router to a new residence and running it like this ...
