    I can haz leet - how many you can remember in ONE day?

    Seriously - I got a bit freaked the other day, things kept telling me I was leet! Firstly I was doing some fundraising and as you can see there (unless my sister has donated and taken it up!); the total raised was £1,337. Then later that day I got a couple of pay slips (where I work is a...

    opera master password lost

    Well - it may not be - can anyone advise the Opera restrictions on password, like length and spcial char stuff? Then maybe I can remember it.... alternatively should that fail - anyone know a reset or similar or should I just rip the thing out and go again?

    Anyone heard of Yoggie?

    It's some code on a USB stick - read a review from 2008 here... Why do I mention it? Well a client came in yesterday with a laptop asking us to install it for them... actually they claimed the PC had been borked and would need a reinstall due to their attempts, but it turned out all was...

    Simple content update

    I am (yet again) setting up a site, a very simple site, for some folks. You can see the Beta (very early) here and I am about to implement something so that there can be minimal CMS capability. I want to keep it very simple. So the only updated page will be the one that links to a document...

    Tell me if I am mad - server in a shed

    Well - I suspect this is a crazy idea - but anyway I have just moved and although I have a server (thanks Lord) there is no where to put it. At the moment it is in my office, and I have negotiated plugging it in there - but to SSH in and so forth is less than ideal with my current ISP and they...

    Two head up on Dell optiplex 620

    I just bought one of these - hoping it will work since I am running Lucid Lynx 64 bit on one of these dual core Dells and so far everything is hunky dory except I want a two head up display and there seems to be a dongle thinger I need with the Radeon X600 or whatever graphics card they seem to...

    I pwn money (maybe)

    long time no post - after about five years withh zero disposable income soon I shall have some (yay!). immediately I find I feel a powerful urge to build myself a somewhat more state of the art desktop and I am so out of date I thought I should come here for tips - the only item I could...

    A geeks worst nightmare (true BLAG horror)

    last week at my new job a colleague was telling me about the BLAG meeting they had been at... and the main man at BLAG had just got back online.... But the horror story is what took him offline... And it makes the burglary I suffered and the loss of my mobile computing pale by comparison...

    Does anyone scroogle?

    I was a bit amazed when a search of OSNN for scroogle came up blank. So I thought a thread addition was in order.... and await thoughts and/or opinions....

    If you are really skint/green/both

    then you could do worse then check out the place where I work now... I'm meant to be adding to the site some listings for various items that may seem a bit random but are really quite pricey bits we can knock out cheap after harvesting them from scrapped and recycled machines. Stuff like...

    How to find a lost DHCP server?!

    I cannot help but smile... things are a bit hectic at my new place of work to say the least - there are a number of networked servers and a LOT of kit in various states of reuse or recycling.... we have all sorts of kit like banks for mastering hard drives and cloning in batches, the statutory...

    3MX or maybe Mininova anyone?

    Since acquiring my ElonexOneT BEFORE I had a job offer (oh how I wish I had waited and used the money towards an MSI 1510!) I have been doing some research into how to make the best of the hardware. Seems the guts of the Elonex revolve around a TI 400MHz CPU and that with the addition of an SD...

    Finally snagged a job...

    Following on from my work placement I'm starting work on Tuesday. I'm working at the place where BLAG grew and I expect I'll be spending half my time at least during the first three months in a Big Yellow storage unit going through about two thousand machines sorting those that will post from...

    Hi there as I've mentioned somewhere I'm in the middle of a placement at Netuxo and trying to press on with the placement of a dozen iMac and a switch/cabling to set up an internet cafe. They're doing this for free and just need space/desks/chairs/broadband provided. But I am having to hunt...

    Netbook - hardware and OS considerations

    I posted this on the Justlinux forum, but have not had a reply and so thought I would ask around here - though I'm not sure if netbooks fit in this forum it is definitely where I would put it for myself - it was that or general hardware... Having been through an HP2133 (SUSE fail, there are...

    Cleaning G4 OSX install

    I have finally made the time to get panther onto that G4 (there are old threads for this). It seemed to go through as an upgrade rather than a clean install though... But once it was there the password resetting was a breeze, because I had OSX and the install disc ;) Now there is one more...

    Accessibility help! Visual impairment...

    Hi One of my latest pet projects is trying to sort a laptop for my old man. Now he is 75 this year (if he ever sends me an email I'll count it as mission succeeded!) had lost all sight in one eye and with glaucoma has limited vision in the other.... Although I have a highly IT literate...
