The Digital Hotspotter

Link: http://www.canarywireless.com/

Well, I was waiting for the arrival of my iPod Shuffle. But, UPS showed up with two packages in hand.

The other item was The Digital Hotspotter. I had ordered this last month, but it was delayed. And, now it is here. Didn't get any advanced notice that it was coming, so it was a bit of a surprise.

Kind of boring playing with it in my apartment, since it basically found most of the APs that I already know about....the ones that have me crowded onto channels 9 and 3....

Wonder what I'll find when I'm at work.... &#59;D

Meanwhile, things with the iPod Shuffle aren't go so well. Not sure if it is supposed to work plugged into a USB 2.0 hub...but seems the hub that I have has bad ports on it.

Couldn't load tunes on it and then something about corrupt file and then my machine died -- BSOD. I got it up again and tried restoring it using the iPod Updater. It hung again....that's when I gave up on the USB 2.0 hub. Move it to an old (though somewhat flaky) USB 1.1 hub...where it worked. The restore completed and later I got iTunes to slowly start loading tunes on to it.

Decided it was time to crawl back to work....so left it to continue loading and fully charge.

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
