I forgot that National Engineering Week had started, I blame the sick harddrive at work.

But, I intend to donate $200 to Tsunami Reconstruction efforts by Engineers Without Borders.

Faxing over VoIP

While it wasn't a very scientific test. Because I changed both my router and added the DSL filter, and the destination fax is different.

I just successfully set two faxes since making the changes.

Instead of, before, sending a 3 page fax taking 21+ minutes and failing on page 3...but enough made it that I got an email confirmation that they can start the process.

Just now I sent a 3 page fax via Lingo and Vonage. The Lingo one took 3:11 to send while the Vonage one took 1:43 to send.

Not sure what that says about Lingo versus Vonage....especially since Lingo is going to be where I'm going to park my fax machine. Lingo does distinctive ring...so for a little bit extra, I'll probably reimplement this solution for sharing voice and fax on a single line.

Only hitch in the process is my Vonage number is of the non-portable variety...and I really don't want all that hassle of telling the whole world about a new phone number. But, I have toyed with getting a Universal number in a different state or perhaps even a different country....so that's what I'll probably get for Lingo.

Port Triggering in Sveasoft

Well, I was kind of hoping I could do it all using just the web interface....and it was close, I suppose.

There's probably some bug in how the iptables are set for the triggering from the web interface. So, I added some iptables commands to rc_firewall for port triggering, and has it working.

Down side, the way I have the rules jammed into the iptables...is that they occur before the logging events, so I lose the ability to see traffic that is passed by a trigger or traffic arrives when there wasn't a trigger.... I'm running RC6a, and I hear pre7 just released...though I'm not ready to rush out to this version just yet.

WRT54GS w/Sveasoft and QoS == better latency

Well, one nice thing about the QoS/Wondershaper of the Sveasoft is that it has helped my ping times. As shown in my DSLreports line monitoring.

Pair of Silver Sensors

Well, I did it....I finally tried this combination.

I mounted one silver sensor in the vertical and the other in horizontal, combined the two using a regular splitter and the another splitter to feed my two SIR-T351's.

I had observed once that in vertical, ABC (VHF 13) would come in good, though I would lose other stations (namely UPN and PBS)...probably because in this orientation it is more directional.

While in horizontal, I generally can get everything except ABC.

Until I made this change I was combining VHF rabbit ears with the Silver Sensor....set the Silver Sensor typically to what is best to get UPN and the rabbit ears to get ABC....whether I get PBS or not, wasn't a big deal. Usually it worked out that the unit on the right would work, and the unit on the left would not. Though the Silver Sensor would be aimed significantly different than the other...so I figured stuff in the walls and location w.r.t. windows was the factor.

And that was a Silver Sensor and a Rabbit Ear on each receiver.

Too early to tell the long term reliability of this setup, but hopefully I won't have to be fidding with 4 antennas every other weekend.

WRT54GS & Lingo

Well, I removed some of the wiring nest...and worked in the WRT54GS.

Everything went smoothly...the only tweaks afterwards mainly involved getting PRTG and WallWatcher working again.

With WallWatcher, the WRT54GS seems to log way more. Or perhaps the old router was just ignoring more. Though it could just be interface that logging is done at. One thing I started seeing was all the broadcast noise on the WAN interface. Guess it explains why the activity light on the Cable Modem is on solid, even when I'm not doing anything.

Dead Harddrive

Wouldn't you know it...the harddrive in my computer at work died this afternoon.

I managed to run chkdsk enough times to get it to boot finally...but things are serious messed up, that I can't log into my account and services won't start properly. The big problem right now is NTbackup is having issues....so I can't toss my data onto a tape.

Dell is supposed to be dispatching a new drive for Monday...though I'm on vacation on Monday...and so are a lot of other people. Our local IT person was out today as well.

But, there is supposed to be a ghost server, so that might have been something.

I'm probably gonna trundle in tomorrow and try copying some of my data onto network shares, and then shut it down until Tuesday.

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.
