Dell 1800FP Dead

My Dell 1800FP LCD Display has died... :..(

...it was only just over 13 months old.

Now to see if Dell will cover it, I got it separately but for use with my Dell Dimension XPS 2 computer that I got around the same time. Originally, I thought I was going to reuse my old 17" monitor....except when I saw how much better an LCD would be (even though I still have a CRT on my main computer at work &#59;) )

Good news. Dell has arranged to replace it. I have NBD service on my Dell Dimension XPS 2, so they say Tuesday. Perhaps if I had noticed it had stopped working sooner....

Though it was working this morning when I checked my Email, etc....so until at least 2ish this afternoon.

Software Purchases

Does time fly?

Wait, I blogged on the 19th that I was starting my eval of Spambully. I thought I had 2 weeks to test it, but it expired this morning.

Anyways...I registered it.

Meanwhile, last night I decided to pickup an additional to license of RoboForms. Been using this for a long time on my main desktop, decided to have registered copies for my laptop and my computer at work.

Always seems strange buying my own software to use on my work computer.... &#59;D

F5D7130 & WPA update

Well, I opted to switch back to WEP...found my throughput had dropped off using WPA, and for streaming video... speed is more important than security.

PRTG

Link: http://www.paessler.com/prtg/?ref=PRTG4

I've always been curious just how much traffic was flowing in and out of my home network, namely the pattern of the IVS usage.

Now I have been monitoring my broadband connection using the monitoring service at Broadband Reports.com. Which gives me graphs that look like this:

Which just shows that my latency goes up when I'm sending lots of shows.

On a strange impulse, I decided to take a peak at the Belkin site to see if there was a new firmware for my 802.11g APs.

Checking out Spam Bully

Link: http://www.spambully.com

Found out the SPAMAssassin settings are rather limited on my new hosting provider. Having it on results it too many false positives and no options for tweaking/training it.

The old provider had a .spamassassin/user_prefs file in the home directory of the shared account where I could control things. Though the new provider allows you to control which accounts are filtered by it. Useful, because I've had problems with eBay sellers not being able to reach me after an auction because of my spam filter.

Anyways, I've opted to not use it, because of the high level of false positives.

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.
