StarHub, SingNet, M1 Broadband Lags?

Try tomato firmware on your router, that’s if you’re using Linksys WRT54G (including the WRT54GL and WRT54GS), Buffalo AirStation and Asus Routers. There has been a notable performance difference in the free wifi network in my area ever since i’ve flashed the firmware of the wireless router. If you want to say good bye to your lag, only get a router model that supports tomato. That’s all i have to say! Nights all. And i miss bumbum

He is awesome

An article in National Geographic several years ago provided a penetrating picture of God’s wings… After a fire in Yellowstone National Park, forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno’s damage. All the birds were flying for their lives. But one bird did not. Later, one ranger found a bird literally burnt into ashes. Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick. When he struck it, three tiny chicks were found under their dead mother’s wings. The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had carried her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her babies. When the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body, the mother had remained steadfast, because she was willing to die, for the little ones under her wings to live………Dear Friends it’s true that we are safe under His wings from the trials and tribulations of this world. And His love is unchanging and everlasting.

Sharing internet, the way to go

Today, SingNet’s technician finally came down to my place. We had a tiff, cause he didn’t agree with my problems stating that the problem is caused by my own phone devices. I wasn’t in a very good mood after he woken me up from my sleep. But he was patient enough to give definite answers from his point of view and experience. Eventually the ultimate goal from my end is to change the faulty modem since i have already tolerated enough with the faulty modem for a year over. He did, and i also shown him the sluggishness of the modem at the setup interface page. The previous 2wire modem was partially faulty already, and I already did manage to do workarounds and serve 5-6 users in a network environment with users using mainly streaming and downloading services for a year.

I still love my m0n0wall and dd-wrt. 🙂

How to reset a Apple MacBook Mac OS X password?

I have been a avid fan of Apple MacBook. Here’s how it goes,

To reset your OS X password without an OS X CD you need to enter terminal and create a new admin account:

– Reboot
– Hold Command + s down after you hear the chime.
– When you get text prompt enter in these terminal commands to create a brand new admin account (hitting return after each line):

mount -uw /
rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
shutdown -h now

After rebooting you should have a brand new admin account. When you login as the new admin you can simply delete the old one and you’re good to go again!

Second Method

1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install disc (one whose version is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed).
2. Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key. Or, put it in the computer and click the Install or Restore icon you see in the disc’s main window (after which the computer will start from the disc without you needing to hold C). Or, you can use Startup Manager.
3. Choose a language, click the arrow button to continue, then choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu (or from the Installer menu, if using Mac OS X 10.3.9 or earlier). Tip: If you don’t see this menu or menu choice, you’re probably not started from the CD yet.

Windows 7 Tryouts, Windows Firewall with Advanced Security

Windows 7 is really stunning. I’ve had quite a good bit of impression here with this operating system. 🙂 These are solely based on my personal experience with se7en. Btw i’ve been a user of DOS till Windows 7/Server 2008, inclusive of debian/slackware as my favourite list in the opensource technologies and macosx which i’ve used for a year during my course of work at a gaming studio.

w7-1
default

w7-2
nice looking taskbar, very well organised. just requires alittle bit of getting used to.

w7-3
Windows Firewall with Advanced Security

w7-4
80 default inbound rules and couple of mines.

w7-5
default aero theme 🙂

w7-6
landscape theme

w7-7
changing themes !

Here are what took me by surprise,
– Good multitasking capability (slower background tasks – thus faster foreground tasks)
– Good boot-up timing of ~15 seconds
– Good installation speed of <15 minutes
– Faster file copying speed, comparable with TeraCopy on Windows XP
– Good Snipping Tool, alike with Hypersnap I used in Windows XP
– Windows Firewall with Advanced Security (this was bundled with Windows Server 2008 initially)
— additional default 80 inbound rules iirc
— domains isolation with windows
— SSL app layer + IPsec network layer + 802.1x datalink = formidable
— if anybody's interested in WFAS, here's where they can go to, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd772715(WS.10).aspx

with windows7, the aesthetics and performance gain makes your computer much more appealing to use again, other than work. work is never work again! :):)
good night people, and you. and most of all you whom i honour dearly.
