HD Antenna with Over The Air Broadcast, Alpharetta, GA

, June 11, 2009

I repositioned the antenna rotator in my attic this past weekend. It’s got a full range of motion now instead of it hitting some attic joists, which is nice. I lost a couple of pounds in the 120-130 degree temps in my attic. Ah well, it’s all for the cause, eh? I then hooked up […]

MEPIS Linux Thunderbird EMail Blocked By Guarddog Firewall

, May 1, 2009

I had this problem solved several years ago … but of course I had forgotten it. I hope this helps someone else out. I have Comcast Internet which has blocked port 25 in sending email, and now allows port 50. That port can change any day now, and without warning, no thanks to spammers. I […]

Updating home machines to MEPIS 8.0

, March 29, 2009

I’m on machine #2 of my house-wide upgrade to MEPIS 8.0 which is my Son’s desktop. He’s got some network card that reports itself as a “davicom semiconductor” card and the upgrade didn’t like it. No network access. I poked around and found the following commands that when executed as “su” solved my problem. Note […]

, December 27, 2008

My 9 year old son walked into my office yesterday. He was carrying his prized Lego Star Wars AT-TE Walker box and he asked me if I could open the box for him. “Are you sure you want me to open that?” I say in a playful voice. “Yes, just open the box Dad!” says […]

Garmin Nuvi Map Update – A long hard road to map

, July 29, 2008

My wife surprised me with a GPS system for my birthday last month, and I love it.  Georgia is a difficult state to navigate around.  Each of the older roads are named for where they go.   This means that the roads end up changing names every 5 miles or less.  For example, Roswell Rd. is […]

Batch processing JPG images! Everyone MOGRIFY!

, July 14, 2008

I’ve been doing more web site designs lately. My clients will often give me hundreds of product images that I need to manipulate. I’ve got Thumbnailer on the Windows platform to do a lot of my processing. However, I’ve taken to adding borders to the images. Typically I’m adding a white inner border, with a […]
