  1. I've had it running on my laptop for several weeks now. It does run quite a bit faster, especially the file transfers.
  2. Stopped into the local Apple store last night and checked OS X out. Very nice! Was tempted to get an iMac, but with the wife and kids next door, thought better of it. Wife said she wanted an iPhone, so I got her a brochure .Over all, being a Windows user, I'm pretty impressed and looks like I'm gonna have figure out how to sneak a Mac into my network. Did get one of the freebie black OS X T-shirts, though
  3. Actually, I meant the picture in the lower left corner. It is of Norman Wisdom, one of my favorite comedians.
  4. Agreed. Here's what they say about it:
  5. Check out the IPv4 address countdown: http://www.ipv6forum.com/. Thats just over 3 years at the current rate. Test to see if your ISP is set to use IPv6 at http://www.ipv6forum.com/test_ipv6.php.
  6. Job = Systems Admin ( Market Data, Sun, Unix.. blah blah blah). Full time father of 2 girls (1 is 3 1/2, the other is 17 going on 25! The Gray hairs are popping out as I type). Ambition = To be filthy RICH and appear on "Life Styles of the Rich and Famous".
  7. Here's mine: 10 Bonus points for Roco if he can ID the celebrity in the IE window.
  8. It's not really testing your connection speed. It's testing your router and if it supports newer technologies.
  9. Test your Vista Internet Connection with the Internet Connectivity Evaluation Tool http://www.microsoft.com/windows/using/tools/igd/default.mspx. Ran mine through my D-Link DIR-655, wihich supports all of the tested technologies.

  11. Just found out that D-Link now offers a Yahoo Widget for use with the DIR-655, which I picked up last week. http://www.dlink.com/products/DIR-655/yahoo-widgets/# I am quickly becoming a D-Link convert, as I used to like Netgear products. It looks like D-Link caters to it's customer base more so than Netgear. Here is a screenshot of the widget: Also looks like there are some nice widgets from Yahoo, more so than the standard Vista Sidebar Gadgets.
  12. Looks very nice. I don't know if I'd want to sit in front of it looking at the neat display all the time, but I'm sure it will be the start of some good competition for other manufacturers.
