A couple of weeks ago, I bought a Neuros OSD media player off eBay. The auction showed a “Developer Beta” unit. It showed up about a week ago, but I didn’t have time to play with it till tonight. After much pulling out of hair, I finally realized that what I had been sent was… Read more »

If anyone else is looking for an AKAI PDP4206EM Service Manual, here you go. I’m still looking for a PDF of the user manual.
I recently replaced my Linksys WRT54GL routers (running DD-WRT of course) with an ALIX 2c3 running pfSense. Not only is it faster, better-built, and has more features, it looks cool. Unfortunately, the cost for a refurbished 2c3, enclosure, and power supply was around $150. For those of you wanting to build your own tiny pfSense… Read more »
Thanks to a kind soul, I’ve been fiddling around with this since earlier this week: A Dell Mini 9, refurb from the Dell Outlet. 1024×600 screen, 16G solid-state disk, and an Atom N270 CPU. I’ve upgraded it to 2G of RAM, and just today installed the “US-International” keyboard to have a more “standard” layout. I… Read more »

The can of ammo I ordered from the CMP along with the Garand arrived yesterday. It’s older than I am (the -70 on the can and boxes is the year of production). Now I just need to find an outdoor range here in Houston that will let me shoot it. Looks like American Shooting Centers… Read more »
After a long (83 days) wait, my M1 Garand finally arrived this morning from the CMP. I ordered a “Field Grade” Springfield Armory rifle, and requested a WW2-vintage serial number if possible. What I received this morning exceeded my expectations. First, the serial number is 3,477,7xx. This puts the date of manufacture in February of… Read more »
Did some experiments with the new DIY clamp light / diffuser setup today and was pretty happy with the results. Will have a nicer arrangement on the dining room table sometime this week and can do more testing then.
Upgraded the disks on my home setup today. Went from a pair of Hitachi 500G Deskstar drives to a pair of Western Digital WD10EADS “Green” (power-saving, cooler-running) disks. One disk is primary external storage, while the other is the Time Machine backup disk for both my internal hard drive on the Mac Mini and the… Read more »
