Familia

Posted 04-04-2011 at 12:13 PM by peonuser

Been spending a lot of time getting family recipes recorded for my family. Quite a few of them are "how to" basics as for doing things from scratch. We will not use anything from a box unless we have to. At least I can leave the family something money can not buy.

Been still having a challenge using the joystick port to acquire data. I will figure it out yet.

Made a solder-less usb extender using telephone wall adapters.

The cure to your wireless woes. :)

If you are like me, new to linux (October 2010) and have had the multiple headaches getting wireless up and running in Linux, have I got a gem for you. After trying multiple USB wifi receivers and failing to get them up and running I was recently introduced by a fellow penguin to the Alfa 1000mW 1W 802.11b/g USB Wireless WiFi Network Adapter
I'm certain that just about every distro out right now has the driver for this thing built in. (rtl8187)

Hi all, this is my first entry to this blog. I have been member of LQ for a while, I referred to this whenever I had a doubt regarding , of course, Linux installed in my system.
