Walking the wireless path

Posted 12-26-2008 at 10:47 AM by ctroyer

I set the goal for myself of getting the wireless card working on my Thinkpad 600. Yes, it's an antique, but that's part of the charm. No native support seems to be available for my Buffalo G54 card, so I'm going the ndiswrapper route. (I'm no Free Software zealot - I'm just a cheap bastard.) Thus far, I've managed to get the ndiswrapper software to claim that it has installed the driver - but the hardware is not yet recognized. So now I'm researching how to get the card recognized.

It's in the Air.

Posted 12-23-2008 at 06:42 PM by Hitboxx

Bonjour,

I just tried Adobe's put-the-web-on-your-desktop thing called Air and it's pretty neat. It is similar to those widgets, gadgets,..etc but on a grandeur scale. Though still in the infancy as far as application availability is concerned, nonetheless it is a neat platform and it works.
