Hybrid Cab on Mulberry Street

Hybrid cab, originally uploaded by Noah Sussman.

This is the first hybrid cab I have seen in the city. I think it was a Nissan but I’m bad with make-and-models.

Macbook vs. WRT54G wireless router

Monday, February 18th, 2008

Today I brought my Macbook to my mom’s house for the first time. Like me, she has a Linksys wireless router, but unlike me she is connected to the internet via Verizon DSL. Now, her Windows PC and laptop connect to the network through the router automatically (there’s no wi-fi password since this is northern Vermont and the next house is a mile away).

The Macbook likewise connected instantly to the wi-fi network, but couldn’t see the internet. When I’d try to ping a Web address, I just got “no route to host.” Very sad.

Today I set up Synergy, which is quite bad-ass :)
I set it up for my 2 macs and PC at work.

Because I now travel, and demonstrate programming strategies for front-end Web, I had to have a truly portable programming environment ;-)


Configuring a Linksys WRT54G router to work with a Westell 6100 modem for Verizon DSL

Friday, November 24th, 2006

Tonight I’ve been having a bitch of a time configuring a Linksys WRT54G router to work with a Westell 6100 modem for Verizon DSL. After an hour or more of bushwhacking through help forums, I was lucky enough to run across this post in this thread at Broadband Reports. I made a couple of changes to the WRT54G’s “Basic Setup” screen, and suddenly everything was fine!
