Well since I’m a geek and I have nothing better to do, I thought it would be a good idea if I always make a note of cool software I’ve tried lately.
- Wildpackets Airopeek NX : Wireless network scanner
- Wildpackets Etherpeek NX : Ethernet packet sniffer
- CfosSpeed : Traffic Shaper
- Trillian 3.0 : IM
- Peter’s XML Editor
- DSL : Damn Small Linux (nice, only 50Megs, perfect for my old lappy, CDLIVE)
Things I’ve troubleshooted,
- Realtek RTL8180 Chipset : Drivers for Windows/Linux (ndiswrapper was the best solution), Airopeek NX drivers
- CfosSpeed: Omg, what a good program !!, but it’s NOT user friendly AT all
- Connected both laptops together thru 802.11b/ad-hoc to share the connection, used SMB to download the windows drivers to linux and run them from linux using the ndiswrapper.
- Opened the cheap 802.11b card and tried to install an external antenna.
Movies I’ve seen,
- The eternal sunshine of the spotless mind : Wierd, very weird and sorta good.
- La Gran aventura de Mortadelo y Filemón : From spanish cartoons, GOOD !
- One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest : 70’s movie about a bedlam, good, I bet it cause a lot of controversy back then.
- The Father of the pride
Games I’ve played,
- Half Life 2
- Need for Speed Underground
- World of Warcraft.
