Entertainment weekly.. or what the fuck I’ve done in the last two days.

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.

Software,

  • 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.

TV series,

  • The Father of the pride

Games I’ve played,

  • Half Life 2
  • Need for Speed Underground
  • World of Warcraft.
