Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

I stand corrected about the (Syslink?) WiFi card shipped with the Silver Yogi. I disabled it and never had a need to use it so that my mind was thinking no rf NIC card. The presence of that card would explain how you can see your neighbor's networks. When I suggested putting the repeater inside your...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

It took quite a few years of working with engineers to figure out some of the basics of how a business is run. There is a constant mistrust (for lack of a better word) between marketing, engineering, and accounting. Then there are the executives who think all three are stupid idiots. While there was...

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

Going to Cat 6 cable would reduce crosstalk and not degrade your signal over a long length of wire. Cat 5 cables are just as good for most applications. I think you are onto something with the theory of aluminum walls dampening your WiFi signals. The solution would be to place the repeater inside yo...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

I worked with engineers nearly all my professional life. There is a core group that is burdened with the design of a product and all it's implications. Once the design is accepted, read that to mean given a budget, no more design effort is applied. It's all tweaking and patching after that. I'm gues...

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

USB hubs may not need drivers, but most likely in your case the Windows OS can't tell exactly what hardware is connected. The problem is in the USB firmware/software on the motherboard, or the hub itself giving a false ID. It's akin to Linux looking for a printer on the bus and finding it but cannot...

I've seen that cartoon in reference to the cross continent railway where tracks started to be laid at each coast. When the met in the middle ... your drawing shows what happened. LOL

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

If' you are serious about the Konica products, a call to their PR/advertising people will get you all the information you want, and more. The AIO printers are amazing machines. I'm sure they all function pretty much the same way. My HP doesn't need a computer either. In fact it has it's own web serv...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

I've seen a few 'spaghetti bowl' interchanges around Chicago, but none of them are 12 stories high. That's an amazing feat of engineering, particularly for the traffic engineer.

Wired's Picture of the Week

To a harried motorist, the Huangjuewan flyover is a vision of hell, a mishmash of lanes and ramps that go in eight in directions. I thought this could only happen in America.

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

Short term memory loss is a bitch. I can empathize with you on that. I entered the electronics industry doing component level trouble shooting at the end of a production line. It was quite a challenge at first but after fixing a few thousand boards it was easy enough to pick out the defective compon...

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

You are working in a niche market which is both good and bad. The good news is that you are the sole supplier for what you make. The bad news is that the market is shrinking. The numbers you cite for sales increases due to labeling are remarkable. I can understand why so much money is put into marke...

I am totally not familiar with dye sublimation printing. I thought I was doing good to have a vague understanding of lithography, but sublimation printing is something I have not heard of until now.

Re: Paint Remover

I learned a lot from my dad who was a decent carpenter. Using that as a reference, it makes no sense to me that IKEA furniture can be held together with those screwy cam fittings thingies. My first time assembling IKEA furniture was filled with fear and trepidation because I could not believe it wou...

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

I can understand how it would be a tough call. In my case I'd want the highest quality and the most reliable printer I could afford. Not being in a business situation, I settled for HP instead.

Re: Paint Remover

Those Swedes sure have some interesting ideas about furniture. As yo point out, they are not always practical. I don't know about a kitchen set up, but my office in my previous house was all IKEA. I could not bring it with and miss it dearly. It was made to be enjoyed as well as being functional.
