Do NOT suffer with internet facing MoCA FIOS CPE!!  FIOS **DOES** function flawlessly internet over  ethernet from ONT, then keep evil MoCA CPE behind ethernet gear of YOUR choosing.  This will NOT break guide or vod.  This will circumvent SIP-rape of westell’s poorly designed (undisable-able sip alg)

netgear facetiously compares EVA9150 to xbox360 – does not bother comparing to XBMC

Filed under: gadget,Hardwares — Sagacious Himself @ 6:47 pm

EVA9150 nearly a match for XBMC on xbox360

http://netgear.com/Products/Entertainment/DigitalMediaPlayers/EVA9150.aspx

Cute chart, netgear, but I did not buy my xbox360 for its native features.  I bought it to use XBMC for my media on MY terms and it happens to play games.  Having DRM is a sale killer.

The sata drive bay is a nice touch, though when combined with docking station. It natively can take advantage of my 802.11a.

If freedom to tinker is mostly meaningless to you (making you mostly feckless) then EVA9150 migth be a match for you… as long as you’re fine with crippled support for matroska d’oh… or you aren’t bothered by a whole host of other problems that are sure to be “addressed” in classic netgear style (ignore them to death): http://forum1.netgear.com/forumdisplay.php?f=99

gmail inserting images: now iTards, luddites, and other imbeciles can send inline images too

Filed under: DARPA — Sagacious Himself @ 11:00 am

gmail co-enables cretins to insert images in email compose pane with button — but will they know where to locate the image file on their computer or know what a URL is?

Because select, copy, paste was FAR TOO CHALLENGING gmail now has a labs offering to simplify the originally easy process.  yay?

Maybe they’ll have a lab to create a ‘compose email’ button next woo

archos better than cowon? it would seem so

Filed under: gadget,Hardwares,PMP — Sagacious Himself @ 5:23 pm

cowon stagnation?  fr*nch archos to the rescue?

cowon america “support” is abysmal at best.  Inconvenient fine grain functionality questions go unanswered in their support forums and emails get the godaddy run around.  While I have not yet purchased an archos which has much to do with them being Fr*nch Cowon is sitting on their innovation hands.

cowon needs an HD media output option.  SD on my HD hardware is not acceptable.  Deviation from reference design?  Doesn’t seem to happen with cowon ‘engineers’.  Archos has the korean upselling mentality mastered ironically: pay for the hardware and pay to unlock features one at a time with software patches.

My Cowon Q5W GPS adventure was other than delightful.  I need FLAC playback with an intelligently designed GUI that provides useful information and easy control.  I need HD video out.  I am not a fan of proprietary connectors. I want to be able to wirelessly mount my CFS shares to *stream* media.  Bluetooth media broadcast to my car is not asking much.

Stay tuned for adventures in archos land…

Google FX: banishing wicked-ia from results

Filed under: DARPA — Sagacious Himself @ 11:07 pm

banish wiki*dia from google FX user script

open the user script in your favority non-notepade, non-wordpad text editor (like vi)

Find the one instance of  “wikiPanel();” around line 2982 and comment it out to banish evil from the right panel thusly:

// wikiPanel();

to remove the wicked-ia linkage from the extra engine list atop the page nullify the wiki*dia from the array around line 303:

	Wiki      :['en.wikipedia.org'      ,'/wiki/Special:Search?go=go&search='	],

this will also prevent google fx from spawning a search tab with wiki*dia results

090406-sagacious-himself-no-wicked-ia-in-google-fx-user-script

ahhh no more wiki*dia

to remove wicked-ia from search results use one of these fine user scripts

google search filter plus
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/39996

or

google noise reduction
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/44418

^ also fantastic for removing junk sites.  the former has excellent wild card support

know someone with brain cancer

The foreign gene, CD gene, was correctly inserted into pGEX-1LambdaT plasmid and transferred into Bifidobacterium infantis. CD/5-FC suicide gene therapy system mediated by Bifidobacterium infantis demonstrated a good antitumor effect on melanoma in vitro and in vivo.
