Moving on…

No Comments

It’s been a hectic few days for me: I was just about to leave my currentemployer for a major ICT service contractor (already having signed my newcontract) when I was offered the position I’ve wanted ever since I graduated.

As of January, I’ll no longer be the stressed out and overworked servicetechnician but the stressed and worked out web developer! Yeah.

Seriously, I’ll no longer be fixing broken websites, taking customers inquiries about what they did wrong in their CMS etc. What a relief!

From January onwards, I’ll be joining the Marketing-Communications team at Tam Tam. There I’ll be working on new and enterprising website projects. Building websites with Microsoft Office SharePoint Services 2007, ASP.NET 2.0 and the like. I can’t wait.

And as I grow from code hacker to code builder to who-knows-what, I intend to blog more often and more in depth as I get to grips with this new technology and programming in general.

Watch this space!

Too many connections on Linksys router

No Comments

The last couple of weeks, I’ve been having major issues with my broadband router.

My Linksys WRT54G router with the excellent DD-WRT opensource firmware just kept on crashing and stifling my internet connections.

After perusing the various newgroups, I found the answer. It turns out that many routers tend to go haywire when the MTU is not set correctly. It turns out that the auto setting just doesn’t work correctly.
I then followed Linksys’ advice on finding the right MTU setting an entered this into the router.

I no longer have 400 of 500 connections on my router anymore!

New SPAM gets abstract

I always liked ASCII-art, and it seems that this spammer was inspired by it too:

New Spam

Anything to get exposure for the famous SPAM-drugs, I suppose.
