Belkin F6D4630-4 unable to change password on mac safari/firefix

Now I recently switched over from pc to mac for the major part of the stuff I do.  But last night my ADSL router crapped out (during a lightning storm) and I had to get a new one..

Having no place to read reviews of ADSL modems (zomg I broke teh internets) so I went to the closest store the next morning to buy a new one… I bought a belkin…

Now appearantly someone had their head up their arse while quality checking this.. because the password change form didn’t work in Firefox or Safari. So in the end I had to start my windows machine and use IE7 to change password…

damnit Belkin!

The internets are broken..What now?

XB fudged it up… so here I am finally writing something on my completely neglected ‘blog’. Luckely my trusty iphone is here to save me while i wait for the connection to be restored.

It got me thinking though. Is there a really secure way of connecting to home? I mean when I add the ip for the wireless of my phone to the hosts.allow or iptables I will open up the window for all kinds of nastyness from that network.

Well I guess there is no other option than to either wait till XB fixes it or go home and work from home for the rest of the day….

Using shortner 2 based sites in your application or site

Shortner has been around for a while but always been a pet project of me. With me doing the coding ,hosting and maintenance on it I get little time to actually write about shortner :)  Since the release of shortner 2 I’ve been gathering new ideas for features and optimisations for the codebase. But that time is over :) time to write something about shortner and get the api out there for people to use.

Shortner 2

It has been up for a week now … I can’t wait to code an android app for it … Already made an Air app for it.

I think I need to put up some sort of application download site for all my projects…. already have too many of em…

Google I/O 2009 / San francisco trip

Google IO 2009

img_18081First of all, Google I/O 2009 was awesome. First day during the keynote they tell us we get an android phone ! And the second day they announce Wave. (Somehow I feel like combining the two :) ) .I already had an android phone but since i’m a gadget nut I welcome all new toys :D… The sessions were cool.. I went to several sessions on Android , Opensocial and Google Web Toolkit. I just updated my eclipse to the latest version and updated the sdk and got my first hello world android app to work :) now to build that shortner app ! And maybe some others. I’m also looking forward to the invite to wave… That has to be something else.. I’m eager to show it off at work … And I really feel like writing my own implementation. I loved that console version :D

Hotel Palomar

Like last year this hotel rawks.. I’ve been in a few hotels by now and I really like this hotel for its great rooms. Not the biggest .. but definatly the best kept…. The only bad thing is we ordered a room at the zen garden but got a room looking into offices … which is not really ” zen”

I love this city. Allthough it is a bit littered with all these homeless people its pretty easy to get around. If you watch where you step.  We took a tour of the bay and underneath the golden gate brige and back around alcatraz.

The weather here is like Holland .. The difference is though that the weather here changes on which altitude and which part of the city you are. Ocean climates rock!

Right there is a picture of the trans american piramid. Which is a pretty nice view  from up that hill.

I will post some more in depth reviews of the phone (Google ION) later
