The Hard Drive Speaker

Hard drive internalsok, so what happens when a nerd has a dead hard drive and too much free time in school? simple -- he makes a speaker out of it!

Expect a break in posts.

on Friday, me and my friend decided to ride our bikes down to McDonalds... we stopped at a crosswalk, but the light was not changing fast enough, so he rode across to the median. there was heavy traffic in the other two lains, so he decided to ride back, but a van parked in the tun lain, blocking his view of traffic (and the traffics view of him)
he puched off to come back over to where i was without checking for oncoming traffic, and rode right out in front of a van. the van had no time to break, and hit him going full speed (about 45 mph). he was not wearing a helmet.
that's that a skull does to a windshield in a 45 MPH collision.

wifi anyone?

when people look at wireless routers they sometimes ask linksys or d-link, wireless b, g or n... but have you ever asked yourself what the TX output wattage is? how many external antennas you can hook up, or how far you can send a 2.4ghz signal without an external amplifier?

well, thats what i think of every day..... i need rage, range is the name of the game, and im here to win it.
when you boil it all down, most routers are the same..... other than the number of antennas, however... most routers now have internal antennas (ill cover that later)... so usually u can only find routers with 2 external antennas. thus, its all about the antennas!

18 dBi tx antenna (top) and a 13dBi rx antenna (bottom)

SSH and you #2 - doing it right.

ok, so if you followed my previous tutorial with freeSSHd, you might have noticed some pesky errors....
when i wrote that, i was testing everything on a LAN network, and it all seemed to go well.... but i recently started using it at college and i was baffled to see an error every 2 minutes or so.

in this tutorial, we will talk about how to set up winSSHd.... as the name implies, it is win (well, its for windows).  some of this tutorial will be the same as the last, however the majority of it involving hosting has changed.
