still alive [Feb. 28th, 2005|04:29 pm]

No net access at home yet. Guess the DSL loop's installed as of today, but I don't have the modem yet? I have a few DSL modems... I should try some and see if it's live already. In any case, my office and the wiring at home is far from done. I bought a spool of white cat-5 and white nail-in clippy things at Home Depot the other day. It'll eventually be wired.

Look what I saw on 101: BLOGGER car. Anybody know what dork that is? He had dark hair and a short beard.

My house in Oregon is pretty much sold. Had like 7 offers within a day or two of putting it on the market. Just paperwork at this point I think.

The bike ride to work is nice and easy. Much better than paying for parking.

Nothing else to report.

What's the difference between Cat5e and Cat6 ?

and don't say it's +1-e :P

Of course not. It'd be (6/5e).

(and, in case you wanted a real answer, a quick overview of catN specs)

GIGABIT should be Brad's license plate.

Maybe on his bike.

I was thinking about that cable run on the way home. Ive seen in magazines this clear putty type stuff that they use in museums to stick vases and stuff onto their pedistals. I was thinking rather than nail something in, find some of that gunk and just stick it ever 2 feet or so in the corner of your hallway (garage you can use the nail-in thingys).. That way you can shove it way into the corners out of sight.

What's cat5e rated for 350mbit?

The cost to go from cat5 (not e) to cat6 is only ~20% more. Firewire 400 and 800 already well exceed cat5e speeds. (My home network is 100mbit but the windows box I use to sync my ipod grabs the music via a samba share. In any case I'm still amused that my 100mbit network is the bottleneck in syncing the ipod.)

i was inspired and bored, and decided to do some digging which turned up this page, which skillfully avoids saying who owns the plate.  But, people say (in the comments) here and here that it's owned by Joel Slovacek, who I think is on the blogger.com team.

google can be scary sometimes.

Look at the first hit for http://www.google.com/search?q=blogger+license+plate (the answer is in the comments).
