Computer Lab

Saturday, February 7th, 2015


Here is a picture of my computer lab that I put together at my house this week. I have a TP-Link WR700N wireless travel router set up in client mode. I have an Ethernet cable running from it into a Dell PowerConnect 2216 switch to provide an internet connection to the three computers on the table. The computer on the far left is a Dell Dimension 4400 and it’s running Windows Embedded POSReady 2009. The computer in the middle is a HP Compaq dc5100 small form factor computer and it also has Windows Embedded POSReady 2009 installed on it. The computer on the far right is the one that I am writing this blog post from and it has Windows 7 Professional installed on it. Just a last note: the POS in POSReady doesn’t mean what you think it does, it’s basically a special version of Windows XP made for computerized cash registers. Hope you enjoy reading about my computer lab.

Cool Trick

Old School iPod hacking

This is a cool trick you can do with an old unused iPod laying around. You just simply replace the iPod hard drive with a Compact Flash memory card. You then put the memory card adapter in the iPod and you can install Apple’s firmware for the device or a custom firmware called “Rockbox”. Rockbox allows you to add several cool games to your ancient Apple iPod.
