I had to re-string a standard set of LED lights to work on 12 volts – it was a huge pain but it turned out pretty well.

Green LED Tree

Our new tree uses only 32 watts of power (checked with a Kill-A-Watt).
Based on some tests I did, it looks like a standard tree would use
well over 200 watts.

DSL Modem Firmware Hack

Nov 20 2008 Published by under Ramblings


After a few hours of tinkering (mainly going through my old stack of PC’s to find something that was old enough to actually work with the flash updating software) I can attest that the process below actually does work.

It has been mentioned in this forum that the MSN DSL1000 modem was a rebranded ACCTON, and that SMC also had a model based on the Accton model. My primary purpose in attempting this stems from the fact that my speakeasy dsl install kit doesn’t come until next week, and my roommate used to have msn broadband. I have successfully installed and configured the SMC Barricade 7401BRA firmware on the MSN DSL1000. This is a quick and dirty documentation of my method, and what you might encounter if you choose to make the switch.

Adobe Flash Unlikely on iPhone

Nov 18 2008 Published by under Ramblings

So sad… Apple is a love/hate thing for many…

Allowing Flash β€” which is a development platform of its own β€” would just be too dangerous for Apple, a company that enjoys exerting total dominance over its hardware and the software that runs on it. Flash has evolved from being a mere animation player into a multimedia platform capable of running applications of its own. That means Flash would open a new door for application developers to get their software onto the iPhone: Just code them in Flash and put them on a web page. In so doing, Flash would divert business from the App Store, as well as enable publishers to distribute music, videos and movies that could compete with the iTunes Store.
