However, this doesn't necessarily mean that you'll be able to get BT Infinity at your property"
So seems like they are just dangling the carrot at the moment. I've signed up for notification of when it's available. Fell sorry for my mother in law who only lives about 200m from the exchange which means she's more than likely directly cabled to the exchange meaning she doesn't have a street cabinet and thus won't be able to get the FTTC service.
Now i've been fortunate enough to have previously opened a fair few of these using the widely published method of having the router upside down with the back towards you and pushing the the front two feet away from you. Now on more than one occasion I've managed to break or bend plastic and clips so came up with my own way of doing it and not had any breakages yet.
Place the router on it's side on a flat surface and put the palm of your hand and thumb in between the the legs and gently push until a small gap is created between the blue facia and black casing.
Next insert a small flat head screwdriver between the facia and body
Next gently move the handle of the screwdriver towards the rear of the router which will open the gap all the way down
Then simply 'unhinge' the facia away from the body
So after modding a WRT54GL for a job at work I decided that I would do the same for my own one but add as many hacks as I can. This is bit of a nostalgia trip for me as I still have some linksys routers from about 10 years and remember liking them then. They've proved popular in the community as being very hackable due to running linux.
I don’t smegging believe it i’ve just had confirmation that my pi has been
shipped by farnell. Damn them and saying 3 weeks.
Yeah you've guessed it, after realising I couldn't wait another 3/4 weeks for my pi I've bought a new one off ebay ha.
Well i’ve decided that I must have one so just this minute placed my order. Shame about the 3 week wait from farnell but it will give me time to research it.
I’m currently paying for 50gb of remote storage but the trouble is I need to backup too much data offsite ie in excess of 500gb to make this facility financially viable. I’ve been searching for a suitable box that I can place at a friends house so I can backup my files to there. I have 2 spare 500gb sata drives so looked at NAS enclosures, I drilled it down to a D-Link DNS-323 and a Thecus 2100 both of which have low operating costs in terms of power consumption something which is important as my friend is hosting it for free. After spending some time looking at specs I’ve decided on the Thecus. It has a faster CPU 600mhz, upgradable memory, 3 USB ports and 2 gigabit network ports. The plan is to run Debian 6.0 on it.
I’m currently watching 2 on fleabay so will hopefully nab one of those.
