Wireless access point

My wireless access point at home is actually a Realtek 2500 wireless card on my server. I use my server as the place to put access policies and as a broker for all traffic (my public IP address is also on it, instead of on the modem in front of it).

Getting USB to boot

Most things just seem to work on my new Lenovo Thinkpad E145 laptop - but, as always, some things just do not work out of the box. Problems with WIFI are almost expected, but not being able to boot from USB is plain weird.

Replacing a disk

About a year ago, I replaced the hard disk in my laptop by a solid state disk. As expected, the difference was remarkable: even though the laptop still had the same relatively slow processor, it felt a lot snappier. Starting up and shutting down only took ten, fifteen seconds, instead of more than a minute, for example. A very nice upgrade.

A new laptop

I have been a content user of the Asus EEE series up until now. My latest laptop was a Asus EEE 1015PE. I am a heavy user, though - not in the sense that I run very heavy processes on it (it is not really suited for that), but in the sense that I carry it almost always with me and that it is multiple hours a day in use. You can clearly see that: my old laptop was battered and has had multiple repairs (these last months, I opened it up at least every fortnight - and it was clearly not made to suffer such indignities). Minor issues began to compound, until I really had no choice.
