I hived off 20GB to install Linux on mine - so I can get actual work done.Wolfie wrote:Cheers birdman - I've yet to pick up an Asus, but we've just got upgraded laptops via work and I don't have the privs to install Topfield applications any more
Last summer I was sitting in the pub waiting to collect my daughter and used Linux to connect to work. 1min to connect, 10mins of heavy work, problem fixed. So I thought I'd let people know the problem was fixed, which entailed rebooting into Windows, as we had a mail system that required it. That started at 20:20. It took 15 mins to get logged in (disk active on the laptop for all of the time). Then I started the mail client. And at 20:55 I had to text my daughter to say I would be late, as the client was still starting up. It managed it at 20:58 and I sent the message in ~40s. So 40mins of Windows time for 40s of work. And these are called "Productivity Suites". Should be reported to the ASA.
I did all of the configuring of mine using the Web GUI.and also wrote:Would I be right in thinking that changing the IP address to fit in with my network would be an easy thing? I use a Netgear DG834PN adsl modem/router and I'm happy messing about with IP stuff on there, so I don't think it'll be too much of a challenge unless it involves hours playing with vi!
