Re: Hibernation in Vista

Just as an FYI - Windows 7 has a power management scheme that is a hybrid of sleep and hibernation.

Re: New LED TV's

Does it use the Canon/Hitachi SED technology?

I was really looking forward to those sets, until they had the marketing squabble wihtin the consortium, and of course production difficulties with anything less than 40" screens.

Re: What is the difference between a bot and a spider?

Thanks for the explanation. I knew about the 'bots' as my web host has software that'll 'invite then in' to get your site listed, it also logs all the bot trawls, just hadn't heard of a spider before. This particular spider didn't have a name showing, it just said [spider], which is how the bots sho...

Re: C Compiler questions

Two other reasonably priced C compilers for Pic's are Wiz-C (which I use) and Mikroelectronika C. Mikro C comes with a lot of libraries and is easy to use. It's biggest drawback is it doesn't produce optimised code. Fed-C (Wiz-C) produces reasonably optimised code, but has quirks within its IDE main...

Re: Wireless weather station(Sept. 2007)

I am current trying to do the September 2007 wireless weather station project part 1. But every time I go to step four it never works. It can read whats on the modules, but it can't write anything to them. I know I have all the write parts as warned and instructed about in the article. But every ti...

Re: Help with RJ45 Network Connector

I'm going for:

Wrap one or two layers of sellotape around the plug.

Apply a thin strip of one side of Velcro to the top of the plug, probably the fluffy side.

Blue tak!

A small wedge of thin card.
