Back from Skiing...

| 0 Comments
I've been away skiing for a couple of weeks in Davos and St. Anton, the snow was pretty good in both places but Davos won out as a more civilised skiing experience. St. Anton was just too busy for me, I'm getting fussy in my old age ;). The situation in St. Anton wasn't helped by the fact that when we arrived the off-piste was all a bit crunchy and skied out which meant that most people stayed on piste and then we had a big three day storm that kept the high lifts and links shut and meant that…

Bug in timer queue code

The report is completely correct and could result in a timer being scheduled out of sequence if it's scheduled around the point when GetTickCount() wraps.

Updated: 4th April - Fixed code now available here.…

After a few hickups and delays due to the Netgear takeover of Infrant it seems that the firmware is developing nicely again and the latest thing that I've discovered is that you can now develop and deploy your own code to the devices (if you're brave enough!). See here for details. Given that I'd need to purchase a third unit as a development and testing box…

And then there were three...

This morning a new Ready NAS NV+ unit arrived, so now I have three. I didn't have a sudden change of heart about buying a development box, the power supply in my office NAS died on Thursday afternoon and buying a new, bare, enclosure was the quickest way to get my existing disks back online. However, once I get the faulty until returned from repair I'll have a unit that I could develop on...…
