At it again: Infocus LP280 Projector Lamp Hacking

I'm trying this again, Hacking an Infocus LP280 projector to use a high brightness LED array as a bulb instead of the ugly, expensive old xenon bulbs.

Re: A Linux Dilemma. Which distro to use?

I think basic computer knowledge should be a part of school, they do supposedly have a computer class in most schools nowadays, but they teach kids how to use word and excel and junk like that. word isn't gonna do you any good when your pc won't POST. or if your video card comes slightly out of the ...

Re: DD-WRT: Extending Wifi Range as a Repeater

1. Some of this must vary based on the router / build you are using. My atheros router has client mode but no repeater mode (repeater might be called client-bridge?).

A Linux Dilemma. Which distro to use?

So recently I've been using linux mint. it works really nice, its easy to deal with, updates are quick, and its pretty snappy as far as everything goes. I have had issues with the kernel, and some of their repos don't have very up to date stuff, which can be problematic for myself. I like the cinnam...

Re: DD-WRT: Usb Hard Drive as Network Attached Storage (NAS)
