Gobi7: Day 15

Not much to report on as far as changes. I have been using this for all my work access now for 13 days and counting. The WIFI setup and the wired are great, I am able to move through the config menus to load the settings needed based on location, love it with an external three button mouse (can't figure out the key combo for highlight/paste (middle mouse button)), used both card and non card sessions, battery life is fair but wish there was more of an indicator of life (heard this requires a hardware change that may be out on the next version), and wished it was a high resolution and more crisp display.

The wait is killing me

I am totally waiting for the FedEx truck to get there and the wait is killing me. I mentioned that I will be testing out a Gobi7 for the next 90 days. It is on the FedEx trunk for delivery... don't they know they should have came here first today? If interested keep subscribed for my reactions, usage, likes, dislikes... honest feelings about the Gobi7 over the next 90 days.

SR@H goes wireless

After talking to enough people or maybe the right people I am going to be testing out a Gobi7 here at home and where I roam as my thin client remote connectivity solution. Since the Gobi7 can be configured to work with Sun's Sun Ray @ Home program I will be all set up. The unit should get here in the next few days and then I have 90 days to put it though it's paces. I mentioned to the folks sending my out the loaner that I would blog about my experiences in using it so stay tuned for updates. Who knows, I might start being as "thin" as someone else we all know.

1600x1200

So as I mentioned I have the new SR2 up and running but was having some resolution issues. I was noticing that the SR2 was set to the correct setting but my desktop env was still showing up as 1920x1200 so I ended up with scrolling. Well after a little bit of looking and a chance keystroke using "utxconfig -r 1600x1200" to set the X-resolution instead of auto it all worked out. Logged out of my window manager, logged back in and we are all in sync at 1600x1200... still 384000 pixel short... for now until I get use to the new resolution.

SunRay@Home back up... and soon upgraded

The SunRay@Home has been down for a while for me on my own account.  My old home router kicked the bucket and I finally got around to replacing it last night.  Not that I have been without home internet service, just wireless only since the Airport Express that I also have does not have any wired port connections on it for the SR@H setup.  Now the SR@H is back up and soon to be upgraded from a SR 1g to a SR 2.
