Well well well...

I think we geekzone bloggers are being spoilt with all the new features and treats by Mauricio.

We asked, he provides... if only we can ask for money and be given! LOL...


Anyway, so today onward, we are spoilt with blog feature like "tag" where each tag will link to Technorati. So you have a general category for your blog post, and the relevant tags to associate with the blog post. Neat eh?!

Then we asked, "Can we have buzz clou (read the entire post)...



Synergy at work!

, posted: 2-Aug-2006 15:27

I have set up both my work laptop and my personal laptop to use synergy so I don't have to switch back and forth betwen both laptops.

Using a cheap USB 2.0 Network cable (HX8177) which I got from Dick Smith Electronic for $38, installed the software on both laptops to use Virtual Network set up. Give them both a non-routable IP addresses and set up Synergy.

The set up is quick and easy and no hard configuration. The only hiccup I had was the screen and link configuratio (read the entire post)...



VPN from home...

As mentioned yesterday in my blog, I got the "go ahead" from work to get VPN connection to work from home with my work laptop! YAY!

But it isn't going as planned, as I can't get the Cisco System VPN Client to get through my router... Any idea? (read the entire post)...

Harvey Norman & HP Customer Service

, posted: 28-Jul-2006 10:36

I think it is about time I should do a follow up to my previous episode regarding my HP f2105 21" LCD monitor's power switch problem [Press to power off].

So, we dropped off our monitor on Sunday 23rd July and told the Harvey Norman warranty service guy that we would want our LCD power button repaired. The guy said they don't know if that will be covered by our first year manufacturer's warranty, and the fact that we were sold with additional 4 years extended warranty too.

15 minutes: Nokia N91

, posted: 25-Jul-2006 19:24

Just today when I was at Vodafone outlet at Westfield Riccarton Mall (east side). The salesperson (Brad) is very friendly and determined to find an answer to my question. "Does it vibrate?"... Ever since the release of Nokia N90, I have been very curious as to why Nokia would remove the vibration alert. As I use vibration alert all the time now, my Imate Smartphone2 has never been on ring-alert for months now. Simply because I choose to be discreet and don't want my ringtone to disturb my su (read the entire post)...



Blog title renamed...

Okay... so I told a fib about how I don't like blogging... I still don't like blogging but I found myself blogging my rant, my view and my life *gulp* on Geekzone Blog.

So then, I sat back and looked at the bigger picture... and thought about giving my blog a better name other than "GZCSS", I mean, what the heck is "GZCSS"???... so from today onward, I decided to join a big world of blogging, and officially renamed my blog to "Tech & Chips Takeaway".

Enjoy your stay at my b (read the entire post)...



15 minutes: Sony VGN-UX17GP

, posted: 24-Jul-2006 14:25

Guess what? Well I guess most of you that are reading this would have figured that out easily.

I have spent a good portion of my lunch break on trying out Sony's VGN-UX17GP which is now currently available in your local Sony Centre. It is priced at NZ$2999.95 (Pricey).

I like a few things about it, and dislike a few things about it... have some reserved thoughts about it.

The overview:

Well, it has a good holding design. It feels solid and I can grip i (read the entire post)...
