If you have an image defect on a Dell 2335dn that shows as a faint horizontal line exactly every 3 inches then it’s most likely the toner cartridge.

Had this happen and was reluctant to purchase a new toner cartridge just to find out it was one of the other rollers. Contacted Dell (at present phone only, no chat available) and they were gracious enough to ship me a replacement toner cartridge.

Reference: CR963 also for 2355dn

Boxee is great! Make your own Boxee

Have it running on a:

HP d530 – P4 w/ 768MB RAM / 40GB HD / ATI Radeon 9200 PCI 256MB

Windows XP Professional SP3

This is actually below requirements as I’m only at version 1.3 with OpenGL

iPhone app is my remote

Redirect like you would with the ‘more’ command


Old way:

dir *.exe > exes.txt

notepad exes.txt



New way:

dir *.exe | clip

1) You must login as a root user, if not root user then switch to root user using following command:


$ su –


2) Create the directory i.e. mount point:


# mkdir -p /mnt/disk


3) Use mount command as follows to mount iso file called disk1.iso:


# mount -o loop disk1.iso /mnt/disk


4) Change directory to list files stored inside an ISO image:


# cd /mnt/disk

# ls -l

Had a situation where I needed to connect via SonicWall VPN before logging on to Windows
In my experience the VPN client replaces the normal GINA so that you can authenticate using a VPN connection.

To sum it up…

1. Create a batch file with the following information
@echo off
"C:\Program Files\SonicWALL\SonicWALL Global VPN Client\swgvpnclient.exe" /E YOUR CONNECTION NAME

2. Launch “gpedit.msc” and add the batch file you created to the Startup scripts
3. Restart the computer
4. Wait until the Sonicwall Client launches which will give an error since the connection is not installed under the system account
5. Install the connection and make sure it’s named the same as specified
6. Don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to just enable the connection and proceed but I restarted again anyway
7. If you so choose remove the batch file from the Startup scripts GP entry

Now in my instance I wanted to logon for the first time which of course requires a connection to the domain in question. (no cached profile)
After I logged on it seemed to hang at “Applying computer settings…”
Just wait a bit. It will eventually go through.

This is a great reference for those that support users that have Linksys routers, access points or one of Linksys’s other managed devices

This site can show you a copy of the interface that is built-in to one of Linksys’s devices. You can’t actually do anything with any changes made but you can see what options are available

I just wish I had something like this for the times I wanted to show someone the changes they need to make.
