  1. You are correct. Since you don't have more than 1 IP address from your ISP, you have to use Network Address Translation (NAT) on you local network (in this case your wireless). The router will have it's own DHCP server (Dynamic Host Control Protocol), which is doing the nuts and bolts of handing out IP addresses to devices that connect.


    It's usually not advisable to turn of DHCP completely as it makes it a bit more annoying to configure your other devices. That being said, it looks like your router supports a feature called DHCP Reservation (most do these days). That will allow your router to only hand give a certain address to a certain device. For all intents your printer will have a static IP address. It will still be doing DHCP to get an address. Since it is working right now I wouldn't see that being a problem.


    http://cna1.upc.edu.cn/cisco/tools/WRT160N_ug.pdf Page 8 seems to cover what you need. You will need to figure out which device is your printer and make it a reserved client.


    Hope that helps.

  2. "Anomaly" might have been the wrong word. Though in the sense that what is expected is that time in = success out. Gladwell's conjecture is that there are other factors, which you are illuminating.


    I was drawing the analogy that the same sort of system could probably be at work as to why certain people born at certain times of year have certain traits.

  3. So the patterns that people notice with astrology seem to me to be a lot like other weird patterns that occur because of time of year of birth. They don't have anything to do with the alignment of the planets though. You experience certain things in certain seasons and these have an impact and colouring on your world view. The same way that NHL hockey players are more likely to be born in January. It's a statical anomaly of the systems that exist.

  4. At least you got a laugh...


    I don't really get this thread. I mean, it's not even like this is even near the worst thing I have ever heard at a show. In fact, this is probably the least offensive thing. If I didn't know to specifically listen for something I wouldn't have even heard it.

  5. So... I'm fairly sure that this page doesn't cost Anton that much to host. The setup has a few other things on it AFAIK. And there is the kicks from the adds.


    That said, I think that this place will probably stick around for a while.


    Also, I'm not sure it's fair to call out sodamntired in this particular instance... it's not like he's ever been asked to shoulder the cost and decried it on some "free speak" bullshit argument...

  6. I was pissed for a few minutes, and then I fixed it.


    Seriously dude, can you try to not spam? I know you feel better when there are more topics, but you don't need a whole thread to announce an outcome that 1) only a few people are going to care about, and 2) is directly related to a tread you started.
