No need to clean old prefetch data with CCLeaner

Categories: 

The freeware system utility CCLeaner has dramatically improved system responsiveness and overall performance for a couple of desktop PCs that I administer. I saw the option to clean "Old Prefetch data" under the Advanced menu. According to this link, there is never a need to clean Windows' prefetch data, and in fact, doing so will temporarily reduce system performance.

How to setup WDS on OpenWRT Kamikaze

Categories: 

If you want to use WDS on your WRT54g router, or other OpenWRT Kamikaze router, you MUST use the 2.4 broadcom version. If you do not see the WDS mode as an option in your wireless radio settings, double check that you are not running the 2.6 version of OpenWRT. The 2.6 version of OpenWRT Kamikaze is not yet compatible with WDS.

WMI VBScript to rename files

I needed to watch a directory for incoming files, then rename the files sequentially and move them. Here's how I did it.

 int i

for i = 1 to 10000
    strComputer = "."

    Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

    Set colFiles = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * From CIM_DataFile Where Path = '\\scripts\\' and Extension = 'pdf'")

HP Laserjet 4000 Error 13.2 paper jam

This error is easy to fix. There's probably no paper in the printer's paper path. The paper jam error 13.2 is caused because of the printer's clutch having too much friction. Follow the steps on the following link for each paper tray. This picture shows what the clutch looks like.

Firewall and Port Forwarding in X-Wrt 8.09

Categories: 

You might want to set up 'loopback forwarding' so that you can access your WAN IP as if you were not on the LAN. For instance, if you have a web server behind your X-Wrt router, and the incoming port 80 is forwarded from the router to your webserver. This allows computers on the WAN (that is, not on your local network) to view your website. However, if you try to view your website from behind the X-Wrt or OpenWrt router, you won't be able to see it. For this, you need loopback forwarding. This is because port 80 is forwarded only for WAN requests.
