I just had to reload a Dell inspiron mini 10v and boy is there ever a odd issue with the 1510 wireless. As pointed out on dell’s fourms:

Well it seems for me the fix was to :
1. Click on Start > Run and in the Open: field enter compmgmt.msc, then click on the OK button.
2. Click on Device Manager .
3. In the right pain select Network Devices.
4. Right click on Dell wireless 1510 Wireless-N WLAN Mini-Card.
5. Select Properties.
6. The Properties dialog box should appear.
7. Click on the Advanced tab.
8. Select  AP Compatibility Mode and change value to Broader Compatibility
9. Select IBSS Mode and change value to 802.11 a/b/g/n Auto
10. Click OK button

You should now be able to connect to access points on channels other than 6.

What’s really wrong with the economic recovery?

I think when a company proposes or actually takes the action of
laying off 5 – 10% or more of their workers, and describes that action
as an essential element to “save” the company or to be more “cost
effective”, then the person who makes that decision needs to include
themselves in the layoff, which would also then void golden parachutes.

Maybe the adage what’s good for the goose in good for the gander
would impact company decision makers to be better planners and
executives or at least more creative in developing alternative
strategies for recovery; like making or selling products of value that
don’t include lead paint, or cleaning up food processing and serving so
customers don’t die from salmonella, or making factories and stores
accessible for the disabled, or producing more fuel efficient cars that
capture the consumers imagination, or making decisions that add value to
a company rather than artificially pumping up their stock price, or by
just simply doing what is descent and honorable.

Our economy has always been based on the principle of supply and
demand. That is just not true today. Therefore the solution is not in
supply and demand answers. We are in a global economy where hurting the
workers for the sake of gluttonous “industry giants”, not excluding
Mobil Oil or Shell Oil and the like, will destroy all that we have come
to count on as the “American Way”.

HijackThis has been hijacked???

Looks like someone forgot to pay the hosting bill. www.merijn.org Is now a ad FARM GODADDY PARK PAGE. Godaddy is going to make a bundle off this goofup!! But I wonder if merijn/TrendMicro just forgot to pay the bill or deleted it? What ever the case I hope it’s fixed soon as thousands of webpages link to that address andso does wikipedia.org . So I hope it is just a accident and not permanent.
