So we’re on the E45 in Germany towards Nürnberg. From there we will drive to München and sleep over for the night.
So far so good… I was a bit surprised to experience the ‘loo system’ in Europe – you have to pay to use the toilet and there is usually someone waiting outside for payment on a plate!
We accidentally drove up to the Netherlands earlier on but I think that was the Tom Tom’s fault (and partly ours for listening to it without looking at the map )
Given only a few short weeks notice of a road trip with my uncle, I thought it would be good to get a holiday blog-category rolling.
I am hoping to keep it updated from the planning-preparations stage to when we are actually on the road (if I am not too busy
watching movies on my netbook map coordinating )
So this will be a road trip from London to Istanbul, Turkey.
We will be travelling in a BMW X3… I like to call it ‘The Beast’
I installed GTranslate on my blog (the one you’re reading!) not long ago and noticed a strange problem I was having with settings not being saved and the plug-in not showing up as a widget on the home page when it was activated.
If you have the same problem, you will notice the “Configure it from WP-Admin -> Settings -> GTranslate to see it in action” showing up in your widget bar.
This was on GTranslate version 1.0.23 and WordPress version 3.1.3 (both the latest as of this post… although I don’t think the WordPress installation is the problem here… read on!)
I also tried it on a fresh installation of WordPress 3.1.3 to rule out any other configuration/plug-in changes.
If you have a DD-WRT powered router then you already know how powerful and feature-full it is, compared to a standard out-of-the-box ISP provided router.
This article will be about making use of the features that DD-WRT provides out of the box, as well as some other ‘hacks’ we can use to boost the wireless signal in your home or office.
The ones I will talk about today are as follows (in order of usefulness and ease):
- Wireless channel selection
- Update firmware and/or drivers!
- Transmit (Tx) Power
- Beacon Interval
