I’m looking for weather forecasting software and EMWIN software for Linux. Has anyone seen anything out there? Still doing some searching, though.
UPDATE: I’m not looking for a piece of software to download the forecast from the NWS, I’m looking for weather analysis software.
I just got “training” on purchasing computers for the Fortune 100 company I work for. We do a lease with a large computer company and we send back computers that have expired warranties and lease new ones a few times a year.
After seeing the “Genuine Microsoft Windows Vista Business…” statement on the laptops we asked for this morning I has a sudden flashback to looking at the sticker on my laptop (“Warranty End: 11/03/2008”). YIKES! I hadn’t thought I would be thrown under the bus so soon.
So I’m grasping at straws to try to make this event less painful. Due to my position, I have two XP partitions and a Fedora (FC5) partition on my laptop. I don’t really use the Fedora side of the house unless I’m really trying to… umm… break something. This is largely due to my inability to connect to my company’s e-mail server without using the “Exchange” protocol. I’ve tried IMAP4 and POP3 without success. I need to call the helpdesk but I don’t really want to alert IT that I’m doing something outside the scope of their… umm… expertise.
So it looks like I have a few months before anything happens but I’m going to be looking hard at installing CentOS 5.1 with a couple of VMs (F9, Rawhide, etc). I might even install a Vista VM just so I know how to attack it.
I know somewhere there has to be a file that retains information on the wireless access points (WAP) that you connect to using Network Manager. Anyone know the name of that file?
Amanda was visiting a friend up in Cleveland a while back and connected to her friend’s WAP (named linksys). Now every time she gets near a “linksys” WAP her computer will jump to it. That includes being at home a mere twenty feet from our own WAP (not named “linksys”). Not only is it very annoying to her but it also poses a security risk to her data and could possibly be illegal.
I haven’t had a chance to really investigate this problem, either, as she is always using her computer for school. Maybe I can steal it away at 5 in the morning to take a closer look at the issue.
