The White Rabbit – Happy Thursday!

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

“One pill makes you larger,

And one pill makes you small,

And the ones that mother gives you,

Don’t do anything at all,

Go Ask Alice

When she’s 10 feet tall…….”

Andysworld! downtime!

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

I shutdown Andysworld! for 12 hours, (between Feb 4 00:00 and 13:00) because I was having issues with the performance and database, But I suspect the issue could be with my home broadband throughput.

in the process of checking the database, the website may have sent out, emails by mistake if you are registered on Andysworld!

Whoops!

Sorry about that!

Hopefully back to normal, and was nothing!

Andysworld! new logo and identity on the internet

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

I was getting bored with the stock template image, and although I had changed it from the default blue to green, I’ve been wanting to change it for a while. As you may have noticed we have a new “clickable Logo “. If you click it, it will return to the homepage (root of the website).

Andysworld New Logo and Indentity

Andysworld New Logo and Indentity

I’ve been testing VMware View 4.6 (Virtual Desktops using PCoIP) experimenting with Windows 7 64 bit Professional and Adobe Photoshop CS5 64 bit, using virtual desktop workstations. I wanted to test fully, so I spent a few hours testing Adobe Photoshop Cs5 (64 bit) and Corel Paint Shop Pro x3 to check what performance was like testing the in the Cloud! I think the performance was better than installing it on my standard PC.

As more web site traffic comes to Andysworld! than it did five years ago, I’ve decided it’s time for a facelift, so the logo is the start.

As you may have noticed I “borrowed” the theme for the logo, from a well known Search Engine, if it works for them! the random colours in the logo, reflect the choas in my life, from one day to the next!

Wireless (WiFi) Remote Control of X10 Modules using USB Remote Access

Sunday, December 20th, 2009
  1. The Active Home Pro software is installed on/in a virtual Windows XP Professional computer, I don’t like cluttering up my main production Workstation which happens to be Vista 64-bit Ultimate.
  2. The CM15PRO Programmable Computer Interface is connected by USB to this computer. The Active Home Pro software is the software that drives the computer interface, I’ve saved the “house file” house.ahx on my NAS (network attached storage) device, so it can be easily shared on my network.
  3. This is the clever Tech bit, USB over Network by Fabula Tech, I’ve been using this software in the virtual work I do for a few years, and it allows you to share a USB device over your network, e.g. you can plug in you USB device on one computer, and connect to it on another via your network. Very handy… USB remote access!
  4. The USB over Network by Fabula Tech is installed on the computer connected to the CM15PRO Programmable Computer Interface. We will call this the server.

The above snapshot, shows the USB over Network server software running, and the current USB devices attached to the server, which can then be shared, just like any resource, disk, printer etc.

The device is shared, and is waiting for a client computer to connect to it.

You can give the devices meaningful friendly names, that you’ll remember. On the client computer (remote computer), install another copy of Active Home Pro, making sure the drivers are installed for the CM15Pro. Run the USB over Network client software.

Select USB Device, Add, browser for the computer or enter IP address. You should see, a list of devices that can be connected to.

Right click the device, and click connect, if this is the first time you’ve connected to the device, you’ll get the usual, bing-bong tones, and plug N play will start and register the drives.

Now you can use your ActiveHome Pro software on another wireless (WiFi) computer, just open the *.AHX home file, from a shared location.
