Thanks to All!

From: David Rucker 

I just wanted to send out a thank you to everyone that helped with
suggestions on my home network equipment.

Previously I had issues with having more then one device at a time
connected that was accessing the net. I could only use one streaming
service at a time on one device only if I started two both would slow down
and were not usable. If I started downloading something while streaming it
would kick the streaming device basically offline.

After polling the group for ideas/answers I decided to go with Ubiquity
equipment. I got an EdgeRouter X and an AP-LR (non-AC) AC while being
faster just doesn't seem to have much distance.

Well I am happy to report that I have my Ubnt equipment fully setup and its
performance is outstanding for my setup. My Internet is a 250MB/s Fiber
provided by Ringgold Telephone Company. I can now successfully stream HD to
2 devices and simultaneously download at 4+MB/s!

I am thoroughly pleased with the outcome of my equipment purchase. Just for
FYI I have a PoE injector feeding the ER-X and passing through to the AP
and also have a PogoPlug Mobile connected to the ER-X as well. My next
project, for this coming weekend most likely, will be installing Debian and
MiniDLNA on my PogoPlug. I like some of its NAS features but would like to
get away from a 3rd party application/account management. I love the fact
that I am continuing to get use out of it after purchasing it on clearance
while I was working at radioshack 2-3 years ago for about $10!

PS. Would love to come participate in the HW Swap that is currently in
discussion but I am currently getting ready to go to Japan for ~3 months
and will be leaving in 2 weeks. When I get back thought I will drag some of
my classic Mac stuff to see if anyone is interested.

Proposed Swap Meet

I like the idea.. but it seams we all have a lot of hardware. What if we do this in a way and place that might be enticing to the public and advertise it to them. Via Tech Council, Chadev and maybe even some advertising (free/cheap) like Nooga.com, etc.. We need some non-so-techno-hoarders that might actually need/buy some of our “junque”. the date might need to get pushed depending on how much remodelling I need to do 

By late May (the 28th?) I’ll have an office ready for renting out, we’d have an indoor and outdoor area. ‘Net connection, power, etc.. and it’d be a way to show it off as available for rent. And I can clean out multiple storage hoards. 

Proposed idea: 

Chugalug Hardware Swap, Linux Install-Fest and Technology Give-Away

Date: May 28th, Saturday 10am to 7pm

Where: 1028 Signal Mtn Road, Suite 100 and Parking Lot



Power cables

Anyone got a box or a big ol' pile of them that don't mind me having a few?=

[CHUGALUG] [OT] For Sale: MacBook Pro Retina i7, 8GB, 500Gb SSD Mid-2012

From: Wil Wade 
Selling a MacBook Pro Mid-2012:

Proc: 2.6 GHz i7 Quad Core
Memory: 8GB 1600 DDR3
Display: 15.4" Retina (512 MB Intel Graphics)
Storage: 500 GB Flash/SSD
Battery: Works for hours (reports ~9hrs at full charge with nothing running)

Just wiped. Great condition. Only flaw is that there is a spot on the left
command key where I apparently rest my finger.

How much you ask? I saw prices for this thing all over the place
($800-1,200), but for a Chugaluger or Chugaluger friend $700. (People you
don't like are welcome as well, but feel free to jack up the price and
we'll spit the extra profit!)
