Announcing SquidMan 2.5 (final)

The final release of a new SquidMan 2.5 is now available. This new version includes Squid 3.0STABLE16, which supports many new features, although these aren’t yet supported by SquidMan.

Please go to the SquidMan pages for more information and a download link.

I’m now planning a major upgrade to SquidMan, which I’m hoping will include support for multiple locations. Hopefully, that release should be available towards the end of 2009.

Announcing SquidMan 2.5 (beta)

I'm pleased to announce the release of a new (beta) version of SquidMan that includes Squid 3.0.

Squid 3.0 supports many new features, but none of these are yet supported in SquidMan. This release is designed to just build the new squid into the old SquidMan engine.

Please go to the SquidMan pages for more information and a download link.

D-Link DWA-110 USB Wireless Adapters & Mac OS X 10.4

I recently had a need to get an older Macintosh working on an 802.11g wireless network. The machine was old enough that Apple no longer made WiFi adapters for it.

I'd heard that the D-Link DWA-110 USB adaptor might work, but I'd also read of some problems. As I had access to one, I thought it was worth giving it a try anyway. These D-Link adapters are quite cheap - around $40-$50 (Australian) - and were readily available at computer stores like Harvey Norman and JB-Hi Fi when this article was written. Read More...

Email Overload

Here’s a chart of how many email messages I’ve sent and received since 1995 at my day job. These numbers don’t include spam, or messages that I’ve deleted. It looks like email as an office tool really started to take off in 1999. I’m not sure how to explain the variations in received mail between 2004 and 2006. Regardless, it looks like I can’t type any faster than about 2500 messages a year...

New SquidMan Coming Soon

I’m currently working on a new version of SquidMan that includes squid 3.0. I expect the first release will be similar to the current version of SquidMan, with few changes other than the new version of squid installed. Eventually, I hope to extend the program to support some of the newer features of squid 3.0, and maybe add a few oft-requested features while I’m at it. Watch this space...

Welcome to the new site!

Welcome to my new-look site - it's been in need of a refresh for some time now, and it’s time I switched to the me.com domain from mac.com.

Right now all you'll find here is some software that I've written. Eventually I might start posting other stuff if I can find the time, because the internet really needs another blog!
