A little over a month ago I sold my trusty Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop to a family friend since I found that I was basically just using it for movies and nothing else. However, I still needed some sort of mobile computer for email and basic web browsing. On my list of possibilities were one of the netbooks, a smartphone, or an iPhone. After using my friend’s iPhone now and then, and looking at the web capabilities of most smartphones out there, I decided that a netbook was probably my best option. The next question was, as often is the case, which one?

If you check over the My Computers page, you’ll see that the monitors attached to Eclipse have changed (more specifically, most of the systems have changed!). I’ve made a few upgrades here and there, but the best one from a usability point of view has been the changes in my monitor setups.
So… I figured I’d post an update (even if it is a few months old) regarding Hamachi and running it as a service under Windows. LogMeIn updated their licencing to a commercial/non-commercial system as opposed to the basic/premium setup. There’s no difference in functionality now, but it’s assumed that if you use Hamachi in a commercial environment, you’ll pay for it.
That being said, it’s quite easy to run Hamachi as a service now. Click on the gear in the main Hamachi window and select “Preferences” to bring up the configuration options. Under “System”, click on the button that says “Run Hamachi as a Windows Service”. It will restart Hamachi, and voila!
If you’re seeing this (and the hideous default WordPress theme) then it means that the site is being hosted from its new home! Hooray!
EDIT – Yay! The old theme is back again. I’ve also improved the Hamachi status indicators to make the site faster. They’re now being pulled from a database which is updated by the server every 5 minutes. 🙂
Just so everyone is aware, there might be some downtime of this main frontpage in the near future. I’m in the process of moving my domain to my personal registrar, and the site itself to a VPS hosted by my friend jcarle (thanks!). I’m hoping the overall transition will be relatively smooth and there won’t be too many hiccups along the way.
