I have a Humax Foxsat HD Satellite Receiver I use in the UK.
I saw on channel 999 and at BBC Iplayer on Freesat that the BBC Iplayer is available on beta to humax users with a broadband connection. As a previous Virgin/NTL subscriber the one thing my wife and I miss is being able to watch the IPlayer on the television so this sounded great. The problem is my router is a good distance away from the television but I have a wireless router plugged into the back of a cisco plugged into the back of my NTL modem so wireless seemed just the trick.
Recently I've had a spate of issues reported in dbi-users mailing list and direct to me wrt calling procedures in MS SQL Server. I thought it might be worth covering some of the more common ones here.
I've had a laptop stolen! It was a long time ago, I'd paid thousands for it (over £3000, it was a long time ago when laptops were a lot more expensive than now) and I was gutted. To make matters worse I'd not put a BIOS password on it and also this is when I discovered my mis-sold insurance policy only covered £1200. Thank you Skipton Building Society - not. I took it in to work to show a colleague Linux on it and made the mistake of leaving it in my bosses car whilst we went for a drink before going home. Someone got in to the underground car park, broke the window and made off with it - thief - sorry for your window boss. If I'd installed a BIOS password then at least I would have had the small comfort that although not impossible to get around, it would have made matters difficult.
Today I released a new development version of DBD::ODBC (1.23_2).
