Double Images/Shadows on external Screen

There was an issue after i used the iMac for a while my old monitor seemed to be well… incomparable.
i used it as a secondary monitor but it seemed to have a slight shadow and kinda ghost images.

Turned out the VGA cable i used was bad, replacing the cable fixed the issue.

iMac & Drobo FS NAS slow connection..

i recently purchased a 27″ iMac, when i connected it to my Drobo FS via Samba the videos where slow and there was an interruption every few seconds when playing movies via VLC which wasn’t the case with Win7,
initially i thought it was a VLC problem and tried different solutions and none worked.

i stumbled across some posts on the web having similar problems of slowness on Snow leopard and the solution was to change the TCP ACK Delay parameter :

sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.delayed_ack=0

in addition to adding the ip of my Drobo to /etc/hosts this helped speedup the finder browsing my folders.

to make the settings permanent:

sudo vi /etc/sysctl.conf this will edit the file or create it if it doesn't exist

add the following line:
net.inet.tcp.delayed_ack=0

i tested the videos later and the played perfect, it also worked with Air Video and improved the performance alot

i love my Mac

Nails in the Fence

There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.

The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, “You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there.”

The little boy then understood how powerful his words were. He looked up at his father and said “I hope you can forgive me father for the holes I put in you.”

“Of course I can,” said the father.

iPad case/dock hack

i had a problem with my new iPad the genius who invented the case never thought that it might be used with a dock i guess he was in a hurry to have lunch. and its a pain to take out the iPad from the tight case.

i love the keyboard dock it makes typing much easier

there where 3 solutions for this problem
1: Buy the iPhone dock extension cable which is a male-female connector this would also solve the landscape typing issue. but the problem i don’t know where to find it locally and i can’t wait for it to be shipped.

2: Buy the wireless keyboard, then i will have to dump my fabulous dock with keyboard ( scroll up for real reason ) and its a bit pricy here

3: Buy a new case ( i will soon but due to “scroll up” i have to stick to this one for the time being) the original case is great to protect the iPad but it picks up dirt easily and its hard to clean so i’ll go checkout the available cases later

from these 3 options i chose picked option #4: to modify the existing case.

4: The extra leather edges on the bottom are the main reason that the dock connector is not able to reach the iPad connector, using my trusty tools i castrated the case..

still i was facing another problem that the back side is also adding a few mm’s keeping the connector away, i found a small peace of leather placed near the connector for support i guess. removed that stretched the leather on the back bait by inserting the dock inside it then removing it.

Abracadabra now the dock is working again 🙂

NOTE: it is stable as long as u don’t kick the iPad

Hey Mr. Dust in your Face.
