Closed Windows.Posted: March 31, 2011
I decided to use Bootcamp to install Windows 7 on Stacey’s new MacBook Pro for some reason (maybe I’m a masochist). The install went pretty smoothly, but Win 7 refused to connect to my “WEP” wireless network because of security concerns. You know, if the operating system wants to give me a security warning, I’m okay with that. But, the OS flat-out telling me “no”… that’s a little too HAL 9000.
Anyway, I found a work-around in this message board thread…
- Open the Network and Sharing Center.
- Select “Set up a new connection or network.”
- Select “Manually connect to a wireless network.”
- Enter network name (case sensitive).
- Either choose “Change Settings” or find the network profile you just created under “Manage Wireless Networks.”
- On the “Security” tab, the “Security Type” is probably set to “No authentication (Open).” Change it to “Shared” and re-enter your security key.
Couldn’t be simpler, right?
It ain’t dead yet… Hide and Creep gets reviewed again.
There are now three bonus commentary/podcast thingies available for Interplanetary (in addition to the “official” commentary track that comes with the DVD).
According to Lionsgate, you can spend $1.99 million dollars on a flick and still call it a “micro-budget” movie. I sure wish I had a micro-budget deal with Lionsgate.
Look out, iMovie. Vimeo has a video editing app for iOS. And the Vimeo app is free.
I was going to post a link to a PDF of Radiohead’s Universal Sigh newspaper. But Radiohead (or their lawyers) apparently asked for it to be taken down.
The Necronomicon is not an actual book. Contrary to what you might think from reading H. P. Lovecraft stories.
As much as I hate to post links to negative reviews… here’s a mostly negative Interplanetary review. But it’s well-written, and reviewer Christopher Mills has some legitimate gripes with the movie.
