We recently purchased a Roku Digital Video Player at our office and have been experimenting with it. The Roku remote is very simple with minimal buttons which is nice in most scenarios but whenever you have to type anything into the Roku it is fairly annoying that there is not a keyboard available. To resolve that issue and require you to have one less remote on your coffee table it is worth checking out DVPRemote which is an iPhone application that lets you take full control of your Roku device. Below is more information regarding DVPRemote including some of the benefits of this iPhone application.
When attempting to update the Notepad++ AutoSave plugin you may receive an error from the Notepad++ Plugin Manager.

We recently purchased a Roku to play around with at the Question Defense office. So far the Roku has been pretty slick even though the navigation is fairly slow. After browsing through all of the Channels in the Roku Channel Store we were surprised that YouTube was not one of the offerings available. The good news is YouTube can easily be added and will function as the other Channels on your Roku device. Follow the directions below to add a YouTube Channel for your Roku account.
The other day while configuring a Asus RT-N16 wireless router we had installed DD-WRT software on I decided to turn off HTTP access to the web admin interface. After making this change I got pulled away to test something else and never tested it so I was surprised when I attempted to login today and I was unable to login to the DD-WRT web interface using HTTP or HTTPS. Turns out something was not allowing HTTPS to start and since I had disabled HTTP the wireless router was no longer listening on port 80 or port 443. Below is information on how to start Apache after logging into a wireless router running DD-WRT either via SSH or via telnet.
Getting this module working is not very much fun if you are on a single boot system with Backtrack or Ubuntu installed however it is much easier if you are on a dual boot system that happens to also boot into Windows XP. I personally ran into the issue of the Dell Wireless 350 Bluetooth Module working with Backtrack on a development laptop that luckily didn’t have much data on it because to resolve the problem you need to install Windows XP, run a executable within XP from Dell to upgrade the firmware on the Dell Bluetooth 350 Module, and then reinstall Backtrack. Below is more information about how to get the Dell 350 Bluetooth Module working in Ubuntu or Backtrack Linux.
