    There's usually the "if he can do it, anybody can" effect in play there.

    From where I'm sitting, that sounds like it translates to "multiple remotes", not "universal remote".

    The thing I like about the Harmony is that it's primarily activity-based rather than...

    As I recall, the one in Lancaster was lane-wide lateral grooves, so no avoiding it. OTOH, it was well away from any residences.

    No real change that I've noticed.

    The search algorithms are still broken, failing in unpredictable and annoying ways.

    I've driven that road...once. I pity any poor bugger who has to use it for his daily commute, and I'd love to know how usage of that stretch changed as the locals fled to alternate routes.

    Use "ipconfig /all" (instead of just "ipconfig"), and it will also show what DNS servers are in play. It would also be helpful if we could see how to do this on an iPad to compare the one that works...

    "A series of 6 hexadecimal numbers" sounds more like a MAC address. Worst case temporary fallback is to set the DNS to 8.8.8.8, which is Google's public DNS address.

    How did you set up the IP4 address on the XP box, DHCP or manual? That it works with the hardcoded IP address sounds like it doesn't have a good DNS server address set.

    Can it see the iPad?

    Honda owner's manual "recommends" 50MPH max for 50 miles, same as I recall from the first mini-spare I had in 1981. Coincidentally, that's the same as the set of run-flats that came on the 'Vette.

    Mini-spare mini-rant

    I'm not sure if it's just my car (newish Honda Accord), but the guy who designed the spare really did not Think It Through.

    Yeah, but that "finite number" is about 60TB-100TB for older drives and at least double that for newer ones. At 40GB per day (an insanely high number for a home-use computer), that works out to 4...
