What is this about?

This is a little more personal blog. Compared to my "sister" blog
Men's Fun in the Philippines, the topics in this blog are more varied, touching on technology (I am a geek at heart), troubles at office (I am an executive in a multinational company, but don't bother asking me where), sex (I am perenially horny), the female species (to quote Tom Arnold from True Lies: "can't live with em, can't kill em"), life in Philippines (my home country), and other rants that may cross my mind.

Just wondering what brand wireless print server do you use and whether you have recommendations for print servers (USB and LPT1, 802.11b/g and RJ-45)

Also, you didn't mention a life (wife or live-in) partner, does that mean you're still single (unlese you're divorce) or live alone??? Just wondering.

Sorry about that, was going to post it to the HOME NETWORK piece but got confused. :-)

Also just wondering, could you mention if you're in the IT industry or not? Since you said you're a geek at heart. Also, I think the quote from the movie was "you can't live with them, but can't live without them?" :-)

My reco is to use the same brand as that of your network. I went with Linksys so I am Linksys all the way.

Still just wondering if your in the IT industry. :-) Because I am and not that many people outside of the IT industry does their own home network, at least not at the level you did. Most lack the technical knowhow or just find it plain easier to pay someone else to do it. :-)

I have Edimax, but don't think they have a decent print server. What I want is a wireless print server with 802.11b/g and RJ-45 (only one will be active) then with both USB and the traditional parallel/centronics port. Do you know of any particular brand or model you can recommend? Thanks! :-)

Ha ha ha. Just remember that IT does not just mean programming. It also means setting up an entire infrastructure

Oh yeah about the print server. If you are experimental, try Apple's Airport Express. It is a router, print server, network extender, plus if you connect it to your home stereo you can stream music from iTunes!

Thanks for the advice on the Airport Express, not sure if it has all I want and also whether if it falls within my budget.

Yes, I know that IT doesn't mean programming only. Actually, I hate the notion of ICT, communication is merely an infrastructure of Information Technology. I strongly disagree that it merits its own recognition in the sense that IT is already a higher level (meta) technology. You have a whole lot of technologies in order for IT to be possible so why single out the communication? There's alway sneaker-net whether you use floppy diskettes or DAT or some other media. :-)

Sorry about my quesion regarding you marital status. I didn't notice you gave the answer in one of your blogs already. :-) So, wow, you're the CTO, huh? :-)

By the way, what exactly does a network extender do? Most routers seem to do that but what if you just need an extender and not all the other feature?

Anyway, so far I have seen either wireless or wired (pick one) that may have both USB and Parallel/Centronics but I have yet to see one with both wireless and wired (RJ-45).

Thanks for the advice again! :-)
