Anybody had any experience with either of these:
IOGear Wireless 4-Port USB Sharing Station
IOGear 4-Port USB Sharing Hub
Both come with installation CD which raises concerns.
Or any suggestions on similar devices?

It's going to be a public wiki, in the sense that it's going to be on
the Internet, and the userbase is not clearly defined, but will be
largely or wholly self selecting.

A friend of mine is a die-hard user of the Windows MUA The
Bat! (yes, the client name includes the exclamation mark). He does,
however, wish to move to Linux at some point and is looking for a mail
client which has comparable features to The Bat!
He's already tried Thunderbird and it doesn't meet his requirements,
also GPG support (either directly or through plugins) is essential.
Plus his hardware is so old that he can't just run Windows in a VM to
continue using The Bat! and Wine may or may not work, but is beig
considered. The ideal solution, of course, is a native client which
supports the same features as The Bat! While hardware constraints
have him considering Lubuntu as the primary candidate for a
Those of you unfamiliar with The Bat! can refer to these pages for a
list of features (of which my friend uses most):
Does anyone have suggestions for email clients for him to try?
P.S. My GPG key has been updated since I last posted to the list,
there's a link to my key transition statement in my .sig file.

I have a dell xps 15 L205X and i'm having a technician from dell to come
over about the speakers making a "burning rubber" smell when used above 80%
volume. Now i'm wondering if the smell would be because fedora is pushing
the speakers (sub-woofer) above its maximum?
What controls the maximum volume, the sound-card or the driver/ALSA?
And if its alsa.. what to do about the sub, is it still a problem, should i
get it replaced anyway, call off the repair? I'm not sure..
I have a friend currently running Windows on a laptop, where IE was so
woeful that they were looking to upgrade the USB wireless broadband
dongle. When I installed Firefox, matters improved, but some of the AV
and malware software is not playing nice.
As a result, I would like for them to be able to run Linux from a USB
stick as a first trial before expunging Windows. This will require
supporting the current connection with a Telstra Elite Mobile Broadband
USB Modem, which is activated. I am aware that it has a dual
personality, with the storage holding the install software, and having
to be switched into the modem mode for communications.
What I would appreciate is personal experience with this device, and
what it can be made to do, and what the limitations are. I would also
appreciate any pointers to what I might also consider for my personal
use, where I will not require to run Windows for the activation phase. I
am currently on dialup, but I have "issues" when I try to get the
digital version of Linux Journal. Specifically, there is something in
the network path causing undue ping times, whereas I can do much the
same to grab similarly sized files from other sites, and it does work.
Having limited amounts of prepaid quota would be very helpful for
intermittent use, as would further information that will assist in
dealings with Telstra's marketing, and ostensibly not supporting Linux.
I have a few OpenWRT installations on Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH2 routers that mostly works great, but one appears to have just lost the radio. The router can scan and see other wireless networks around, but mostly nobody can see it apart from sporadic periods where they can see the ssid but not successfully connect. It was working fine and then suddenly wasn't, even after a power cycle.
So I think the radio tx is dying or dead... does anyone have any anecdotal evidence of a problem with this particular router, or maybe I was just unlucky?

I actually meant the extent and quantity of binary package dependencies,
and, yeah, just doing 'apt-get install gitit', if feasable.
(I'm lazy and spoiled by Debian's build infrastructure.)
Build dependencies are of course a whole different thing, and a point
worth noting for situations where it's relevant.
