I’ve updated the FreeDOS USB boot image to now include the official FreeDOS 1.1 kernel, and command interpreter, now that it has been officially released.

If you are looking for a FreeDOS 1.0 USB Boot Image, see my earlier post of the same title.
If you run in to trouble, take a look at the comments for 1.0 first, many will apply. If that doesn’t solve your issue, leave a comment.
Ahhh... Much Better!
I created a quick greasemonkey script to enable viewing the stats on the Bell Canada branded Cellpipe 7130 modem:

Also, I didn’t really like Bell’s logo all over the gear:
Replace Bell’s logo with TekSavvy’s on Cellpipe 7130 Greasemonkey Script
I’m always looking at ways to run the house more economically. I was already using TekSavvy for home phone, but my average bill was still around $40 then, and that was just for visual call waiting, and $0.03/minute long distance. I was curious about switching to VoIP, and specifically, voip.ms, so I decided to give it a try.
Oshawa is one of the best places in North America for over the air TV. We get signals from the CN Tower, Hamilton, and many of the Buffalo stations. Using the setup I’ll describe, I’m currently receiving 21 (or more) digital TV channels with no rotor, and many of them are HD! Digital TV provides a crystal clear signal. It provides a higher quality signal than Cable TV, particularly with the HD signals, as there is no compression applied to the channel. Best of all, your monthly payments are reduced to $0!

I was trying to update the BIOS of my new SATA controller (a Syba SD-SATA2-4IR, or SD-81012336 – you decide), as the system will not boot with the RAID BIOS, unless you have a logical drive defined. Since this fakeraid is generally garbage, and I’ll be using ZFS as well as gmirror, I thought I would try and work around it.
Yup – that’s right. More detail here.
