San Diego

For my wife’s birthday we went down to San Diego for the day. This was just a day trip and we were just going around using the trolley for transport. We did an escape room while we were there and also did an urban adventure quest that took us through old town and into Little Italy area. Really some areas, these are a few shots made with my iPhone. No post processing just some fun shots with no real purpose or reason.

How to reset a Motorola/Brocade 7131 AP

I needed to reset the config of a bunch of Motorola APs and unfortunately the documentation isn’t readily available. Here is the easiest way when you can get access to the console.

  • 1. The console settings are 19200/8/n/2
  • 2. Once the boot process hit ESC and this will take you to the boot menu.
  • 3. type reset config
  • 4. Once this is done type reboot

You have now reset the config.  Below is a capture of the process.

Logitech iPad Folio Review

I was lucky enough to win the Logitech Keyboard Folio from TUAW.  I can’t thank them enough for having the contest and being lucky enough to win it.

I wanted to write up a quick review of the unit for other people that are thinking about getting it.  I am currently using it to type out this blog post on my ipad.  I am finding that I am using my ipad more and more to do different things where I don’t want to carry my laptop.  I have been using an Apple bluetooth keyboard previously and have adapted to that scenario.

I synced my ipad to the Logitech Keyboard Folio and then started to type on it.  Thy typing on this keyboard is a treat to type on.  I found the key response to be great and really enjoy using it.  The biggest issue I had from a typing perspective was the where the 2 key is placed.  I kept hitting the 1 key thinking I was hitting the 2 key.  That seems to be really just an issue because of how much smaller the keyboard is.

I think by far the biggest issue I have with the unit is the weight and the size.  It makes the ipad almost twice as tall and adds just an obscene amount of weight.  For me if I am going to carry around that much weight I would rather take my 15″ MacBook Pro.

These are of course my observations and someone else may have a different opinion, but for me the weight and size of the tech matters to me as I am normally carrying it around on my back and like to travel light/slimmed down.
