Film Developing

September 20th, 2010 No comments

If, like me, you’re still using a 35mm camera, you’re probably wondering which is the best mail order developing company to use. I’ve just had some done by Fuji Digital Imaging and I was really impressed by the quality of the pics and the service. You get a free CD with decent quality JPEGs on too.

Google Apps – Xerox Scan to Email

August 13th, 2010 3 comments

Switched to Google Apps and now can’t get your Xerox printers to scan to email? It’s because Google’s servers require you to use SSL when sending email and the Xerox’s can’t send by SSL. To get it working, you’ve got two options (#2 is the far easier option):

1. You can use a program called Stunnel to accept the Xerox’s SMTP transfer and transmit it to Google via a secure connection. More info here.

2. Google actually accepts non-SSL SMTP connections on one of their servers, aspmx.l.google.com on port 25. Set the Xerox to send via that and set your username and password to a Google Apps account.

I just bought myself a camera. It’s very old school. It’s a Canon EOS300 35mm SLR. Yes, that’s right, 35mm film!

Windows 7: Change network gateway

March 19th, 2010 No comments

Recently started using Windows 7 64bit at work and I wanted to change my network gateway to use a different broadband line. I did the usual thing, went into the properties of my Local Area Connection, Properties of TCP /IPv4, Advanced, Default Gateways, Add. Added the IP address, perfect, has always worked before. Until now. 7 would just not accept it. Tried repairing the connection, restarting the PC. Nothing worked. I was starting to get frustrated!

There is quite a simple solution though. Just set your network card to use a static IP address and gateway and it works fine.
