It's like watching two different wars.

It seems there is a nasty bug affecting MacBooks / MacBook Pros. Something related to the wireless card driver when the card is looking for networks.

None of the articles mention how to remediate. No mention of whether or not configuring only "preferred" networks stops the broadcasting.

Also, I'm assuming this only affects the Intel wireless chips in the MacBooks; that it is a driver issue rather than an OS issue.

This is great.


Who are these Sleater-Kinney people and how do they rock so hard?

Durst calls time on production of enlargers.

"After 70 years and countless technical innovations, Durst calls time on production of enlargers

Durst Phototechnik AG in Brixen has been making enlargers since 1936 - first for the professional market and then, from 1950, increasingly for dark room aficionados. Production peaked in 1979, when 107,000 units were produced and sold, but the rapid spread of minilabs and improvements in the service provided by the imaging sector caused a gradual drop-off in production from 1982 onwards. During the entire period, Durst remained the global market leader and a major innovator.

So on 31st July 2006, after 70 years, we will cease production of enlargers, as for years now annual sales have been minimal, running at below four figures."
