Windows Phone 7: Cool But Crass

It's been about 10 years now that I've been a dedicated windows mobile follower, however gone are the days of carrying both a PDA and Cell Phone.
Over the years my PDA/Cell Phone has evolved from PocketPC 2000, Windows Mobile 2003, Windows Mobile 5, to its current state of Windows Mobile 6.5. My relationship with windows mobile is more of convenience than that of love. Until recently the transferring of my calendar information  and contacts data was only possible through a windows interface. Now that Google/Android have entered into the market things are changing. (I don't use a mac, and do not like the iTunes interface so the iPhone  is not an option for me. Blackberry might be an option but I haven't tried them yet).

This October, Microsoft is releasing their Windows Phone 7 operating system with the claim that it will kill the completion. Microsoft staff believe this so much that they have staged a mock funeral for the iPhone and Blackberry. Personally I think this shows no more here Via - SlashGear
I got an idea, Microsoft if you want to kill the competition then just build a better system, you've had 25 year head start to develop your windows mobile product compared to RIM or Google and they're kicking you butt.

Enough with my rants, check out the picture below showing off some cool features being implemented into the new WP7 o/s. Via - DownloadSquad
  • Ring it - so you can find your phone if you miss place it (even if its on vibrate)
  • Map it - so you can see where you left your phone
  • Remote lock it - so no one can use your phone while its missing
  • Erase it - if you're phone can't be found, all personal data will be deleted.
Some really cool features, can't wait to renew my cellular contract

Project: Netgear GS116

Truth be told, this repair was done quite some time ago and is actually part of my structured media home wiring project, which is still ongoing. This Netgear Prosafe 16 Port Gigabit Switch was part of a Craigslist lot I purchased, containing a bunch of computer equipment.  Seeing as I had no need for this switch, at the time, it just sat in my office collecting dust. Once I started my structured media home wiring project I realized the 16 port Netgear could be quite useful, but after a few unsuccessful attempts at utilizing it I realized it was DOA. Here's the situation, when this switch is plugged in, an LED will signify the unit is on and working, however whenever an Ethernet cable is inserted into any of the available jacks, there is no LED activity or connectivity. I took to the world wide web and came across a few similar situations all of which indicated that my unit probably had a bad capacitor. To verify if this was indeed the culprit behind my non functioning switch I woul
