It would appear that one of the two Ubiquiti NanoStation Loco M2′s that I purchased has suffered a fault.
I reset it to factory defaults and upon it restarting I noticed that I could only get a ping of about 4-5 packets every 60 or so seconds. It never stayed up long enough for me to get back onto the web interface to configure it again.
Attempted a recovery using tftp etc and got it to accept the firmware via tftp, at which point it reboots post the loading. Once again goes into the same condition. I’ve now submitted it for RMA and will set about sending it back.
Not really my luck with hardware sometimes.
I captured this great photo on the weekend (back in ~Feb 2012), so if anyone wants to use it as a desktop background, by all means download it and use it. (Click the picture for the original photo).

Been wishing to purchase another Apple TV, as we tend to have all our media in iTunes, so this makes things really easy. Had been moving another unit between rooms, so bought another one to stop us having to do that.
Our other unit is a Apple TV (version 2) unit.
Have recently signed up for Quickflix via a trial period. So far really enjoying it, so much so I will be continuing the subscription.
Will post tonight the movies I have seen and if I recommend them to be watched by others. So you will see a few more posts from me about the movies I have been watching.
Installed Mountain Lion for a look on weekend. Certainly different.
Didn’t use it long enough to draw any sort of opinion just yet, so will keep playing around. The first thing I do remember seeing was the way files are now displayed during file copy process using Finder was good. I quite liked this so far.
I’ve been wanting to buy another Macintosh for a while, ever since I sold the Mac Mini I had earlier in the year.
Plan was to go back to the iMac, however considering how old the current model is, it’s clearly due for update. But who knows when?
Decided to let my wife get a new machine this year, so I ended up buying a 2nd hand iMac instead, this will do what I need it to do. Already got Lion on it and all the other items, still a bit of applications to be installed and data to be sorted out. It’s not going to happen overnight, but I will get it all done over time.
Going to be good to have a single place where the two iPad’s can sync too.
Unfortunately both kids have got Chicken Pox, not the best thing to happen. Especially since the youngest wasn’t even old enough to get 18 month needles, thus he has it more so than the oldest son.
Goes to show that immunisation is a good idea, since the oldest son hardly has much of an outbreak of it, where as the youngest is covered. Poor little guy.
As you will remember, a few posts back I mentioned getting a HP N40L Microserver.
These are certainly good servers, but I must admit it was a little on the loud side. Although could of been lived with, however I still loved just how easy the old Synology NAS unit was that I had prior to it.
So decided to sell off the Microserver, good thing too, as the demand for them is still high so I sold it quite easy without much loss.
Had intended to get 2 x Synology DS212j’s, however it appears the supplier was wanting to get rid of some legacy stock, so I picked up Synology DS109 and a DS109+. Plan on running both with a single 2Tb drive and test out the replication between them. At the moment I only have one 2Tb drive, will get another soon.
Will get a DS212j in a few months time and populate with 2 x 3Tb drives (as they drop in price).
I remember a very long time ago when it was much easier to identify the Linux stable kernel branch from the unstable. Seems the kernel numbers we have now with multiple stable branches is certainly confusing.
Still not having much luck with getting Windows Server 2012 to boot under VMware Workstation 8. The failure during booting it in a Virtual Machine is below.
A little annoying to say the least. I’ll eventually work it out I am sure, have tried a number of the suggested workarounds and nothing has worked so far. I guess I will get more motivated eventually.
