So tonight Kayla and I went out for dinner. We went to Jiamen for dinner, Kayla was not a huge fan, I thought it was good but not my style. We are the more traditional American Chinese type. After getting done eating it was to late to go to a movie, so we decided to go to riverside and do some gambling, I insisted I have to play blackjack. I seem to have beginners luck, and tonight was that case. SinceĀ  it was my first time playing blackjack at a casino, I wasnt sure what to do, but I sat down, got some chips and started playing like a pro ( just kidding). However since we had to be back to pick up the kids, we headed out early, I only played about 30 minutes. All in all it was a lot of fun, the best part was I went home with 25 dollars more then I started!

I use tomato on one of my routers at home. Its a hacked firmware for select linksys routers. So far it has treated me really well. I have my bandwidth monitor enabled, which keeps track of downloads/uploads in gigabytes. You can backup the logs. That is where I am running into issues.

When saving through cifs on Windows 7 (I am assuming Windows Vista is very similar), I had to do several special things to get it to work properly.

1) First issue I had, is mounting the cifs, you need to use the IP of the machine not the hostname. Since it does require the IP, I made my desktop machine ip static.

2) Now you have to share a directory to be able to save the files too. I have mine saved to a dropbox folder as an extra backup. When mounting the cifs you need a user account on the machine and it must have a password. Make sure that user has access to the shared folder. To share a folder you can just right click go to properties->sharing

3) Another issue I had was, the folder had to be in the root of the filesystem for it to work. I am unsure why, but just from looking on google about cifs and tomato that was a suggestion. Since I wanted my logs saved in a different location this didn’t work for me. So I found out if you make a simlink in the root of your harddrive to the directory where it will be saved it will work.

I created a simlik with the command below (With windows 7 you have to run the command as an administrator, right click on command prompt and so a run as).

C:\mklink /D C:\tomato “C:\Users\tonyscha\My Dropbox\tomato”

Now my tomato bandwidth logs are saved hourly!


Happy Easter

Happy Easter. I may not believe in Easter or Zombie Jesus, but I thought I would share the holiday spirit.

Today has been crazy, got some eggs dyed, tomorrow will be the neighborhood Easter egg hunt. Schools been keeping me super busy. And I feel like I have been Mechanic Tony on the weekends. Been trying to watch TV shows in my mean time. Stargate Universe starts up again, YAY!!!! Kayla and I started watching Arrested Development, its an extremely funny show.

Time back to the real world.
