I just started RomaniPrinLume.Com – a how-to live “guide” for Romainans outside their borders. There is a big community of romanians living outside of Romania and this website is for them and for those that want to follow their path. This project is something i consider useful and of great value for visitors and users. Continue reading “RomaniPrinLume.Com – a new web project”
I’ve always spent a loooot of time on installing Windows. Not only for me, but for everybody that i’ve fixed their PCs or just “cleaned” them a bit. I had to download a Windows iso file, then burn a DVD everytime (i had like over 50 Windows 7 DVDs that are all over the globe probably) and i had to waste time installing different softwares.
After some years of doing this, i’ve came up with the portable solution. It’s relying on an internet connection so the PC should have drivers that Windows 7 or 8 can recognize without any problems. If not, get the manufacturers CDs or just get them from the internet on a different PC. Continue reading “Fast way to setup a Windows PC”
Today we finally had our first real FabLab Workshop course. FabLab (fabrication laboratory) is the playground for students at EAL, especially for those in the Product Development and Technology Integration class. (my class). The are tons of awsome stuff there and today we used the laser cutter for the first time. Continue reading “FabLab Workshop”
In the 4th semester of my AP degree programme, we were all required to find a company where we could have our internship. I wasn’t sure what i really wanted (as always) so i decided that any IT related company can be good. It turned out good and i have been accepted by a small web development company, based in Bucharest, Romania, called End Soft Design. Be sure to check them out at www.endd.ro Continue reading “My internship – thoughts and retrospective”
Ok, so this post is a bit late ( several months late) as i finished my project and i’m currently in 5th semester. Not too many details, because the posts purpose is to be short.
The idea is simple – i want to be able to communicate wirelessly over a distance of over 150m using an own-built wireless booster – the cantenna. The system overview is even simpler:
I needed to link 2 tables in MySQL and i thought it would be soooo easy, but it turned out it’s not. I was getting a lot of weird errors but the one in the title was the most persistent. Continue reading “MySQL Error Number 1005 Can’t create table ‘.mydb#sql-328_45.frm’ (errno: 150)”
I was in class just the other day, when a classmate comes to me and says : “how would you like one of my usb wireless adapters, i don’t know if it’s still working or anything, but you can have it”. I was like, “sure”. I just got it today. As the title says, it’s a Siemens Gigaset USB Adapter 300. I didn’t even knew that Siemes makes wireless adapters.

My networking teacher said that it would be cool to turn one of the routers that we have been playing with (Asus RT-N16) into an AP so that the class would connect to it instead of the schools network nearest AP.
Why do that? So we can see who is accesing what, get some statistics on that and probably to make a “wall-of-shame” where we could write the students usernames and passwords.
Since we started our database courses (last semester), the teacher introduced us to XAMPP or LAMPP (if on linux) – it is an Apache distribution that contains MySQL, PHP, Perl and an FTP server (proftpd). It’s intended to be easy to install and use and it’s good for developers. Continue reading “LAMPP or XAMPP – How to”
