Initial CityLink Ballshit

Having had a previous bad experience with citylink, I thought they deserve a second chance, so I put my doubts aside and even paid extra for a Saturday delivery.

Having now cancelled plans to go out, I have sat here, patiently, in my room above the frontdoor, while keeping one eye on the road, and the other on the web-based tracking.

To my surprise I find the status changes to "There was no one to receive the goods at the delivery point so a card was left"

Really ? Would this be the new invisible card ? With an invisible van and driver ? Must be just a mistake, so phone the local depot, ring, ring, ring. Phone the customer service, voicemail. Phone the headoffice, voicemail.

Its seems im not alone:

So if you live in the UK, make sure you check who is delivering your order

Wireless Access Point with no Router


My friend has a PC upstairs needs internet access, but no money spare for some wireless kit.

I have an old Wireless Access Point ( WAP ) and a Wireless USB adapter spare, but no router.

The downstairs PC is connected to the modem by USB, so the network port is available.


Downstairs USB Modem already has a fixed IP of

Downstairs Network Card set to fixed IP of and standard subnet mask of

Wireless Access Point is connected directly to Network Card by using a cable with a Cross Over Cable Adapter

Downstairs Wireless Access Point set to fixed IP of

The downstairs Network Card and USB Modem connections were selected and then set to be bridged

Upstairs Wireless USB Adapter is set to fixed IP of, standard subnet mask, Default Gateway and DNS set to the IP of the USB Modem

Problems Encountered:

The Network Card must use a different subnet from the modem otherwise the internet stops working.

The WAP was setup to get an IP from DHCP, so to access the configuration, I temporarily ran

Toggling Internet Connection broke the link between the two PC, so instead connection bridging was used.


It was a good learning experience for me, but buying a Wireless Router is far more sensible.

LGSL Update

I got the urge to code, so here is another update for you.

LGSL e107 2.2 and LGSL SA 1.6 are now available

So what are the main changes ?

– Added SWAT4 and Painkiller support with some map images
– Added option to hide offline servers for the index
– Added option to hide offline, full, empty for the menu/module
– Fixed halflife2 server settings being messed up.
– Fixed the feed saying offline servers were not on the feed list
– Added css link styling to the standalone, now hovers red

– Added path option to the index, players, settings pages, which make its easier for people who want to move or integrate those pages with another, such as a CMS custom page.

Enjoy 🙂
