comment USB Flash drive issues
Using Ubuntu Disk Utility to Format USB as Bootable, then create a FAT partition, sudo syslinux /dev/sdx to install boot sector stuff. Then copying my bzImage file over and making the syslinux.cfg file to point to the bzImage. As I say, works 25% of the time. I'll go through the badzilla link for help too. thnx

comment Will there ever be faster CD and DVD discs and writers?
Mythbusters did a great show on CDs/DVDs breaking apart at high speeds showing the physical limitations of the media.

comment wlan0 goes down when eth0 not used
I have two network connections on the Pi and both are staticly assigned. wlan0 is staticly addressed with 10.0.42.112 and the eth0 is set to 10.0.42.111. If you ping 10.0.42.112 you get a responce. Hence 10.0.42.112(wlan0) is working.

No, it's using the wlan. I can ping both IP and VNC works on both IP. When the cable is unplugged wlan goes down too.

comment DNS name resolution failure while using bridged wi-fi connection
Microsoft calls it a bridge. It's probably more like a PAT/NAT. Just read a MS article saying it automates stuff and creates subnets. Doesn't really matter. It works.

comment DNS name resolution failure while using bridged wi-fi connection
Sorry David, the facts prove otherwise. In fact I have it working right now. Think the issue was either the router or my laptop as I rebooted both during the night and now the problem is resolved.

comment DNS name resolution failure while using bridged wi-fi connection
Guess I didn't state it clearly enough. The Raspi is connected to the laptop's wired LAN port via a crossover cable. The wi-fi adapter and the wired LAN card are being bridged by the Win7 OS thus allowing a shared internet connection. The problem is that WAN traffic doesn't make it's way back to the Raspi but all LAN traffic does. [I'll edit my question for clarity.]

comment Can a huge coiled LAN cable have some trouble for transmitting a signal?
So what was your testing method? I've done tests using oscilloscopes and found that tight bends as shown above give reflections quite easily. Usually not enough to cause complete failure at 10/100 speeds but I saw errors happening.

comment What is the correct term for the mouse pointer/nipple/joystick thingy in the middle of a laptop's keyboard?
It's always been the informal for me. Like in life, the responce you get from the damn thing isn't always what you'd expect.
