Convert MAC address in MS Excel or OO Spreadsheet

 

As I'm currently working a lot with Excel, I get a lot of questions like "How do I do this?" or "How do I do that?". Yesterday someone asked me how to convert a data string to a MAC address. The standard format for printing MAC addresses in human-friendly form is six groups of two hexadecimal digits, separated by hyphens (-) or colons (:), in transmission order, e.g. 01-23-45-67-89-ab, 01:23:45:67:89:ab. In this article I'll give you examples of how to add, remove or change the separator for MAC addresses in MS Excel or OO Spreadsheet.

FON 2200 having a blinking power LED

 

A few months ago I wasn't able to connect to the FON network. Being a Fonero I logged on at the FON website and noticed the following message at my personal page "Your roaming privileges are temporally put on hold". My FON router (a FON2200) did not appear to be online!? When I got home I noticed just one sad blinking power LED, instead of three happy blinking LEDs (power, Internet and wlan)...

TonidoPlug running Squeezecenter 

 

One of the best gadgets I bought recently is a TonidoPlug, the TonidoPlug is based upon the well known SheevaPlug. The SheevaPlug is a 1000 MHz Marvell CPU combined with 512 MB flash, and 512 MB internal RAM. At the size of roughly two cigarette boxes it makes it an ideal home server using just 5 watt. These great hardware specs are combined with a great software package running on top of it. The package is based on Ubuntu 9.04 and lets you choose to use a variety of services (Torrent Client, Photo Gallery, Jukebox, WebsharePro (remote access to your files), Workspace, Thots, Search, Backup and Explorer). It's really easy to setup and you can easily expand its capabilities.
