Greener IT & Saving Energy
Following on from Haree’s post a few weeks ago about our lovely new Toyota Prius hybrid car, I thought I’d continue the green theme with some thoughts and suggestions on how to make your IT setup a bit more environmentally friendly. There are already several brilliant technologies for reducing energy consumption, some of which may already be built into your existing operating systems, so it’s worth knowing about these, especially as energy costs are set to increase dramatically in the future.
DrayTek 2820 Firmware Issues with VoIP
Now don’t get me wrong, the DrayTek 2820 is an exceptional router. Having used them for over 5 years (2800 previously) and the hundreds we have installed, we’ve only ever had two of them go wrong, and that was after 3 years.
However, recently we have been having serious problems with their new firmware releases. Currently they are on firmware v3.3.4 which is my opinion is quite appalling. The entire web user interface has become slow and sluggish, it takes almost half an hour to configure a box, something which we could usually do in about 10 minutes. Especially since their new URL whitelist/blacklist system has been revamped, it was a learning curve but something which now takes too long to configure when we only want a simple setup.
