Awesome sauce. ;)

Extremely ironically, (see here (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?t=115549), those who are wondering) I'm going to be in Palmerston North on the 4th, 5th and 6th. Also out on the 19th and 20th.

Honest Lawyer is a great central spot, up how does the 13th sound?

If Scouse wants a ride over from Mot, that's no problem.

well, I don't know nelson that much and to be brutally honest I don't know when I will be coming down either.

personally I would like to be down there ASAP but in reality, maybe 2 to 3 weeks..I am currently struggling to find a suitable place to live....:(

but yeah 13th of Feb sounds reasonable :D

I might be able to make the 12th but not until at least 1pm as will be helping SWMBO at her work all morning (Brook Sanctuary) she is the Administrator

So which day have we settled on? 1pm on the 12th?

wratterus
27-01-2011, 01:00 PM
It sounds like the 13th works better for you Gary, it doesn't bother me, in fact thinking about it it's probably better.

I was just thinking Saturday cause that's when we've done previous times.

1pm Sunday the 13th?

27-01-2011, 01:04 PM

Good morning there everyone :D

I have safely arrived in Nelson (2 days ago), I don't have convenient internet access yet so I can only check stuff when the owner of the laptop im using now is not using it....from now to 3pm basicly

The 13th sounds good :D

Now to the main point, I need a wireless adaptor for my desktop, the flat i am staying in have a wireless modem, and everyone is using wireless (laptops). I can use a ethernet cable, but the only place I can find is DSE and it is very very expensive by my standards ($35 for a 2 meter one if I remember it right, I need about 10 meters). DSE also sells very very expensive usb wireless adaptor as well (around $100), their own brand is cheaper (well, still expensive by my standard), but clearly of low quality.

The question is, do you guys know of any local shop which sells a wireless adaptor at a more reasonable price? or am I better off going on trademe?

Thanks for the help in advance

Wratty might be able to help although he is in Motueka but works for a shop selling and repairing computers. I can't help as I only use Ascent or Computer lounge and I don't have a 10m ethernet cable if you had needed short ones I have dozens lying around. Whereabouts in Nelson are you staying?

Thanks for the reply :D

I'd prefer to purchase a wireless adaptor rather than a cable :P

I am staying in rutherford street.

do you think this is reasonable?

Wratty, you back from the robbery?

wratterus
07-02-2011, 08:12 AM
Yeah. :(

I've got a Belkin USB wireless adapter lying around that you're welcome to have for nothing. I haven't used it for a while, I'll test it today and make sure it's alright.

Which OS are you running on the laptop, I'll grab some drivers too if you'd like, :)

I've been using this wireless adapter all morning and apart from one random dropout that I'm pretty sure was the routers fault, it's been perfect. It's yours if you want it. :thumbs:
