One of our artists (we provide studios) is having the following problem:
Re. internet, I'm having real problems connecting _any_ linux device to
the router (I've tried 8 different ones!). I think this is a BT hardware problem. I can advise with tech logs if need be.
The Router is a BT Business Hub 2700HGV
Can anyone help?

Been tinkering with Snow Leopard Server a bit lately, and thought I'd see what the web server's up to.

I'll be damned if I'm going to search all over t'Internet for this information if I ever need it again in the future, so here's how to use NFS shares in Snow Leopard without all that tedious mucking about with -36 errors.

Why would a perfectly standard MacBook Pro act completely normal in every other networky respect, but be unable to connect to any SMTP server?

This is doing my head in. Which is normally when I turn to novacaster.

One of the most frequently asked questions about Stonehenge is “Why is it where it is?” and there are several possible explanations for this. They're described below but it's important to understand that combinations of these are also possible – there may not be just one single reason.

Back in the mid 1600s one man came to the realisation that Stonehenge was far older than previously thought. Based on his studies, John Aubrey attributed the monument to the British pre-Roman priesthood called the Druids.

The area within a 2 mile radius around Stonehenge contains more than 300 Bronze Age burial mounds or “barrows”. Often these are clustered into what are termed “cemeteries” - groups of barrows that often occur along the ridgelines within sight of the stone circle. Almost all have been opened by investigators and treasure hunters prior to the 20th century and have had their grave goods removed.

It's weird how information finds you. While finishing up at the monument last week I happened to overhear three visitors wondering where the Avenue was. I stopped to point it out to them and we got into conversation.

I'm not even sure it's prior.

Courtesy of the excellent Adam Stanford, here are 3D models of Stela 1 and Stela 2 at Crystal River Archaeological Park based on several hundred photos of them taken by me on my recent visit.

This archaeological site of over half a dozen mounds and several standing stones dates between ~500BC and 1400AD.

Most people are aware of the existence of a piece of graffiti on the southern edge of Stone 52 at Stonehenge which reads "I WREN" and is reputed to be that of Christopher Wren.
While doing the stone check this morning, I happened to notice a second occurrence of the name "WREN", this time on the west face of Stone 23.
Here are photos of these graffiti for comparison.

Can anybody translate, or transliterate, ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics?

I received this painting from Canada's best known art collector years ago,I have all the documentation right down to a bill of sale and a signed letter on rear of painting from Picasso to his partner at the time,if you have to ask who don't bother. The painting was actually going to be burned to heat the room they lived in during the year 1902 which is when it was actually painted not 1903 as dated. The painting has a very obvious thumb print in left bottom corner which is referred to in the letter on the rear of painting as his way of marking his work.I have no interest in selling this painting and I consider it my most precious possesion.

Looking for recommendations for couriers to ship large packages in the UK and abroad (eg to USA & Spain)... any searching Googling etc just brings up horror stories. Any good ones out there?

Can anyone recommend a low cost, secure, web hosting company? Does it make any difference where/which country they are based?
Currently only have two domains (only one is actively used for my billycan website) to which I might be adding two in the near future.
