My Cloud Mirror replacement for My Cloud.

So far all my problems with the My Cloud seem better now. I no longer have the the single bay model. Both have the cons and pros but the dashboard works much better now. No more crawling slow dash that takes forever to load if you want to make any changes or check something. I do miss the option to change things the forums had many different things you could add or change that on the My Cloud Mirror doesn’t. You can add apps on the Mirror but not many are officially and I see none in the forum like the single bay version.

WDMyCloud firmware v04.01.00-408

Nothing but problems since update the firmware. Dashboard would not even load 99.99% till I reset it. Now the dashboard is still extremely slow. Lots of errors about network connection when using the dashboard. Only thing that seems to work ok is the network shares that are already set up. SSH into it is slow and unreliable. I hope there is a update to fix all the problems soon.

Unable to retrieve data. Make sure there are no network connectivity issues and try again. (200005)

Free calls in gmail.

Google Voice lets you manage all your phone communications and seamlessly make and receive calls on any of your existing phones. But what if you don’t have your phone with you? Or what if you’re in a place with poor cell phone reception, or you’re traveling internationally and don’t want to incur expensive roaming charges? Wouldn’t it be great if you could use your computer to make or receive calls?

Starting today you can use Gmail to receive or place Google Voice calls.

To get started, check the box next to Google Chat in your list of forwarding phones and the next time someone calls your Google Voice number, Gmail will notify you of an incoming call. You can take the call or even listen in as the caller leaves a message, in a single step right from your computer.

To make a call, just click the Call phone link in Gmail and enter any number or name from your address book.

All calls made from Gmail will display your Google Voice phone number as the outbound caller ID and all international calls will use your Google Voice calling credit and are offered at the same low Google Voice rates. We took great care to make sure that our rates are as low as possible. For those of you not as familiar with international calling rates, check out our comparison table.

Finally, check out this video:

We’re rolling out this feature to U.S. based Gmail users over the next few days, so you’ll be ready to get started once “Call Phones” shows up in your chat list (you will need to install the voice and video plug-in if you haven’t already). If you’re using Google Apps for your school or business, then you won’t see it quite yet. We’re working on making this available more broadly – so stay tuned!

tNet 2

I currently am hosting the tnet2 master server. Anyone you used to play tnet2 can go to and download the client. Working on a new theme for it. A few of the old players come on every know and then. Old accounts work from 2005. The wrong database got restored so newer accounts were lost just remake your account.
