Another note to myself: HL-340

11/08/2011 11:30:00 AM 0
That's how I started this blog: keeping a trace of the drivers, firmware files and installation methods in case I'd need them again, saving me from having to figure out the whole thing again. This post is another place holder for the always-vanishing drivers for my USB to Serial adapter

Mouse without Borders

If you're working with 2 Windows computers side-by-side (or more), you will probably adopt rightly this excellent tool from "The Garage" (a Microsoft geeks nest).

5/17/2011 04:56:00 PM 0
I was initially planning this change for much later but my Technomate "TM-5400 CI+ USB Super" died and I had to  look for a replacement, with HD support this time preferably.
