General Discussion / The 2016 4th of July BBQ
« Last post by dickJ on July 03, 2016, 03:53:11 PM »
Just got back from this year's 4th of July SLO Bytes BBQ.  It was another winner!  The weather was perfect, lots of good food, and from me and a few others, a special thanks for providing the cooked bacon for our bacon burgers!  And many thanks to all the helpers, especially Nancy and the kitchen crew, and the fire tenders and hamburger cookers! Thanks Alan for the good session.

General Discussion / Netgear Router warning
« Last post by dickJ on June 24, 2016, 04:23:55 PM »
If you received an email from Netgear in the last few days named Web GUI Password Recovery and Exposure Security Vulnerability, it included a list of Netgear Router numbers with firmware numbers.  Mine was on the list, so after some good advise from Alan, I opened my Netgear Genie and found it needed updating.  After accomplishing that, I found the place on it where I could upgrade my router firmware.  It took 2 minutes + to run with no help needed, and I had a new firmware version.  I then checked back on the above Router list and found that my new firmware version number was NOT on the list! Hurrah!  The new firmware works fine and it was easy to do.  Thank you Netgear!
