Anyone have experience boosting wifi signals?
I just moved out into the woods and our landlord's wifi is wafts just barely over to our little hut. My googling reveals vegetable-strainer boosters and Pringles cantennas, but these seem to basically require that you hitch your computer up to an awkward setup that requires staying more or less still/attached to a USB dongle the whole time. Is there anything out there that would give me more wireless-ness and freedom of movement?
Key points: yes, we have landlord's consent and access to her router, although of course we can't set up anything that would interfere with her signal. And no, I'm not all that technically proficient, although I can fake it. Just don't ask me to modulate an Rf or anything like that.
So I got a Paypal account and it tells me that it has to verify my bank account. Does that mean I have to wait until it does in order to actually start accepting payments?
But then I just give the email address that I attached to the account, right? I don't have to give the account number?
Hey DPers. Completely not Portland-related, other than that I need some help on a project for my German class at PSU. If you are/know of someone who grew up speaking German and has a little bit of free time tonight, I just need somebody to shoot a couple emails back and forth with me in German. I would be greatly appreciative, probably to the tune of the cost of a dinner or $20 or something. My project is due tomorrow, so the quicker the better. You can contact me here or, even better, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance!
I'm trying to find a place that sells Japanese Yews, specifically Taxus cuspidata, and not just as seeds. Any ideas?
1.) A cheap but functional tortilla press. I'm sure given the number of specialty stores there must be one about, but I wouldn't know where to start looking. I want to start making my own corn tortillas and I suck at round and flat.
2.) Nice Japanese incense. Does Portland have an incense store? It's not at Uwajimaya or FuBonn. Specifically (if you know incense or are looking for a nice scent) it's Horin Horikawa in River Path. Bought it in Japan (so they might not sell it here) but worth asking.
3.) Anyone believe 'em when they say it's gonna get nice out starting tomorrow?
I have to come up with some playlists for our (very soon) upcoming wedding. I personally am partial to stuff like Mason Jennings, Bob Schneider, Roy LaMontagne. I know not all that is really dance-able and people like to dance at weddings. Any recommendations along these lines (or anything else you think I should really check out?) Thanks in advance.
Suggestions, thoughts, snark?
