10.7: Enable the FTP server – Mac OS X Hints

10.7: Enable the FTP server Aug 05, 11 07:30:00AM • Contributed by: 5chm31din6Apple seemingly dropped the FTP Server support in Mac OX Lion. Only the GUI has been removed and the FTP Server can be activated. You can still enable it with the command line. To start it type the Terminal command: sudo -s launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist To stop it: sudo -s launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist

Difference b/t .030 & .035 mig wire, help please.

Re: Difference b/t .030 & .035 mig wire, help please.OK, I see two different questions being addressed here;1 – The OPs question paraphrased, “Which wire is better for welding 3/8″ thick mild steel? 0.030″ or 0.035″?2 – What diameter wire runs better on a MM211? 0.030″ or 0.035″?In answering question #1, I stand by my original recommendation. 0.035″ wire is better for joining 3/8″ thick mild steel. Based on Millers specs for the MM211, youre asking alot of the machine to deliver enough current and voltage to do the job properly on 3/8″ material, using short circuit transfer. lets not debate getting spray transfer from the MM211 here, thats a whole other topicAirgass website has some good info on this, and so does Lincoln Electrics website. http://www.airgas.com/content/detail…=7000000000143http://www.lincolnelectric.com/asset…L-56/c4200.pdfWith regards to question #2, yes, 0.030″ probably runs better on the MM211. The current required to weld with 0.030” solid wire is right in the sweet spot for the MM211 amperage range. Im sure the arc is at its best performance in that amperage range. But that doesnt mean “average joe” can make sound welds with 0.030″ wire on 3/8″ thick mild steel.We can debate the max thickness its possible to join with 0.030″ wire; with short circuit transfer. I stand by my recommendation that most people should limit themselves to 14 gauge, with 0.030″ wire.I dont rely on 0.030″ for anything thicker than 1/8″ in short circuit transfer and mixed gas75/25. I wont recommend that a novice “push the envelope”. Better if they just step up to the next wire size and weld with the proper settings, using wire that delivers the right amount of current to the weld puddle.not sure if the OP is a novice or not, I just respond to all questions as if they are. Since some other person, who is a novice, might read what I wrote and take it as gospel

Using a Router as an access point

Re: Using a Router as an access point (WRT54GC)

You need to convert your WRT54GC to a WAP (wireless access point).

Disconnect your WRT54GC from your wired router.
Connect one computer, by wire, to any numbered port (not the Internet port) on the WRT54GC.

In the WRT54GC do the following:
Set the “Local IP Address” to a fixed LAN IP address, such as (assuming you are not using this address elsewhere in your network, and assuming the wired router’s address is still
Turn off the DHCP server.
Save your settings.

Power down the WRT54GC and your computer.
Using an ethernet cable, connect any numbered port on the wired router to any numbered port on the WRT54GC. Do not use the Internet port on the WRT54GC.
Power up your system.

The wired router will control your router settings (firewall, DHCP server, port forwarding, etc.). The WRT will control your wireless settings.

Changing Default Time Machine Backups

Changing Default Time Machine Backups By Taylor Amon

By default, Time Machine backs up your system every hour if you leave your backup drive plugged in. If you are creating a lot of new data, this is a great system as it allows you to be able to have a consistent backup of all your information.

However, If you don’t need to have data backed up that frequently, or if you want to change it to back up more often, it is possible to change the default frequency for backups with this simple Terminal command.

Sudo defaults write /System/Library/Launch Daemons/ com.apple.backupd-auto StartInterval -int 900

The number at the end of the command is how many seconds it will be until the next backup occurs. In the example, I used 900, which is 15 minutes. If you want to change to a backup interval of 2 hours, you would use the same code and change the number to 7200.
