PRONET 101 E/U ADSL MODEM

This MODEM in India is actually TP-LINK MODEM 8810 and hence the firmware from 8810 can be applied to it.. Why do we require to do this..? Kunhar the importer of this Modem does not provide much information on the Firmware and the version available..

the firmware can be obtained from the following TP Link Website



If used in Hardware V1.. it will slow down the UI Webpage.. :(

using PHP and PYTHON on the Synology NAS for Advance Config of Devices on the LAN

Its been a while since i have been tinkering with idea to use the PHP for advance configuration of Routers, NAS and any device on the LAN / WAN using http1.1 on Port 80 forwarded to Synology NAS Webserver..

am able to achieve the following
1. reboot the NAS, Router etc based on Events in the Cameras
2. Reconfigure the NAS, Router based on specific Events

the use of PHP is because its commonly available on most NAS having a webserver and would not require any further configuration.. and the PHP pages can be pulled through simple URL http://192.168.1.40/reboot_router.php or http://192.168.1.40/reboot_nas.php

AppleScript to Sort the Address Book and Clean the Mess

My Old post to sort the Address Book on MAC for Duplicates and Corrupt Data was with AppleScript which was not quite efficient and fast, hence rewrote the whole script.

The Script does not delete nor modify any data, hence its safe to use, however i suggest that you should backup the database. the "SortAddressBook Advance 2.0.1RC" does the following

1. Make the following Groups based on Names
"USER Duplicate Names" --> all Contact are sorted on the full Name ie First Name + Last Name
"USER Duplicate First Name" --> all Contact are sorted on the first Name
"USER No Last Name" --> all Contacts with No Last Name are sorted
"USER No Names" --> All Contact with No First and Last Name
