Intro:

The initial setup wizard was very easy and quick and should get most typical users setup within 2 minutes including a reboot of the router. 

just type setup.ampedwireless.com into any browser and follow the extremely easy prompts!

The AP20000G has features like MAC filtering, WPS, access control schedules,etc...

The AP20000G features 4 guest networks per band (frequency) 

The AP20000G Also features USB storage  also which is extremely easy. 


Wireless performance (quick overview):
We are mostly going to do real world performance tests on the AP.

First test.... streaming video: I went outside around 175 feet from the AP20000G and I was able to stream YouTube videos with little buffer. This amazed me. Please note that there are 5 other networks near my house and my AP is placed at the opposite end of the house! HD did have some buffering at that distance, however it was actually tolerable. HD had NO BUFFERING/pausing at around 75 ft and pre- loaded 25% of a 35 min video is about 8-15 seconds. It takes 35-45 seconds or more for that much prebuffer to fill on my Netgear WGR614.  Very nice!

2nd streaming video test: was able to stream SD video and at a decent speed with little buffering at 230ft!!! AWESOME!!!!

HARDCORE COVVERRAAGE!!!!!

Gaming test: We setup an Xbox 360 with the built in WLAN controller on it and we put it through a few online games and it performs on par with the wired Xbox 360 that doesn’t have the WLAN controller! No lag related to the wireless at all even with other APs using the same channels and microwaves have been used close to it as well. AWESOME!!!!

Browsing on all wireless devices is on par with wired throughout the house.

I highly recommend this Access Point so far!

STAY TUNED FOR A MORE IN DEPTH LOOK AND BENCHMARKS!!!!!!!

A quick music note....


mariah carey wastes her voice on R&B crap when she clearly doesn't fit that style in her vibe or her voice... it's like Charlotte Church wasting her operatic voice that would be perfect for trance on crappy folk-pop trash. "Brave new world" from Jurgen featuring her is amazing and she should have gone down that path and she would be right up there with Emma Hewitt or Kirsty Hawkshaw and been more famous and would have had excellent industry staying power.... folk-pop has the lowest staying power since you need to tie yourself up in imagery, lyrics, and lots of fan demands and stuff like that.... and be able to have a complete rebirth on every album as well as have commercial overhaul, expense, and heavy marketing... fans will hate you for re-using any of it so it has to be fresh, and be more quirky and more deep then the last album...

true EDM artists (not shit like gaga, skirllex,etc) don't need that to be successful. Hell some of them have no imagery.... no flashy covers, no flashy music videos, no quirky and storytelling lyrics, no fluff, just awesome music and an amazing journey you take yourself on... you choose your adventure with listening to EDM and you make the song your own... it's music for creators, not consumers... that's the reason some simple minded people can't latch on to it and hate on it becuase they need to be fed imagery , they need to be spoonfed a thought they need to relate to an artist on a personal level.... instead of creating thier own worlds and realities... this is why people that listen to EDM often can get themselves through some tough situations... they bring that power to themselves they create it from within.... and it's amazing....

Slinky Building!


THE ARK is a hotel by Russian design firm Remistudio and is meant to be self-sufficient. The transparent foil roof would allow light to reach plants inside, and the waste produced in the building would be converted into fuel. The cupola is meant to be energy-efficient, and its shell basement with cables and arches is designed to distribute weight evenly to make it earthquake- and flood-resistant.

Windows Server 2012 Screenshots and preview

I finally got access to test Server 2012 and I am mixed on it. However I used to not like metro so much but it's kinda growing on me.... However, I wish that MS let us have backgrounds on the Server 2012 start screen it kinda feels nekkid... LOL...

well here's my screen shots:



The server manager Interface is kinda neat, but the red makes it like you go POUND THE ALARM!!! or something.... LOL


And... here's the new task manager... pretty neat and I like the "heat maps"


The UI isn't that bad looking actually.... 

I just wish you can change fonts.... :-(

I will be writing more about this soon.

Future Trance 61 review

Future Trance is the most hyped up EDM compilation series yet, and I have a quick review for you!

First of all I will tell you a backgrounder on it. It's been going on since 1997, yes, that long, and started out as an underground trance compilation. The songs were very different then what appears on any EDM compilations today.

Now throught the years it started to get more and more mainstream, as it started to include styles like Hands-Up, House, and some electro. It did a good mix until about volume 49, and then from there started to get more and more house tracks. Fans on euroadrenaline.com were pretty furious about the new direction the series was trekking and had several forum posts about that and just about every volume a certain user by the name of trackhacker would tear the series to shreds.

Now this volume pretty much changed a lot and seemed to go back to it's roots.... sort of.... I'd say it's back around the late 30s vols and early 40s vols feel and that was pretty good. Some tracks kinda remind me of the 20s volumes.

I will also write reviews for the rest of the series like this as well. So far I think FT is prolly gonna do much better if they keep this up. I have a few suggestions:

1) make hands-up disc 1
2) make trance disc 2 and only trance
3) keep disc 3 as a mix disc

4) increase the dreamy trance tracks for disc 2
5) make the mix disc have hands-up first, then blend into dark trance, then go back to hands-up.

So there you have it...

Applebee's Review for Marietta OH 8.13.12


Applebee's Review for Marietta OH 8.13.12

Intro: wait time was longer then the last couple visits to the Vienna, WV location. The place seems to be a lot more busy after the Reply Guy thing. LOL. Reply guy is awesome!!! Anyways, it was about 10 minutes which is not too bad. Stuff moved along fast. Greeted nicely and attended to not as fast as the Vienna location, however still decent.

Order 1 and 2 (2 for 20 with Boneless wings and Chicken Penne for both of us) We both liked it. Adam (my husband) liked his better then the Blackened Rosemary chicken. I liked mine a lot too, however it could use a little more cheese! The boneless wings were good too, however the sweet and sour ones were way too spicy. So I tried Adam's honey BBQ ones and I normally hate hate hate BBQ anything..... well Applebee's really got something right if I really really liked mine! Extra points for that one! ;-)

Service: decently prompt but not blazingly quick like last 2 visits. Place was busy and everyone including me, Adam, sis, and other people online were having an off day so I am gonna forgive that. Our waiter still did a good job and we had the manager even check on us a couple times and his vibes seemed nice, but I can tell he was a bit tired... LOL. Understandable. ;-)

Overall I was gonna give it a 4.5 stars, however I will give the Marietta,oh Applebee's a 5 because they made me like BBQ again.... But I'm only gonna get their BBQ stuff everyone else's sucks. LOL.

Applebee's review for Vienna,WV 8.01.12


Applebee's review for Vienna,WV 8.01.12

Intro: seated and taken care of very promptly by a very friendly waitress. We got seating by the bar area. Got our drinks very fast as well.

Order 1 (mine): Lemon Shrimp Fettucinni. $11. it was very good and very filling I only was able to eat a third of it and it was very good. Full taste. Very easy to eat and the shrimp was big. Way bigger then olive garden. The alfredo sauce was very good and not like bob evan's sauce that tasted like the smell of elmer's school glue.

Order 2 (husband's): some kinda pasta and he loved it.

Service: Very prompt! We got our food within 10 minutes and it was good. She was very nice, laid back and very attentive.

Very good... easy 5/5!!!

Bob Evans review SS parkersburg WV 7.30.12


Bob Evans review SS parkersburg WV 7.30.12

Intro: took a bit to get seated, but greeted nice and our waiter was nice and casual and cool. Got drinks right away and set up much faster then the Lewisburg,WV location. Wifi worked better as well and was pretty fast.

Order 1 (mine): Salmon of some kind, approx $10. Very good and filling. Had great consistancy and very full taste. Came with a baked potato that also tasted much better then the lewisburg location. I'm pretty full from eating it and it was actually listed as a low-cal option so that makes it even better.

Order 2 (husband's): 3 cheese burger approx $7. it was good. Not much to report.

Service: Much better then the lewisburg, WV location. Very attentive and pretty friendly. Laid back and casual waiter and he was pretty smooth at operations. Not afraid and distant like the lewisburg waitress michelle was. Kept up my coffee very good. Cleared plates fast as well. His other tables seemed to be doing allright as well. This location is much better.

5/5 for this location. Great job.

review for Bob Evans Lewisburg,WV 7.22.12


review for Bob Evans Lewisburg,WV 7.22.12

intro:greeted coldly watiress was slow to get our drinks and get us set up. wifi wasn't working.


order 1: (mine): chicken alfredo. it tasted like the smell of that Elmer's white school glue! it was gross. got a change to a "portabella" steak that ended up making me sick a couple hours later and I threw up the meal when I got home. (as we ate here on the return tripe from Virginia Beach and I live in Parkersburg,WV) food rating 1/5


service:Michelle was the shift leader as presented on her nametag... she WAS NOT SHIFT LEADER MATERIAL. She was very apathetic and inattentive, she let our plates pile up and the same with other table she was assigned to. She acted afraid to take our menus and looked unconfident in herself. She also was very slow with refills, she did not sem to know the menus well, and her attitude wasn't very welcoming. We did get the order switched fine, however the resolution wasn't satisfactory, as I still got sick. service rating 1/5


Please note: Corporate has been notified. Called Guest relations at 7.23.12 at 1:23PM and they will address this.

overall rating: 1/5

recommended: NO!

cheddar's review 7.19.12 newport news,virginia


cheddar's review 7.19.12 newport news,virginia

Please note this is going to be a quick review, as my other cheddar's reviews generally cover this place well. Please check those out! ;-)

intro: long wait but worth it, this location has a different layout and system, it does not use the coasters that vibrate and blink, they call your name and party size on the intercom.

order 1 (mine) chicken alfredo: was very good. made enough for me to have 2 meals so I had some for later for the hotel.

service: Very engaging and freindly waitress and she was very prompt  and attentive as well.... extremely enthusiastic and you can tell she loved to work there.... I think her name was sherice.

overall 5 stars easy!

Virginia Beach, VA denny's quick review 07.20.12


Virginia Beach, VA denny's quick review 07.20.12

intro: greeted wierdly, wasn't seated promptly and there were plenty of empty tables, our table wasn't even cleaned off very good, took a very long time just to get drinks! wifi was there but it was filtered and blocked a couple tech news forums I visit that aren't malicious or that bad. took 12 minutes to connect as well

order 1: mine: it was some kinda tilapia and it tasted good, it came with cheesy taters and they weren't all that great. food rating 3.7/5
order 2: sis: burger without bun (gluten intolerance) it tasted good to her but not the best it could have been. food rating 4.5 /5

service: very slow and disorganized, everyone there was, nobody was taking care of the diners and a mom next to use got restless and her kids were crying becuase they were hungry and thirsty and she took 20 minutes to get thier drinks and the kids were screaming loudly. I felt sorry for them becuase I was equally as frustrated at the lack of service. If I were those kids I would cry too! everyone was unorganized and they did not seem to care so much. they got my sister's drink order wrong and my coffee was icky tasting. service rating .5/5

overall rating: 1/5 if I have to have a star and .5/5 if I didn't have to have an even star rating. pathetic and one of the worst places I've ate at. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU AVOID THIS PLACE!
