▶ Troubleshooting Help  - 
Hello friends. I'm looking for some ideas on how to best troubleshoot a severe WiFi performance problem. Here's the scoop: I have two CBs (Acer C720 and HP11 (orig)), both running dev channel (currently build 43), connecting to a NetGear R7000 router, and while my Android lovelies pull down about 50+ Mbps, my CBs can barely manage 1 Mbps. I've actually tried stable and beta channels for fun, but it's all the same. Obviously, there's some switch that needs to get flipped in my router config or in my CB WiFi config to make things happy, but I'm presently at a loss there. Does anyone have any similar experiences and/or ideas?

+Jim Dantin The odds that its a DNS issue when everything else works is slim to none. As far as disabling WMM, I just want to go on the record and say I wouldn't do it. If he checks the things I listed in my previous comment and reports back I think we will be farther along.

Red square, red dot. Two welcome companions from a trip to Las Vegas last week, an ever yummy doppio espresso and the stubborn but charming Leica X1.  This is by far my longest lived digital camera. It just keeps going and keeps challenging me to "try" when taking photos, sort of like a personal trainer.

Well, if it isn't the Duchesse De Bourgogne. What a wonderful, unexpected discovery.

Yeah, extremely unique. Funny thing is I'd ordered a St. Bernardus, and this showed up instead. Happy, happy accident.

Hi folks, here's a lone panel from "Good Evening Midnight," a lovely little Batman story. 
So, I grew tired of Evernote gobbling up background cycles on my Nexus 5 and deleted the app yesterday, but apparently the uninstall process failed to remove its Wear component. What I ended up with was  was an extremely annoying (as in frequently recurring) alert on my Samsung Gear Live, suggesting that I install the app on my phone...or else! :) Anyway, the only workaround I can find right now is to silence alerts for Evernote via the Android Wear app. But I'd like something cleaner and more permanent. Does anyone know how I might remove that pesky Wear component? Thanks!

Update: Sadly, all I had to do was go to Android Settings | Installed  and remove "Evernote for Android Wear." Should have looked there first.

Some photos from yesterday's Great New England Air Show. A long but very enjoyable day. Shot with an aging Leica D-Lux 4.

Funny to think of Kodachrome as speedy. :) Too bad the only place we see those looks anymore is through presets in PS/LR or in Fuji's X cameras. Ah, nostalgia.

Samsung Gear Live  - 
Hello friends. I hope this is okay...I'd like to offer my Samsung Gear Live up for sale here. I just picked up the Zen watch and of course don't need two smart watches. So, if anyone is interested in this very gently used Wear watch, it's yours for 90 bucks. All I ask is that we complete the transaction via PayPal with a registered mailing address. Note that the charger clip is in perfect shape (no man handling). Also, here's my ebay account as a reference (363 transactions with 100% positive reviews):

Just drop me a note if you're interested, and I'll give you my PP email privately.

What better time than a cool autumn afternoon to enjoy Dogfishead's 75 minute IPA.

Okay, I have very little experience with 'pumpkin" ales, so take that into account when I tell you that this Southern Tier Pumking Imperial ale is worth seeking out this autumn. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and of course pumpkin throughout. So so nice. Summer is now over!
