Making a Homepass out of a Cisco WAP4410n

My kids got Nintendo 3DS’s for Christmas last year.  It’s a fun little game unit.  One of the features on it is called Streetpass.  Essentially (once you turn it on) you put it in your pocket and if you pass by someone on the street with a 3DS you swap character information.  Nintendo calls them Miis.  You get to play a few mini games with the miis you collect. Other games as well use the streetpass feature to build extra playability into their games. Certain businesses around the world take part in what’s called Spotpass, (CORRECTION: This is a streetpass relay, spotpass gives you a blue light rather than green) which for my purpose is a stationary streetpass, it stores the Miis of the the last ten or so passers by and when you come along shares them with you, adding yours to the que as it does so. But I’m rural – which means aside from a trip to the not so huge city 1/2 hour north of me the chances of a street/spotpass are almost nil.  I’m not about to drive an hour round trip just to get a signal, but I do like to play with computer hardware.

After my reading I decide which one I wish to focus on that day for my daily devotional study.Then I start the passage guide and read the passage in a couple other translation (often all five of my default translations that Logos automatically opens).       I then expand my commentaries section, and move the commentaries to overlapping scripture windows for more space. I leave the info window open in case I want to look something up. Logos allows one to automatically place foot notes in Word and some other word-processors. One little trick I use since my devotional journal […]
