Brother HL-2240

Solution:  Use the gdi drivers

Backstory:

Error trying to connect to Brother HL-2240 over the network.  It is on a local computer plugged in USB.  It is shared.  I found it on the network but it said it couldn't give me the drivers.  So I used the disc and tried the generic 64bit one.  It failed.  Turns out it works if you use the gdi drivers instead.

Public DNS

Google released public DNS addresses that every one can use.

8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

I plan on using them instead of my ISP's and that way I can easily remember them no matter which ISP I am on.

System Clock

Whenever strange things have happened lately, it turned out to be because of the clock.

I was getting error for ssl certificates.  I finally read the error and it said that the certificate wasn't valid yet.  I had changed some things with the DNS so I thought that was an issue.  It turned out it was because I had set my date back 2 years to stop my evaluation copy of Windows 7 to stop rebooting.

I just had a problem connecting to my VPN because I had the AM and PM messed up.

 

Fun times 🙂

Boot without keyboard

In BIOS, Main->Halt On->All but keyboard.

Saved me from having a bunch of random keyboards plugged in all over the place.
