Windows Vista Connectivity Problems – Connected to Undefined Network

So I just installed Windows Vista on my PC and everytime I start up, I don’t have any network connectivity.

It tells me the following:

Currently Connected to: Undefined Network

Access: Limited Connectivity

Any help or suggestions with this would be greatly appreciated. I’m running Windows Vista Business with an ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 – it’s got the ULi 1695 chipset with onboard ethernet.

Microsoft Xbox 360 vs. Sony Playstation 3 vs. Nintendo Wii

So now that all 3 next generation consoles have been released, which one is the best? Better yet, which one is for you? Hopefully this brief roundup of the 3 systems and their capabilities will help you decide. I hope you enjoy my rundown – please leave comments about your own experiences with each system.

Xbox 360
If you’re a man, this is the console for you. I owned the original Xbox and the Playstation 2 and there was no comparison in the game play – Xbox won hands down. I feel the same way with this next generation of consoles. The game titles offered for the Xbox are unparalleled… especially when you include the “only for xbox” titles:

  • Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3 (Release Date TBA)
  • Project Gotham, Project Gotham 2, Project Gotham 3
  • Gears of War – Read my brief review here

All I have to say about the Xbox is positive, the only negative thing I can think of is its size… but like I said earlier, “If you’re a man, this is the console for you.” If you think it’s too big or bulky, buy a Nintendo Wii, if you want to take it with you wherever you go, buy a PSP. Those of you who complain about the size of the Xbox 360 need to shut-up. I think the Xbox 360 is best suited for any man who loves action games… if you’re an RPG game… the next console is for you.

Playstation 3
Now I’m not saying that the Xbox 360 was a bargain, but I am saying that the Playstation 3 is way overpriced. I can’t believe that people are actually paying for this thing… it’s a glorified PS2… they just updated the DVD reader! 😉 In all honesty, it’s a decent system, but the graphical performance doesn’t even touch that of the Xbox 360. I might consider buying a PS3 once the Playstation 4 is released… then the price might be reasonable enough. Summary… RPG gamers… Warcraft fans… this is your system!

Nintendo Wii
Lastly we have the Wii. I have not had the chance to play this system yet, but I think this is more of a system for younger kids, or for those guys who want to get their wives or girlfriends into gaming. The nunchuck style control could prove to be really entertaining, however I’d feel like a complete retard standing in my living room at 1am by myself swining my arms around… the Wii is much better suited as a party system.

Some system specs below:

Clean Your House With One Finger – The Roomba Robotic Floor Vacuum

This is possibly the best invention I’ve ever come accross – The Roomba Robotic Floor Vac by iRobot. Visit the iRobot website and check out the entire line of home robots that help clean up around the house.

If you’re like me and hate vacuuming this is the product for you. This product has been around since around 2002, so why am I just now writing about it? Cause I just got one, and it has changed my life! The first time I ran it, it picked up so much stuff… and I vacuumed with before its first run, just because I wasn’t sure what its limits were. After its first run, I opened it up to see what it picked up and I was amazed. The amount of dog hair alone was incredible, beyond that it was absolutely loaded with dirt and dust. We’ve got a thick shag carpet and the Roomba has no problem running, and it even makes a smooth transition from our carpet to our tile floor in our kitchen.

Most of the time, I just turn Roomba on before I leave for work and I come home to a clean house with nice vacuum tracks in the carpet. Occasionally I’ll turn it on while we’re home and just find myself watching it scoot across the floor cleaning up for me. I find my self talking to it and cheering it on sometimes, “Come on buddy, get over here and clean under the coffee table.”

So if you’re looking for a good Christmas present this year for friends, family or maybe even for yourself… I’d definitely recommend the Roomba.

Erectile Dysfunction – Viagra, Cialis, Levitra – Treating ED

Erectile Dysfunction: Cialis, Viagra and Levitra to Treat ED


There are only three oral drugs approved by the FDA to treat erectile dysfunction: Cialis, Levitra, and Viagra. All work by increasing the flow of blood into the penis so that when a man is sexually stimulated, he can get an erection.

What Are the Differences Between Cialis, Levitra, and Viagra?

Cialis, Levitra, and Viagra work by a similar mechanism to cause erections. There are subtle differences in how long the drug works and how quickly it works. Levitra works a little longer than Viagra. They both take effect in about 30 minutes. With Levitra, the effects last for about 5 hours. With Viagra, the effects last approximately 4 hours.Google 300×250

Cialis works a bit faster (within about 15 minutes), and the effects last much longer — up to 36 hours in some cases.

If One of These Drugs Isn’t Effective for Erectile Dysfunction, Can I Try Another?

Because these drugs work the same way, it’s unlikely that you’ll have success with one if you’ve failed to achieve an adequate erection with another.

What Precautions Should I Take Before Taking One of These Drugs?

There are certain situations in which these drugs may not be safe to take. Before taking them, tell your doctor:

  • If you are allergic to Viagra or any other drugs.
  • About any prescription or nonprescription medications you are currently taking, including herbal and dietary supplements.
  • If you are scheduled for surgery, including dental surgery.
  • If you take nitroglycerin or a long-acting nitrate to treat chest pain. The combination of Cialis, Levitra or Viagra with these drugs can cause dangerously low blood pressure.
  • If you take alpha-blockers for blood pressure or prostate problems. The combination of Cialis or Levitra with these drugs can also cause dangerously low blood pressure.

In addition, always follow the directions on your prescription label carefully and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part that you do not understand. Take these drugs exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor. Do not take these drugs more than once a day.

Who Should Not Take Cialis, Levitra or Viagra?

If you have suffered from a heart attack, stroke or life threatening arrhythmia (irregular heart rate) within the last 6 months you should discuss other options with your doctor. It is also advised to avoid these drugs if you have uncontrolled high or low blood pressure or if you experience chest pain with sex.

What Are the Side Effects of Cialis, Levitra and Viagra?

Side effects are not common but they can occur. Side effects can include:

  • Headache
  • Upset stomach
  • Flushing (feeling warm)
  • Nasal congestion
  • Changes in vision
  • Back pain (with Cialis)

Call your doctor if you experience severe forms of these symptoms or if they do not go away after 4-8 hours.


Call your doctor or seek emergency treatment immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Rash
  • Painful erection
  • Prolonged erection (longer than 4 hours)
  • Fainting
  • Chest pain
  • Itching or burning during urination

Stop taking these medications and call a doctor or health care provider right away if you experience sudden or decreased vision loss in one or both eyes. A rare vision problem called NAION has been reported by a few men using these drugs. NAION (nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy) causes a sudden loss of eyesight because blood flow is blocked to the optic nerve. People who have a higher chance for NAION include those who:

  • Are over 50 years old
  • Smoke
  • Have heart disease
  • Have diabetes
  • Have high blood pressure
  • Have high cholesterol
  • Have certain eye problems

How Should These Drugs Be Stored?

These drugs should be kept in its original container and out of reach of children. Store them away from excess heat and moisture (not in the bathroom). Discard any medication that has expired or is no longer needed.
