I recently bought the stack of Aaron's Cisco stuff he had for sale last week, mixed it up with some parts I had (ram, AC power supplies, flash.. )
to get 2 "seems to be working so far" 2600 series routers with some ethernet jacks to play with. That's what I needed. :)

This leaves me with a combination of what I had left from him, plus a bunch of other stuff I have including a 7200 series (w/DC power supply) w high speed serial interfaces.. some bare bones 2500/2600's (some ac and some dc power supplies and some with ram and flash, a "Cisco Content Engine" a "Cisco Terminal Server", 2 110-48volt power supplies, 2 VPN3002-8E (VPN clients with 8 ports ethernet switches), an 1800, a couple of 800's w/ISDN interfaces.. a 2500 with 2 T1 interfaces.... and.. and.. cables.. and...

and 2 industrial rack mount 110volt to 48vdc power supplies.

A Lucent/Ascend MAX with a bunch of POTS (FX-0?) ports

A couple 24 port ethernet 10/100 HUBS.

All in unknown "as-is" configurations and status.

All heading to an "art project" the end of next week if no-one
wants any or all of it. Need to clean out the NOC shelves
and donations are gladly accepted.

Or: you can have it ALL for $200.00 cash.

Or: will trade for ________  (something interesting and/or useful)

Where is it all?

535 Chestnut Street, Suite 243 (the old IBM building)
Chattanooga Tennessee - 9-5:30 - just stop by,
Earlier/Later hours can be arranged.

Please E-Mail me off list:  meuon-Mpm6NNcAuABWk0Htik3J/w@public.gmane.org  or call: 423-648-4184 x200

backup/salvage scratched encrypted DVDs

One of my daughter's DVDs is garbling and freezing near the end when
played in a STB DVD Player. I have tried to rip it using the most
effective (six nines) tool I've ever seen which is
http://ripitapp.com/ and it gets to 99.1 and hangs. I'd like to try
some form of geeky Linux rescue. I don't know much about what ever it
is that encrypts a DVD, so please be gentle. I'd like copy the disc
with ddrescue, then decrypt that. This thread
http://ask.metafilter.com/68265/But-its-just-a-little-scratch makes it
sound like ddrescue will copy the disc decrypted if it is opened with
libdvdcss first. That sounds like crazy talk and if true means I know
even less about the encryption voodoo than I thought.

Linux users are constantly using machines in unintended ways. What
have you done to salvage (not pirate, I don't even want to know about
that) a DVD?

[OT] Roadrunner?

Hi all,

I've been a bit of a lurker for a while now, and I have an OT question you all would most likely know something about.

Does anyone have experience with Roadrunner ISP? I had the impression that it was basically a quasi-high speed variation on dial up, leveraging server-side caching and compression for the most part, but I can't find anything to confirm this. It's apparently a cable ISP like any other (albeit owned by AOL-Time Warner). Is there any reason I should avoid them like the plague, the way I would anything else with the letters A, O, and L, in it?

My real question is, if one were stuck in the woods for a while with Roadrunner, could one function?

Matt

Re: backup/salvage scratched encrypted DVDs

Maguire's makes a plastic headlight lens restoration kit (any auto parts 
store - bottle of polishing cream and a buffer for your drill) that 
didn't do a thing for my decaying headlight lenses but almost completely 
eliminated a playback-ruining scuff on one of my daughter's CDs.

My daughter has RoadRunner in Charlotte. My take is that you could do much 
worse than do business with them in general. I'm not real impressed with 
the tech support people I've had to work with, but  generally we get 
things fixed in the end.

My Opinion? (And worth every cent you paid for it...) You should be able 
to function just fine if you keep your expectations modest regarding 
support personel.

All the usual disclaimers apply - IMHO, IANAL, YMMV, and so forth.

Yes, you should be able to use ddrescue to copy it. You can then burn
that copy, no need to decrypt. Linux dvd playback software will use
libdvdread to access the disk. libdvdread will use libdvdcss to decrypt
the content as necessary.
