Republished: An Update on the SV650-S Charging/Ignition Problem

This was originally published on benscomputer.no-ip.org in 2009

As I mentioned previously, the bike was due into the Garage on Friday to sort out the charging problems that it seems to have developed. The symptoms also included a misfire at low revs (anything below about 2500 RPM).

Republished: Manual Database Retrieval Script for ZoneAlarm

Originally published on Benscomputer.no-ip.org Jun 2008 (Note: Attached Script still works at time of Republishing)

 

I was browsing the net earlier to try and find an answer to whether it is possible to manually download the ZoneAlarm Anti-Virus signatures. For those wondering why you would want to, standalone machines can't access the net to download the signatures, but are still subject to users with CD's and USB sticks. The easy way would be to update ZoneAlarm on a net connected PC and then copy the files from C:\Windows\System32\Zonelabs\avsys\base\ but if you don't have access to one, but do have a Linux Box then the script I have written will fetch the files for you (there are a lot, but they only add up to about 30 megs at time of writing).
