American DJ Vizi Beam RX1 Moving Heads

American DJ Vizi Beam RX1 – Moving Head Rental Leeds – Lighting Hire

Elation DJs Ltd have just added some ADJ Vizi Beam RX1 moving heads to our hire stock. These are a discharge fixture featuring a Osram Sirius HRI 1R lamp which gives around 6000 hrs runtime. The fixtures are very, very bright and have very vibrant colours, they support 3 pin dmx in/out and also function sound to light although for the best performance should really be run on DMX. We have 16 of these features for rental ranging for 1 day hire or long term install. Below are a few pictures showing just what these fixtures can produce.

Laserworld TARM2 2.5 Watt RGB Lasers

TARM2 – 2.5watt RGB Lasers – Laser Hire Leeds & Yorkshire

So, after upgrading some of our Laserworld Hire stock of lasers we have to say we are very impressed with the new TARM2 range of their show lasers. The TARM2 lasers come in 2.5 watt, 4 watt and 7 watt variants. 0.8mrad at full angle mean great colours and beam over longer distances. Photos below:

Sony Xperia Z2 on Vodafone – Cracked Screens after charging…

Sony Xperia Z2 Cracked Screen After Charging – Vodafone

Hi Guys,

I have been a long time Samsung Galaxy S* user, I really like the galaxy range but decided for a change. After looking around I decided upon the Sony Xperia Z2 phone, it looked nice, ran great and had a decent screen. We ordered this phone through Vodafone Business. For the first few months things were fine, however one night I had the phone on charge and when it came to the morning I awoke to a cracked screen, I took the phone into Vodafone and they didn’t want to know at all, even though we were a business user, they said it had been dropped and said the only thing we could do was send it to Sony and see what they said. After a lot of emails and phone calls nothing got resolved, Sony said they would fix it but would require payment as they too said it had been dropped. I looked on the web and I am NOT the only one with this issue, Z2, Z3s all suffering from cracked screens with not much help from providers or Sony. I am sorry to say Sony will never sell me a phone again, their customer service is appalling as was Vodafone’s over this matter. I am now a Galaxy S6 user and am very happy.

Are other people having issues with Sony Z phones and cracked screens?

Shibby Tomato 1.28 Firmware – Asus RT-AC68U – PPTP VPN

Shibby Tomato 1.28 Firmware – Asus RT-AC68U – PPTP VPN

Hi Guys,

We have just installed a Asus RT-AC68U Router and have to say were very impressed. One area that could have been a little more in-depth was the firmware but, being open sorce firmware capable we decided to use Shibby Tomato 1.28. If you have tried getting a PPTP VPN tunnel initiated you will be like us and many others having issues, after trawling the web we found it:

Add this scipt below to the Administration/Scripts/Firewall section:

#!/bin/sh
iptables -A INPUT -p gre -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –dport 1723 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -i ppp+ -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -i ppp+ -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -o ppp+ -j ACCEPT

iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p tcp  014dport 1723 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp  014dport 1723 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT -i ppp+ -j ACCEPT
iptables -I FORWARD -i ppp+ -j ACCEPT

Then as is plastered all over the web just click save and thats it however thats not just it, you then need to go to the Advanced/Firewall section, and just click SAVE to restart the firewall services. Now all will be working… 🙂

It took quite a while to work this out and hop this will save others time, hopefully Shibby will implement this into the firmware so you dont have to manually do this, if you enable the VPN Server it should just work

**** UPDATE **** – 8-8-14 (02.33am)

We have just discovered that using this method that is widely talked about throughout the web opens up some security issues. As soon as we learn how to patch it we will post the solution here, in the meantime please do not use the code above.
