Since the machine running KnoppMyth had to be near the TV and cable input, and because that spot was far from the router, I decided to get a wirless lan card instead of running an ethernet cable into the living room.
Here’s a shell script to automate the steps:
wget http://www.ralinktech.com.tw/data/RT73_Linux_STA_Drv22.214.171.124.tar.gz tar xzvf RT73_Linux_STA_Drv126.96.36.199.tar.gz cd RT73*/Module cp -v Makefile.6 ./Makefile make all cp -v rt73.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/usb/net/ mkdir -pv /etc/Wireless/RT73STA cp -v rt73.bin /etc/Wireless/RT73STA/ dos2unix -f rt73sta.dat cp -v rt73sta.dat /etc/Wireless/RT73STA/rt73sta.dat insmod /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/usb/net/rt73.ko depmod -a echo "rt73" >> /etc/modules
(I found out later that the same drivers can also be obtained from the Edimax web site)
Next (and last), I added these lines to the /etc/network/interfaces file:
iface rausb0 inet dhcp wireless-essid [...] wireless-key [...] auto rausb0
VCs usually list job openings at their portfolio companies, so for NYC, check out the Union Square Ventures jobs page.
Silicon Alley Insider also has a jobs page with some startups listed.
And you can use “Reg D” to find out about startups which have just gotten funding that may not be listed anywhere else.
Also, even though it’s not a jobs board, you should subscribe to Jay Sulzberger’s mailing list to find out about tech events in NYC.
