Will a tuning unit improves my diesel engine?

No idea really .. will test it out. I have been toying an idea since long ago but due to the prices for the tuning boxes .. it was last in my to-have list for my Triton. Somehow, somebody in motortrader forum brought back the old issue, so .. as usual, me .. with the 'hantu' ebay .. looking for a good bargain until I found one seller which is selling a Vector Tuning box and the price is .. guess what.. half the price they're selling it here locally. Further enquiries and found that the seller is one of the main distributor for Vector and I was well assured that my Triton engine is in the list .. so .. ordered one unit end of last week and now waiting for it to be delivered.. hopefully passes the customs with no problem or otherwise, I need to go down to KLIA once again.

I will update this blog with latest info .. as and when I receive my box.

Where should it goes to? Here???


DONE! Power? What power? haa..haa.. see, I'm not good in evaluating stuff .. they might sell duff box to me without me knowing it .. wondering, the thingy has microprocessor isn't it? Does the cable provide power to it? What kind of communication it has over the connector? I guess since it has only three wires, it might be serial stuff.. and it should be learning my driving style now.. should I push it hard or go soft?

Update 18/06/09:

Had a go at MRR2 this morning .. It might be just my feeling .. I feel the car is lighter, a slight push of throttle and it zooming ... and going from 80 to 110km/h is spiffy .. ah.. might just be the feeling of the RM spent on the vector made me think that suddenly my Triton has more power to it.. oh.. one other thing, sorry for those drivers that I cut into this morning .. suddenly I couldn't stop the Triton from zig-zaging in the traffic..

Configuring TechniColor TG784N V3 (Maxis issued broadband router) to use different DNS servers

Previous write up deleted. It seems to change the DNS servers in as shown on the status, but it does not really work.

Check the following website, this seems to work:

This can be done from the WEB GUI too, go into the following configuration path:

In my example above, I'm using paid service unblock-us instead of google public DNS servers.

Raspberry Pi + svxlink = Low power echolink node

What is the easiest way to get echolink node up and running on raspberry pi? Surely, get a premade image which has everything inside. I've created one image which can fit into 2GB SD card for this, just follow the following steps to get it up and running:

For hardware, you need to have the following:
Raspberry Pi for sure, with a minimum 4GB SD cardA USB echolink interface, can be commercially sourced or DIY. There are many DIY schematics out there that you could follow.  Here is the configuration on how to get the things working together, courtesy of website:

For software:
Download the following prepared image from google drive, it is based on raspbian-2015-02-16 image and has pre-installed svxlink-14.08. raspi-wheezy-svxlink.img.zipUnzip the file and copy it to your SD card using the following instructions that can be found here.Boot up the RasPi, if you do not have an HDMI monitor, you may want to access the RasPi from your terminal emulator (putty or the like), connec…

Debugging DMEE

I've come across many posting on the Internet (via google search), people asking on how to debug a DMEE for payment program. One of the few suggestion was to create a user exit just before the node that we would like to debug and put our breakpoint there. It seems that SAP has built-in this feature without needing us to create a user exit (available in ECC 6, have no idea if this is available on prior releases). Here is how you can put your breakpoint without any coding.

1. Display your DMEE tree using transaction: DMEE_DEBUG.

2. Click on the node that you would like to debug.
3. Go to conditions tab, you could see the Set Breakpoint button. Click to set.

4. Run the SAPFPAYM and specified the payment run date/id, payment format etc. SAP will stop at the node which you point your breakpoint at, as in 2.
5. To remove your breakpoint, just run the DMEE_DEBUG again, there is an option to delete all own breakpoints or all.
