Installed Sound Booster, first thing: amplification by 500%, doesn't make sense. If I go anything above 100%, the quality becomes miserable. If it's on, the browser frequently crashes, if it's off, it never crashes... Definitely a no-go.

@sidran32: I disagree. A router needs an operating system, and it's only going to be as secure as the operating system, the weakest link. And if that OS was WindowsCE, then I'd rather not put a router in between. In that sense, the "always better" was probably the reason.

comment Windows 8 ISO image to USB stick?
It halfway works. If you want to create a 64 bit bootable stick on a 32 bit operating system, then you need to copy over a working copy of bootsect.exe into the install directory. Typically Microsoft... Can't even create a working USB-Bootloading tool...

@Raystafarian: Didn't have a free computer 'till today afternoon, so there was no point in trying.

Just copy the files over ? You mean the ISO image file, or it's content files ? What about the boot sector part ? Is the "make active" not necessary anymore with NTFS ?

comment Linux for 128 MB of memory
Well, basically you have to remove the gui, and then you can use mplayer on the command line at lightening-speed. :)) apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras. Maybe the debian netinstall iso would be more appropriate, just there it's more of a pain to get the multimdedia working.

Note that Safari is not any better than IE6 when it comes to security. Well actually, Safari is worse...
