Hmm. I should put something in here. Something fascinating, and both witty and insightful. Otherwise noone will know how interesting I am.

Oh well, whatever. Some other day, maybe.

comment Accessing 192.168.1.1 sluggish (occasionally fails) in Linksys WRT54G router
@user22105 No clue. I would blame cheap hardware requiring more software control combined with low RAM, but that's just a guess.

@user22105 My own (8MB model) hovers between 92% and 97% Used, even after a power cycle.

Out of curiousity, does accessing the management GUI still take forever even after unplugging and plugging back in? I have similar problems with my own WRT54G, but only after it's been running for an extended period; it works flawlessly (for a while) after power-cycling.

comment Is it possible to run graphical applications such as Firefox without installing a desktop environment?
Note that there are text-only web browsers available (e.g., lynx) which don't require a desktop environment or any of the X libraries. Useful if you only need web-browsing capability, rather than graphical web-browsing capability.

comment Where did the “Get” button go for downloading podcast episodes in iTunes?
Hitting ENTER works as well. Much faster for long lists, just keep hitting DOWN and ENTER until you reach the end.

comment Recover data from hard drive with partitions (but not most data) overwritten
afaik, the difference between quick format and normal format is whether or not it checks for bad sectors. zeroing out the disk is generally not done unless you use some sort of file shredding program.

comment Why would sound suddenly stop working on Windows 7?
Did you uninstall the old sound drivers before installing the new ones? Sometimes that makes a difference when just installing new drivers over the old ones doesn't.

He was very proud of the fact that it could survive being thrown across the room, but he wouldn't let me do that either.
