Firefox - the best browser.

We so much of web design depending upon which browser you use to. I was glad to see the improvements in Firefox 3 I use it a lot for gmail and boy does it fly 53msec to load the next email. Compare that to IE7 which comes in at 423 msec almost 100 times slower. Good thing Vista only works on high horse power machines. My UMPC doesn't me just fine and look and the battery life diffence. Thanks mozilla for creating a standards compliant web browser!

DD-WRT Routers

With version 24 now available and Staples having a sale on their routers I thought I would whip down to Staples and buy a couple. Little Al and me did just that. Arriving back I find that the D-Link WBR-2310 and the D-Link WBR-1310 are part of the Known Incompatible devices. Anyone up for a trip back to Staples? I need to find something that works on DD-WRT software. Well I made it back from Staples and got the dd-wrt software working on the Linksys WRT160N I set it up to work like a Repeater Bridge. If Cisco would allow me to do this with their default software I would be a happy man. Please do this at home.
