Yes. I hate the wrt54g. I bought the damn thing because it runs linux, thinking a hacked firmware would be cool to play with some day. Of course, at the time, I wasn’t really playing with computers. Time goes by, and my wrt54g v2 locks up all the time. It sucks, Eric agrees and has been pushing me to try to get some Soekris 4501 or newer model. I’d love to. And get a wireless model. And one of the ones with three network interfaces to try to implement a QoS solution at work. I installed dd-wrt on the wrt54g, and that didn’t help for shit. It’s still locking up. Linksys does suck.
However, I really need to pay attention to finding a new place to live. I’ve found a couple industrial loft leads, but I think I’m just going to have to grab a room somewhere. Anyone want to house a geek for a couple months? I was thinking taking a floor in a telco hotel and converting it to geek apartments would be the fucking coolest thing ever, but alas, I’m sure there’s business reasons not to and it’s not like I have the money. On the positive side of things:
[00:44] <topher> hey btm, if you find a warehouse that we can rent/renovate and sublet, im up for leasing the whole thing
So that’d be perfect if it could be pulled off. I don’t know how one finds warehouses around here though. Aparently it’s hard. It’d be great to have the concept of the loft on the mature/technically progressive level it was always meant to be. But, pipe dreams probably.
Maddocks sent me a new hdd for my laptop that I haven’t been able to use for something like six months now. It’s a PIII/633 or something, which seems incredibly fast to me but only underlines how severly disconnected I am from reality.
Oh and, “Over the Hedge” is funny. And the starter solenoid in the suburban is acting up again. *sigh*.
