October 2007


I found this great write up the other day on lifehacker.com while I was looking for aftermarket firmware upgrades for my wap54gx(unfortunently no one makes one). They have several really cool idea’s on improving your home wifi network. So check it out and get better use out of your wifi.

Whoa! Don’t know how I missed this! Looks like Microsoft bought a new browser. 😉

I love it! Now I can “Do more by doing less.”

I was at McDonald’s with the girls and we picked up some of the new monopoly pieces. I told them that usually there are lists available online to specifiy the lucky rare pieces so there’s really no reason to keep any of them unless you get a rare one.

So after a minute of searching here it is!
