many of the "international" comp sci / engineering students prided themselves on beating the system (less time in college == less living expenses) by taking 24 or more credits per quarter. The way they did this was cheating their asses off by copying homework. Most of the work for comp sci / engineering was done in the labs so they'd rummage through the trash cans and look for other student's printed off drafts. :/

I have a VMs that runs windows xp and 98. They is specifically for old games that won't work on newer operating systems or have stuff like tages or securom. VMware player supports 3d passthrough so on a modern system those older games play perfectly without any frame drop.

Jesus... they run. They are. Coffee hasn't kicked in yet :/

This firmware has been available for several days but if you go into your router and have it check for an update (and you are running the one from months ago like I was) it still says you are using the current version.

I'll NEVER buy another ASUS router again. Their routers get such good reviews. I think it's time to just start running pfsense in a VM on my linux box and just be done with it. Just use the wifi on these shitty routers for wireless lan access.

Civilization, as we know it, will end sometime this evening. See SYSNOTE tomorrow for more information.
