I have two WRT54Gs and a WRT54GS (note punctuation) and have run tomato on one of them. But one of my Gs failed and the other one is very short on flash so DD-WRT actually has more capabilities on it. Next time I see some at a yard sale I will be able to check the router database as I finally have mobile internet access, albeit EDGE only. At least it's cheap and on-demand.
I'm confused like you, if you're going to use SQL, use it properly. If you want a big flat file of data, just write it out as a pickled Python object or something.
Properly normalized data with properly maintained indexes is efficient and fast despite the people with crap drives trying to prove otherwise.
say your roomate getting a partial mapping of what you look like naked under a door.... not quite as cool....
Naked under a door, I look pretty much like any other very tall, slightly overweight, going-on-middle-aged man with his clothes off and with a door on top of him. I don't see how confirming that I look vaguely like that is a major threat to my privacy.
the FBI having a general mapping of what rooms you go in in your house, how often...
Literally can be garnered from outside your house with fancy thermal optics and/or radio waves.
Actually the English spoken in the US is much closer to the "original", meaning the common dialect spoken on both sides of the Atlantic in the Colonial Era. I used to think American English was a slightly bastardized version of English, but it's just the opposite. It's really fun to tell that to anyone who is English.
The best part is that they drifted so that they would sound less like us. Talk about sour grapes: "Well, people sound stupid when they talk like that anyway, so now we're talking like this." Then they go on to use their new accent to tell us how to handle gun control.
Obviously they're hoping you'll install a UPS. That's expensive for them to do everywhere.
Minecraft costs 1/5 of what a AAA titles does
yet kids play it for hours on end. Dozens of times longer than they'd spend on a AAA title
They might well replay the AAA title. Or just their favorite level. Most kids have a much higher threshold for boredom due to repetition. That's how the NES was ever a thing. I mean, Ninja Gaiden?
I guarantee you that the big publishers pressured MS in to the publisher requirement because it's a way to make sure that they remain the gatekeeper and games that give too much value for their dollar don't compete as effectively.
Microsoft may well have actually thought it was a good idea, so they don't have to personally deal with those unwashed indie developers.
The bottom line is, in this generation, for the console market they are targeting, MS does indeed have a virtual monopoly. Almost every console gamer I know has an XBox 360.
Oh, every console gamer you know. So like, that's scientific and stuff.
Either way, even if they change a month after shipping it, at least it started out better than Xbone.
What? Even if they fool me twice, I'm still not an idiot.
How many times does it take?
OK, so it's not the best comment ever, but it's a fact that you can't just go to one website for all the devices supported by some variant of tomato. The plethora of tomato variants means chasing around the web to figure out which flavor[s] will even support your hardware, and if they have the features you need. DD-WRT (or for that matter OpenWRT) provides a single website which permits a quick compatibility check. DD-WRT in particular has extensive and well-indexed installation instructions for specific hardware. Tomato has none of that. If you don't think that's useful information, by all means, mod this comment "Overrated" as well.
But If I sign up for service just adequate to meet my needs any additional load (even if slower) is going to be felt.
Virtually no cable providers are selling the amount of service that their equipment can provide. There is headroom.
And if you happen to have an apartment next to a bar or popular restaurant you can expect your router to be busy all day with the overload of connecting and disconnecting smartphones and people soaking up your bandwidth.
Oh noes! It will have to handle packets!
so you want me to host their equipment, maintain their equipment, protect their equipment, power their equipment, and house their equipment
We're talking about the cable company. They already own the equipment, so nothing is changing. Nice attempt at relevance, but you missed the mark.
Tomato or open-wrt are the only firmwares worth using.
I don't like how infrequently tomato gets updated, or how fragmented the tomato landscape is.
I beg your pardon, but it looks awfully like you're currently trusting a router you purchased yourself. Are you sure that you are entirely sane?
Give me a little credit, I'm running dd-wrt and I keep it updated.
Seriously, someone who's ben arund as long as you apparently have should know better than to think that consumer equipment of all shapes and sizes don't have similar backdoors built into them
And that's why I'm running a FOSS firmware image. I buy routers at yard sales, then bin or resell the ones that won't run dd-wrt or tomato.
I beg your pardon, but it looks awfully like you're currently trusting your ISP's router. Are you sure that you are entirely sane?
