Comment: WAN Optimization (Score 1) 572

Riverbed Steelheads can do this to optimize SSL traffic for WAN optimization. While this could be considered a good use of MITM for a company, and I wouldn't exactly fault a company for wanting to optimize their SSL traffic on their own WAN. It's still kind of scary prospect if a company's riverbed setup were ever to be "pwnd" by a "hax0r," particularly if it was set up wrong.

I've donated or sold most all my video game stuff over the past few years. As my IT career took off I've had less and less time for gaming. My PS3 is a glorified home theater system now. Of course not all is lost. My wife and I still have our NES and SuperNES, with the goal towards introducing our kids to what gaming used to be like. :)

The Adafruit catalog has a lot of really nice kit for people like me who are taking the plunge into DIY in order to teach ourselves more about hardware. Something that seems to be lacking is the IC list. I know the IC list is geared towards usage with the various platforms that you offer as well, but are there any plans to expand the IC list to include chips like logic gates, flip flops, etc?
