I could see it being like solar. Some people will have 3rd parties put panels on their house and buy the power at a reduced rate, and others will want to own the panels, but sell unused power back to the utility.

I could see owning my own car, and having it drive for Uber when I'm working. I'd know (for the most part) when I'd need it again, so I'd have it not make long trips just before I want to go home.

I was running OpenWRT on a WRT54GS, but moved and ended up with 50Mbit Comcast (crap) rather than ~2Mbit Sonic.net (awesome! but too damn slow due to distance from CO). If discovered the WRT was limiting thruput to ~12Mbit rather than the 50Mbit I had on the other side of it, so I'm using an Apple Airport Express with stock firmware until I can get OpenWRT setup on a Netgear WNDR3700.

And I thought I was way behind the times when i was still running the WRT54GS. So I guess my question is, is anyone still running that ancient hardware for their main connection?

I have yet to see any problem, however complicated, which, when you looked at it in the right way, did not become still more complicated. -- Poul Anderson
