by stazeii (#46782619) Attached to: Ask Slashdot: Which Router Firmware For Bandwidth Management?
Toastman Tomato, far and away. Tested DDWRT, Tomato, Asus-Merlin, stock Asus... none of them, except Toastman, did everything I needed (ipv6, dns, nat local redirect, upnp/nat-pmp, etc). Been using it for over 6 months, have never been happier with a home router. That said, pretty sure they haven't patched Heartbleed yet (supposed to be coming anytime).

So, are they going to give their chips porn names? Piledriver? Someone needs to clue these guys in... Just calling your stuff by construction equipment names doesn't make it cool. I'm a Mac user, and I still hate the fact Apple has latched onto this "let's call our products by their code names" crap. Guess I should look forward to the days of AMD's Cleveland Steamer processors.

Almost all of them I can get in digital form anyway, so MOST of them I glance at, then promptly shred. The ones I can't get digitally, I file in a file cabinet as I don't have a good way to digitize them at home (I could do it at work, but it's not that big a deal). How many do I actually file per year? maybe a dozen. Most of them are tax related. All the actual statements for credit cards, etc can all be retrieved digitally from the company.

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you've got it made. -- Jean Giraudoux
