Submission + - Low-cost Router option for the home user

sirgoran writes: My old router (DI-625) died over the weekend. With the current economy being what it is here in the U.S. can the good folks at Slashdot suggest a good low-cost router that offers both wired and wireless options? I have the usual big package stores to choose from (Office Depot, Office Max, Best Buy). With money being the only limit, what are the best options to look for to provide the "best bang for the few bucks" I have.

Thanks for the help!

Submission + - Terapixel digital camera (paradoxoff.com)

sirgoran writes: "The camera is blue and sports some nice cartoon images of ducks, but at 5.5 terapixels who cares! It could be covered in Hello Kitty for all I care! Count this be the "must have" gift for the 2008 Christmas season? A short story about the camera can be found here.

"Unknown Chinese electronics manufacturer Penchan has quietly rolled out digital camera that undoubtedly will shake the market and smash down the current kings of the hill — Canon and Nikon. While the best (and the most expensive) professional digital cameras barely reached the 24 megapixel frontier, Penchan camera exceeds the 5 terapixel limit — more than five million megapixels. Moreover, I'm sure it's much cheaper than Canon or Nikon top DSLRs.""


Submission + - The Rip-off report (ripoffreport.com) 1

sirgoran writes: "This is an interesting situation. I have a client that learned that someone posted a less than kind note on a site that hosts complaints about businesses. My question is this. Have others had to deal with this and how did you remedy a clients reputation? In the case of my client, the person that posted the complaint at http://www.ripoffreport.com/ listed in her complaint tons of false information and misleading statements. While she, the complainer has been funding Nigerian 419 scams by sending them money (nearly all she has) and has said that "she would remove her complaint for a small donation". While the website she posted on (http://www.ripoffreport.com/) has refused to change or remove the complaint stating that they don't care if it's true or not. What would slashdot do if this happened to them or their clients?"

Submission + - The Daylight Savings Change

sirgoran writes: Is it just me or did all of the time servers in the US fail to change over to the "New" Daylight Savings time last weekend? I've queried servers at US Universities and US Military time servers and none of the return the correct Time. They are all one hour behind. Anyone any any idea why or what the deal is?
