Comment Re:LinkSys (Cisco) sucks Microsoft balls (Score 1) 189

I was hoping someone else would respond to you since it has been a year since I tried OS's other than DD-WRT. I have stayed with DD-WRT since it has the features I need and is reliable enough. I have had to do a 30/30/30 reset more than once while trying to setup a couple different routers (older and newer LinkSys's). The settings will appear correct but something will not work the first time. I don't know which forks have improved that aspect of reliability. Up-time isn't perfect, but good.

Backdoors and more... I recently purchased a LinkSys and could not access the web interface unless a Windows machine was present on my network. I verified this my starting a Windows VM on the linux host where I was running my web browser. With the Windows VM running, my web browser (linux) could access the LinkSys. Without the Windows VM running, my web browser (linux) could NOT access the LinkSys. Once I got DD-WRT installed, problem fixed.

The government influenced the Chernobyl design to induce a meltdown and create The Zone for investigation of anomalies. To Duty, this was a terrible disaster, except for the thrill of shooting mutants. To Freedom, it opened opportunities for exploration, and the thrill of shooting mutants. To the government and the military, The Zone provided an area for secret research, and an abundance of mutants and STALKERs to shoot.

Imagine the frustration of those who have a clear concept of how things should be done and everyone else, even those who claim to agree, are f-mucking it up. Were I not required to work cooperatively in an office with people, I would have no excuse for patience and soft words. Were it the situation that I was on a tirade and you were suggesting that I was "over the top," I would group you among those who don't get it. But, I'm not doing that..we're kewl here....Hi-5!

Describe the issues to your supervisor in terms of extra time and difficulty to maintain, and/or poor performance and production bugs/issues. If the code works well enough and nobody has to maintain it, then management wont care. It becomes a simple matter of how much you care about the "sanctity of code." Back to the question... Rewrite a portion of the code to show how much better it can be.
