DD-WRT

I reflashed my good old Linksys WRT54G router two weeks back, from using Sveasoft Talisman to DD-WRT. I must say, I’m happily amazed with the quality of this firmware. And, it’s for free too :D (you have to pay a 20$/year subscription fee for sveasoft to have access to their firmwares)

Boys with Toys

YAY! My new toy got delivered today!

Doesn’t it look nice? It’s a Palm T|X, the latest model from the Palm factory.It’s charging as I type, and looks very sleek and futuristic with it’s black/blueish look :)

After my previous PDA (Palm Tungsten T|3) which has served me faithfully for three years, it’s a nice upgrade :)

I’ll post my findings in days to come.
