A Typical Friday Moring

Im having a great morning this morning listening to the beta band and reading brian woods book demo - supping on a great single scource Rift Valley coffee

yesterday was great - think im 90% of the way to fixing my bricked wifi router - it did involve some scary parts including earthing out pin9 on the Eprom then rewriting the firmware with X-WRT

X-WRT is an open scource Graphical interface for OpenWRT - a fairly hardcore openscource instalation of unix for low level routers - which should give me access to a lot more of the routers functionality like Qos shaping in addition i can bump the strength of the radio signal to about 40mw from its measly 20mw which should make trying to get through the kryptonite walls a little easier.

Inshalla i can also get the router working as a Itunes server & reading an external unix USB Hdd (formatted as samba2)

Now i have the software running and functional with both the mac and the pony adsl router that qtel installed - i just have to work out how to write the final version to the Eprom.

anyway think its going to be a quiet techy day to day - may watch a film or two today - i have 300 & the lookout to lookforward to.
