Ok, today I received another WRT54GL (yah, too much money πŸ˜› ) and updated it to dd-wrt v23-SP1 instantly and is now (once again) powering my wireless network.

Yay! and thanks to Cisco/Linksys for that fine piece of hardware and to NewMedia-NET GmbH for providing such a great image for this hardware πŸ™‚

Ah, nearly forgot that: remember, never put the same IP twice in the static DHCP lease table, or dnsmasq is refusing to start (thus no DHCP/DNS)!


Ok, I know I’ve been absent the last 2 or 3 days (but only in the evening). I know Seemant πŸ˜› and I’m pretty sorry for that.
As some of you may know, I recently aquired a Linksys WRT54GL to replace my stupid, crappy Netgear WG602 (which, sorry for the words, is completly junk right now).

I managed to flash an dd-wrt image to it, right the first day I got it. But a recent update made it broke and now I’m completly unable to reflash the device (as in bricked).

And I’m about as lazy on the evening as hardworking on the day. So I ordered another one just yesterday. It should arrive today (hopefully) so that I get the damned wireless back.

The other thing currently is, that work is getting pretty stressing. Everyone (of my co-workers, mostly the young ones) is pestering me with his/her problems (and my main problem being, that I can’t ignore that, because I care pretty much for most of them). Plus provisioning is on my tail because of some damned provisioning processes.

Gentoo-wise I’ve recently come to know some of the #gentoo-dev people (yeah, thats you Chris and Christel) along with kloeri, kingtaco (heya :P), fox2mike and not to forget Joshua. I really think they are pretty amazing from a people POV πŸ™‚

Another thing I wanted to say: thank you Diego for the work you did with kde-3.5.4 (especially the prerelease thing)
I’m looking forward to September, who knows maybe I’ll meet one of the two in Munich (along with some other people).

Ok, I’m now finished with my morning tea (some nice green mate tea) and will now start eating my pudding πŸ˜› (white chocolate and normal chocolate with cream).

P.S.: christel, I really liked that poem, thanks a lot πŸ™‚

P.P.S: Chris, lol πŸ™‚ nice visual-ascii-faces πŸ™‚ I’ve not yet had the time to take a look (as in hear) your “songs” ..

P.P.P.S: tsunam, I hope you excuse me for not blogging about my puzzle yet, I promise its the first thing I’ll do on the weekend
