& a Linksys WRT54-GL router which is already up & running (though not yet with openwrt).

free software rules
at the office: a co-worker had two corrupted ms® office files; they simply crashed word when she tried to open them. booted a knoppix CD, opened them with openoffice writer, saved them again; & she was happy again. one more proof that free software is often better than proprietary stuff.

cpu frequency scaling & bluetooth
yesterday I activated cpu frequency scaling on my desktop box with the help of john goerzen's very fine tutorial.
(note to self: I guess I should try this on some other & more idling boxen, too.) oh, & I guess I have not mentioned yet that I bought myself an usb bluetooth dongle which basically works, too; unfortunately my communicator 9500 is not more cooperative via bluetooth than via usb.

I consider music on public toilets (e.g. in restaurants) a crime against humanity.
