8/16    I have this extra ATT 2701HG-B AT&T dsl modem thing that I think
        has wireless.  Can I do something with it?  Flash it?  Install
        Linux on it?  Turn it into a laser?  help me out here.

8/20    I am looking for personal NAS... you know, an large intestinal
        harddrive that I can access data everywhere.  Idealy, I want be
        able to set up.  so it streams mp3 music as well, any recommendations?
        \_ USB 2.0 or GigE?

        \_ thinking about connect the harddrive to my router, and be able to

           access it outside the LAN.
           \_ I hear 'mediatomb' might be what you're looking for.
           \_ how's it supposed to deal with access control? Or is it just

              going to be anohter open WAREZ site?
        \_ apache + basic auth + hard drive?
        \_ "intestinal"?

8/20    I want to be able to streaming video / display photo on TV wirelessly.
        any recommendation on Apple TV alternatives?
        \_ What's important to you?  Divx?  Xvid?  HDTV?  Good UI?
        \_ Apple TV looks interesting. I'm wondering if I could connect
           a DISH directly to my Mac and stream that wirelessly to any TV in
           the house with a Apple TV box on it. It would suck if I was
           limited to iTunes as the source.
        \_ As I asked before, what features matter to you?  There's a lot
           of choices out there with different tradeoffs.

8/16    I'm watching the Flavor Flav roast.  Is Bridgette Nielsen's
        breasts real?
        \_ I dunno, is there only one of them?
        \_ Contrast: (
           This is probably before implants.

8/16    Why isn't motd.public copied to /etc/motd anymore? It still shows
        8/6. Also, what happened to motdedit?
        \_ /csua/bin/mtd is missing.  I'd write my own and stick it in
           there if I had magic permission to write to /etc/motd ,
           but I don't.
2007/8/16-20 [Finance/Investment] UID:47627 Activity:kinda low
8/16    We have a correction!  Dow is now 10% below the 14K high.
        \_ no we don't
           \_ The finance industry says it's the technical definition of
           \_ Wall Street says it meets the technical definition of
              a correction.
              \_ it is a correction if you say the 10% can be calculated off
                 the low value for the day
                 it isn't if you say the 10% should be calculated off market
                 i'm with the latter camp
                 \_ <cough>

8/16    Alright guys, this is it! The market will free-fall and the housing
        market will reach a new low starting November of this year. 1987
        all over again, just slow motion.               -swami #2 fan
        \_ Cool, then I can afford to sell my house and buy a new one.
