  • WordPress 2.0 and a Happy New Year

    First of all Happy new Year 🙂 This year started with the release of WordPress 2.0. WordPress is going better and better. The 2.0 version is slick and you get a WYSIWYG editor among the changes.

  • Inverting the F Lock

    Some times Microsoft does good work on hardware. That is keyboards and mouse. The problem is that they do it in their own way => Friendly for the user. Or as they think that is friendly 🙂 On the office keyboards the Function keys has been replaced by functions eg Help,Undo,Redo,New etc. But i don’t…

  • Sveasoft Talisman Firmware

    Yesterday sveasoft released their new firmware. A lot of changes if you compare it with Alchemy, and a really nice interface The only problem is that pppoe doesn’t work. I cannot get an IP from the DHCP server. Probably they will fix it in a day or two. I will keep you posted.

  • openwrt on WRT54GS

    I found some time today to test the openwrt (again) in my WRT54GS. I desided to drop the sveasoft firmware.
