Definitely recommended reading when you get a chance. Learned a ton about Wireless Security. If you're on Fios definitely make sure the Verizon Router they give you is on WPA at least, by default they come with WEP turned on and basically broadcast the password inside the packets it sends out in broadcast.

. I flashed my router to it a month or so ago. The web interface is so much smoother than the factory firmware. Going along with the wireless theme, I got 2 netbooks yesterday, well ordered them at least. Got a pair of these bad boys:
Got 2 spare Corsair 4gb DDR3 so-dimms, an OCZ Vertex 30GB SDD and an OCZ Vertex 2 60gb SSD. I plan to swap out the 1gb sticks and 250gb 5400 drives in it with those parts, should bring the performance up considerably. I plan to do extensively benchmarking before and after so everyone will know how each benefited and what percentage. I definitely will be wiping the Windows 7 Starter Edition for OpenSuse. They should be both come Tuesday, latest Wednesday so stay tuned!
