WRT54GS & Lingo

Well, I removed some of the wiring nest...and worked in the WRT54GS.

Everything went smoothly...the only tweaks afterwards mainly involved getting PRTG and WallWatcher working again.

With WallWatcher, the WRT54GS seems to log way more. Or perhaps the old router was just ignoring more. Though it could just be interface that logging is done at. One thing I started seeing was all the broadcast noise on the WAN interface. Guess it explains why the activity light on the Cable Modem is on solid, even when I'm not doing anything.

Woohoo ... faster downloads

Got a letter that RoadRunner speeds in my area have been upgraded. So I rebooted the modem to see...and does get close to 5MBps/512kbps....up from about 3MBps/512kbps.

Though the Poopli freak that I really isn't that much of a boost. Though I still intend to ditch the landline for VoIP at some point this year.

Checking out Spam Bully


Found out the SPAMAssassin settings are rather limited on my new hosting provider. Having it on results it too many false positives and no options for tweaking/training it.

The old provider had a .spamassassin/user_prefs file in the home directory of the shared account where I could control things. Though the new provider allows you to control which accounts are filtered by it. Useful, because I've had problems with eBay sellers not being able to reach me after an auction because of my spam filter.

Anyways, I've opted to not use it, because of the high level of false positives.

Select Comfort 5000


Well, I took the plunge and ordered a Select Comfort 5000 Queen size bed to replace my almost 20 year old Queen size bed.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
