Linksys WRT54G

I’ve just upgraded my WRT54G firmware to v3.03.6 HyperWRT_2.1b1 created by Timothy Jans. Previously, with the default firmware provided by Linksys (v3.03.6) the router frequently hangs. Now, it is rock stable.

As I search for the solution of the problem, I also stumbled upon a great site, dedicated to the particular router: http://www.wrt54g.com

Kudos to Timothy Jans!

Connection established

For the last two months, I have been struggling to access the Internet – my wireless broadband was not reliable. At first I thought that it’s because my area is at the edge of coverage (as the folks at Jaring warned me) but later found out in some forums that even users who live next to base stations are having very much the same problem. I don’t blame Jaring, maybe they’ll improve the service by time but I can no longer afford to wait. It was devastating having to wait 5 minutes for a page to load.

This morning, my Streamyx subscription is finally activated. I can say that now I will probably update my Internet stuff a lot often.

I recently found out a very nice tool from Google called Picasa – a simple but powerful image editing software. Coupled with hello, I can publish photos to my blog with just a few clicks! Storage of images is handled by hello/google/picasa so you don’t need to upload the images anywhere. Give it a try, I have already fallen in love.

Gong Xi Fa Cai & Happy New Year

It’s Tuesday, just finished updating the website. Gong Xi Fa Cai to all Chinese friends, and happy new year 1426 to all Muslim friends. Starting tomorrow it’s going to be a long holiday, and we’ll only be back for work on next Monday.

I will be staying at home to finish up an online project I have in mind, and maybe cleanup the house. Plus, I’m too broke to go anywhere! 😉
