House Tyrell for the win!
Unless we are specifically looking for a business class router I wouldn't recommend them for home or office use. Simplicity is better.
Not a Linksys fan huh? =b
About sums up how I feel about Zyxel and D-Link.
My Linksys E4200v1 has amazing range in the 2.4Ghz band and really fast throughput. Its also one of the best performances available on the 5Ghz band. Linksys's has the best stock firmware, IMO. Its also easy to mod with 3rd party firmware. Its a favorite on my haunt on notebookreview.com and can be picked up for $90 refurbished. Unfortunately the v2 which is the version currently available used a different chipset and has lesser performance. Great deal for a top notch router however.
Other great routers I commonly recommend are the TP-link TL-WDR4300 ($85) or on a budget its little brother the TL-WDR3500 ($45). I hear great things about Asus routers but I already told ya'll how I feel about that company. I also hear great things about Netgear but have yet to own one.
I'm not a Linksys fan at all. I haven't had any issues with my WNDR4500. I ended up having to put my former Linksys on a timer so it would reboot every night. D-Link is pretty much a joke. I've heard good things about the ASUS routers as well, but I'd rather have a Netgear or Linksys.
-shrug- I've never had a problem with my Linksys router but then again I've never had a problem with any of my routers needing to be rebooted all the time. I have more problems with range and fluctuating speed. This is where my Linksys shines. Now the E3000 was notorious for overheating but that is not an issue that carried over to any of Cisco's current line.
My laptop's desktop:
Remind me to upload the photo of Ruby going to see Santa. Incredible.
I'll remind you Garth.
Whoa, had that weird dream again! Except Cut was replaced with Fives! We were in a dead over grown field. Worse the field was on fire. Yet through the smoke I could smell gardenias somewhere. There was that big glowing portal behind Fives, dunno what's through it. I thought it was the way out. Except this time he told me it was pointless to go inside it and he was pissed I wasn't listening. I asked him if he could save me from the fire and he ignored the question. When I tried to go threw it and pass him, Fives blocked me and eventually socked me in the gut so hard I collapsed. I got punched by a clone! Cool. But it was kinda a nightmare. One of my favorite TCW characters in a nightmare? Hmmm... to dreammoods!
Fire/ wildfire/ burning
Hmm... alot to interpret and alot of conflicting stuff.
That only happens to me when I eat to much before bed.
On a related note, I'm drinking eggnog, and I think I overdid the bourbon.
I'll seek professional help tomorrow...
I would have to keep a dream journal to remember mine. Every now and again there are some that I can remember long term, but often I might wake up, think about how I just had a crazy dream, but then over the course of the day not even remember what it was. I do remember have a Star Wars related dream not too long ago, but beyond the fact that it was Star Wars related, I don't remember a thing about it.
I do have these reoccurring dreams where I'm back in High School and it's the end of the school year and the teacher is collecting the final assignment that my grade is riding on and I'm like "OMG I forgot to do it!" And then I abruptly wake up, and in those few seconds before it settles in that I graduated from High School in 2005, I'm convinced that there is some project that I need to do RIGHT NOW so that I don't fail.
That's always fun... "HOLY CRAP I FORGOT TO DO THE ASSIGN--- Wait... Oh... That's right. I don't go to school anymore *back to bed*
There was also the one I had a long time ago in which I was dreaming that for some reason it was raining in my basement and causing a flood, and I'm yelling up the stairs to my brother for him to come down and help me and I'm panicking. Meanwhile I'm not just yelling out in my dream, but I'm actually yelling out my brother's name while I sleep and he comes running into my room and wakes me up because he thinks something happened and that I'm screaming for help. And then I'm angry and confused as to why he woke me up when I was trying to sleep.
See you next year, guys.
@JackG: heh -- nice one
@TaradosGon: oh geez school dreams. I swear I'm going to be haunted with those FOREVER. I've been having them every night for years. Maybe I should get dream therapy with Seerow and hypnotize myself out of it or something.
I really need therapy. I have school dreams as well. Sometimes a mashup of school and work. I have had quite a few lately where I move back to NC and am just shopping for internet service. <<;
I keep a dream journal actually. I do it because my dreams are often very vivid and intrigue me. I used to have horrific nightmares virtually every night right up until I was about 19 and finally figured out why. I have alot dreams still and much as possible try to remember them so I can interpret them.
I have a few reoccurring dreams. I also experience dreams that seem to form a chain of events. I see fictional characters a bit at times. They come in waves. Its possible I'll have another few of them. Still I don't have many SW related dreams. Before I started TCW I had a dream with Obi-wan similar to this latest one. I'm up to four SW dreams since June 2011.
I think my favorite dream ever is still the One Man Band. Where a friend of mine rolled out on stage with a Dr. Suess like contraption and soon as he strummed a string on his guitar exploded.
Posting from 2013; get here guys, it's very nice and lively.
Happy New Year Jack.
T-minus 12 1/2 hours here. I'm going hiking and then I've got a bottle of this in the refrigerator with my name on it:
Nice, anakinfan. I had a bit of Johnnie Walker Red Label, which was nice. I live on a tourist island, so this time in summer it was packed; lots of people around. Great vibes and excellent fireworks.
Happy New Years everybody! I'm just starting my shift. When I get off its a few friends and two tubs worth of good fireworks fresh from SC. My neighbors are gonna love me tonight.
Today's New Years Eve will consist of showing a good friend of mine EpIII. It's the only one he hasn't seen. Followed by several hours of board games. Later at home, I'll ring in the new year with my mate and a pile of fried chicken and soda.
Then tomorrow...I sleep in.
Happy New Year to all!
Happy New Year everyone
Renaming thread to "Dr. Fisto's Couch"
Also, been freaking out my wife recently where I have this recurring dream where I babble incoherently/speak in tongues, and in the dream, it's some kind of defense against my mind being read.
I think dream is partially stolen from Fringe
Hike was awesome. There's a lake on the NC/SC border and I found a trail that borders the edge of it. There was one place where a tree got struck by lightning and had fallen across the trail about three feet off the ground; I debated limbo-ing under it but even after years of regular yoga, I'm not quite that flexible. I climbed over the top.
Weird dreams--I had one a few weeks ago in which I had driven halfway to work and realized I was in my workout clothes; sports bra, tank top, gym shorts. After thinking "yeah, this is going to fly about as well as a 747 with the engine removed," I got my phone out and called everyone on my contact list to ask "Could you possibly bring me some work-appropriate clothes?" To which the range of responses was, "No, go to Wal-Mart on your break" to "What in the hell have you been drinking???"
I can open up my dream journal and go on and on and on about tripping out dreams. PM me for some laughs.
And, its dead. I'ma open the chat for a while. http://lacwac.com/letschatlacwac/index.php
