Update your Linksys router with Sveasoft's firmware: "In its GPL Code Center, Linksys provides the source code for most of its devices. However, unless you're a programmer, this isn't going to do you much good. What can help you out is what Sveasoft has done with that source code. Based in California, this company has taken Linksys' source code and created new versions for replacing factory firmware. Basically, installing this firmware takes a limited functionality $50 consumer router and adds many of the features of an enterprise router. ..

Sveasoft actually sports three different families of firmware: Sveasoft firmware for Linksys WRT54G and WRT54GS routers, Alchemy firmware that works with a list of routers (which is free and adds a lot of the features listed above), and the aforementioned Talisman firmware."

Steve Lacey: How I put a podcast together: An audio gearhead takes on podcasting and shows how to do great sound. "My setup is way overboard. A cut down version of my setup with just Cubase, the E-MU 1820 and the Rode NT-1A microphone would work perfectly and give you great results. " [Thanks, John.]  8:32:56 AM  permalink

Tactical iraqi: Self-paced language learning based on interacting with a computer game.  "Tactical Iraqi is based on the Tactical Language Training System (TLTS) researched, invented and developed at the Information Sciences Institute of the University of Southern California.  TLTS rapidly teaches basic spoken conversational skills in languages that few people learn because they are considered to be very difficult.  It is a self-paced system that gives people enough knowledge of language and culture to carry out specific tasks and civil affairs missions"  10:36:18 PM  permalink
