I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you probably have more computers running fairly often than the average home? Those things burn up power pretty fast (as I'm sure you know: http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2005/08/why-estimate-when-you-can-measure.html )

The "Jimmy" answer was so highly upvoted because of one of the comments: sigh . . ...... :< – Jimmy Mar 1 '10 at 6:30 That comment had 1470 upvotes, by far the highest upvoted comment on the site.

@Dummyacctforsso @Keppla I never had that problem either, mainly because there's a dropdown in the login page that tells you you can log in using your facebook, twitter, google etc. accounts
Though I should mention that, according to reviews, that router is a piece of crap when running the stock-firmware, so this deal is for geeks-who-can-flash-router-firmware only :)
Easily the best deal on a router currently is the Belkin Share Max N300 for $22 at Expansys: http://www.expansys-usa.com/belkin-share-max-n300-wireless-n+router-231205 It runs Tomato (see here) perfectly, has two USB ports (!!!), N300 wireless, amazingly good specs for a commodity router (enough flash-ram to run the largest distro of DD-WRT!).... and it's only 22 freakin' bucks. I've been running it for several weeks now with no issues - for the first time, I can play games and download stuff while my wife watches Netflix, without negatively affecting my ping or her video-quality.
Your worst article ever. Where did he say he wants to learn coding for his job - why can't someone learn to code (or play guitar, or plumbing, or anything else) just because they want to learn?

Isn't most of this from 59 seconds? Also, I don't agree with 7 or 8 - the problem is "the herd" pays too much attention to brand name. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FL7yD-0pqZg

Glad you finally came around to our way of seeing things :)
"Listen to your community, but don't let them tell you what to do." But on the other side of the coin, don't allow this sort of thinking to proliferate to the point that you think you know better than the community. If nearly everyone in the community disagrees with your idea (example), then there's a good chance that this idea is part of that 90% (see lesson #1).
I'd be okay with the hellban, except for the part where no one knows. That sort of thing leads to admin-abuse, not democracy. What if mods could hellban a user, but that information is freely available to users with rep >= 3000. Those users (only) can view comments/answers by the hellbanned user, and can vote on them as constructive. If enough comments/answers are voted as constructive, the mod's hellban is overridden and the user is unbanned.

Er, you do realize that DD-WRT hasn't released updated firmware in a year as well? Also, and much more importantly, DD-WRT's QoS simply doesn't work, and never has. I've never used Tomato (my router doesn't support it), but I've heard of lots of people switching to it despite its smaller feature-set simply for its working QoS.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: cars need a better UI, and for exactly the reasons you've listed here (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/238177/worst-ui-youve-ever-used/2058751#2058751).
