Linksys WRT54GL Wireless Router Review Friday, Sep 22 2006 

As I mentioned in my Netgear router review, I had ordered a Linksys WRT54GL to replace it. I gotta say that after being a happy Netgear user for many years, a few months of using this router has made me a Linksys convert. Note: If you don’t care about messing with the firmware, you can save a few bucks and buy the WRT54G instead.

There’s really not much to say about the WRT54G/WRT54GL that hasn’t already been said in the thousands of other reviews out there, but I do want to mention a few things…

Transferring Domains Away From Yahoo Friday, Aug 11 2006 

This isn’t a post saying that you should transfer away from Yahoo.

I’ve read several posts claiming that you can’t transfer away from Yahoo, stating that they lure you in with the sale prices, then trap you so you have to renew at full price.

Just for kicks, I figured I’d try to transfer a Yahoo domain to my Directi account. I unlocked the domain and initiated the transfer on 8/6, which completed today. Not the world’s fastest transfer, but it was problem-free and they didn’t try to hold me hostage.

Adsense Notifier – Firefox Plugin Sunday, Aug 6 2006 

If you use Firefox and have an Adsense account, you probably already know about the Adsense Notifier extension.

Great extension. I didn’t realize how often I look at it until it was crippled by a recent change in the login procedure by Google. This was bad timing, as it happened at about the same time that Firefox released v1.5.0.6, making it look like it could be browser problem. Anyway, thumbs-up to the creator for quickly fixing it!

Gmail acting up? Thursday, Jul 27 2006 

Is it just me, or is Gmail being a pain today? Sometimes it seems okay, but other times I can login and read mail, but not delete it or do anything else without getting a “Your action was unsuccessful. Please try again.” error.

Update: Seems fine now–but I was getting that error w/different browsers & computers, so I don’t know what that was all about.

Netgear WGR614 v6 Wireless Router Review Friday, Jun 16 2006 

After years of reliable service, I figured it was time to give my old Netgear MR314 Wireless router a break, so I ordered a new Netgear WGR614 wireless router based on my good luck with the last one.

Although it works (and looks nice), it didn’t meet my expectations. At first, it constantly dropped the connection, both wired and wireless, requiring a reboot. This would happen a few times per day.

Well, it’s 6/6/06 and still no sign of Satan rising up from Hell.

iPower $2.95 Domains with Free WHOIS Privacy Sunday, Apr 2 2006 

Update: Like most things that don’t suck, this deal didn’t last forever. Luckily, the link will still forward to their $6.50 domains, which is still a pretty good price.

Okay, I guess paying less than $3 for a domain isn’t amazing anymore, since Yahoo has gone as low as $1.99 and some hosts give you a free one when you sign up for hosting, but…

What’s different about the iPowerWeb deal is that your $2.95 gets you both the domain AND free WHOIS privacy.
