Reset my brothers old linksys router which does actually run dd-wrt. I needed to test wireless on a laptop I have and check out the Chumby. Ended up having to upgrade the driver on the laptop. fortunately it was just an sudo apt-get install (filename). It connected to the router fine.

Title says it. So I've been using fluxbox forever with mrxvt and was stoked about my setup until I got once again sidetracked on the quest for screen real estate. Looks like I've finally achieved maximum useful pixel density re: the bloat around the edges. RAM usage is up a bit but I can't see RAM ever being an issue with the way I run Debian.
