I have been having slow internet response times for a while with Firefox under Ubuntu. I think there are probably multiple reasons here. First, the recent memory leak fixes in Firefox seem to work in Windows, but it still seems to leak in Ubuntu. Second, Iíve read in some forums that IPv6 might be a contributing factor........

Linux Boot Process

Posted 07-19-2010 at 06:21 AM by QueenZ

The beautiful thing about Linux is that you can actually get to know it. Iím writing my own Desktop Environment right now so it should be really great.
  1. First your computer runs whatever it finds on ROM, usually it is your firmware (BIOS/EFI)
  2. BIOS contains the Boot Sector Loader. What this does is it loads the first 512 byte sector (Master Boot Record at address 0000:7C00) into your RAM. It is a very small program that loads the rest of the boot loader. Since itís small size,

    guint32 Top;
    guint32 Rear;

    guint32 Right;

Playing with DD-WRT

Posted 07-18-2010 at 11:35 PM by damgar

It's not compatible with every model, but the older linksys wrt54g's (the blue and black one's with external antennas) work well for the most part from what I can tell.
