Google Web Accelerator ... NOT

I am sure most of you have already heard of Google's Web Accelerator (GWA). If you have not, GWA is one of Google's creations bordering on being a spawn, depending on how you feel about having your Internet controlled! If you do not care, than you will like this little application, but if you like flexibility with your browser, you might see the current version (Firefox extension version 1.0.62.80) as a spawn.

Oppsss… Linksys RTP300 VoIP router.

I just found a bug in the login script of the RTP300 Linksys VoIP router. The firmware is 1.00.55 version. This was just by accident. My password contains letters and numbers. I was typing too fast and at the end of my password I typed the wrong number. By the time my actions clicked in my hear I had already hit enter. And what do you know? I was able to log in. This caused me to think about this, so I tried few different combinations of passwords and this is what I discovered.

Sorry, but people are not dumb.

Are advertisers really that comfortable with us or do they think we are just that much of a flock of sheep, so they do not have to try hard anymore? Seriously, do we the people, not look for quality anymore? Do not we want good presentation to assure us?

It is snowing.

Snow, snow, let it snow
It is snowing once again.
They are falling we are freezing,
Snow is here once again.

Please tell me how did you calculate this?

I do not know about the rest of the state, but here in Chicago, AOL has a TV commercial about ad-aware and spy-ware. In that commercial an AOL representative makes a statement that spy-ware and all the other junk can "slow down your computer UPTO 500%". Now, I do not know in what world AOL exists in, maybe their own, that's why that company is in such shape, but in the physical world on planet Earth you just cannot got bellow 0, unless you are talking about temperature (feel free to post comment about anything else). It is obvious they are not.Anyways, once you reach 0 speed you simple CANNOT GOT AT NEGATIVE 400% SPEED. AOL please check your physics book. To me it is impossible to go negative 400% in time or on the Internet, otherwise you are either going backwards or back in time.
