bigfinger76 Re:XP Works (860 comments)

Public Libraries Tinker With Offering Makerspaces

bigfinger76 Re:Community centres used to be like this (90 comments)

You missed the point. Overzeetops time is money, son! Wasting it to fix a t.v. is unacceptable - cuts into /. time.

Linksys Resurrects WRT54G In a New Router

bigfinger76 Re:That is awesome (310 comments)

Linksys routers still sell well. Cisco sold the whole bag, not just the WRT54G. Cisco has nothing to do with this.

bigfinger76 Re:That is awesome (310 comments)

Why do you think Cisco will win out here? The first sentence of TFA clearly states that Belkin bought Linksys from Cisco a year ago.

bigfinger76 Re:What percentage will be upgraded? (54 comments)

I know of no ISP in the last 5 years that doesn't offer routers. Easy money every month. To not offer them is leaving a lot of cash on the table - these companies know better at this point. I even worked for a local (rural) telecom about 4 years ago, and we offered them then.
