Ask Slashdot: Suggestions For a Simple Media Server?

queBurro Re:Mediatomb (420 comments)

just to throw this into the mix but I've got mediatomb running on my flashed asus router, it's available as a binary package via ipkg IIRC. The benefit is that you can use a bit of "always on kit" to do your media serving too without running a separate PC to do the job.

Backdoor Discovered In Netgear and Linkys Routers

queBurro Re:OpenBSD (189 comments)

FYI - those things you listed are all available as packages for dd-wrt/openwrt/tomato routers. e.g. I've got mediatomb running on my router,which servers some tunes etc on a stick plugged in to its side. I figured it was cheaper than having a PC on all the time as a media server.

queBurro Re:Amazing discovery! (104 comments)

so... if we all mounted our APs in the roof space with directional antenna pointed down we'd *all* have better wifi rececption. For me, my AP would be one layer of plasterboard worse off than where it is now (but with a gain from the antenna hopefully). I could use a Wok instead of an aerial change so it's cheap too.

Drone Comes Within 200 Feet of Airliner Over New York

queBurro Re:I smell a rat (339 comments)

depends, if you think of it as a 'weapon' (e.g. a semi-automatic rifle) then never, but if you think of it as a device to spy on the rich then it'll get banned pretty quickly
