Adobe Flash Player 11 beta out – no more npviewer.bin process sucking CPU resource?

Adobe Flash Flash Player 11 beta is out. I immediately installed it per these instructions after downloading the binaries here (via the ~/.mozilla/plugins method). I am so sick of the npviewer.bin process always sucking up my CPU resource. So far, I don’t notice this issue anymore. I really dislike the fact that Adobe doesn’t bother to fix bugs in their products for Linux users. Because of this, I hope all websites implement utilize HTML5 so I don’t have to depend on Adobe!

Trendnet TEW-652BRP with DD-WRT firmware

So I own a relatively inexpensive trendnet router (on sale ~ $25) for a while now, and I’ve been trying to get DD-WRT working with it since having it. This site says it is supported, but I couldn’t find a firmware available until now. This post (page 16) has a link to this site that host some binary firmwares. Using the web interface I flashed the firmware successfully and now has a powerful router with DD-WRT. Cool! I use the dd-wrt to assign my laptop a static ip for port forwarding, among other things.
