Summary     : Firmware for qlogic 2500 devices
Description :
Firmware for qlogic 2500 devices.

Update Information:

QLogic has new firmware updates out for their ql2400 and ql2500 devices, version 5.03.16!

They still won't tell me (or anyone) what this update does, much less share the code. So, without further ado, here is my top ten list of things I think are hidden in the 5.03.16 firmware update:

10. Jimmy Hoffa
9. Copies of the ET Atari 2600 video game.
8. Snakes. Lots and lots of snakes.
7. High Fructose Corn Syrup
6. Stuxnet
5. Duke Nukem Forever
4. Styrofoam Packing Peanuts
3. Vermeer's "The Concert"
2. Charlie Sheen
1. The Holy Grail

Feel free to email all complaints and bugs to support at qlogic.com. While you're at it, feel free to ask them why they are afraid to show the code for their device firmware to anyone.
