Really.  I did have a history composed but I had sent something to a 
printer, which ran out of paper, that put dbus-notifier at 100% cpu on one 
core, so I went and refilled the paper drawer and got the last 2 pages.  But 
that didn't fix dbus-notifier, so I killed it.  That took kmail with it, with 
apparently no message saved, and killed x vs keyboard.  Had to reboot, 
2.6.35-rc6 didn't find any network, yadda yadda.  I wound up doing a power 
down and everything is back.  Weirdsville.

The bottom line is the best kept secret in routers, an old x86 box, 2 or 
more nics, no drives, keyboard or monitor, booting dd-wrt from a cf card in 
an ide adapter.  Set the admin's username & password to something John 
can't find in a year or 10, sit back and relax.  No one has gotten through 
it that I did not first give them the username and password in about 3 years 


Cheers, Gene
