The New Napster and Launchy

Rhapsody, the long-suffering little brother streaming music service, recently rebranded itself as Napster. Same app, different name. Big deal. I noticed that I could not start the app with the great Launchy in my new Windows 10 install. Not sure if it worked in Windows 7. Looking at Properties of the launch shortcut, in C:\Users\Me\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Rhapsody… Continue reading The New Napster and Launchy

Flashing an AirLink router again and again with DD-WRT

I got an Airlink 101 AR430w router from a dude at a McHenry County Software Craftsmanship meeting. He had already flashed it with DD-WRT and like a moron I tried a web firmware upgrade to the latest build 21061 – without knowing what it fixed.
