Introduction to Tomato Firmware

| Like DD-WRT, the Tomato firmware can be installed on a variety of wireless
| routers. Tomato supports the Linksys WRT54G family, which also includes the
| WRT54GS, WRT54GL, and WRTSL54GS. Note that Tomato will not work with WRT54G
| routers later than version 4, since these do not run Linux. The WRT54GL model
| is always a safe bet—the "L" stands for Linux!

Windows Home Server bug corrupts files

,----[ Quote ]
| Given that the point of Windows Home Server is to allow you to store
| your media files, a bug in the storage process that could result in
| corrupted files is bound to get attention.
| Microsoft has issued a support document for the 13 or so (just
| kidding) people using Windows Home Server, the company's latest
| product for those attempting to build the digital home of the future.
| Apparently there's a flaw in the way Windows Home Server works with
| certain Microsoft applications, such as Windows Vista Photo Gallery,
| that could result in corrupted files if you use those applications to
| save files to the server. A list of the specific applications can be
| found in the support document.
