Let's say you have an ADSL router - we'll call it a Getnear DG834 - and you're happy with it, but you just installed a second ADSL connection and you want to extend your wireless network, so you bought a Getnear DG834G (G for 802.11g wireless), and you plug it in to your notebook and run the installation software, you'd better be damn sure that you turn off your wireless access before you do that because otherwise the software will SEEK OUT AND BRAIN-WIPE YOUR EXISTING ADSL ROUTER.
A factory reset will fix that, but you'd better remember exactly what your username and password are...

I shall get that fixed, and ban them some more.

On another note, I left a comment a little while back in the "misc. errors" thread in meenu's "help" page. The "help" recent comments don't seem to be showing up on the "help" page either.

Re: Bad software design. Interesting isn't it how we learn about things like remembering logins and passwords.... I once thought I had lost EVERYTHING on a business computer and racked my brains for the password and even contemplated buying a $400.00 cracking program till I remembered the "secret word." Now, all passwords and log ins are kept on a single sheet of paper in a safe. but even then you can lose it if you forget it before you write it down.
Bye the bye, are we going to get "ugh" trackback capability on mu.nu anytime soon? I have a number of folk asking to tb to my posts.

The line along the bottom and the abbreviation of the actual loop happened just today.

Brickmuppet - odd. I've seen that happen on very rare occasions, but it's not specific to Minx. It happens if for some reason the GIF file is incomplete. When it expires from your browser cache and is reloaded, it suddenly works again.
Could have just been a glitch with your internet connection, but if it happens again, let me know.

Hotlinked this image in this comment at Daily Pundit. Others have obviously seen it (see comment #2), but it's not visible today (even to me). Then there's this report.
Do I have a permissions problem, or is this one of those "you're not supposed to do that" things?
