Wireless bridging with OpenWrt and a WRT310N

I’m currently building some servers for a client, and didn’t want to do it in my main office. Unfortunately, none of the spare rooms are wired. I’ve never had much luck getting bridging working with wireless routers – until now. This OpenWrt guide works quite nicely. Obviously you need to have a router which supports OpenWrt (WRT310N in my case). (I’m partly posting this for my own future reference – quite surprised it’s working)

Fantasy world drawn in MS Paint took 4 years to create

This fantasy world took its author 4 years to create. I’m unable to say anything negative about anything which took anyone 4 years to create, so you’ll have to view it yourself and make up your own opinion.

VerticalTabs is a Chrome extension for idiots like myself who insist on having 39483948 tabs open at the same time. It allows you to browse them using a vertical menu so you can read the titles.
