A comprehensive router password database

If you like (or are required) to help/assist people with their wireless router needs, you’ve probably had the need to reset and reconfigure them many, many times.  The problem, however, is that most of time time you don’t have the admin username and password to do so; you ask them if they have their user manual laying around somewhere, or just google it, right?

Well then…to make your life a lot easier, here’s a great site that you can take advantage of.

Take care!

Try Ruby online

Ruby has been getting a lot of praise for a while now, so I decided to give it a try. I was surprised to find so many resources already out there, and one I think worth mentioning is this website.

Ruby is a programming language from Japan (available at ruby-lang.org) which is revolutionizing the web. The beauty of Ruby is found in its balance between simplicity and power.

What’s cool about the Try Ruby! website is that it’s an interactive web-based Ruby shell. And on top of that, it also offers a quick 15-minute tutorial as you go along.

Here’s a screenshot:

Pretty cool, ey? Lastly, here’s an excellent help-and-documentation website, specifically for Ruby if you want to delve and read more on it.

Catch you later. =0)
