Is that long ago? Flash memory has come a long way in recent years.

I'm running SSDs on my desktop, and them burning out is not something
I'm all that concerned about. Mounting with relatime is probably a good
idea, though.

Recently I bought a new router, and I've been just itching to install
DD-WRT on it, I made sure to check it was compatible before buying it.
The default firmware isn't bad, I'm just concerned about security, and
there are a few options I miss. Besides, it's running an ssh server on
the internal interface, for which I can't get a password or key :(
