New Router (Now With DHCP!)

So, last December, my WBR-2310 router died, forcing me to go back to the D-Link DIR-601, which was already, really, really beat-up and performing not so well.
A new router was in order, almost mandatory, and the chosen one was a Netgear WNR2000v5.
Configured to spec even during the holidays, withouth the actual LAN to test it, and replaced the aging D-Link DIR-601 without any issue once I got home.
The main difference with the prior setup was that I had to move my LAN setup to DHCP, in order to be able to use the Roku, but then again, using the DHCP reservations proved to work A Ok so far, so I didn't even change the fixed IP addresses of all the boxes on the LAN.

Roku: No Fixed IP For You!

First problem with the Roku in Argentina..
Well, actually, it is a problem that would eventually happen anywhere.
The Roku box doesn't support fixed IP addresses... For the love of Jeebus, they have to be fucking kidding...
Since I don't use DHCP on my LAN, therefore I'm fucked.
Tried to make a reservation, using the Roku's MAC address, but, of course, did not work.
Will have to switch to a DHCP enabled LAN for this... At least, for the few minutes it will take me to test what actually works, regarding the streaming, here in Argentina.

The Second Roku Is The Best Roku (?)

Got a second Roku for the GF yesterday.
Again, a Roku 3, and like on the original one, mostly just for the USB port.
Nice setup, now that I have an account, even one without the hassle of the credit card, registered under the same account, and it automagically downloaded ans installed all the the same channels that I had installed on the previous one.
Nice touch, I guess.
Still have to see what can be streamed below the Tortilla Wall...

Stack'em High!

This past Monday on an Ihop around here running the all you can eat pancakes stuff...
I can't possibly believe there is someone who can actually eat more than one of these.

Bigger Is Better (And Newer)

Along with the Nexus 6, the Moto X are the only cellphones I would buy as of right now.
The Moto X is smaller (more manageable) than the Nexus 6, and also a lot cheaper.
