Thanks for posting this Khalid. Lori had me going there for a minute.

I was all set to sing different words to the telus "I want a 
hippopotamus for Christmas commercial".

Anybody know ... on these OpenWRT ddWRT boxes ... is a USB port 
hubbable? e.g. SD reader + external hard drive + printer + etc.?
