Here’s a tip for all DD-WRT router users out there who want to block ads. Install Pixelserv onto your DD-WRT router. What can Pixelserv do that others can’t in terms of ads blocking?
- Pixelserv will block ads from all devices within your network while ad-block-plus addon for Firefox is only for the browser and host file editing can only help per machine.
- Pixelserv doesn’t degrade your web browsing experience. On the other hand, host file editing method can sometimes worsen web browsing experience due to a brief delay while browser waits for DNS request time out from those ad servers. A quick trip to thetvdb.com is an example why I wouldn’t recommend to use host file editing method in terms of ad blocking. The site loads so slowly.

OH Last week. I’ve just bought my first LEGO modular building set which is the Fire Brigade 10197. I and my daughter built it and we used Frameograhper to make this time lapse video. It was quite fun and my daughter enjoys playing it.
As you know Blizzard just announced Diablo 3 will be coming out on May 15, 2012. For now you can Pre-Purchase a digital copy and ready to play whenever the servers go live. If you bought the game, you could download the game but you wouldn’t be able to play it yet. I like the fact buying a digital copy would save me time for travel and possibly lining up at store. I’m currently downloading it and 7.6 GB total for Diablo-III-8370-enUS-Installer.
