Sadly the TP-Link Archer C1200 appears to not be supported by OpenWRT (and TP-Link has several completely different routers using the exact same product name making it very difficult to check on open-source compatibility ahead of time 🙁
I came here to comment about the C1200 as well. I agree that their naming is pretty confusing, but this specific model is pretty solid for home use. I’ve had it for about a month, and it’s been stable and cool under heavy streaming/gaming/file transfers, and the range seems good. It may not be OpenWRT compatible, but on the plus side its firmware seems pretty secure from intrusion. There aren’t any TP-Link models on the list of routers susceptible to FlyTrap or CherryBlossom.
Neat, Humble Bundle is selling books on crystal healing other woo. I would say something incredibly hostile about how pseudoscience and magical thinking are a detriment to society more than offsetting the amount they’ll raise for charity from this, but that would get my chakras out of alignment or something.
Yeah, some of the books certainly look fishy (not the vegan cookbook, obviously), but there are a few good ones in the bundle and you can get the whole thing for the less than the price of a single hardcover so…
I do like that the ice cream recipe book is right next to the bodyweight training exercise book though.
