Robbie covered a lot of interesting Pogoplug-related questions, such as how to mount the Pogoplug as a drive in Linux and Windows, and what cool ways you could use Pogoplug to protect and share your data. Our main feature is all about DD-WRT--from selecting which router to buy based on the type of DD-WRT firmware you wish to use, to actually installing and running the firmware.

Notes:
During Hillary's news segment, the photo kept switching to slideshow mode.  Robbie fixed it pretty quick, but it was goofy.

Unfortunately we couldn't get back to setting up the Pogoplug on Linux, but we will look at that in an upcoming episode.
