NoCatSplash in ewrt Portless Networks just released ewrt v0.2b1, an alternative firmware for the Linksys WRT54G. This version includes NoCatSplash and a nice web interface for configuring it.

This collaboration served to create critical mass for the website to provide printable maps, in addition to on-screen maps that exist. Also, this paves the way for other universities and groups interested in orgznizing detailed scans of their city to have a way to actually accomplish this, and have visual results. The files are BitTorrented because of their enormous size (over 100 and 300 MB). [link via Slashdot]...
