I have been using reblog to combine two feeds (for a blog and a forum) which I then publish through Feedburner. What I want to do is have the blog part of my feed update normally (i.e. individual posts) and the forum part of my feed compiled into a daily link list (which itself is published as if it were ONE feed post each day)...

My company needs to find a web filtering solution that can filter out pornography, gambling and all the other sites companies don't like people looking at when at work.

When do students need to go to a library? I'm writing a lesson plan for teachers to use when teaching research to middle schoolers.

My DSL modem is fried and out of warrantee.
SNET SBC AT&T wants $100 for me to buy a new one, or they'll give me a free one if I sign a new contract. I'll likely be moving in three months, and a hundred dollars is pretty pricey when I can find used ones on eBay for less than twenty. I'm pretty technical, but the problem is that I don't know G.DMT, G.Lite, or T1.413 from a hole in the ground. What requirements should I look for in a DSL modem to be sure that it's compatible? (I'm in Connecticut.)

My router logs show that I have been under what looks like a sustained low level DOS attack for quite a while now. An example entry is: 1 Blocked by DoS protection 10.69.0.1 I assume the IP is spoofed because it is a reserved IP and I am on a 192.168.*.* local network.

Particular web pages won't load for me -- nothing exotic, normal stuff like the Washington Post, certain pages at Amazon. The WaPo site just loads the logo bar at the top and then stops dead. Worst part is that it doesn't matter what browser or OS I'm using. What's going on? [more inside]
