Your network has been very good this year, so why not reward it with a shiny new toy? Our Networking Holiday Buyer's Guide will guide you to the goodies and keep you away from the lumps of coal.

I´m almost ashamed to ask, but... what happend to the elf? :?

I was wondering that myself, especially after reading the hostile exchange in the previous thread for the Part 1 of the series.

That's unfortunate they decided to change it...

There's no secret plot afoot here.

This year the Holiday Guide is a series of separate articles prepared by different editors. Sarah was not available for my article.

I can tell you were waiting for that question. :)  Still, great article, it provided a nice synopsis of the recommended gear I have been sporadically reading about over the last months, and direct links to those articles so we do not have to search around.

This might be a good idea to run semi-annually or something, just a synopsis of recommended networking gear which got positive reviews every few months or something like that. That way if we miss articles or forget about something we are seeking later, we have a nice reference point for good choices. I find these kinds of articles and performance graphs, etc have helped me a great deal to make good purchasing decisions and always be satisfied with results.

Thanks for the article :D 

Was just about to do some home networking too,
and this is going to come in handy when I decide
which hardware I will use :D

Oh well, it´s quite nice even without all the elfiness. I especially liked the "thumbs down" parts.

Are you guys going to review the Slim Devices Transporter?
November 12, 2006 3:39:18 AM

I normally dont even post here, but I agree - bring back Elf!!
November 12, 2006 6:10:18 PM

The elf was very nice, but some of you guys need to get out (a lot) more.

No more elf comments.

We all want Sarah back, but she is gone now.. We have to face the truth! :cry: 


Oh and BTW, what happened to the Part-1 discussion? Why was it locked?
