So last night I geeked out, I … upgraded to NXE on the Xbox restarted my netflix account played around with netflix streaming on the xbox (watched some anime, and a really bad kungfu flik) activated a new verizon usb727, said goodbye to the usb720 built a “drinkup” hotspot with a cradlepoint ctr500 and the usb727 (WPA2 + capture portal got 407k down with bad reception) I added an at bootime menu item to on the laptop to select the “drinkup” or “home” wireless. I recently did a rebuild of my laptop, with a focus on minimal install, using ArchLinux. From boot to logged in at desktop, including background WPA2 association takes 28 seconds.  Speed demon woot!
