"Whereof one cannot toot, thereof one must remain untooting."

As part of this, I'm able to return my Verizon-branded router (which was needed for their TV service) and switch to my own. Gonna flash OpenWrt onto a basic Netgear AP I purchased and play with that.

Finally dropped my FiOS TV subscription. Between that and some other tweaks, I've cut my monthly FiOS bill from $210 to $70. Not bad.

(I've switched to (a) an antenna and (b) just not watching much TV at all.)
