    A lorry containing over 7,000 wireless router kits, worth in excess of £350,000, was stolen from a Kent trading estate last month. The lorry was later found in London, sans routers. The routers have been floating around the internet for some time, at a reduced price of around £11 from a standard £50. D-Link has promised standard tech support to anyone who bought a stolen router. The routers model number is DWL-922/E and the UPC number — displayed next to the barcode — is 790069285479. The routers have a two pin power plug, and are pictured below. Readers with information on the theft should contact DC Elspass-Collins on 01622 604258.

    All my news sources are though :) (and last time I checked a lorry was a legitimate definition of "large truck").

    LOL!

    Finally, now I KNOW what the Pink Floyd tune that has a line of "And the lorries go rolling by" (child's voice iirc says it) means...

    :)

    * Funniest part for me, personally, is that 2 of my ex-g/f's are named "Lori" & they BOTH got really fat over time!

    (A shame, especially on 1 of 'em, she was "HOT" before that)...

    Thus, hehe, their names TRULY "fit them" (albeit, probably lol, just barely if the 'volume increase' stayed linear - Shame, but nowadays, both "Lorries" look like trucks now - they are both like 2 of each of them nowadays, vs. how they used to look!)

    APK

    P.S.=> Anyhow, that's my 'take' on that term & what it made me remember/think about again... now that I know what the term means in Englishmen's ENGLISH (the oem)... apk
