  1. A D-Link router.

Those dumb little D-Link boxes in the corner of the lounges all over the world (I’ve heard them called “clocksuckers”) will still be demanding, whether or not they get an answer, to know what time it is. And this is just so that they can timestamp their logs correctly; even though no-one will ever look at their contents… What a waste, quite literally, of time! —Richard Clayton, “When Firmware Attacks!
