Kontera updated its TOS, no more $5 earnings minimum

Kontera removed "$5 earnings minimum" clause, this has been announced in their blog:
After releasing our updated TOS we’ve received some publisher feedback pertaining to an existing clause. The clause, stating a $5 earnings minimum in order for revenues to be rolled over to the next month, though not a new addition, raised some concerns among a small yet important segment of our publisher community.
Since publisher feedback is highly important to us and as a result, we’ve decided to remove this clause from our TOS effective April 1st 2009.

Is this a good news to 'a small yet important segment of our publisher community?' but I have removed Kontera code in most of my webpages after I have realized this, and feel very unhappy with MY 'stupidness'. I am sandbox publisher, I joined Kontera six months ago, none of my monthly revenue has reached minimum earning requirement (and I have to say, Kontera's CPC rate is very low!), so I have worked for Kontera for nothing for more than six months, because I have never read TOS carefully, I wrote to ask them and was told this is written in the TOS, I feel I am a fool.

Virgin Media Netgear Wireless Router Username and Password

As Virgin Media customer, if you find your wireless router is Netgear, then you may type the router's setup URL into a web browser address bar. http://192.168.0.1 is the default Netgear router IP address. http://192.168.1.1 will work for some Netgear models. Mine setup URL is http://192.168.1.1 . Then you are required to enter a username and password. If you haven't change the default setting, it is "virgin" and "password", you may find that on a label stuck on the router. This default username and password of Virgin Wireless router is different from that of the normal Netgear router. The default username of Netgear is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Then you open the configure interface, change the settings, such as change your DNS server to OpenDNS . For a normal Netgear router, if you forget the username and password, you can reset and restore the NETGEAR device to factory default settings. But I couldn't find any button on

URL cannot contain a Google host

Google just opened up Knol to the public. Knol is also serving up AdSense advertising on the site. Authors on Knol can enter their AdSense data into Knol, and will get the regular AdSense payout for every click on an ad. This seems like a smart way to reward users who write the best (or most popular) content, while still making money for Google, because the cut Google already takes from the advertising through AdSense anyway. Currently, I don't know how may we track ads performance on knol, I tried to add an URL channel, and got error message: "http://knol.google.com/k/-/k3-searching-tv-programs-using-teletext/2p3t2lhf3x6sj/6#" at line 1 invalid: URL cannot contain a Google host. Has anybody any idea of how to do it?
