No text shown in flash7 under mozilla firefox

I have had a problem where flash wasn't showing any text on menus in the flash, or in the flash settings app.

I am running debian, and it appears that the solution is to install gsfonts-x11. This then provides the fonts that flash uses.

Perils of embedded devices

It appears that some types of Netgear home routers are flooding network time servers. There are all sorts of issues here, but it does show exactly how many of this sort of item get sold, and the problems that even legitimate(ish) traffic from a few hundred thousand machines can cause problems.

At least Netgear are working towards a resolution, even if distributing a fix to the customers will be next to impossible.
