Sony declines warranty

Got back my Sony Vaio VGN-C1S - unrepaired; Sony declines to replace defect rechargeable battaries within warranty. They arbitrarily limit warranty to 6 month for battaries.
The company denies to comment on their interpretation of warranty terms. This sucks!

swap helps

Enabling swap (on an USB stick :-)) on my OpenWrt slug helps to serve larger Mercurial transactions.
Had to flash OpenWrt trunk (rev #8779) to get swap working.
