O gurus, what does it mean to brick a device like a wireless router? Is it 
correct to say it's corrupting the OS to the point where it cannot boot, and 
you cannot re-flash the EEPROM? But if you had a nifty little EEPROM programmer 
device thingy, and could safely pull the chip out of the router, you could 
restore it?
