Set up the now insignia infocast with chumby 8 software to recieve music from a linux box running gnump3d. Had to run fapg to create an m3u file. Works a lot like a musac. Looking for a linux install so I do not have to depend on a network to allow me to use the unit.

Took the working parts (ram, harddrive from the machine that replaced the server) from my dead server to build another working machine. No more unused atx motherboards....

Started labeling servers: web,...

Finally have my robot up and running. It will probably just a butler for now. Wifi for that old p1 board was a real hassle. Overcame that issue.

Spent a lot of time on the Insignia Infocast. Upgraded it to the Chumby 8 firmware. At first, I really did not like it, but like anything it grows on you. Never used Arch Linux, but can not wait to see what it can do for the unit. The now aka Chumby 8 will give that product from Cupertino, California a real challenge as well as Android....

Friend of mine she gave me an all in one printer, but it needs major repair. Found the scanner driver for it, but I did not want to install that mess. She alo gave me a fax/scanner/low duty printer. It was low on ink, but it makes a superb color scanner. Remembered that I had some scanners that at one time did not work with linux. Two were usb. Tested one and it worked fine with B/W. Could not find the power block for the other one. I will look around. parallel port scanners are going into a robot...

Favorite new program for the command line is dvtm. It is sort of a command line desktop with text windows.

Replaced several apps on the web server. Sugarcrm is gone now. But by and large the server is running again. Still have to finish setting up the email server.

Solved my problem with qb64. Now I can run so much old software on linux! Compiled my old database program.

Found source code for a neat little web server (nweb) at IBM that serves static files. Compiled it and works great on linux. Perfect for our robotics project.

Time to watch football...
