Happy holidays!

Well I took an old p1 and installed ubuntu 5.x server and added the build-essential. Installed the os on compact flash via an ide adapter. Had to use a special boot floppy to get the cdrom to start the installation. Probably will use it as a light controller. A few mocs and triacs should make it an easy job (I hope).

One of the reasons I like to do page scraping is to get the data I need without having to take time to use a web browser such as Firefox and or a newsreader to get the specific data I need. Letting the computer get the data for me and making a summary file of the data I need is therefore letting the computer be my secretary and or research assistant.

Have been doing some page scraping, but i was not able to get the weather from their (Google) site. Then read they have it sort of hidden....

Almost but not quite qbasic.

Gosh I wrote so many programs in Quickbasic, I just hated to give them up. I looked around for a clone of Quickbasic and found Freebasic. I write a lot of my home automation routines in Freebasic now. So easy to control the parallel port compared to everything else and you do not have to have any special libraries other than the original libs to install the program. I have come up with at least on Debian a routine to install Freebasic. Tried it on Ubuntu 10.05 and Debian squeeze.

Kind of neat.

Beginning to like gpxe more and more. So far we have it for setting up to install linux distros via the net. Now we have it to load clonezilla. There were no instructions for setting it up with clonezilla except for pxe usage. That information was enough to make adjustments to get clonezilla to load and run via gpxe. No more messing around with tftp except when needed.

Tried to upgrade the proms to gpxe on some 3com cards, but no luck. they might be locked. Have some 3com cards...
