Learning again.

Finally was able to order a rpi. Believe it when I see it. One nice thing about the units is using several memory cards each with a specific purpose. No need to have a zillion units to do what you want. A touch pad is probably the first order of the day. Seen all the rpi diy articles, but none seem to really take advantage of it. Might do my own.

Debugging networking can be so much fun. Set up two virtual machines using Virtual Bbx. One was Debian Wheezy that I wanted to set up an...

Set up pfsense on a 2 g compact flash (with ide interface) and installed it in an old "AT" based p1 box. Need to compare the throughput compared to the plastic router being used now.

Bought a pogoplug for twenty bucks on the recommendation of SourceTrunk. Have not tried to install linux yet. Arch should be an interesting new distro to play with. It has a crappy warranty.

Do not have a machine that can run w8, but I have a client machine that could probably...

Crash.

Posted 08-26-2012 at 03:34 PM by peonuser

Computer fell off the desk from pretty high up. It smashed my PalmIIIxe to bits. Kiss it goodbye. The nslu2 was in the same box, but for the time being it still seems to work (so far). have not looked at the computer yet. It was an old p2 I was using as a tftp server. I would preferred to have it broke rather than the palm. Oh well.

Come to the realization that all my old computer stuff will not work with the newer media. Spent a little time writing various scripts for personal use. Made a debian text only removable install for the insignia infocast. Desktop hd bit the dust. Was able to back up most everything. Forgot to grab the tuxpaint pics. Replaced the drive and installed Debian instead of Ubuntu. Plastic on an old laptop screen section disintegrated. Such a fun week.

Not an Arch linux user, but I am thinking about becoming one. Noticed that Mythtv seems to have some packages for MythTV in the Arch repo for the ARM cpu. Have two Arm products and maybe a third if I get my birthday wish. As I have already recorded, we put Debian squeeze back on the Nslu2. The Insigina infocast also has an Arm processor. Would it not be interesting to make the Chumby, a MythTV front end!!!!
