Synology USB Station 2 first quick overview

Posted 07-16-2011 at 05:56 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Recently I've bought this quite nice boxie, mainly for playing with it.
Here's what I have in mine, I've updated to next available firmware version, 1417, since last one almost got my box broken.
Code:
BusyBox v1.16.1 (2010-09-18 17:01:14 CST) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

USBStation2> echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

More fun around MIPS

Posted 01-29-2011 at 09:54 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I thought I finally have to try this myself at last, so I logged in to my Netgear router and started experiments around MIPS assembly.

It isn't much, though, I think I love this architecture It's really easy comparing to x86.

I guess I started at the wrong place. My first step was googling for "MIPS linux syscall", I was trying to find some easy sample code in order to understand how it works and create "hello world" myself. But MIPS is so easy,...

gentoo stage3-x86-uclibc-2008.0 hacking

Posted 01-08-2011 at 02:47 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Long time no posting
Today I'm going to describe my so called experience with gentoo stage3 from 2008, linked against uClibc, a tiny C library for developing embedded environments.
I first met uClibc on my router's tomato-usb firmware. I was amazed when I've seen how small memory usage was, even for coreutils-apps.
Since that I was looking for decent inspiration to try out building my own uClibc-based environment. As I previously wrote (I think I did), I once was an assembler...

My experience with NetGear WNR3500L

Posted 11-08-2010 at 11:43 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Today I've finally make it to reflashing, I was quite busy these days. So, armed with manuals over the net I started the process by uploading .chk of dd-wrt, in order to then upload .bin (renamed .trx) of tomato-usb.
My first mistake was when I uploaded dd-wrt. Actually, that was sorta minimal build, not so fresh also, I am not exactly sure what went wrong but I started to tweak it instead of moving right ahead with uploading tomatousb. When I applied some settings and rebooted it no longer...

Will the future acknowledge us?

The internet is exploding into the physical world. Hordes of creatives have more access now than ever before to ways of making their ideas real. Technology is more than a tool form, it's bridging into art.

Hyphenated techno-aethestics are creeping into our cultures and lifestyles: wall-plug computing, work-enhancing devices, passive-information feeds, social-media running shoes, internet-based bling. All of these embedded chips have to run something.

We can see where...
