Well, it’s that time again. I got something to blargh about. Keeping it short and to the point: I recently bought a shiny new Archos Cesium 80 tablet with Windows 8.1. All very nice, being able to run w32 apps without any problem. But there’s one bottleneck: it only has 16GB of available disk space.… Continue reading ARCHOS Cesium 80 — support?!
I guess I’ve come to a point where blogging isn’t a viable hobby anymore. I wonder what to post, sometimes I get an idea and next thing I know I’ve forgotten everything. Well, I guess this just means there’s a pause now in my blogposts, while I’m focusing on the better things in life. See… Continue reading The end?
Ahh, yes. I’ve been reading the news, and somehow it got me to a group called ‘Resist Surveillance’. The group is organized by a few human rights groups, as shown as on their site. The purpose of the software? Detect government spyware by running it and viewing the results (obviously). This isn’t really anything new,… Continue reading Guide for governments: Resisting Detekt
The migration happened a few weeks ago, offloading my home network and trying to have more uptime. My estimation was 1 day, but it actually took 2 hours or so. This is a small update of what is migrated to the other/second server (codename HR2): – ZNC- Statistics generation and caching – FTP – Backups… Continue reading Server migration: what happened?
I’ve been away for too long. But I haven’t been sitting like a duck here. Been pretty busy with my new toy, the Raspberry Pi. I also got a new phone. One of the things I use my Raspberry Pi for, is to notify me on a new SMS or e-mail. It’s in combination with… Continue reading RPi, a new phone, and a new server (soon).
I have not been very busy with my blog lately. This is mainly because I don’t really have good ideas (or just forget them), or just because I’m distracted (study). I consider my blog my side project, and not really my main area of work. This is why my blog isn’t updated as frequently as… Continue reading Happy 2014!
I’ve installed Windows 8.1 on my main laptop, and it’s even faster (performance) than Windows 8. Some games (and websites) do not seem to agree though, but I haven’t really installed any games which will drain a lot of performance; let alone to test it. So I’ll just assume that games don’t really work (though,… Continue reading Windows 8.1: More choice and less clutter.
A few months back, I got a scanner from my uncle. It’s an ‘old’ HP scanjet 4470c. I’m using the 64 bits version of Windows 8; and there are no drivers for my little scanner. So I came up with an idea. I used my VirtualBox Windows XP (x86) installation, and installed the drivers on… Continue reading My scanner is boxed!
Most people don’t know what an internet browser is. Heck, most people use Internet Explorer or Safari for that matter. But it’s all thanks to Google people change their minds. Commercials. Everywhere. This isn’t too bad, but it’s bad for the ‘free browser market’. Other browsers (Firefox, Opera) do not have the budget to advertise… Continue reading The horrors of the World Wide Web
A portable server for around $85. Yes, if you told someone just that 10 years ago, you were put in an isolation cell in the worst-case scenario. But today it is possible, and nobody will call you crazy with this setup you can put in tiny handbags, dog or spaceship capsule. (unless you are going… Continue reading A quick portable server: Raspberry Pi
