After several weeks of hacking at this Dell Dimension E521, I finally have a working server!!!  I had this extra system laying around and decided it would make a good replacement for my aging webserver.  It didn’t have a hard drive so I ordered up a 750Gb Seagate Sata drive and stuck it in.  I […]

I spent a little time over the last few days getting Debian linux installed and running on my N810.  This install did not replace the Maemo linux that was already on the 810 but runs on top of it in a chroot.  It runs quite well considering the limited specs of the 810.  I have […]

I just updated the WordPress backend and many of the plugins for this site this morning. There are a few of my plugins that have not caught up to the newest version of WordPress yet. Due to this, there are a few features disabled at the moment. I have removed the sign up form for […]

Nokia N810

On Monday I received my new toy, the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet. Its a sweet little handheld linux based computer.

This will replace the N800 that I posted about back in May. The 810 adds a number of new features and capabilities that the 800 lacked. Most importantly are a GPS, slide out keyboard and support for up to 8gb flash cards. The base memory is already 2gb right out of the box. The 810 uses the same 400mhz arm cpu as the 800. An updated version of the Maemo linux distribution shows much better polish than the the 800’s did.

The finish and build quality seem excellent compared to most other handhelds I’ve seen. It has very nice brushed aluminum backcover and screen border with silver plastic edges. All in all its a very sharp looking unit.

I’ve spent the last few evenings downloading and installing applications and getting everything configured. With most everything I want installed, I still have plenty of space free for extras like music and picture storage.

Thats enough for now. After all this was jmust supposed to be a test post. 🙂

Yesterday, one of my users reported that my blog was not allowing him to login. Upon closer inspection, I found that my site had been hacked and my users database was hosed. It looks as tho all the hacker was able to do was corrupt my database and nothing was stolen. I spent some time […]
