More toys!

Wed 03 June 2009 by LrdShaper

I received my SheevaPlug this week. It's a teeny-bit smaller than I thought it would be from the pics that I see on the net. Probably because of my somewhat larger hands :)

Anyway, the SheevaPlug is a small device, probably the size of a laptop's power brick, that's very big …

Fri 08 May 2009 by LrdShaper

Category : Asterisk Tags: gnu/linux, xbox, asterisk, kernel, xebian, debian

I wanted to move my Asterisk setup from my NSLU2 to the Xbox. After successfully compiling both Asterisk and Zaptel I get an error while trying to load the Zaptel modules:

FATAL: Error inserting ztdummy (/lib/modules/2.6.16 …

NSLU2 is now Debian powered

Sun 16 November 2008 by LrdShaper

Managed to finish most of the migration as scheduled. Installation and configuration took roughly 8-10hrs including a few power naps here and there and native compilation of some of the packages mostly because the newer version is not in the repositories. NTP server is up, so is the WINS server …

Use rtorrent for your downloads

Thu 07 August 2008 by LrdShaper

If you own a hacked ( NSLU2 or XBOX), rtorrent and screen/dtach can prove to be your new best friend. It's lightweight, fast, stable and uses less memory than a goldfish.

So what can rtorrent do? Well for starters it can:

1) Watch directories for new torrents. So all you …

Got a new toy!!!

Sat 24 May 2008 by LrdShaper

Well, sort of. It's not really new and it's also not mine. My friend lent me an XBOX to play with since he's no longer using it seeing as he just recently bought an XBOX360. Now let's see if I can get linux working on this baby, something to keep …

Random fortunes are up

Thu 22 May 2008 by LrdShaper

Yep it's up and running. I decided to use javascript so the fortunes are dynamic 'on every pageload' as opposed to 'on every new post' if I used bash.

Lets add some random fortunes

Wed 21 May 2008 by LrdShaper

I think I'll be sticking with JS-Kit for a while. I like how it's so easy to add to any part of the page you want and moderating the comments is also a breeze.

So tonight I'll be adding a random fortune routine to add some flavor to the site …

JS-Kit + nanoblogger

Tue 20 May 2008 by LrdShaper

Decided to try JS-Kit Comments first and got it up and running in less than 10mins! ;) I literally had to add only one line of code in some of the nanoblogger templates.

For those wanting to try JS-Kit to add comments in nanoblogger you just add the line

Thoughts so far

Tue 20 May 2008 by LrdShaper

Boy when the nanoblogger website mentioned slowness as one of the "cons", they weren't kidding. But after all the processing are complete, everything is in static html which is just the way I wanted it.

Getting comments to work is getting longer than I expected though. Both NBCom and blogKomm …

My first post

Mon 19 May 2008 by LrdShaper

Well after years of always coming up with an excuse not to start a blog I finally decided to take the plunge and play around with nanoblogger. The fact that my main PC's power supply broke down last Thursday and not having a way to get some projects done during …
