1. broken stylus

    Few minutes ago my favorite stylus fall from table and lost a tip… So I have broken stylii for my c760 ;(

    I was using that stylus since bought collie in February 2004 — when I got c760 I swapped stylii between both Zauruses — tomorrow (or rather today) I will check does Tungsten|E one will match slot in c760.

  2. cpufreq on Zaurus

    Yesterday I did some tests how Zaurus C760 (ARM PXA255 at 400MHz) works with cpufreq enabled kernel (2.6.13-mm1). I have few frequences (100, 200, 300, 400MHz) and modes available:

    • conservative (300MHz)
    • ondemand (autoregulated from 100MHz to 400MHz)
    • powersave (100MHz)
    • userspace (let user set what he want)
    • performance (400MHz)

    OPIE sysinfo benchmarks results:

    Test name 100MHz 200MHz 300MHz 400MHz 400MHz 2.4 kernel
    Integer arithmetics (dhrys) 115814 231669 348554 466092 450248
    Floating point unit (seconds) 15.50 6.42 3.72 2.77 3.11
    Text rendering (chars/s) 152 354 354 633 456
    Gfx rendering (gops/s) 311.17 753.58 860.25 1270.08 1441.00
    RAM performance (MB/s) 8.09, 4.68 22.22, 15.14 31.00, 18.13 48.83, 26.48 25.78, 16.17
    CF card performance (MB/s, kb/s) 16.77, 63.56 25.53, 70.73 30.76, 72.27 48.52, 77.46 not tested


    Results are weird.. RAM performance under 2.4 kernel can be 26 MB/s in one test, 44 MB/s in other, 33 MB/s in another one. Gfx performance also jumps — 1440 in one attempt, 917 in another…

    I cannot test CF card under 2.4 as I do not have pcmcia-cs installed (using pcmciautils under 2.6 kernel).

  3. argh..

    Today I noticed that blog stopped working;(

    I have to add some magic into .htaccess to switch some PHP flags — one of them will be magic_quotes_gpc which suxx.

    UPDATE: I have to find why plugins stopped working…

    UPDATE II:It was magic_quotes_runtime option.

  4. 4 years of work as PHP programmer

    Today I noticed that 4 years ago I started work at Polnet SA in Wrocław, Poland as PHP programmer. It was times of PHP 4.0.4 when register_globals was normal thing, when using short_tags (< ? ?>) was something which does not bothered me (today it conflict with XML).

    Now portal for which I wrote most of code exist in other form, many sections was removed, not all work — time passed, company died.

  5. 20th Birthday of Commodore Amiga

    It was 20 years ago when Commodore Amiga (the initial name of the Amiga 1000) was unveiled officially at the Lincoln Centre in New York.

    I had Amiga 600 (with HDD and 2MB RAM) then switched to A1200 which got many upgrades like faster CPU (68030/50 and then 68040/40), additional IDE controler and more RAM (64MB FastRAM was very big amount of RAM :)

    Now I don’t have Amiga machine but does not feel that I need one — that time passed away few years ago.

  6. APT repositories

    I don’t have APT repository with ROX-Filer from few months. If you have my website in /etc/apt/sources.list then remove them.

    I have lot of hits to the /apt/* directories which does not exists.

    UPDATE: ROX-Filer is in Debian since 29 Jul 2004 — it’s my second package in Debian (first one was tex-skak).

  7. OPIE developer

    Yesterday I got account on handhelds.org server and R/W access to OPIE source code.

    I use OPIE for over year. From time to time I hacked source a bit and sent patches via opie-devel ML — now I can commit patches directly ;)

  8. Miasta pod skałą

    W poprzednim numerze Przekroju była informacja o nowej książce Marka S. Huberatha “Miasta pod skałą”. Jako że “Gniazdo światów” tego samego autora ciekawą książką jest to uznałem, że i tę nabędę. W sobotę byłem w Empiku, wydałem 39.99zł i jadąc sobie pociągiem przeczytałem ~180 stron. Muszę przyznać, że wciąga i to nieżle — akcja pokręcona maksymalnie.
