Po polsku czy po angielsku?

Wczoraj jedna znajoma zapyta艂a co u mnie s艂ycha膰. Pogadali艣my chwil臋 i poda艂em jej linka do tej strony. Pad艂o pytanie czemu nie pisz臋 po polsku.

Tak wi臋c czemu ten serwis jest w tak du偶ym stopniu po angielsku? W zasadzie od jakiego艣 czasu coraz wi臋cej dyskusji tocz臋 w j臋zyku angielskim — g艂贸wnie ze wzgl臋du na projekty, kt贸rymi zajmuj臋 si臋 w tzw. “wolnym czasie”. Jest to OpenEmbedded, OpenZaurus, OPIE i wszystko co z nimi zwi膮zane. Co prawda jest nieco os贸b w Polsce zainteresowanych tematem ale jak na razie spotka艂em ich raptem kilka — pad艂o kilka pyta艅 jak zrobi膰 to i tamto na Zaurusie czy IPaq. Z niekt贸rych odpowiedzi skleci艂em teksty, kt贸re wida膰 w menu (w obu j臋zykach).

Kto wie — mo偶e zaczn臋 pisa膰 cz臋艣ciej w obu j臋zykach?

Bluetooth and C760

In Monday I got BlueTooth CF card from lardman. Getting it to connect with my desktop equipped with USB BlueTooth dongle was pain… until I restarted Zaurus — after this they both connect and works ok. Now I can surf the web without any cables 馃檪

Hint for those who will try the same — in Debian all what I had to do was switching “pand” ON in /etc/default/bluez-utils — then some work on configuring “bnep0” on both sides and it works.

Next step will be WiFi — but first I have to buy WiFi card for my desktop. But who knows.. maybe first I will try to bridge “usb0” with “bnep0” to have one connection nevermind which method of connection I will use..

C760 arrived

In wednesday I got mail from customs — my C760 arrived and I have to pay 22% VAT. Today I was there, spent 216 PLN (88 AUD) on VAT and got my new toy.

C760 looks nice but original Japanese ROM is hard to use so I started from flashing OZ 3.5.3 on it. OPIE looks nice in VGA resolution 馃檪 After fixing all misc “why it is so small” problems I started to install software installed on my “collie” and still had >20MiB free space on / — it’s great to not have to use SD/CF card to keep applications.

I will have C760 :)

Thx to Richard Jackson I will have Sharp Zaurus C760 PDA with some extra hardware. This will allow me to extend my work on OpenZaurus with supporting also 2.6 kernel.

Thought it was about time I gave something back to the community and it seems like everyone would benfit if you had a bit more kit to test on so I have decided to donate my 760 along with a 256 sd card and a D-Link DCF-660W wireless card plus a bluetooth USB dongle.

Today is a great day 馃檪

Poszukiwana klawiatura

W zwi膮zku z problemami z nadgarstkami poszukuj臋 sprawnej nieuszkodzonej klawiatury Microsoft Natural Keyboard Elite (najch臋tniej 2 sztuki). Mam ju偶 tak膮 jedn膮 i pisze mi si臋 na niej wygodniej ni偶 na zwyk艂ej klawiaturze. Jednak by mia艂o to sens musz臋 mie膰 jedn膮 w domu a drug膮 w pracy (trzecia p贸jdzie do Ani do pracy). Poszukuj臋 dok艂adnie tej wersji gdy偶 jest to chyba ostatnia klawiatura Microsoftu z normalnym ob艂o偶eniem klawiszy. Nast臋pne maj膮 kursory w kszta艂cie “+” zamiast odwr贸conego “T” a jestem zbyt przyzwyczajony do normalnego layoutu.

Pages cleaning

Today I created cleaner structure of all “Pages”, They are now split into Polish one and English one. “OPIE i TTF” is now translated to English — maybe someone find it useful (write a comment about it).

I also wrote page about donations.
