Few days ago I had to go from work to home just to turn on my desktop computer. Now when I have possibility to remote login to my router I tried to get Wake-On-LAN working.
My desktop PC has 3 network cards:
BusyBox v1.00 (2005.05.25-20:30+0000) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

in near future it will be partially replaced by “wrt54oe” distribution build using OpenEmbedded.
Yesterday I was able to go IRC, watch webpages without having to turn on my desktop PC (which make noise) and it was good. I found 3 new bugs in opie-irc (reported) and I think that in next few days I have to look into GPE for network software.
Thanks to [cc]smart I got Linksys wrt54gs router/AP. Tomorrow will look how to use that little box in my “network” which currently is cablemodem ->-UTP5-> PC ->-BT-> Zaurus C760. When got it working then I could use network without running PC via WiFi card in Zaurus.
Po raz pierwszy w tym roku wygrałem Big Milka. Tym razem patyczek był w Big Fruit (dobre bo truskawkowe 🙂

Dzisiaj (a w zasadzie to jutro bo seans o 00:01 się zaczyna) dowiem się jak doszło do powstania Lorda Vadera a wszystko to z powodu faktu, że idę do Kinepolis na premierę epizodu III Gwiezdnych Wojen (jakbym napisał z małej to fani by mnie zjedli) czyli na “Revenge of the Sith” (jakoś nie lubię polskich tytułów w tym cyklu — pewnie to przez fakt, że wszędzie w dokumentacji odwołania do poszczególnych części jest via ANH, ESB, ROTJ etc.. (nie wymieniam 1 i 2 epizodu bo to nie to samo co IV-VI)).
Today I registered on Mozillazine forums. As usual I wanted to have “Hrw” as loginname but this time I got “this nickname is already taken” message.
First time since I use Hrw as nickname I had to register as Hrwandil (I don’t count those places where login had to be longer then 3 chars).
I maintain some QPF font packages in OpenEmbedded. They are converted from TrueType fonts using “makeqpf” utility which is a part of Qt/Embedded from Trolltech. Today I decided that I won’t try to build own version of that tool.
Why? TT use fscking old freetype version in Qt/E 2.3.10 release which does not compile even on x86…
Finally I bought some speakers to my desktop PC. It is Logitech X-230 and I have to say that they sounds nice 😉
It was one year ago when I pushed first change to OpenEmbedded package metadata.
That does not mean that I started using it year ago — my first submissions was in March 2004 when I started to look into OE. My first submission was SubApplet 1.0.7 which I sent to OE ML in 2004-03-20 — some time later I became maintainer of that package. Then sent some other packages, patches to existing ones etc.
In first days of May 2004 I tried to get image built by OE to boot on my Zaurus. It took few days, three attempts and lots of patching but finally I booted into text console. Most of that work was applied into repository and I got invitation into Open Embedded team. Who will not want to go in? I wanted and joined.
Since then I had ~650 changesets to packages and some OE core/BitBake changes. We released 3 versions of Familiar distribution and 3 OpenZaurus distros.
