Today I saw 4°C and light (very light) snowing outside.. Brrr.. winter is going back?
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 🙂
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..
During weekend I finally moved OpenZaurus website to WordPress. It looks similiar to this site as I’m admin there.
I hope that it will get more attention from users…
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 🙂 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.
Today I started to use wrist brace on my left hand. It limit my hand movement a lot (I cannot write as fast as before on keyboard) but pain was gone.
Picture is taken from vendor website — that’s why it show right hand.
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 🙂
W związku z problemami z nadgarstkami poszukuję sprawnej nieuszkodzonej klawiatury Microsoft Natural Keyboard Elite (najchętniej 2 sztuki). Mam już taką jedną i pisze mi się na niej wygodniej niż na zwykłej klawiaturze. Jednak by miało to sens muszę mieć jedną w domu a drugą w pracy (trzecia pójdzie do Ani do pracy). Poszukuję dokładnie tej wersji gdyż jest to chyba ostatnia klawiatura Microsoftu z normalnym obłożeniem klawiszy. Następne mają kursory w kształcie “+” zamiast odwróconego “T” a jestem zbyt przyzwyczajony do normalnego layoutu.
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.
As You can see I finally managed to get WordPress running. This is 3th (or 4th) version of my website and I hope that this time it will stay for much longer and that I will use it more often to publish some OpenEmbedded related articles and informations.
Some texts will be written in English, some in Polish language (especially those about how to make something).
Old content was available as Wiki now is moved into WordPress.
