Syslog server on Lenny

So, I installed VMWare Server on my Windows Server 2003 box the other day. Downloaded a Debian Lenny image and got it running. Never dealt with VMWare Server so it's pretty neat to configure virtual machines from a convenient web interface. The web interface was having issues at first, of which I tracked down to IIS. The web UI runs on port 8333 and IIS runs on port 80 of course. Disabled IIS and the web UI was up and running.

 

iOS 4.01

With my iPhone 3G jailbroken with iOS 4.0, lots of other users have been experienced cell phone reception trouble. I tried it myself and covered the left side and saw my signal bars drop by 4. I've read around the internet and its rumoured that 4.01 was supposed to drop today to fix the antenna issues. I'd assume before Friday, there's going to be a fix out there. I, myself, didn't have too much trouble with getting a signal.

Jailbroken 4.0 on iPhone 3G

So, after a long time of tinkering I finally got it working.

Get 4.0 (stock 8A293) on your iPhone
Run redsn0w 0.9.5b
Be patient!  - This took a bit for me. Once redsn0w says it's done, the screen on your iPhone will display what it's doing (flashing NOR) and a running pineapple(?).  
4.0 seems to run faster on my 3G than 3.1.3.

Tried to make this post quick as I'm off to bed!

Place of education

With school finished with the exception of an exam or two and my domain back, I think I'll now have the motivation to get shit done.

Cold coffee

For my love of coffee, I tried cold brewing the other day. More convenient, in my opinion.

7 (or so) table spoons of your favourite coffee in a mason jar and fill it up near the top of water. Let it sit over night, or at least 12 hours. Strain that lovely juice into another jar. You now have cold-brewed coffee. Pour into a cup, add milk, sugar and enjoy :) 

iPhone borken

Yes, I purposely spelled that wrong. Anyway, the entire left of the touchscreen on my iPhone doesn't work. Plugged it in at night, then didn't work in the morning. So, I've had to suffer only using the right side of the screen for the last two weeks. Going to have to restore back to factory defaults, package it up and send it off.

 

End of year

I wish I had time to work on my projects (Torrentino.net expired a little while ago) since most of them need updating. WorkSimple is in a somewhat stable state. Good news though, I might be getting geekness.eu back. I was too lazy to renew it and lost it.

 

Nothing new has happened, making this a rather boring blog post (nothing out of the usual). Maybe once I get my domain back I'll get my ass to work and fix up this site (broken links and such) and some of my unfinished projects.

 

PHP IRC bot

Been bored lately, so I'd thought I'd make an IRC bot in PHP. I wasn't sure how they worked, so I found this to be great: http://www.hawkee.com/snippet/5330/

I added a little more to it, using switch() instead of an if statement. So, instead of:


if ($rawcmd[1] == "!sayit") {

I changed it to

 

 switch(rtrim($rawcmd[1])) {

 

Znaj

Blog has turned to shit, no post in almost a month now. I guess due to the loss of my domain (geekness.eu), there's less traffic and less of a motivation to do anything. Any links to this site would be using the geekness.eu domain.

Again, my work has come to a standstill. Nothing new has happened. Absolutely nothing. Guess I should start doing something. Happy that I can get Opera on my iPhone though, heh.

 

Yet another blog post telling my readers that I'm alive...

Progress on nothing

Domain expired little while ago (geekness.eu), so all my links are now dead. Ugh. I didn't raise any money whatsoever through donations so I couldn't renew the domain. The URL for my blog is the original, easton.4fd.us
