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!

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.

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...

Quick post is quick

Life's been the same, my blogging life has swindled down as well. I have an old 5" TV/radio (it has a handle on top!) of which I connected to a VCR hooked to one of my spare computers. You get a mess of cables and a very very small monitor. I had to sit an inch away from it to read anything.

Sysode has caught my interest again, I've added some new features too. Fixed some bugs and added the ability for public viewing of the project, check it out.

So it just had to be the Windows box

About last week my Windows Server [2003] (I had 2008 on there, then went back to 2003) server wouldn't boot. Since it's not accessed externally, I run TVersity to transcode by movies of which I watch on my 360.  

So, it wouldn't boot up which was great. Kept going into an endless loop, after POST it would keep rebooting. Dead RAM? You'd think it would beep if it was. But nope. Swapped the power supply and still nothing. Loose connection to the case fan? Still, nothing. Only other object that was still plugged in was the hard drive. Unplugged it. Booted normally (though it couldn't since it was the only one). Awesome. Ended up re-installing Server 2003 last night, turned out fine. 

Still puzzles me that it wouldn't boot at all. BIOS detected it fine, but once it tried to boot from the hard drive an endless loop occurred. Working well now, which is a surprise.
