Another iPod Touch post

Guess who can access their music and any other's (while running Simplify media server)? Me! I figured out that while I have Simplify running, who ever's I also connected to previously I can browse while connected via WiFi. No need to put new music on my iPod, just stream it now. My internet net was out from 20:00 to 04:30, finally got a hold of my ISP (yes, at 4am) and got it fixed. Within that 8.5 hours, I made a simple picture gallery script (email me if you want it). I have 150 free 4x6" prints down at Superstore. I uploaded some pics and sent the order. The site said one business day (not sure what that means though, can I get it tomorrow or overmorrow...?). Anyway, I uploaded some more pics to my Flickr page so feel free to check them out and maybe leave a comment or two. Anyway, I sorta feel like working a bit more on Torrentino or even Web Host.

Debian on my Eee

I installed Debian on my 701 4GB Eee the other day. Runs perfectly, I couldn't ask for more. The only thing I need to fix is wifi. I either use the MadWifi or the Atheros drivers. Doesn't sounds too hard, I had it working before...apparently. Not sure if sound works or not, I don't use it that much so I disabled it in the BIOS to save power. Something is wrong with my server.... I tried to access it via SSH & HTTP and nothing. Turn on the monitor; kernel panic. Whatever, I rebooted. CRC error. Rebooted; works fine but Apache doesn't start. Anyways, its Sunday time to relax and download some distros I'll post back later...

DIY WiFi pop can dish

Anyone use their Nintendo WiFi [USB] connector? Neither did I, until I found out that I can use it on my Windows machine. Never the less, I inserted it into my Eee (running Backtrack 3) and it worked, instantly. Now, I made my own Pepsi can dish and a LEGO tower. EDIT: I finally booted into Fluxbox :D I do, however, somehow get better reception from my router(s). An average of 10% better signal as compared to the internal Atheros card. Put this has puzzled me: The Nintendo connector only uses WEP (to my knowledge) and doesn't pick up all the networks in the area, making it seem like a short distance key. The Atheros card picks up two additional networks in my area as the connector doesn't. (I'm not too good with guides and instructions, so here it goes:) In short, I took two soda cans, cut off the top and bottom and was left with the outside 'shell'. Cut it down the side and make it about 7.5 cm long, and bending it into a C shape. Get the other pop can and do the same, but around 6 cm long. Shape it to this: . = white space Second Piece |---------| =............= |---------| <- aprox. 6 cm -> First Piece (without slots) |------------------| |.......................| |......................| |------------------| <- aprox. 7.5 cm -> First Piece (with slots) |------------------| |........-.............| |........_............| |------------------| <- aprox. 7.5 cm -> With the first C shape in hand, cut two slots, 1-1.7 cm from the bottom and top. Insert the second piece into the first. With the two pieces inserted, cut two more slots (confuzing? I know) into the second piece, allowing the USB key to slip in. I also made a LEGO tower (as I said above), and mounted the USB key in the dish, atop the tower [using a USB extension cable to work]. More info & pictures to come....
