Thanks Nyko, now I have an unusable Xbox!

A little while ago, I wrapped my 360 in a  wood Oblivion Xbox 360 skin. Lately, I've been getting more RROD's than usual. I'd be in the midst of a game and it'd shut off with three red flashing red rings. I've had the Nyko Intercooler on my Xbox for the last couple years and, I thought, would make the RROD problem go away. Apparently not. So today, I took off the Intercooler.

Oh, great

So, my SCSI drive came in the other day. Dropped it in a drive bay and fired up the server. But oh no, beeping arose. Looked up the beep code and now it's about the processor. Either the processor isn't seated well or I need to replace it. Awesome. I probably should have grounded myself before hand. Strange enough, if I change the jumper settings on the motherboard, from the default 700Mhz to 750Mhz, the beeping stops. Dell says the default speed is 550Mhz but I'm not sure if these are the default processors.

PowerEdge 6400

 

So I got this Dell PowerEdge 6400 and wow. First, this thing is gigantic. Eight hot swappable SCSI bays in the front. Free is a good price ;)

WorkSimple 1.3.4 released!

WorkSimple 1.3.4 has been released! Numerous fixes are included with this release, along with the removal of the uploader module as it had security risks. Download here.

SHOUTcast server

As finicky as I am about music, I'm one of those guys that'll change the song halfway through it. So, I thought I'll set up a local SHOUTcast radio to prevent that and create less distractions.

Download SHOUTcast DNAS either beta or stable (I chose stable) from here. Edit sc_serv.ini in the SHOUTcast program files folder. The only thing you need to change is your password and whether you want a public or private server. Next, download Winamp to make it easier to manage. Also download the SHOUTcast plugin for Winamp (here) and the null output plugin (here).

 

WorkSimple 1.3.3 released!

That's right! After almost a year, WorkSimple 1.3.3 is out! You can now edit and delete posts. Other little bugs are fixed too. Download here. See the upgrade tutorial for upgrade instructions.

Some DeLi Linux packages

Since the DeLi Linux project is no more, there's no updated packages. Of course, one could upgrade to ConnochaetOS but that's no fun. The packages for ConnochaetOS are .pkg.tar.xz, which don't install in DeLi for som reason. Anyway, I compiled a couple packages just to test out the Arch packaging system. Here's a repository for those still using DeLi since the DeLi site is down.

See attachements.

 

iStatd binary for Solaris 10 x86

Here's iStatd compiled on Solaris 10 x86 for those lazy not to compile it. Also make sure you have libxml2_devel installed. See the attachment. 

(I take no credit for the development of iStatd, rather presented is a binary package of it)

Nexenta

Sweet and salty popcorn best describes Nexenta. OpenSolaris kernel but still using many GNU tools and such: the best of both worlds. The balls robustness of Solaris with easiness of the GNU userland, Debian to be specific, makes it easy to use Solaris. I've just got it running and I quite love it. I love Debian by itself, especially for apt-get.
