XO Update: F11 based image
This past weekend I updated to the new XO-1 firmware image following the directions at this website. The process was simple and painless. I believe this was the first significant update since Sugar was spun off from the OLPC project, and I had long given up hope of seeing any significant updates for the XO-1. […]
Intel D510MO Atom
I had a theory that the Intel D510 CPU would be good enough for several tasks, including Linux audio (Ardour, Bristol, PureData, etc), NAS device, and HTPC (home theater PC). Not at the same time though, of course. I bought one of the Intel D510MO boards from Logic Supply. This board isn’t going to be […]

OpenSolaris on the Intel D510MO Atom
I wanted to tryOpenSolaris on the new Atom board on a seperate disk before the machine got settled into normal use (normal use covered in this post).

Upon finding […]
Zones on a single server
A few months ago my co-located Solaris server was hit by a root kit that setup a IRC bot. It appeared that it got it by attacking one of the off the shelf web apps I use. To prevent having to do a complete rebuild in the future if this happens again, I decided to […]

Meet The Newbie
Yep, that’s David alright. Deb has the details elsewhere for those that follow her. He is less crusty looking now then an in the picture, but still has the IV in.
Samsung BD-P1590, semi-review
This is an affordable BluRay player that also supports some streaming media. It works with Blockbuster Direct, Netflix, Youtube, and Pandora radio. As far as I can see, Netflix and YouTube are increasingly common features, but Pandora is unique to this device. To cut to the chase, I rather like this device. I especially like […]
Sorry, no picture this time since I was taking it to a church function. I think that the seasoning could use some tweaking, maybe a bit less cayenne. Also, the cooking time for me should have been closer to the smaller number listed, rather than the larger number. The one time I did make it, […]
