Is Mighty Mouse (err Phone) what I need?

Mobile Phone Synchronization Service – MightyPhone

This service looks pretty cool. An online web based calender/contatcs that will sync with Notes AND my p910i!

I guess the same could be done for free, after all they are just using SyncML, but this does sounds cool, and at 30 dollars a year, quite tempting!!

It’s L-i-n-u-x, that is an Operating System

www.centos.org – News – CentOS in the News – It’s L-i-n-u-x, that is an Operating System

This has now been everywhere, but it is truly one of the funniest things I have read for a while.

As a poor support person my admiration is unbounded by the patience this guy shows!!

Texas arresting drunks in bars – Peculiar Postings – MSNBC.com

Holy fuck…….! Are these guys gonna arrest people for being sick in hospitals, for being fat in restaurants, or being mad religious nutters in Church?

Hmm on second thoughts perhaps the last two that should be true!

BBC – Police suspended over naked snaps

BBC NEWS | England | Tyne | Police suspended over naked snaps

CCTV is not a clear cut argument. Apart from the arguments of does it prevent crime (moving crime to places that are not covered by CCTV, for example), there is a major potential for abuse. Here’s a prime example.

Who really watches the watchers? I always feel uncomfortable when I think that somebody could be watching me pick my nose!! or if I do something stupid, I could end up on the latest voyeuristic TV show.

Phone fixed

Well. Since I am such a conscientious guy, I’d taken a backup at the end of Feb. So a simple reformat of the filesystem, quick restore from backup!!

et voila, moi telefono workee un autre vez!

p910i no work!

Well a bad side affect of using a PDA as your phone, is when it goes tits up!!!
I forgot to monitor the filesystem space on my p910i, and got to within a few 100kb of a full system. A few txts then filled it up and left me with a very very slowly working phone (I guess it uses the flash memory as swapspace?).
I’ve now freed up approx 24mb (out of a total of 64Mb), and the dammed thing is still acting up. I cannot receive/send txts. nor use the phone at all. What the buggery fuck have I done!!

Oh well! I’m sure it will get sorted soon!!

A Look at GNOME 2.14

A Look at GNOME 2.14

As you may know I really like Gnome. It’s a dammed fine Desktop. with beagle (almost realtime filesystem search n indexing!), and other cool stuff, it’s way in front of any desktop. Well apart from OSX of course!!

Even across the otherside of the world, I well empathise in how I would feel if a ugly arrogant Supermarket blighted my home in building their crappy shop!

Here I feel aggrieved as to the quality of their food. At least my scenery is not spoilt by their greed as well!
