WordPress + iPhone + BlogPress

September 9th, 2009 No comments

I recently moved my blog away from Joomla and over to WordPress.

This was for several reasons:
1. Joomla is a pain in the bum for blogging. Its too complex for a blog and I keep forgetting the differences between a “com”, “module” and a “plugin”.
2. Upgrading is a pain in the bum. I just recently noticed that half my content went missing as part of a recent upgrade.
3. I had bought an iPhone and wanted to be able to post while out and about. Getting this going in Joomla was a pain in the bum, (although I discovered after switching to WordPress that it wasn’t really Joomla’s fault).

So, this howto shows you how to run Opera Mini on Linux in glorious 1440×900…. and take advantage of the speed increase.

HOWTO – Running familiar Linux from CF/SD/MMC

September 20th, 2007 No comments

This howto covers one way of running familiar Linux from your CF, SD, or MMC card.

OK, it doesn’t actually boot from SD, but uses a snazzy Linux trick called pivot_root. Which switches over one root with another. This, IMHO, is probably the best way of doing it apart from actually directly booting from SD. Although, I’ve only tried this on a 38xx based iPAQ it should work for all handhelds based on familiar. Heck, it should work for anything really.
