Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-09-19

  • Busy day. W’ed FH this morning, got a haircut an had an awesome reuben for lunch at Rose’s Deli, now to crank on a few things until weekend. #
  • Doing evil, unspeakable things to this little Compal MID. Like trying to install Windows on it. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @chippy It came with a Red Flag/Midinux distro (I think) from Compal. I’m trying to get Moblin running. #
  • Whoa. I think Windows XP is actually going to install on this MID. The question will be: what devices will have Windows drivers? #
  • @jmoriarty Sweet! Didn’t know you were getting a Dell Mini. Lemme know what you think of it compared to the Eee PC 901. And have fun! πŸ™‚ #
  • Got Windows XP installed and booting just fine on the Compal MID. Now, to hunt for drivers! πŸ™‚ #
  • @treowth @blogan Wait, what video is this that I’m reportedly in? #
  • @tersteeg just told me that Apple is recalling all iPhone 3G power adapters, because the prongs can break off in the outlet. Yikes. πŸ™ #
  • @jmoriarty Yes, I’m documenting everything. Will have a few posts on both netbook and MID adventures up soon. #
  • @blogan Yeah, but what IS it? πŸ˜‰ #
  • @kellyrfeller I think Microsoft, Sun, Adobe, and IBM are also good examples of some online Social Media activities and principles. #
  • Just ordered my replacement/recalled iPhone 3G power adapter. Have you? Wouldn’t want you to die, or burn your house down, or anything… #
  • Link to Apple page to order replacement iPhone 3G power adapter: http://tinyurl.com/3m7sf6 #
  • When talking about computers, there has to be a better word/term for “not a server” than “client”. That’s so archaic! What should it be? #
  • I know this MID is a Development Platform, for Engineering Use Only, but MAN is it frustrating trying to get a semi-working OS installed P-( #
  • @chippy Yeah, I need to connect with the Intel people doing the bits for Moblin. It’s all open source, though, so I’ve been trying stuff. #
  • Enough nerdery. Time for date night and weekend family time! πŸ™‚ #

  1. Hi Josh, we’d love for your feedback, comments, etc on the Moblin mailing lists or on IRC. Please join in and we’d be happy to help as best we can – note I haven’t had a chance to play with the Compal MID yet, but we do have a couple in the office, and others have been playing with them.
