Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-05-21

  • At a virtual conference, listening to myself and @amybarton give a presentation we recorded weeks ago. Surreal to attend my own talk. ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • Yay! @davest hooked me up with a bootable USB stick to install Moblin 2.0 beta on my Eee PC 1000H. Installing now! ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • Test tweet from the integrated “Status” tab in Moblin 2.0. This is slick – Twitter integrated into the OS! ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • @mattg ArsTechnica has a nice writeup of Moblin 2.0 (by @segphault) that might answer better than I can: http://bit.ly/nOTEZ in reply to mattg #
  • @mike_strock You can get it from http://moblin.org (which is getting hammered), or try http://mirrors.kernel.org/moblin in reply to mike_strock #
  • @dbug13 Install was pretty easy. Boot from the USB stick, choose “Install”, selection partition scheme, then let it finish. in reply to dbug13 #
  • @lmachen Try hitting ESC repeatedly during boot, right after power on. It should give you a menu where you choose which device to boot from. in reply to lmachen #
  • @lmachen That changes the boot order in the BIOS, but hitting ESC gives you a “right now,” one-time device boot menu. Try that? in reply to lmachen #
  • “Your reading list has no unread items.” Been a long time since Google Reader told me that. Feels good. ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • “Once there was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it.” #
