Off to Defcon…BRB.
So last weekend I went camping with my little brother and some friends (who had never been camping before). It has been some time since I’ve been camping and, while it was really hot out, it was also alot of fun. We managed a campsite down on the shore of Lake Texana, which was great because there was a constant breeze that helped stave off the heat. I got to take a few pictures with my new camera. Some of wild life and some…a little more frivolous. ;D
This is how I spent last weekend:
Went to visit a friend in Wichita Falls over the weekend and after seeing The Fantastic Mr. Fox, running around town, and a little pottery, we loaded up on snacks and played Starfox: Assault for a few hours before setting up our computers and hitting the RPG groups hard and fast.
I know what the ladies like. ;3
I own a black fedora. Yesterday, my youngest brother asked me to bring over my fedora over because he wanted to make one out of duct tape. I was initially skeptical of how this would work out but, after seeing what he was trying to do and the trouble he was having with it, my artistic side was inspired to take over the task of sculpting this hat made of tape. :D
Ok, my Zipit’s WPA wireless is now working correctly. I was being dumb and was doing it wrong.
It’s all good now, through. Using apt package manager is so much easier than ipkg…and with the number of packages Debian has for the arm processor, there’s little you need to go out and cross compile.
… not that I’m not going to put gcc and make on it. <.< XD
Now that I have an optimal style for the device (Bity works quite well on the 320×240 screen), I can set to figuring out what all else I want on it.
…I might need to move up to an 8GB microSD card. o.o
Managed to jump on the bandwagon with the ZipIt hackers. Purchased a ZipIt Z2 from E-Bay and flashed it with a new linux kernel. Now I can boot the thing from a microSD [in a miniSD adapter] and run Debian! :D
In fact, I’m posting this from the device itself. WEP works ok…just have to get WPA working better and I’m set.
More info to follow!
Ok, so I know it’s been forever since I started restyling this thing and making it something much better than the home brew POS that I was working on. Work just has a really bad habit of totally killing my motivation to do anything. -.-
At any rate, I have this thing styled well enough, linked to my galleries and stuff. Hopefully I’ll be able to post more things like thoughts, code, and stuff.
Wish me luck.
