I followed Samba for Arch Linux and the Arch Linux Arm Guide to Samba to get Samba working on my Raspberry Pi. This version of Arch Arm is using systemd to manage services, so there is no more /etc/rc.conf file to edit and no rc.d command available to start anything (as the Arch Linux Arm […]
Apple computer sells for $210,700 In a time when most personal computers were sold as self-assembly kits, the Apple-1 broke new ground as the first personal computer sold with a fully assembled motherboard. Fellow Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who attended the auction in London, threw in an autographed letter with the sale. Wozniak said he […]

After updating the firmware via the network connection, the Sony BDP-S360 died. It just flashes “SYS ERR” on the screen now and Sony’s eSupport says it will have to be sent in for repairs. In 7 to 10 days, not including shipping time, I may (or may not) get back a functional player. I sure […]
Installed MythDora on a box cobbled together from parts and plugged it into the new TV. Bought a cheap cable card off ebay and plugged it in.
