blog boredom. I haven't posted for awhile I know. I've been so stacked working three jobs. There was an interesting article I was reading out of slashdot The Digital Bedouins and the Backpack Office today. It describes the telecommuting workforce and how they travel around while maintaining their working hours.

There's a new single card solution for DS roms now. Before you had to use the passme2 and a card reader but now you just need the M3 DS Simply and it'll let you run a rumble pack in the GBA slot. This is great news because in the DS Lite the classic M3 Player sticks out too far and the PassMe2 is prone to freezing if the card is bumped if you leave it in. I expect to order this one in march.

Watch this space in january, I'm planning a new site network to lead me back into contracting in the new year. I'm getting really interested into Search Engine Optimization (SEO) lately. It seems like its a lot of black box testing of the various tricks that google and over crawlers use to rank sites. Pretty much the main thing to do is to write good content. I'm planning on writing 250 words a day in the new year. In the mean time here's some links to get you started

I had a dream about DotNetNuke CMS last night, how pathetic is that? Well I'm off to NYC in a couple weeks to flush out the plan for next year with my CEO and the rest of the team. Which is nothing compared to Threeboy going to the Playboy Mansion next week.

Well its been awhile, I've been neglecting this blog for the last 4 months it seems. Since then I've setup a flickr account. I'm on last.fm. I also started in on fire poi last january and I've done it a few times this summer. Loads of fun.

If you've seen my IM reconnecting every 15min its cause of the new 188.8.131.52 version of azureus. It took me awhile to track down that it was the reason. Mainly cause I don't trust my linksys router. I downgraded to 184.108.40.206 and everythings fine again. I think it might have just been that I did too many auto-updates because when the new jar files are installed from the auto update it's not the same as the distribution package that you can download.

really I didn't go anywhere so I can't give you a "sorry I've been in tibet" excuse or something. I've been really busy and working lateon a side project on top of work. That and my day job is kicking off with a new version of the training software I've been working of for the last year. This time it's got a cms building flash files, pretty cool.

So I was trying to get starwars battlefront 2 to load but it kept crashing at the loading screen all the time. Then one time It got all the way thru and I managed to play a level and then it crashed. It got me thinking, it's probably something specific to my machine. So I searched and searched about how it was crashing to desktop and it turns out that its got a problem with dual core cpu's and you have to set the affinity of the application to run in uniprocessor.

truenuff backend is up with a whole lot of additional functionality. Give it a look threeboy is in the process of doing truenuff tv too and will be putting up new comics this year too.

So I've had problems with winamp dying out and my work computer needing a reboot before it starts working again so I've been playing around with Pandora which is a music discovery service that you put in the artist or song you want to hear more of and it finds similar artists.

I had a couple sick days on friday and monday and got over a cold that was dogging me friday morning. I loaded up on multivitamins and orange juice most of my four day weekend.

I was out in Ashburnham this weekend and it was really relaxing. I realized that my list of games that I have to play through is getting longer and longer. That first year of living in london with nothing but my old laptop really made it hard to play anything but snes emulators and my gba sp. Now I've got my PSP, PC, GBA SP and I'll be getting a Nintendo DS shortly too. That's a pretty full platform list.

It's funny how copyright has become an oxymoron of late. We live in a time of never ending copyright extensions. A lot of work that should have entered the public domain is still being enforced by industry associations. One example of this is how even "Happy Birthday" requires royalities to appear in movies which is why you never see it in any. It reminds me of Hugh Grant's character in About a boy where his dad had written a christmas song that was supporting him through royalties. Yes radio stations are commercial organizations and can pay, but should film makers be affected by that. The royalties after long periods of time have often been bought out by corporations in order to bring in a sustainable revenue instead of supporting the artists decendants. Do we really need to pay Michael Jackson for the rights to use music from the Beatles.

So it's been a big week in the psp scene. First off a buffer overflow was found in the PSP 2.0 firmware and then the PSP firmware downgrader was released. The story starts last year in japan when the psp was originally released with the 1.0 firmware. People began to develop homebrew apps and emulators to run off their memory sticks. Then by the time sony released the PSP in north america it came with the 1.5 firmware. The 1.5 fireware kept the homebrew applications from running but in June of this year they released a loader to load homebrew apps and umd binaries. Then later Fastloader was released to be able to run PSP Iso images. Everything was great in psp land until sony released firmware 1.51,1.52,2.0 which fixed the exploit that was being used to execute apps. Now fast forward to the present and 2.0 is now able to run apps and theres a working downgrader so any psp can be made to run games. The next step will be to see a release of a loader on the 2.0 firmware so that users can run games and use the 2.0 web browser. Luckily my psp had 1.5 on it.
**Update: here's a walkthrough on hackaday for the downgrader.

14 days until the O2 XDA Exec comes out on October 10th. It was listed on the O2 site for £199.99 but they've pulled down that site since. I haven't really used my NGage QD much for games but I know with wifi and a vga screen I'll be using it alot for movies and internet use. I plan on picking up a sandisk 2GB SD card with it. Here's the specs
Windows Mobile 5.0 (which includes 'persistent memory')
Posted by Eternity on 08/24/05, 09:47:58 am
so the HTC Universal is almost here. Hopefully it'll be around when I get back from vancouver. If you haven't heard the specs its: Windows Mobile 5.0, built-in QWERTY keyboard, UMTS/WCDMA, a large, rotating VGA touch screen, 1.3 megapixel digital camera, 96MB of ROM, 128MB of RAM, 520MHz Intel XScale processor, SD memory card slot, WiFi, and Bluetooth. and 3G.
I think thats faster than my parents computer.

I'm back to vancouver for my little sisters wedding next week and I'm going to try and get my hot food tolerance up to a vindiloo before I go, which means another trip down to brick lane next week with the lads. I've been having some trouble with my servers... well all but the windows server back in Canada. That was due to an unexpected power failure due to my mom being spontaneous and turning stuff off cause there might have been a power outage. I didn't look for that rating on my ups.

Hey everybody I'm still around, I just got back from greece last weekend and I've been having to walk a lot around london cause the tube is closed more than usual. Feeling really tired this week for some reason, I've been getting home and trying to read harry potter and ending up just falling asleep. threeboy was being an ass and kept telling me what the ending to the book was, it doesn't matter cause I still have to read it anyways. I started reading a copy I got off the net and things weren't adding up that well and there were descrepences and finally I realized I was reading a fake copy so I got the real one. I'm off to pakefield this week for my churchs week away called home focus. I got a friend of mine to make me some fire poi so hopefully he's come through on that.

I'm looking at a new system again, here's the specs
Athlon 64 4000+ (2.4GHz) Socket 939 OEM
my work subsidizes up to £2000 of computer purchases a year so I might as well make a dent in that. The LCD's are too expensive over here to get a nice 23" so I'll just settle for a 20". I'll set my current 15" LCD as a secondary monitor and eventually hook it up to an mac mini and use Synergy to control it from my PC with the same mouse and keyboard so that it operates as a secondary montior on a second system. You can even stop it from moving over to the other desktop by using the scroll lock key. Its still under developement too so they'll be adding support for more than two controllable systems.
I'm off to the London Geek Dinner tomorrow night which should be some really cool chats with some of the heavyweights out there.
