October 31, 2010Category: Hardware
Note: This is a really old post transferred from Laurii for historical and consolidation purposes. We were sick and tired of having to switch on the TV (and the amp) to be able to listen to music from the Popcorn Hour. So I started to investigate what sort of streaming systems are available. The…

Custom saving path for FileField

August 30, 2010
Saving FileFields is pretty annoying anyway (all the manual stuff, saving chunks by hand...). The top bother is actually the limited way of creating paths: In MEDIA_ROOT , only with strftime arguments. While this does limit the number of files in a directory, it's not as customisable as it…

MacPorts Berkley-DB 4 problem and work around

August 15, 2010
I've upgraded my MacPro's hardware a bit the other day and I've noticed that something went bye-bye when running eclipse . Namely eclipse itself wasn't working anymore. So I thought: What a great opportunity to do an update (eclipse, jdk...). And MacPorts . Because I wanted to upgrade my python to…

DBus and Qt programming

March 22, 2007Category: Software
For the past few days I've been trying to get more complex data sent via D-Bus. As one would say here in Ireland: Je'zus H. Christ Playing with python was easy. There are lots of examples on communicating complex data structures. But with Qt... It's a bit more complex, because there are only a set…

Some updates...

February 15, 2007Category: Software
Note: This is a really old post transferred from Laurii for historical and consolidation purposes. First message! I've got my first D-BUS message sent from the style UI to the server. It's an "add style" message, but there's not much beyond this progress. The upside is that I think the D-BUS…
