Dell 720 on SuSE 9.3

July 22, 2005Category: Random
Using all kind of info off the net, I've figured it out: you can actually use it: Download the z600 tarball from Lexmark Extract all it's components (few TCL scripts and RPMs) install the RPMs (the cups one needs --nodeps to install, as it's compiled against a oddly numbered version of cups…

Well, it has been a long time... I've been to Sicily for 3 weeks almost and it was great. Lots of things seen, lots of photos, lots of great fish and nice dishes (FOOD). and lots of memories. more updates on the wireless bit: most parts are done, including the logic bit. Now I need to do the part…

C optimisation

April 8, 2005Category: Random
I was trying to optimize a bit of code and found out that 2 if() statements are quicker than a case with true/false. and an if/else case is WAY quicker!!! All with various optimisation levels (from nothing to O3 to O3 + architecture optimisations). Odd. one might believe that the switch/case…

On wireless and other things

Well, my automatic wireless thing is progressing nicely. Now I've got the Qt4 event loop and threads in place and it does the polling (and returns values alright). All I have to do now is process them. And that's cool. I've already got the logic described somewhere. The funny thing is that it's not…

On world, wireless and other things

It's been a while... I'm watching in the last couple of days stuff about the Pope (Janus Paulus II) and it's impossible not to shed a tear when seeing what this man has achieved and done... Impressive. If only the other leaders could learn something from such an amazing life. God rest his soul. It's…

Wireless news

The daemon will be Qt 4. That's because Qt4 offers a simple event loop pretty much the way glib does. This is great, because I can have all the Qt goodies (threads, mutex-es, signals) and D-BUS too. -- This is a really old post published originally on my blogspot blog

Sick and back again

March 21, 2005Category: Random
Well, I had tonsils with white spots on them. Actually, they were covered in white :(. It hurt like hell, so, in about 30 years, I went to the hospital for a few days (... I.V. stuff). Laura was great during this time and stayed with me all the time. Worked on the wireless thing a lot lately, and it…

Last weekend we rented a car (again) and went towards Waterford to buy a couple of wine classes from the factory, with the quote "but I want to see the ocean" in mind.. so it was a very nice trip, got to drive about 400k, but unfortunately we missed the opening hours of the waterford thing... ..and…

Well, I've got a new fav as far as breakfast is concerned :) "continental"(ish) as in: blue cheese spread on toast with various confitures. and milk with coffee too :) i've tried brie (camembert-like), goats cheese and blue cheese. Goat's cheese is quite strong so it dominates most confitures i…

Wireless update

January 27, 2005Category: Random
Well, I've updated my laptop and desktop to SuSE 9.2. Is very nice, but still the profile switching is a bit heavy-duty for me (all I need is to change wireless networks automatically...). So I'm back writing my wireless daemon and now I'm having fun with QDom* and XML in python :) I've got a key…
