ok..so I’ve ordered just one NIC for the box, and I’m going to connect it up to the home LAN and see how things go. The HD on the box is still only 1GB so it’s a bit limiting as to what exactly this box can do, so I’m hunting around for cheap HD’s in the region of 20GB, that should be enough. One option mentioned today was a UT server…we’ll see. Maybe I could combine a UT2003 server and webserver in one, but I don’t know if a P75 chip would cope.
Here’s an article on the new SHARP PDA running linux, pretty damn good revew
see the more pics and the specs here
..and it’s problems…
1. reset the thermometer on my watch…it always reads way too hot!!
2. Work out how to do the timer function on my digital camera so that I can take a group photos.
the keyboard has turned up, but it’s still in the box, the box itself is also still in the box..not good. I’ll find some time soon to set it up running APACHE as the curent web server is becoming unreliable again…oh for a web server that just works!!
do i need to take an altimeter watch on a walk around the coast i.e. almost at sea level..hmm…but it also tells the temperature and has a compass and a barometer too!
not a right lot going on at the mo. Mainly planning and packing for this weekend’s two dayer, 32 miles along the pembrokeshire coastline. So hopefully some nice photo’s. I’ve written another gear review for the OUTDOORSMAGIC website, this time it was my North Face Pamir Gore Windstopper jacket. I’ve bought a few more bit’s of kit recently, including another wicking T-Shirt, this time by Berghaus and a Columbia wide brim sun hat as I’m sure the weather is going to be great. The 5 day weather forcasts are just starting to cover the weekend but it looks dry which is a start.
we’ve spent the weekend visiting friends and family in the Cambridge area. haven’t logged on once, but I must confess to reading my emails via wap at a service station
yep…the new SONY palmtop looks good but it also looks expnsive. You can read the WIRED article here [via gizmodo]
