A boy and his laptop

My name is Tony, and I bought an XO Laptop for my son, Miguel. Although he's three, I'm hoping this will be a laptop he can grow older with.

21:55, 4 January 2008 (EST) I have a server at my house (currently a web/mail/file server for various websites I run) that I'm trying to add XS Server capability on. I'm using Ubuntu though, and so I'm working to get the XS Software to work on it.

The server's capabilities are: Intel Pentium D 930, 4 GB of memory, 500 GB of hd space (more will be added as needed should it be necessary.

I'm in the process of getting a WG111 USB Wireless Adaptor to serve as a School node. I'll post details of how it's going at some point.

02:51, 5 January 2008 (EST) Forum Postings from my part of the world. Huzzah!

18:43, 5 January 2008 (EST) Had to use the WPA Fix The final option, with the shell script, worked wonders for me (WPA2, 13 character passcode)

10:05, 7 January 2008 (EST) Spend most of Sunday trying to get the Xvid drivers to work with totem (which comes built-in to the xo. Didn't work. I'll continue working on it (since all of my videos are Divx/Xvid format.) *shrugs*

11:29, 10 January 2008 (EST) Finished most of the Hamachi page. If you find it useful, Let me know!

17:11, 10 February 2008 (EST) Sorry about lack of entries. I've been busy with school, and my son has the computer more than I do. I'll have some updates someday.


I detail how to install Hamachi on my Hamachi page.


I'm working on how to install Pidgin at my Pidgin page. More will be up as I get a chance to work on it.
