APC Wireless day 1

Submitted by msameer on Thu, 13/07/2006 - 1:22am

OK, So to continue the last part. We spent the 12 hours in Istanbul in the Airport Hotel. They gave us a room for free. The flight to Casablanka was really boring. 5 hours is too long especially when it was delayed and the end result was a 2 hours late departure.

The moment they announced that we are going to "El dar El Baida" which is the Arabic name of casablanca (As I knew later) I started to panic.
Damn! We are supposed to go to casa. What the HELL are they doing ?? I then discovered (Diaa told me actually) that they are the same.

We arrived at 8 pm Casablanca time (GMT). The trip to Ifrane took like 4 hours but we stopped to eat. We arrived at the university by 1 am (24 hours travelling).

We slept and woke up next day. The first day was mainly an introduction to wireless, we also configured some access points. We had a small introduction to wikis.

I'm unable to exchange money until now which means that we can't even get water to drink.

The food here is mainly a mix between sweet and non-sweet things. Like chicken (Among other things) plus sugar!

I can say that I'm eating like a PIG! Damn, A lot of food here.

In the class, We can find WiFi and I can check my mail but in the room, you they blocked both pop and SMTP. I managed to bypass this but I'll put it in another post ;-)

It's now 1:15 am (Which is 4:15 am EET). Diaa is sleeping. We had a lot of jokes today during nd after the dinner ;-)

The reverse path to Morocco.

First, I'd like to say that it's stupid to fly from Cairo to Istanbul and then to Casablanca. But this is the only flight I found.

OK, The fucken guy in Cairo airport announced that it's the last call for the flight, The flight was supposed to depart at 0345 but the announcement was at 0240 so we (Me and Diaa) had to leave the smoking area and discover the trick afterwards,

OK, I slept like a (whatever) during the flight. The food was not bad, Wish they gave me a bag of bread. It's completely strange that they give you a metal fork, spoon and knife.

Is the aircraft crashing ?? No, We are landing. God damn this landing!

To Morocco...

Acer Embedded Controller no spinlock patch updated to

Submitted by msameer on Mon, 12/06/2006 - 1:25pm

OK, Without this patch, My laptop suffers from jumpy touchpad and sticky keys. It's mainly because the Linux ACPI implementation is trying to access the battery state through the laptop embedded controller. The problem is that this access causes lost interrupts which leads to the above problems.

The patch was only for 2.6.14 and was not updated to 2.6.16. It doesn't apply. I was stuck until I decided to port it. It's working fine since a couple of minutes ;-)

Here it is anyway. But be aware. I feel the touchpad is not in the usual state I used to. I'm not sure how.
