Bluetooth working.

Submitted by msameer on Fri, 07/01/2005 - 2:31pm

I was able to transfer files only from my laptop to my Nokia phone from the command line.
However I wasn't able to transfer files from my Nokia to the laptop.
Now since kde 3.3 is now in sarge, I can install KDE bluetooth, I'm not a KDE user. But I thught that it'll allow me to browse the phone as if it was a folder and see the contents, However I was wrong.
After installing the 100MB unpacked debs, What I was able to do was the same I can do with the command line!
I was talking with youssef yesterday, I was wondering what shall I do to transfer files from my phone to the laptop, He said send them via bluetooth, And what the wonder it worked with kdebluetooth.
Now what I need is a way to do this from the command line and I'll be very pleased.
I've downloaded the whole gallery and I'll be posting photos soon ;-)

* Arabic in Gentoo Forums, I don't think this'll be ever used for a period more than 1 week or 1 month and then it'll be dead.
* I've left the office yesterday at 1 am. We are building a live CD to customize an existing solution, However OpenOffice is a gay as usual and is refusing to install. I'll have to go now and fight for it, It's almost done!
* I've got kbluetooth working with my Nokia 6600, But I was able to upload files only, heh. I was able to do that from the command line without having to install more than 100 MB of binary data!

Happy New Year, The foolab way.

Submitted by msameer on Fri, 31/12/2004 - 8:03pm

Happy new year all.
Alaa woke me up today saying that foolab is down. It was obvious that the codefilter.module "Which the drupal module used to highlight the php code." is not playing nice with drupal,I don't know why.
But Seeing an error about undefined functions is not a sign of good.
I don't know what happened, The site has been working for long time,
I tried to logout to find the error. It seems that it's happening to non logged in users, I searched drupal.org to find that this is a reported bug!
I don't know how many of you were affected by this error.
Anyway, I've disabled the following code in the module and everything is fine now.
<?
function codefilter_init() {
drupal_set_html_head('@import url('. $GLOBALS[base_url] .'/modules/codefilte\r/codefilter.css);');
?>
I moved the code to the theme file.
<?
// Codefilter block.
if (function_exists("codefilter_help"))
{
$output .= '@import url('. $GLOBALS[base_url] .'/modules/codefilte\r/codefilte\r.css);';
}
?>

Another thing just to fuck my mind, the codefilter module prevents drupal from generating the node teaser, I wonder why ?

[*]Try to pay my aDSL line bill on time.
[*]Try to take care of my long hair "this won't happen".
[*]I want to marry, Is there a chanse for me to find a girl the next year "I don't like to love what I find, I want to find find what I love!!!" ?
[*]Try to be more involved in Debian, Maybe take the 1st step towards being a Debian Devaloper.
[*]Get arabbix 1.0 out.

On eglug, what people do to other people.

Submitted by msameer on Tue, 28/12/2004 - 7:41pm

A misscommunication problem lead to eglug.org being updated to point to our new VPS without us being ready. OK, So we have to migrate it then. I was at the office, Alaa did most of the work.
At the end eglug was transferred with its 4 sub domains, The mailboxes were migrated, Alaa was screaming because mailman web interface didn't work because I disabled apache mod_cgi. Sometimes I restart apache and/or MySQL after tweaking them while he is doing an important thing using the drupal administration interface.
A custom module didn't work so we ad to upgrade php and do a lot of pinning.
Now after the end of a long day I'm really tired, sleepy, having a headache, My right eye hurts like hell.
But everything is up and running.
Now that eglug has its own space "though it's on our server" we can start our election process, Who'll stay and who'll go. We'll be needing new admins. Moderators, ...
Huh, Now since we'll have new admins for the LUG, I guess it's time to get some rest ?


Moved again

Submitted by msameer on Sat, 25/12/2004 - 2:59am

foolab.org moved again to our new VPS at rimuhosting.com.
I suppose no more MySQL errors, If it happens, Then I'm a bad admin ;-)
The best thing is that I have my own relay now, So no more blck listed IP/subnet, no reverse DNS, no no MX record problems from SMTPs, Even better, I usr SMTP over SSL to relay!
Let's see how it'll go with this Debian powered server.
