Last night I saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, there was a phrase I found very interesting and very truth:
You’ll see little man, plenty of times you be alone. You different like us, it’s gonna be that way. But I tell you a little secret I find out. We know we alone. Fat people, skinny people, tall people, white people… they just as alone as us… but they scared shitless.
As a Linux fan, every time a new version of my current favorite distro -ubuntu- comes out (every six months) I download the ISO image burn it into a CD an perform a clean install. So I got a bunch of CDs, that I don’t really need after installation.
But not any more. This is what’s needed to do it from a USB flash drive and stop the CDs to pollute:
- Download you ISO.
- Install UNetbootin:
sudo apt-get install unetbooting
- Start it from Applications>System Tools>UNetbootin
- Select your ISO file, and click on Accept.
- One the USB is ready, boot from it and install Linux as yoiu would do it from the CD.
1-UNetbootin Runs also from Windows
2-UNetbootin can download the ISO for you, but of course if it’s too know it migh not appear in the list…
Since Citrix XenServer is Linux, you just have to access by standard linux method: ssh
simpy initiate a ssh session with root account:
and you are inside.
You will see a welcome text with the instructions:
Type “xsconsole” for access to the management console.
And once you type xsconsole you will get this:
By design SAP Business One needs a promiscuous folder to be shared to all the users (this is where the pdf and xls exports will land, and is the place for add-ons installers and much more…), since there are some files that I don’t want some user to delete by accident, I’m trying to give permissions in order to avoid such deletions.
But either I can’t read, or Windows Server permissions are just a joke:
Even If I choose “deny full control” any user can delete that file, and wired thins is, ok the user can not see the file, but can delete it! come one!
There are not technical reasons, only Apple marketing policies, but the iPhone is not allowed to run multiple applications simultaneously , by design only the phone, mail, ipod, and maybe some other Apple application can run in the backgroud.
This is of course not the desired behavior for many cases…
Multitasking you can, for example:
- Have a messaging service available at any time.
- Have an IP phone (e.g. skype, gizmo5) available all time.
- Pause a game, go to write an email, read the news, and go back to the game…etc.
So this is what’s needed to enable Multitasking in your iPhone:
- In order to enable it, the iPhone must be jailbroken, if it’s not, there’s a jailbreak how to here.
- From Cydia (or Icy), search and install the backgrounder app. This will provide the availability to run applications in the background.
- From Cydia (or Icy), search and install the application kirikae. This will provide a task manager that will let you switch between open applications and close them. You can also add favorite apps to open faster.
- Have Fun
Last night I saw Star Trek during a flight, it reveals the story behind the original series, with a story based on time travel, and I have to admit that it transported me back to the past, recalling when I was a kid.
I enjoyed it. And I specially enjoyed my own memories.
You can try this search to watch for free.
If you are mexican, for sure you know Prodigy Internet, and the odds are you might already have a username and password.
Well Telmex offers free prodigy internet roaming via tmoblie in USA and some other countries, so when in an airport, or hot-spot, look for that.
PS…yes this post should better be in Spanish.
There is a new version of the Virtual Memory application for the iPhone:
- This new iPhone VM 2 has a dynamic swap file.
If you try to install it it will uninstall the other version.
I want to try a machine I got as a vmware image, so I went to install the Free (as in beer) VMware player, this ois what it takes:
Usually, you want to use your phone as a modem to provide internet access to your laptop, but there are somecases were you want the opposite, e.g. I’m in a foreing country, with no wifi internet, just wired access, how do I get my iPhone into the internet via WiFi and avoiding the muche expensive data roamig bucks? This is what I did:
I’m Using Ubuntu Linux and an iPhone.
-Connect the laptop to the wired internet.
-Click on the NetworkManager Applet
-Select “Create New Wireless Network…”
-Give a Name (e.g. MyOwnWiFi)
-If you want give a security option (e.g. WEP) and provide a password.
-Connect the iPhone to the new Wirless Network (no changes required, this shuld work in standard DHCP mode)
Ready to go.
