Weekend sum up

This weekend started with a great friday evening in the cinema Biocity in Taastrup, with a friend of mine watching The Incredebles. This movie is one of the coolest 3D animation movies I have ever seen. Edna mode…. and guest.

After the movie we just talked about stuff and listened to music and I bought Coldplay from CD-WOW. A

Saturday I spend with another friend. We where supposed to play the new Sid Meier’s Pirates which release date I thought was yesterday. Instead we got sentimental and looked back to the glory days where games like Syndicate, Pirates and The Secret of Monkey Island where the hot stuff. We ended up playing through the first half of Escape from Monkey Island. It wasn’t that hard because I have solved the puzzles before, though never completed the game… until today that is ;)

Now I only need to complete Grim Fandango to have completed all Lucas Arts adventure games back to The Loom.

Debian Sarge on IBM X40 howto - Part 10: Suspend

I have just installed a 2.6.9 kernel and now my laptop wakes after suspend with acpi. But as soon it has awoken it stats to shutdown :(

I have to find out why this happens… but it is getting there YE YE :-D

Update: Suspend actually works now. Just me who thinks you have to wake the computer up with the power button. (I had disabled lid-suspend because it didn’t work with earlier kernels).

Debianart finally updated

After yesterdays small data loss I have been working hard tonight to prepare the site for the update that I have been working on for so long now. All the pieces seem to have fallen together now and the new site seems to be running just fine.

The transission to Smarty and an enchanced data structure was hard work by I hope that it eventually will pay off. I have made a small update to the 3 old wallpapers. I have removed my email from them which was tagged on the lower left corner.

Next step(s) for the Debianart website:

  • Different sorting of submissions (oldest, top downloads etc.)
  • Graphics and news submissions directly from users
  • Give me your ideas!!!

Now I’m tired :)

Backup with rdiff-backup

Why do I have to learn the hard way?!?

When you want to write rm *~ dont stop half way there (rm *). Luckily It was only a few templates for the developer version of Debianart that got wiped, but it has delayed kick off yet again. Perhapes next weekend?

But the event made me look at a way to backup my important files. A colleague recommended rdiff-backup for backup and I have look at it and found it worthy :) I have used some examples I found on the net to get a picture on how it works. The good news is that rdiff-backup exists as a Debian package.

Laptop sleep/resume

I have trouble making my laptop resume after I finally got it to sleep. I have reported a bug on the problem. It seems that it is making progress… though I will test some more to se if I have made mistakes :( It seems I’m good at that.
