Nokia N900 Maemo 5 PR1.2 update -- conclusion

First of all it worked ok!

I did not have enough free space on '/' (root) to complete it at once so it aborted twice for me ..
If it does that: don't panic .. in the terminal (as root) run dpkg --configure -a (which will finish setup of all the already installed packages -- which will clear up more space again. (running 'sync' is always good as it can give u even more space :D

after that just re-start apt-get dist-upgrade ;) -- rinse and repeat until done :d

Nokia N900 Maemo 5 PR1.2 upgrade

just wanted to upgrade only to notice it wants to download like 111MB and of course there ain'T enough space on /var/cache/apt/archives .. (it says that when you run apt-get dist-upgrade as root from the command line)

Warning: no guarantee this works / does not break anything / delete your data,..

!!!I found that putting archives on the sd card is a bad idea since it seems to unmount that in the process -- recovery was possible for me but i don'T suggest it as it can be a bit tricky

ebay.de and free listing days ... (and their contact form which cannot easily be found in their Contact section)

i really wish ebay.de would get the idea about sending out emails about free listing days ..

Snow, Snow and more snow ...

It keeps snowing here .. then stopping, melting away and then it snows again...
Had like 10 cm or more over night and some more this morning .. ;)

Broad Green archers webpage and robots meta tag ;)

I just noticed recently that for some strange reason a page I had made for Broad Green Archers was not listed on google. So I started investigating and wasn't particularily surprised about it anymore when I noticed that the pages had a robots META tag with NOINDEX,NOFOLLOW .. ;)

New howtos section, twisted blogs

As is visible from the previos blog posts I started to write small howtos regarding python / twisted / nevow.
At first I wanted to put them as a Page but drupal won't let ppl add comments on Pages so I just put a Page with links to blog entries (ones just before this one ;))
There is a new Howto link at the top of the page btw. Look out for more howtos / content ;)

Nevow HTML Table rendering with xhtml template and stan

Very short example of a Page with xml template and a table which is used to render some data (with stan).
Thanks to Brend for sharing this with me (he also said that there is probably some way to do it without stan, but I quite like this as it is easy to use):
