multiple updates on various junk

I’ve been busy. It’s been good and I see progress being made. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. So, this post is going to be a mini-update to a bunch of stuff I got in the hopper.

Tmobile Wing

Man, I love this thing. Today I put new skins on it, and installed some really great apps. I’ll provide a more detailed post on it. Going from PalmOS to WM6 was painless and easy. I almost don’t even think of it. I miss on flash card program but other than that, I don’t think I’ll ever go back to a Palm-based phone.

XMBC on the Xbox

My brother-in-law is really happy with his hacked Xbox. We watched all sorts of international TV this weekend. I found this after poking around. Why hadn’t I found it before?

I found some great games I am playing on my Xbox. ChessMaster was really hard to find:


I am getting a lot of hits on my website for Trixbox related things. I hope you guys are finding it helpful. I’d love to hear some feedback.


I have been thinking of trying out Zenoss at home, (remember, I have a three servers in my basement). It looks pretty slick. I’ve used Cacti before which isn’t so much a monitoring system as a health check / graphing system.


I’ve been playing with some new plugins. There are so many cool ones out that I love trying them out. It gives me a chance to brush up on my PHP and MySQL skills, (which admittedly aren’t much, but it feels good when you figure it out!).
