Get it while it lasts! Opera Software is celebrating their 10 year anniversary by giving away free registration codes for Opera on all platforms. Opera is a lean, fast web browser that supports multiple operating systems, including Linux.
My family came up to Atlanta and joined me this weekend in helping my sister move in and get situated into Emory University, where she’ll be working on her undergraduate degree for the next four or so years. Emory has some a very attractive campus with some nice scenery.
Joined Alan, Graham, Luke, and Vinny for our first Atlanta Hack meeting at Octane Coffee. A lot of good ideas were bounced around, which is generally what happens when you get a lot of smart people together. Graham has also posted pictures of the Atlanta Hack event, and project ideas are posted under AtlHack User’s Projects.

I’m not going to speculate on what this means, but I just find it highly amusing that Ben, who is working on MSN Messenger Server at Microsoft, brought this topic up just last week with me:
Ben: I like MSN. Interview for Messenger Server. Titus: Just put jabber on it and call it a day. Ben: Jabber servers don't scale.
Ben, we’ll see about that.
Oops, we did it again. As you know, every month the Atlanta Bloggers get together to see some sunlight, socialize, and just have a generally good time with people from all over Atlanta. This month, we met once again at the Highlander to continue the tradition, which includes the now infamous napkin. I think that next month, we should work on improving our handwriting skills.
It’s a lot of fun, so if you want to be a part of it, e-mail Lori, the fabulous organizer, and let her know.
It took some finageling with Vonage support, but they eventually sent me the details on manually upgrading the firmware on this locked router.
The latest, unadvertised Vonage firmware for RTP300 (Version 37) can first be downloaded off their website. Once you’re logged in, visit:
Next, you’ll be asked for login credentials. They are:
Username: user Password: tivonpw
Now you can manually update the firmware, or modify any of the other locked features.
We’re not so different, you and I. Slingerdoo and Lori organized a fantastic event right here in Roswell at WhirlyBall, the second most fun thing in the world, to placate some of the brewing ill blood between bloggers and flickrs. Slingerdoo has some photos of the event, with even more pictures by everyone here.
In RedHat Enterprise Linux 3 (RHEL3), RedHat provided its users with a
kernel-unsupported RPM on CD for drivers available with the Linux kernel that were not directly supported by RedHat. In RHEL4, this package no longer exists. Luckily, CentOS provides an unsupported kernel under CentOS Plus in their FTP distribution directory, which includes most additional kernel modules.
It was a great weekend, and a great opportunity to meet the Class of 2000 Alabama School of Math and Science alumni. This time, I made a special effort to try and talk to those who I never really talked to in high school. Despite being in a selective, residential environment, high school still had its cliquish moments. But a lot has changed in five years. People have lightened up and matured. Relationships have come and gone. And the cliques have become irrelevant. Indeed, I really was surprised at how easy it was for me to get along and talk with everyone. And I know now that it’s the people, and not the place, that made ASMS the wonderful experience that it was.
