Filthy Rich OS

Icon Leave Comment
Finally got around to rolling my own Linux distribution. Is there anything particularly noteworthy about it? It's Arch Linux based. Basically, it does not deviate from the base Arch Linux except to provide an Xserver and a couple of small utilities. The most important package is OpenJDK8 and the Eclipse IDE. The general premise is to use it...

Linux Launcher/Root Menu in Java

Icon Leave Comment
The compulsory screenshot:

That's what my current Linux setup looks like. It's an Arch Linux running DWM as the window manager. I switched from JWM to SithWM and finally settled at DWM.

Why DWM? Lightweight, so uses very few resources. It's floating mode is tantamount to JWM/SithWM. Workspace switching is much...

Raspberry Pi's Internal Clock

Icon Leave Comment
The RasPi has no internal clock. Whenever it boots its internal clock is set to the Unix epoch. While this may not be a problem, I find it somewhat disconcerting. It did however cause an error in one particular application that I was trying to run that made use of system time.

The model B is the RasPi that has the ethernet port, and with the...

Sound on an Arch Linux ARM Raspberry Pi

Icon Leave Comment
Getting sound to work on your Raspberry Pi isn't too difficult. Just seems like a lot of the information out there is somewhat scattered, and on Arch it also takes a little bit of system configuration. The first thing is that you need to load the sound module at boot. This is easily done with the following commands (all commands assume...

Sithberries anyone?

Icon 1 Comments
Did a quick search on the forum and much to my surprise there weren't any results for "raspberry pi." I just recently received mine (3 month wait) and figured I would document what I'd done to get it up and running. Less so to help others, moreso I might break the image and would like to easily recall the steps at a future...

Linux Java Interface

Icon 2 Comments
*sigh* again a slave to my ideas which I surely won't complete, but intermittently advance. If you've read prior posts then you know about my Java OS idea. Well, sadly I gave it a name, which meant I had to do something more with it. I call it Mocha (play on words delight everyone).

Time for the YouTubes...

File Sharing Linux/Windows or JDownZ is Awesome

Icon Leave Comment
This is essentially a continuation of my experiences with the newly installed TinyCoreLinux system from the previous entry (which is now at 3.7.1 and markedly better).

So what have I done since last time? Well I purchased 1 Gig of RAM to upgrade the laptop, even though it wasn't absolutely necessary. However, the difference is...

A Java OS sorta?

Icon 2 Comments
Curiosity strikes me at odd times. Typically I'm always working on some project which seems utterly preposterous to the people around me, be it code or otherwise. Presently, I'm working on a simplified vacuum forming machine, but that's not the subject at hand.

For whatever reason my interest in Java has been rekindled. I started...

3.0 Released

It's available for download now. Hurray, now I can look forward to a whole new slew of problems, woe to the day I ever came up with this idea. :no: I'm still baffled that the number of downloads is in the thousands.

Geolocation and Hits

Icon Leave Comment
As of yet I've not uploaded v3.0 to the web. Still translating all the previous PHP code within the site to work with the newest version. However, I did upload a preview of what the new Mimesis class looks like. You can find two new Mimesis powered scripts under the Tutorials page of my Mimesis site: geolocation and hits counter.

Mimesis 3.0

Icon Leave Comment
Haven't updated in a while regarding Mimesis, particularly since the 110mb site was down and I had also been busy with some other stuff. The previous version had the disastrous bug of improper file offsets and all that, not to mention still addressing things in a sort of database format.

As I got to coding v3.0 I started moving away more and...
