What’s a Raspberry Pi?

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming.

**from the xbmc wiki: XBMC can be compiled now to run on Raspberry Pi, but no stable binary is has been released yet from Team XBMC

Waffles.fm Invites!!

Friday, March 30th, 2012

A While ago, I asked if anyone had heard about a fantastic recipe site called waffles.fm. I heard of it from a good friend, who is always on the hunt for the ‘source’ of music. Where does it get upped to first?!? Well, I eventually got into waffles, thanks to a friently redditor, who ironically got banned for inviting me :/ But I invited him back. I also got into another amazing and secretive site called what.cd. Both are private torrent trackers boasting the largest collection of music…. ahem recipes rather, I’ve ever seen. What.cd definitely has more content, which makes the ratios (and getting invites) a much more daunting task!!

Well, having a super ratio on Waffles.fm has allowed to me to invite my friends & a few lucky clients to join. Now I’m building up invites quicker than I can hand them out. SO do your research, and next time you see me, ask me to toss an invite your way, and if you can talk the talk, you just may get lucky 🙂

 

XBMC auto updater from SABnzbd :)

Monday, February 6th, 2012

Well, The release of the Beta2 of eden has started a whole mess of work as far as customizing and building libraries… Newer awesome skins (trying refocus out right now.. amazing!). Library stored on a central mySQL server, instead of locally on every device!! (Build one library, and any xbmc install on the network can share the library).

For now, Ill share a simple little addition to your SABnzbd server, that automatically updates your xbmc library when a download is completed or Start 3 downloads, tag the last one to update xbmc 🙂

(tested with eden beta2, and linux)

step 1: under sab config —> folders create a scripts folder (if you haven’t already)

step 2: in said scripts folder, add this text, modify it to match your web server settings. I don’t use login or pw, no idea if they work but I’m sure you could add (xbmc:xbmc@http://localhost:8080/jsonrpc) if you have one. Save it and make it executable (chmod +x) or (chmod 777).

#!/bin/bash

wget -q -O/dev/null –header=’Content-Type: application/json’ –post-data='{“jsonrpc”: “2.0”, “method”: “VideoLibrary.Scan”}’ http://localhost:8080/jsonrpc

step 3: download something and pick the script, mine works 😉 .. sab will give you a good error log if doesn’t…

**make sure your categories work!!

enjoy!

Arch-linux. media/file server rebuild/overclock/tweak :)

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

If you follow along, I’ve been messing around with my server and xbmc setup.. Did a good cleaning, processor upgrade to the qx6850, then went back to my q6600 as it could clock equally as high, at about 20 degrees cooler! That is with a new NOCTUA heatsink and fan combo, them germans always seem to get it right… with mechanical things :/ 3.6 Ghz (9×400 mhz). VCORE- 1.3875V, All this on an Asus P5k-V motherboard, with 4GB of ram running at 2.1V, 800 mhz, 5-5-5-15. Did a little colouring with a pencil to help a vdrop and vdroop problem I was facing, It surprisingly did WONDERS! But still not perfect. This is where quality makes the difference! Bios set at 1.3875, lm-sensors measures it as 1.34. ah well.

Completely reinstalled my OS (arch-linux) That’s been an ongoing process.. takes (me) a while to re-setup a server the way you were used to (or better ! ) and through it all into a fancy lian-li case 🙂 (sooo coool!)

All this for a VERY maginal improvement, but stable, cool, and CLEANER than ever! should be a solid more 3 years out of her.

Thats under normal load running 2 X sessions (both running gnome3 and gnome-shell, compiz) one running xbmc too. It’s also rather warm in the room right now (24 degrees) things are usually a little cooler running.

no swap space on this install! Trying it out, I dont really have anywhere for swap anyways, and I figure I dont do too much memory intensive. and 4GB should be plenty, if not, im screwed as DDR2 is a freaking fortune??
