This is definitely what I need. A storage solution that’s built right into a router, a wireless one at that, and allows me to access content from where ever in the house. Compatible with Windows, Linux and Mac, future OS choices won’t be too much of a headache now. Imagine this. Work downstairs in front of the telly, experimenting with Linux on a nother box and still accessing the net through it, then transmitting new mp3’s into the Mac Mini which is installed in the car boot.
I know. Crazy. Sexy, but crazy.
Net-Box™ removes the complexities and cost barriers associated with home networking.

With the download that was just finished a couple of days ago (which took oh so many days I can’t even remember when it started) I was eager to install it on this laptop. I knew it works on this baby coz I tried the 9.2 LiveCD and the one CD installable Personal CD, so you can see how excited I was with this. Installation was easy enough, but the Wi Fi was being a bitch. Fandi put his thinking cap on and figured out how to use Wi Fi with this thing, and et voila, we were both surfing on my wireless router yesterday, and I still am.
My review now that the Wireless is working? SuSE 9.2 Professional r0XX0rs my b0xx0rs!!! OMGPLUS4USUSE!!!!11!!1oneone
ObjectBar with Panther 10.3 skin, wallpaper from some guy that had em up (had to resize it up to 1400×1050 from 1024×768), iTunes skinned with Multi Plugin to have the buttons where it’s supposed to be, and Font modification to how it looks like on the Mac.
Hey, maybe the Mini Mac would be good for my plans to put a computer in the car (my prerequisite for a car stereo system? Smart Playlists a la iTunes) but I’d just wait until it’s cheaper or some hacker designed a way to get some kind of control interface hard wired into the face plate of the Mini Mac. Not too keen on the iPod shuffle though. Cheap, yes, but there are cheaper ones here in the Asian market made by companies that aren’t loyal to the White Design Demon and have way more features than that thing.
But hey, I can see people eating up the thing and proclaim themselves as an iPod user now.
I’m talking about the phone on the previous post.
Edit : The price is BND$1360 which is around USD830.
Yeah, it was a bummer of an end of year. I totally respect the decision to halt all celebrations and I can live with that. So I ended up taking up on my ex boss’ offer to come over to his house and celebrate with the rest of my ex co workers. Had food, barbecueing some stuff, and ended up playing poker til 12, which I’ve won a mere $3, but with stakes as low as 5 cents, how can you win big eh?
Started to go home at around 2, driving around JP to see if anything’s up there, and then was looking around for traffic cops along the road from Empire hotel. But yeah, nothing. Didn’t even stop by at Empire for a friend’s invitation to sleep over there.
Yeap. Here’s To A New Year 2005.
