I’ve been trying to jailbreak my iPhone (iOS 4.2.1) for few days. I thought it would be cool if I install Android on my phone, after jailbreaking it. I used redsn0w several times to jailbreak, however I couldn’t manage to jailbreak even if it says “it’s done”. I didn’t want to downgrade the firmware. If […]
I have iPhone 3G which is running on iOS 4.2.1. Since it has a slow processor and low memory, some apps crash all the time. Official Twitter app, “Twitter for iPhone” drove me crazy last weekend. So I decided to switch to a new app. I tested some of popular apps in App Store with […]
Today, I made a Pardus 2011 installation to my notebook PC. I used an USB flash drive as my installation media. If truth be told, I was -really- fast. I agreed the license terms, hit start button on the stopwatch timer and clicked next. I also check the integrity of my installation media by clicking […]
Recently, I bought a new laptop. Not suprisingly, a Microsoft Windows operating-system had been preinstalled. I wanted it to be removed. This post tells the first day of the story… in Turkish. Geçtiğimiz perşembe günü (13.01.2011) Profilo AVM’deki (Mecidiyeköy / İstanbul) Teknosa Extra mağazasından Casper marka bir bilgisayar satın aldım. Şaşırtıcı olmayan bir şekilde, Microsoft […]
Today, I encountered a problem: storing MAC address in a MySQL database. MAC addresses (something like “01:23:45:67:78:AB”) contain six hexadecimal (base 16) values. This means each hexadecimal field can store 256 (2 to the power of 8, in base 10) values. It’s 8 bits (= 1 byte) for each value. 6 field x 8 bit […]
Since the official WikiLeaks page has changed, the previous script needs to be updated. Here it is: Please remember to install piksemel module.
Today, I wrote a small script to get the count of released WikiLeaks cables. Actually, it’s extremely small. Just two lines of code. Generally, I don’t code like this. But I wanted to write it quick (5 minutes?) and keep it short. It uses piksemel to parse the page. Enjoy!
This week had been an exhausting one. I was an exhibitor at Pardus at CeBIT 2010 Eurasia. I’ve talked about Pardus, Linux and open software for 4 days, all day long. Being there as a volunteer and working hard didn’t matter. WE HAD FUN! While we’re giving visitors gifts (Pardus 2009.2 CD’s, posters, brochures and […]
Note: This snippet uses piksemel module to parse XML files. If you don’t have it, read this article to install it. First of all, you need the WOEID (Where on Earth Identification) of the city. In order to learn it, go to http://weather.yahoo.com and search for the city. You’ll find the WOEID at the end […]
piksemel is a easy to use python XML parser, based on iksemel. Not: If you’re using Pardus, piksemel is preinstalled on your system. Not: If you’re using Windows, before you continue make sure you’ve already installed mingw32 to your system and its directory is included in PATH. Steps for Linux users: Download the package from […]
