OpenMoko Emulator

Hey gang, for those interested, I found on the openmoko website this awesome little file you can download, extract and quickly use to get the OpenMoko firmware to boot up in QEMU. So those who are interested in checking this phone out can get a slight sample of it this way. What I like about it is that I can begin developing for the project without having to own one!

The Emulator package is here

Have fun!!

Ubuntu Samba Apache Active Directory Authentication

So I’ve spent some time for something at work figuring out how to get an Ubuntu server to authenticate users with a Windows 2003 Server Active Directory. Using the process I’ve found by combining various sources, my instructions show how to get a machine setup such that users logging in to the shell, accessing a samba share and checking out a website (or sub-directory of one) can all be authenticated using credentials centrally stored in a separate Active Directory server.

Check out my articles I’ve posted here:

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog!

How I love Joss Whedon! His revolution has launched as of today! Below is the teaser for his made for internet series “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”. The first episode was released today at DrHorrible.com.

The Dr. Horrible website currently is having a really hard time keeping up for the traffic demands (which is a great thing – mostly). An alternative option is to buy it straight up on iTunes! It’ll be the first thing I do when I get home from work tonight!
