Optus Tethering on iPhone OS 3.1.2

Justyn | December 25, 2009

There is now a simple way to enable tethering on the iPhone 3G/3Gs using Optus without paying extra. Now if you do happen to get charged I take no responsibility.

Your iPhone must be JailBroken. Add http://apt.iphone-storage.de as a source in Cydia, then search for Tethering and install the one corresponding to your iPhone (Tethering 3G – 3.1.2 or Tethering 3GS – 3.1.2).

Once installed, reboot then open Safari and navigate to http://justynsmith.info/mobileconfig/au_optus.mobileconfig and install the mobileconfig file. Once installed you should be able to go to Settings > General > Networking > Tethering (on/off).

SLiM – Simple Login Manager

Justyn | November 30, 2009

I recently swapped from GDM to SLiM on my EeePC running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 and decided to make a nice simple theme for it which you can download.

SLiM - crackware theme

SLiM - crackware theme

SLiM is exactly that, a Simple Login Manager and it lives up to it’s name. Even being as simple as it is, you can still theme it and it has a configuration file which you can edit.

Three day weekend

Justyn | November 26, 2009

So I had Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday off this week. What better way to spend it than to go camping. Chell and I packed up the car with the tent, sleeping bags, food e.t.c. and off we went. We ended up going to The Boulders at Babinda.

We arrived around 8:30pm and setup the tent, bed and had a cup of coffee. It was so hot sleeping, and I didn’t really fit too well in the tent, I had to lay sort of diagonally to fit properly. The next morning we got up at around 7am and had lovely cold showers, since there was no hot water at the camping grounds!

I posted a job on rent-a-coder for someone to make an Appulous knockoff for my site. Kyek accepted the job under another name and pwned me :(. But we’re cool now. Who am I?

Increased hits from Appulous Troll Bridge

Justyn | November 19, 2009

As you probably were aware over the past four five days, kyek over at Hackulous had setup a Troll Bridge to slow people down from accessing Appulous during the server move.

I would like to extend my apologies to kyek (if you end up reading this) or if you let kyek know that I wasn’t trying to profit from this (as you may notice, there are no ads on my blog). I was simply seeing how demanding people were to get access to Appulous, which yielded over 12,000 hits in four days simply by posting the answers on my blog and Google crawling my site.

I would like to thank kyek for all the hard work that has gone into Appulous and hope it is just as a successful try before you buy site as it was prior to The Troll Bridge, keep up the good work!
