Testing the “Image” post format.
I am testing the “Status” post format. Let’s see what it looks like.
Let’s see how well it works.
Sharing a photo that I uploaded using the app, and now including it in this post. I am using the Standard post format.
Update: It seems to work fine and do what I need.
I finally bought some Raspberry Pi stuff. I picked up the package yesterday after my night shift at and mounted one of them in the case I got for it and connected it to my ancient tv, with DVI as the most modern input choice.
The first thing I tried was raspbmc. It boots, and works, but I’m not very impressed with XBMC, and not with the analog audio, which doesn’t work at all in it, except for a few seconds when listening to a radio stream, but most of the time it was only giving some clicks in the speakers when switching streams. It’s not for me anyway. Moving on.
Then I fell asleep, and now it is Saturday.
So, off with that. Next thing to try will be the Raspberry Pi foundation Raspbian image. (After that I will probably end up using the Raspbian installer and make my own stripped down base image, or check if there exists some sane image from here, we’ll see.).

TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard är en dokumentär om The Pirate Bay och dess grundare som hade premiär igår på Berlins filmfestival och online. Filmen har tagit fyra år att färdigställa och följer de tre grundarna av The Pirate Bay under rättegångarna.

Today is Earth Hour 2012.
Most lights in the office are shut off. I’m working the night, I usually do that whenever I work alone, but doing it with a thought today.
Changing the theme to require less energy to display (in theory, on CRT:s anyway 🙂 ).
Before you do anything else with the MikroTik RouterBOARD RB751G-2HnD, or any other device running RouterOS with a default configuration I guess, you should configure the device with some bare minumum security features.
Set a password
The first thing to do is changing the password for the default user “admin”. When you are logged in, you can do this two ways (at least), either by setting it directly:
[admin@MikroTik] > user set admin password=somegoodpassword
Or by using the “password” utility to set the password interactively:
[admin@MikroTik] > password old password: ******** new password: ******** retype new password: ********
I bought a MikroTik RouterBOARD RB751G-2HnD a little while back. Tonight is the first time I power it up and connect to it, examining what it can do, and how to do it. From the outside it’s a nice looking little box, with a seemingly sturdy enough plastic casing with the size of 113x138x29mm. There are holes for passive cooling, some status LEDs, 5 RJ45 ports, and a USB 2.0 port. On the other side there is an antenna connector for an external MMCX antenna.
The labeling on my case is “RouterBOARD 751G”.
