Ah, remember my previous post on the iLock for Java enabled phones like my Sony Ericsson P1i. It was Java based, so it’s like executing an application to key lock your phone, it’s slow and ineffective.

Now here comes the newest beta of the iPhone iLock by Kwull. It’s a UIQ3 app and it’s fast, upon unlocking, it stays in the background with minimal memory resources.

I was looking for a way to force my VM to boot up with a specific date and time without going into the VM BIOS to change it every time I boot up.

I just need a VM for testing and evaluating certain software or platforms but I don’t like re-building it when the licenses expires.

Especially when trial software always expires in like 15 or 30 days ? 7 for a particular secure os and 15 for a particular secure platform. 🙂

Well, if you have some DVDs that you will like to backup, here are the steps to do it.

Note: For non-encrypted DVDs, meaning like personal home videos, non-commerical created DVDs, etc.. 🙂

Step 1:

dvdbackup -M -i /dev/dvd -o ./outputdir/

-M tells it to make a full backup, there are other parameters to backup selective chapters.

dvdbackup will create the DVD folder structure under ./outputdir/<volume-name>

Step 2:

mkisofs -dvd-video -o dvd.iso ./outputdir/<volume-name>

I was trying out JanusVM in my VMware server. It’s a linux based OS with this few key components, openVPN, Squid, privoxy and Tor, packaged neatly into a VMware “appliance”.

Basically it provides a layer of security and privacy for most TCP based applications, like IM, web browsing, etc, even DNS requests are passed through Tor. Most importantly, it provides you with access to sites that are filtered off by your ISP transparent proxies.

GDesk has a new version release 0.14.

v0.14 – 30th September 2007
Warning – this version has a major change and needs plenty of testing. If you don’t want to risk potentially large bugs and problems it might be best to wait a few days to see what comes up!
Either way it’s a good idea to keep v0.13 installs handy and back up your design before installing v0.14!
Note – this version introduces a slight change to the plug-in interface code so you’ll need to install new versions of plug-ins!

As the warning above, “Proceed with caution !!”

Ah, Prolinkhosting decided to give me a grace period of 24hours to backup my files.

So I managed to extract most of the data from my previous host and restore most of my blog entries.
