Title: Vacation!
Post by: Xepher on May 06, 2009, 10:36:36 pm
I'm going on vacation next week, starting Saturday the 9th and coming back the following Saturday. I likely won't have net access for most/all of that time, as I'll be on a cruise in the Carribean. This shouldn't affect anything, as the new server seems rock solid, though applications are going to be delayed further, since I won't have time to get to any of them before I leave. If you have any last minute requests for support or things you need done, get them in within the next day or so. Otherwise, I'll see you all when I get back.

As in cases like this before, I'm going to entrust my friend Will (willsan) with root access and to keep an eye on things. Hopefully shouldn't be needed though.

Obviously we'd all die.

Enjoy your vacation, Xeph. I want to kill you and take your place on the cruise so badly right now.

Posting this from the Miami airport... I had to hack my phone a bit to get wifi through to the laptop without paying the $5/30min. they want here. What a gyp. :-) Just got back on dry land, had a great time on the cruise, and did a couple of awesome dives. Saw stingrays, lion fish, giant lobsters, all sorts of cool things. Anyway, should be back home this evening and around/online regularly again after that. Hope nothing went wrong while I was gone.

Well, I'd already rooted the phone with custom firmware, so I just had to install a nifty app to let you do wifi tethering... basically takes the phone's data connection and turns the phone into a wifi access point. Really cool, and maybe-not-quite-so-allowed on the actual phone terms of service, but... well, it worked. :-)

http://code.google.com/p/android-wifi-tether/ is the app if you're curious. As it notes though, it may violate your contract, and you do have to have a root-enabled firmware... either a developer platform, or a custom compiled one if you have a retail handset.

LION FISH. I want to see.

I swam with parrot fish on my one and only cruise. It was fun. Of course by "swam" I mean "floated with floaties" because I cannot actually swim.

Glad you had fun. :D
