dropbox_logo

Dropbox is my favorite online storage solution. Here’s how to install it on Ubuntu 8.10 Interpid

1. Add the Dropbox repository for Ubuntu package source file. I use /etc/apt/source.list.d/dropbox.list file.

deb http://linux.getdropbox.com/ubuntu intrepid main
deb-src http://linux.getdropbox.com/ubuntu intrepid main

Either manually add the lines above to the /etc/apt/source.list.d/dropbox.list file or run the commands below to do the same.

root@dingo:~# echo "deb http://linux.getdropbox.com/ubuntu intrepid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dropbox.list
root@dingo:~# echo "deb-src http://linux.getdropbox.com/ubuntu intrepid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dropbox.list
root@dingo:~# cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dropbox.list

2. Update your packages list. Run “apt-get update“.

root@dingo:~# apt-get update

4. Restart nautilus to start Dropbox. You will see a new Dropbox icon in your system tray. Right click on it and select “start dropbox“. The daemon will download the binaries required and start the registration process.

root@dingo:~# killall nautilus

That’s it. Enjoy this get service.

Happy New Year , 2009 it’s here!!

2009-hny

Happy new year. I’m 3 days behind, talk about a good start.

New year night was good, spent it with Alan, Shirley, Raja and a shit load of beers while motivating each other on the many projects we plan to get started in the new year. Too much time has been waisted in the past just talking about shit, hopefully this year’s gonna be productive.

I’m not a big fan of new year resolutions but if you must know here’s mine;

1. Reduce and eventually quit smoking.
2. Exercise!!
3. Be a good son.
4. Be a good bf.
5. Be productive at work.
6. Roll out at least 3 side projects.
7. Contribute to at least 5 welfare related deeds.
8. Make more money from other avenues besides my full time job.
9. Travel to at least 5 countries.
10. Buy a house.

Let’s see how many get to cross out by end of year.

Vote for P1 W1MAX coverage areas

P1 W1MAX

P1 has a new marketing strategy out. Instead of planning where to “P1 W1MAX” enable, they are asking their users to vote for the next “P1 W1MAX” coverage areas. the current top 10;

1. Petaling Jaya, SS2
2. Kajang, Bandar Sungai Long
3. Kuala Lumpur, Jalan Ipoh
4. Petaling Jaya, Seksyen 14
5. Seri Kembangan, Taman Universiti Indah
6. Puchong, Taman Puchong Permai
7. Kepong, Desa Aman Puri
8. Petaling Jaya, Taman Bahagia
9. Johor Bahru, Taman Istimewa
10. Alor Setar, Pumpong

Well, I guess it’s a good idea but what happens to the poor souls living in lover density areas? Will they have to wait till all hot spots have been satisfied before being serviced? I hope not, P1 should identify key areas and continue their deployment as planed but keep the voting options open as a bonus feature. The voted areas should be serviced but not at the expense of the underpopulated areas.

If P1 is to kill StreamyX, one thing’s gonna be of utmost importance, that is to listen to your customers and keep them happy. StreamyX does a F**KED UP job at keeping it’s users happy and not to forget, they have the worst engineers ever!! I have been waiting for almost 2 months for an engineer to check my line!!

I need P1 W1MAX !! Vote for my area, “Taman Maluri, Cheras”.

TQ, TQ, :D
