FathomROM page fixed

Many new things are happening this month. The biggest is my new Full-Time job.
Because of that, site updates and other fun stuff will take more time than normal.

Now for the main reason. I fixed the FathomROM page. It works again.

On a side note: my latest ROM releases are XDA UC Compatible. Enjoy. (Google it)
I will keep that setting on my ROMs from now on. If you want one without UC, let me know. Otherwise it’ll stay in.

As for other things: I am hoping someone on the internets has a WP7 device that is unlocked GSM. Testing purposes. Specifically a HTC Trophy GSM or a HTC Radar.


For Sale: HP Alphaserver DS20 $200

I’m selling my HP Alphaserver DS20. It’s a complete set, and it still runs.

It has:

1 (one) 500MHZ Alpha processor

512MB of RAM

6 (six) 9.6GB HDDs all operational

Two 750Watt Powersupplies (I think they’re 750 Watt)

A Tape Drive

The Factory installation of the OS… whatever that would happen to be

and a giant scratch on the side.

It boots, it runs, and it must go.

If you’re serious about getting it, please note that it’s big and heavy. I’d prefer someone local. I live in central Iowa, so anyone in IA would be a welcome future owner. I will also find an excuse to deliver to Nebraska or Minnesota, as I have reasons to go there anyways. If delivering out of state, the meeting time had better be set in stone, as I would be going a few hours out of my way.

I’m looking for atleast $200 for it. You could then part it out and sell it, or use it as a dev station, or tell people you have an obsolete space heater of a server for your UNIX collection. I don’t care. It just needs to go.

If I end up shipping it, that will be EXTRA and you will be suggesting the way to take it. USPS and UPS and FEDEX are not willing to take it due to it’s size.

I will post pictures later. My phone has them, and it’s battery is dead.

It’s a great system, but I just don’t use it. (and I”m saving for a HP TX2 convertible tablet PC)


Monday Update #5

So, here’s where I update you on all the little things I”ve blogged about.

1: There’s 2 threads about the LG Fathom Rom kitchens. One is on PPCGeeks in the LG Fathom section, the other is on XDA (Which I’ve already linked to)

2: I bricked my phone. New one should be here soon. I hope. It’s being replaced under warranty, and I know what I did wrong, so there’s no need to panic yet.

3: That Nintendo DS repair service thinger… I sent it out, and it came back. Turns out that I had used the wrong screws when putting it back together and one caused it to short out. Guy replaced the screws and the fuse. $20 for a working DS Lite (Total cost of the project was about $40)

4: I have an R4 card on the way. Will be fun to try and get it working the way I want it.

5: I’ve had my HP Touchpad for a few months now, and I’ve not been disappointed once. I would recommend Kindle Import from Preware if you want to use your own Kindle library on your PC instead of having to buy books.

6: I have 5 more days left in a classroom attempting to teach Freshmen in High School how to use Microsoft Office. My viewpoint has gone from the classic high school approach of “Stupid Freshmen” to “Ignorant freshmen who have no idea what the real world is like yet and need so much help getting them to understand the fact that there is more to life than their iPod and the cookie that was stolen from them that morning at lunch”

7: My roommates here are insane. It’s not bad though, just make sure to knock before entering.

8: Microsoft killed the Zune HD, but specifically said that it was the Zune HD hardware that wasn’t being made. That leaves it open for a new Zune to pop up with some WPMango goodness hiding inside.

9: I got a free copy of minecraft. You can find me on begin.punchingblocks.com… just don’t steal my castle again. it was annoying last time.

and finally:

10: Thank you to all who have donated to me so far. It’s a really big motivational thinger when I know people actually appreciate what I do. I’m glad someone likes what I do these days. I’m still working on this whole Palm Outlook X64 fiasco, but I don’t think I’ll get very far. Sorry.

That’s it for this monday. I can’t promise much this week, because of tons of homework, but I will try to post important things as they happen. Keep your eyes out for a Fathom ROM based on bits of V5 and V7 along with the latest of that line of builds from MS to crop up on PPCGeeks and XDA soon. I’m still cooking, but I can’t test until I get my new phone.


Test Two: Moving the blog (Finally)

I got GoDaddy to finally work properly with my blog.

Here’s hoping that it works.


if it works, please leave a comment and try to register. I’ll see what I need to fix still.


A poem.

No… I’m not dead… just working

Got 5 days of work last week, so I didn’t do much on the internets.
This coming week is hopefully the same way.
I’ve decided to stop working on the entire Metro theme… There’s already a good one out there. I’ll link to it later.
Lockscreen is going well. No idea how to add a silence slider to the lock screen… Also working on getting the incoming calls “metrofied”
Shouldn’t be too much longer until an update.

Help me test my new BLOG!

You’ll find it at : www.pizzaboy192.com/blog/

Let me know if it works by leaving me a comment on the new blog.

This blog will slowly be transfered over as I switch away from WordPress (Or i’ll iFrame this one… depends on how much mess I have)
