Angus - coming in from the cold

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Still snow here in North Yorkshire, although what was forecast last night didn’t appear, or it was rather mild because of the snow clouds, but tonight the forecast is -10 degrees C, so very cold and more snow.

When Angus wants to come in to the house, he knocks on the window now.

iPad iOS 4.2.1 Folders

Monday, November 29th, 2010

Now I’ve upgraded my iPad to iOS 4.2.1 I can take advantage of folders to organise/categorise Apps downloaded from the AppStore.

iPad iOS 3.2.1 No Folders

iPad iOS 3.2.1 No Folders

Now my iPad has only two pages with folders to organize the Apps, rather than nine pages of icons (apps) as before with iOS 3.2.1.

It does take some time to create the folders and organise the apps, and for some strange reason, it’s quicker to do it on the iPad, than with iTunes!

Snow in November 2010

Sunday, November 28th, 2010

Snow has certainly come early this year to the Hamlet.

It started snowing on Wednesday 24th November 2010 and its not stopped, it’s a good job that the groceries were delivered today! It’s not looking likely that the snow will stop before the end of the week. So the car’s going no-where.

Here’s a little video clip of the snow covered garden. (Available in HD also!)

The birds in the background have not been added to the video track, thats the number of birds feeding in the garden, if you look towards the end of the garden. Don’t forget to feed the birds this winter!

Jailbroken iPad iOS 3.2.1 to iOS 4.2.1

Sunday, November 28th, 2010

JailbreakMe greeting

JailbreakMe greeting

Since Jailbreaking my iPad a few weeks ago, so I could run Adobe Flash in the Safari browser, I’ve noticed an element of instability with the device, these are the dangers of messing with the code!

Oops .. not for the faint hearted this one!

Oops .. not for the faint hearted this one!

Jailbreaking... Sit tight

Jailbreaking... Sit tight

Personally, I don’t visit alot of flash based websites, and I’m not really interested in the flash based adverts, so now that iOS 4.2.1 has been launched for the iPad on the 23 November 2010, and folders is one thing I really need to reduce the Pages and organise my 134 Apps, time to upgrade (just remember to save your (shsh blobs first, if you want to rollback to a previous iPad firmware version, before Upgrading your iPAD - use Tiny Umbrella here).

Flash in the pan! (iPad iOS 3.2.1)

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

Well it’s on my iPad actually!

A few days before iOS 4.x gets released for the iPad

There was nothing on the TV this evening, other than Black Hawk Down, and I’ve seen that so many times, so I got bored and enabled Flash on my iPad!

The flash elements appear as gray boxes and when you touch, them the flash starts to play.

So there you go, Flash on the iPad!

(oh, I did this for my Daddy, because he keeps asking me when Flash will be available for the iPad!). I think, he thinks I work for Apple (not!).

andysworld! Blog: Huawei E585 Unlock download!

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

iPad Gadget of the Year - Huawei E585 - also called MiFi device.

The Huawei E585 MiFi Moble WiFi Wireless 3G Modem is currently exclusively only available on the Three network and it’s SIM-locked to this network, if you insert another SIM from another provider O2, Voda UK, Orange or T-Mobile you’ll receive an “Insert SIM”, “Bad Sim”, “Sim Lock”, “Invalid SIM” or similiar error. If you would like to use this fanastic 3G Wireless Router on another network you’ll need to remove the SIM-LOCK. This is where you need to be very careful, there are various different ways of removing the SIM-LOCK, the correct way and the wrong way, some hacks have re-written the firmware, the result removes the SIM-LOCK, but leaves you with a E585 modem with modified firmware, and you’ll not be able to change the firmware in the future.

This method reveals the true SIMLOCK code, and then you enter this SIMLOCK code into the E585 via the web interface.

The method is very simple

  1. Insert SIM card from another network.
  2. Turn on MiFi (E585) Invalid SIM will be displayed.
  3. Connect MiFi (E585) to computer.
  4. Read and download flash contents from MiFi (E585).
  5. Unlock code is hidden in flash contents.
  6. Enter Unlock code in hidden menu.
  7. UNLOCKED.
  8. For details on unlocking and software please make a 10 GBP donation via PayPal.
  9. and by return I’ll send you the PDF document and software to unlock your E585.
  10. The donation pays for the hosting of this website, and thousands of hits and free information I’ve provided on unlocking Three Mobile Modems.

Welcome to my New Secret Garden

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Lets say the magic word - “Herbidacious”, and welcome to my New Secret Garden

           Entrance to my Secret Garden

I’m very fortunate, I’ve been after some land, to grow vegetables on for a while, we still await the outcome of funding for our local allotment association.

A neighbour in the hamlet has kindly agreeded to let me have part of the garden to cultivate and grow vegetables, because the garden is very large and it’s too much for them to maintain. This area of the garden used to be culivated and used as a vegetable plot, 10 years ago.

I’m very excited, don’t know, when I’ll find the time, but it’s very close to where I live. It’s going to be a lot of work, but follow the journey here, it starts now…but well worth it I’m sure.

Marina and the Diamonds, Leeds University 5th November 2010

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

Another fanastic concert by Marina and her band. The University union gig was packed in like sardines in a can. A cross section of the public from teenagers to Mums and Dads escorting their children, or Mum’s escorting their children! (got to be careful what I write, as there’s children reading the blog!).

This video is also available in HD, as it was shot in HD, on a Cisco Flip HD! Just change the you tube options, if you’ve got the bandwidth!

Bootleg DVDs available of the Marina and the Diamonds, Leeds University 5th November 2010 ‘Burger Queen Tour’ gig at a £5 donation towards DVD and p&p (UK), and electricity required to transcode and burn the DVDs!
