Like two weeks ago I bought a nice jeans (looks good on my bottom, I was assured) but just a couple days later one of the fly buttons fell off. After a little inspection it was clear that it was a productionfault. But seriously, going back to the store in the city center, during Christmas time, just to find out they probably don't have this model in my size anymore? I'm not suicidal. But I'm handy
Actually my brother had the idea to use a rivet. Great idea since those buttons are actually 'rivet buttons' and we always have rivets around (no pun intended!).
Here is the broken button (before I drilled out the bottom so the rivet would fit)
As you can see the rivet is a little older, but the bolt will be removed anyway (for details about the rivet check out Wikipedia about blind rivets).
After putting the rivet and the fly button in place and straining my hands trying to operate the manual rivet tool, I got it. It's not perfect because the button is a little less in height and has parts of the rivet standing out, but it's tightly attached and works just fine.
View from the top with the outstanding rivet:
And a view from the inside. You can clearly see it's a different way of attaching the buttons.
Yesterday on my way to the cinema I took the subway and spotted a billboard while passing through the trainstation Hallerstraße. The billboard had nothing on it but a QR code on a plain white background. Not a single word, number, logo or anything. Naturally it arose my interest. So today I detoured myself on my way to uni to stop by the billboard again and took a photo:
Rather disappointing, though, I was hoping for more than just one simple link. Like a little riddle, a challenge and a scavenger hunt or something. But to not take the fun out of this I won't say anymore about it than feed the photo to the QR reader, check it out for yourself and maybe polish your German
I was suffering from a soundproblem on my fresh Ubuntu Karmic installation. All programs using OpenAL would stop playing sound and start to play scratchy sounds until sound drops completely out. Plus those programs will hang when trying to shut them down. For example OpenArena and Warzone2100 are affected which comes really hard to me
I tried a lot of different things with little success. Most solutions only helped for a moment until the problems came back. I think it's just that it works a little while after a reboot. Basically I don't know what really fixed the problem, but these changes here are in efffect right now and work for me.
Add this PPAs and upgrade ALSA to the newest version in there sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stesind-alsa-21 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
Also install the ALSA driver backports apt-get install linux-backports-modules-alsa-karmic-generic
Now you should have the newest ALSA running and sound should work again. I also applied some tweaks for HDA intel chipsets but I believe these don't do much of a difference. If you ask me to I'll provide these steps, too.
With the OpneMoko Freerunner comes a stylus which you need if you want to use for example the tiny keys of the keyboard. In general the software I know of is not finger-use ready, yet. So to use a stylus is a good idea. But you have to separately carry the stylus around with you because it's not attached to the phone or has a pocket it goes into whennot in use.
Actually I stole this idea from my friend:
Get a friend to give you a guitar pick. Thanks!
Get a piece of string. I found a black shoe lace in my moms shoe drawer. Thanks, mom!
Drill a hole in the guiter pick.
Tie the guitar pick to your Freerunner.
