This is an update to my instructions on running the JavaFX 1.0 SDK on Linux. Those instructions do not work on the dmg image for the 1.1 version of the SDK. Mike (thanks Mike!) posted a comment on that blog mentioning a small change that needed to be made. To get JavaFX 1.1 on Linux,…
Running the JavaFX 1.0 SDK on Linux
The JavaFX 1.0 SDK was released today. I’ve played with the preview SDK, so I was pretty excited to try out the 1.0 SDK. Inexplicably, and this was the case with the preview SDK as well, Sun hasn’t released a version of the SDK for Linux. However, this wasn’t a problem because it was possible…
JavaFX: The New Hotness
I went to JavaOne a few months ago. It was a pretty neat experience and I learnt a lot of cool things. One of the things Sun was touting was the JavaFX family of technologies. It allows you to create RIA (Rich Internet Applications) using JavaFX Script, a domain-specific language built on top of Java….
I bumped up my line speed from 640k/256k to 1.5M/896k. Expect faster downloads from here!
So I’m finally back online. I’ve moved into my new apartment and everything is set up nice and pretty. Woohoo! It took me for ever to get my DSL because the people at Qwest decided that they just didn’t feel like setting up my DSL. The trouble I went through… jeez… Well, anyway. It’s up…
FreeBSD machine configured
My FreeBSD machine is configured to the Cisco 678… I just need to figure out how to configure sharity light again… Hmm… Oh yeah, I took out the 20Gb harddrive from the XP box and put it into the FreeBSD box. FreeBSD recognizes it. No surprise.
Got my Cisco 678 modem today. It’s set up and seems to be running fine. Ran into a few quirks (why does this always happen to me?) but ironed it all out. Need to configure my FreeBSD machine now.
New DSL modem, a possiblity of Employment and not going to California
Qwest is sending me a Cisco 678. The 675 doesn’t work with our current line. Also, using the Intel Pro/DSL 3200 USB modem is a pain. It royally sucks. Plus, my FreeBSD machine doesn’t recognize it. If I get the 678, I can just hook it up to the uplink port of the hub and…
Hey! How’s it going? My exams get over tomorrow… actually TODAY!!!… YESSSSS!!!! HAHAHAHA! Free at last… three glorious weeks of doing what I like most – ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Except playing StarCraft and watching TV and partying and stuff like that… Oh yes… So Metallica has gone and tattled on Napster. Publicity stunt. Well, a certain…
DSL Kicks Ass!
Hey everyone… Finals are here and they get over on the 10th… so you MIGHT see stuff up here. I’m thinking of doing a little work on the links page and adding some stuff here and there. I should be getting my scanner this week. HP said that they’re gonna send me a new one….
